French Speaking Data Analyst / Belgium / 6 months / Start ASAP

Within the Location Insights team in my clients Advanced Telco Services (ATS), you will be in charge of delivering location-based insights to businesses (B2B), using big data sources (mobile network and IoT) and open data.
You will translate business requests into big data requirements and extract the needed big data from multiple data sources to perform your analyses. Your analyses will transform the data into meaningful insights for external customers, supporting their strategic decision making.
You will explore and examine data from multiple disparate sources, go through all incoming data with the goal of discovering a previously hidden insight. You do not simply collect and report on data, but also look at it from many angles, determine what it means, and then you recommend ways to apply the data. There will be lots of opportunity to research and drive innovation by digging in our challenging data sources.
You contribute to the overall efficiency by developing data marts and procedures that further automate the delivery of recurrent reports and analyses, from data extraction to visualisation.
You suggest new types of data analyses, look for inspiration in other sectors and companies, and contribute to the overall knowledge building of the business intelligence team.
You will present your results and conclusions, to discuss them with multi-functional project teams (marketing, project management,…), and to communicate to a technical as well as non-technical audience.
