What’s Hot in NYC’s Data Market? Modern Analytics Engineering is on the Rise
New York has always set the stage for what’s next. When it comes to the latest in the tech stack, it’s modern Analytics Engineering is the latest addition to the Data and Analytics industry. The role of Analytics Engineer is one of the newer positions in the world of Data, and in NYC, a hub of media, advertising, and e-commerce – it’s emerging as one of the most in-demand markets in New York and beyond.
Why You Might Need an Analytics Engineer
Data-driven businesses interested in building value for their customers often turn to a mix of Analytics and Data Modelling Engineer. The Data Engineer creates the infrastructure, platform development, and Data movement for the purpose of Machine Learning and Analytics downstream. Ultimately, the Analytics Engineer role is quite similar to the typical Data Engineer but differs in that it doesn’t involve platform development or infrastructure the same way.
Analytics Engineering is a relatively new term within the last five years and are coming into this field from a variety of backgrounds. But the most in-demand background moving into this role is Data Engineering. Why? For the most part, it’s those individuals who can not only script in Python but also do Python programming on the backend.
Key Aspects of this Role:
- Warehouse architecture (e.g., Snowflake, Redshift, BigQuery), and Data Modeling with a popular and relatively new tool dbt (originally Fishtown Analytics), for use by Analysts.
- ETL Development
- Data visualization
- Other tech such as Fivetran, Stitch, and Python
With SQL and Data modelling being the real meat and potatoes of the position, people often move into an Analytics Engineering position that requires little Python experience – however, the salary you can expect if Engineering or Data Science experience and proficiency in Python is substantially higher. It poses an interesting opportunity for Analysts, Data modellers, and Data visualization folks interested in learning a modern engineering stack to make a transition into a more technical, and higher-paying role.
Why You May Want to Consider an Analytics Engineering Role
People move into this role from careers as Analysts, Data Scientists, Data Engineers, and even Software Engineers, a unique career progression in this industry. For the already heavily technical professionals – this is a role that provides both engineering challenges and the chance to work close to the business. Wherever you are on your career journey, Analytics Engineer is a great opportunity from a career growth perspective and can help get you where you want to go. You’re no cog in the wheel here. As an Analytics Engineer, you can help drive decisions that make an impact for your company.
Analytics Engineers on Your Team Can Drive Value for Your Business
Though this position is relatively new in the grand scheme of technological advances to help drive business, it is in demand and growing exponentially. So, it’s important to know if you’re business needs someone to fill this role, you need to know what you’re looking for. For companies, whose main objective is making Data-driven decisions regarding customer retention, marketing campaign conversion, supply chain analytics, etc.

Ten Tips for Writing the Perfect Data & Analytics CV | Harnham Recruitment post
It’s no secret that jobs within the Data & Analytics market are more competitive than ever and with some jobs having hundreds of applicants (if not more), having a CV that stands out is more important than ever. It’s well known that many Hiring Managers spend a short amount of time reviewing a candidate, so you need to consider what they can do to have the best impact. We’ve seen it all over the years, from resumes sorely lacking detail through to those that have almost every accomplishment written over too many pages – so we’ve complied a list of the 10 things that could help you create a resume that makes an impact, complete with top tips from our team of experienced recruiters.1. Keep it Simple All of our recruiters are unanimous in suggesting to candidates that the perfect CV length is no more than two pages, or one for a graduate or more junior candidate. Sam, our Corporate Accounts manager suggests that candidates keep it simple:“In analytics, it’s all about the detail and less about how fun your CV looks. My best piece of advice would be to keep it to two pages, use the same font without boxes or pictures, and bold titles for the company and role. It sounds pretty simple but it’s really effective and often what our clients seem to be drawn to the most”. 2. Consider the audience & avoid jargon Before your CV gets to the Hiring Manager, it may be screened by an HR or recruitment professional so it’s crucial to ensure that your CV is understandable enough that every person reviewing it could gauge your fit. Whilst showing your technical ability is important, ensure that you save yourself from anything excessively technical meaning only the Hiring Manager could understand what you have been doing. 3. Showcase your technical skills There is, of course, a need to showcase your technical skills. However, you should avoid a long list of technologies, instead clarify your years of experience and competence with each of the tools. Within the Data & Analytics market specifically, clarifying the tools that you used to analyse or model is very important and writing those within your work experience can be very helpful. Wesley, who heads up our French team, explained where candidates can often go wrong: “Candidates often write technical languages on their CV in long lists and forget to make them come to life. My clients are looking for them to give examples of how and when they have used the listed tools and languages”4. Consider the impact of your workJust writing words such as ‘leadership’ or ‘collaboration’ can often easily be over-looked. It’s important that you are able to showcase the impact that you work has beyond the traditionally technical. Think about how you can showcase the projects that you have lead or contributed to and what impact it had on the business. Often people forget the CV isn’t about listing your duties, it’s about listening your accomplishments. Ewan, our Nordics Senior Manager brings this to life: “I would always tell someone that whenever you are stating something you did in a job you always follow up with the result of that. For example, ‘I implemented an Acquisition Credit Risk Strategy from start to finish’ – but then adding, ‘which meant that we saw an uplift of 15% of credit card use’”. Joe, New York Senior Manager, concurs: “Actionable insights are important, results driven candidates are what our clients are looking for. So instead of ‘Implemented A/B Testing’, I’d get my candidates to make that more commercial, such as ‘Implemented A/B test that result in 80% increase in conversion’”. 5. Use your Personal Summary A personal summary is effective when it comes to technical positions, as some people can often overlook them. Use this to summarise your experience and progression as well as indicate the type of role and opportunity you are looking for. If this is highly tailored to the role you are applying for, it can have an extremely positive impact. For example: ‘Highly accomplished Data Scientist, with proven experience in both retail and banking environments. Prior experience managing a team of five, and proven ability in both a strategic and hands on capabilities. Proven skills in Machine Learning and Statistical Modelling with advanced knowledge of Python, R and Hadoop. Seeking Data Science Manager role in a fast-paced organisation with data-centric thinking at it’s heart’. 6. Consider what work and non-work experience is relevant If you’ve been working in the commercial technical sphere for more than five years, it’s likely that your part time work experience during university or the non-technical roles that you took before you moved into your space are no longer as relevant. Ensure you are using your space to offer the Hiring Manager recent, relevant and commercially focused information. However, do not leave gaps just because you took a role that didn’t relate to your chosen field, you don’t need to describe what you did but have the job title, company and dates to ensure you are highlighting a clear history of your experience. It’s important to note that you are more than just your work experience as well, Principal Consultant Conor advises candidates to talk about more than just their work accomplishments:“Listing non work achievements can help make the CV stand out. If someone has a broad range of achievements and proven drive outside of work, they will probably be good at their job too. Plus, it’s a differentiating point. My clients have found interesting talking points with people who have excelled in sports, instruments, languages and more specifically for the Analytics community – things like maths and Rubik’s cube competitions”. 7. Don’t forget your education For most technical roles, education is an important factor. Ensure that you include your degree and university/college clearly as well as the technical exposure you had within this. If you did not undertake a traditionally technical subject, make sure you highlight further courses and qualifications that you have completed near this section to highlight to the Hiring Manager that you have the relevant level of technical competence for the role. 8. Don’t include exaggerated statementsIt goes without saying that if you are going to detail your experience with a certain technical tool or software that you could be asked to evidence it. Saying your proficient in R when you’ve done a few courses on it won’t go over well, especially if there are technical tests involved in the interview process. At the same time, don’t undervalue your expertise in certain areas either, your strengths are what the Hiring Managers is looking for. 9. Don’t get too creativeUnless you’re in a creative role it’s unlikely that the Hiring Manager will be looking for something unique when it comes to the CV. In fact, very few people can pull of an overly flashy CV, most of them being those that work specifically in design. When in doubt, stick to standard templates and muted tones. 10. Tailor, Tailor, Tailor! Time is of the essence and when it comes to reviewing CVs and you don’t have long to make an impact. Make sure to customise your resume using keywords and phrases that match the job description (if they match your own, of course). For example, if the role is looking for a Business Intelligence Analyst with proven skills in Tableau you would not just claim, “experience in Data Visualisation”, you’d list the software name, “experience in Tableau based Data Visualisation”. Although every job description is different, all it takes is a few small tweaks to ensure your maximising your skillset.

Data & Analytics In The Midlands | Harnham Recruitment post
Known as the heart of the UK, the Midlands prides itself on its incredible economic output and vast-ranging expertise. With over 4 million people employed in the Midlands alone, the region provides one third of all UK energy jobs as well as a large stake of manufacturing and advanced engineering employment. Indeed, it accounts for over 20 per cent of UK manufacturing output and houses world-renowned businesses in automotive, telecoms and energy. Over the past (nearly) two years, all 41 industries that make up the bustling region have had to quickly adapt to the challenges created by the coronavirus pandemic. Data & Analytics has played a significant part in this, with business leaders in the Midlands (and the rest of the UK) looking to strengthen existing data teams to help them make better informed decisions, streamline processes and innovate more efficiently. As we look back at 2021, we explore how the Midlands has made its mark as one of the UK’s leading data hubs and the trends we have seen emerge from another turbulent year. Big data, data engineers and marketing analysis are keyOver the past eight months, employers have been looking for very specific skillsets in the Midlands. Unlike regions such as Manchester, where we saw a big spike in demand for web analytics and digital marketing due to the region’s growing digital landscape, employers in the Midlands have been asking for those who have expertise in big data, data engineering and customer and marketing analytics. With the Midlands’ prominent manufacturing and engineering presence, these ideal skillsets come as no surprise. Companies are looking to manage huge datasets, collected at multiple stages of production, and turn them into actionable insights. Cloud-based experience is crucial2021 has also seen the demand for cloud-based experience as a pre-requisite come to fruition. Knowledge and understanding of applications like Google Cloud, Amazon Web Service (AWS) and Azure are critical. In their journey to become more cost-effective without any effect on productivity, innovation or ability, companies are looking for candidates who can manage and deliver a wide range of services via cloud-based applications. Unicorn candidates are in demandDespite their rarity, unicorn candidates have become the most sought-after talent in 2021. With companies looking to become leaner, streamlining their processes as much as possible, a candidate with both back-end and front-end experience is worth their weight in gold. The ability to both be data literate for processes behind the scenes as well as understand, identify trends in and effectively communicate data analysis would blow any other competition out of the water.Product managers: An emerging role Product Managers have never been a core role during my time at Harnham but, over the past year, this has changed – especially in the Midlands. To help create a more efficient internal data pipeline, it became clear to many businesses that there was a skills gap that needed plugging. Many employers needed someone who could not only work between the front-end and the back-end of the data stream but could also run effectively alongside it throughout the whole product journey. Essentially, they required a data literate project manager who could help build new products, whether that be data or software, from roadmap through to launch and monetisation. These candidates need to not only have brilliant management skills, but also an in-depth, technical understanding of the data pipeline. In the past year, we have gathered as many Project Manager roles as Data Analyst roles. Our Midlands division are speaking to at least two or three candidates per day. To go from nothing to this sort of scale in less than a year is unheard of, and is truly testament to how quickly the Data & Analytics landscape is changing. It’s been another rollercoaster year for UK businesses and businesses have needed to continue to be agile in order to jump over new hurdles. Nevertheless, the Midlands as a region has evolved greatly and the sectors it houses have attracted over £1.6bn of investments. As we head into 2022, I am sure there will be more change on the horizon for the region, as well as the rest of the country, and the Data & Analytics market will once again develop to match whatever changes may come its way. If you’re looking for a new role or to build out your Data team, Harnham can help.
