Data and Analytics Competence Lead at Pleo

Data & Analytics Competence Lead

What we stand for is delegated company spending. And on the face of things, that might not sound exciting. But, to us and to our customers, it really is. We believe that the way that work works today is outdated. We think that companies can delegate to their employees more – to support their ownership and to show them trust. No more expense reports, no more out-of-pocket spending. This puts trust in employees so that they can buy what they need when they need it. Future of work stuff, you know?

But let us introduce you to the two domains this role will be part of:

Admin Experience and Spending Journey At Pleo

You’ll be working to improve the lives of our three main personas: the employee, the company admin and the finance teams. Whether it’s about getting your entire workforce smoothly onboarded to Pleo, guiding an individual to make their first purchase or helping finance teams get the right VAT details in place for expenses: we believe there’s a lot of time to be saved and we can do so in a delightful way.

The millions of expenses that run through our product provide interesting insights into spending behaviour, that we’re keen to leverage to continuously improve our user experience.

  • Join our community of 30+ talented data & analytics professionals working from more than 10 different locations worldwide with backgrounds in data analytics, analytical engineering and data engineering.
  • Work with a modern data & analytics toolkit including Looker, BigQuery, dbt, Airflow, Fivetran, Segment, Amplitude, & Kafka.

At Pleo, we use English for all our internal communication to keep everyone on the same page; please submit your application in English unless otherwise stated above.

We’re on a mission to make everyone feel valued at work. That’s only achievable if our team reflects the diversity of the world around us – and that starts with you, hitting apply, even if you are worried you might not tick all the boxes! We embrace and encourage people from all backgrounds to apply – regardless of race/ethnicity, colour, religion, nationality, gender, sex, sexual orientation, age, marital status, disability, neurodiversity, socio-economic status, culture or beliefs.

Not everyone interviews the same: if you have accessibility needs that you would like us to know about, send an email to our Inclusion team at and we’ll make sure to design an interview format that works for you.

Why work here?

Working at Pleo means you’re working on something very exciting: the future of work. Through fintech we’ve seen a way to impact how people work; we think company spending should be delegated to all employees and teams, that it should be as automated as possible, and that it should drive a culture of responsible spending. Based on some pretty amazing Series C-round investment in 2021 we think we’re onto something big.

So, in a nutshell, that’s Pleo. Today we are a 800+ team, from over 74 nations, sitting in our Copenhagen HQ, London, Stockholm, Berlin, Madrid, Montreal, or Lisbon offices and quite a few full-time remotes in 35 other countries! Being HQ’d out of Copenhagen means we’re inspired by sensible things like a good work-life balance. If you don’t work in the office with us we’ll help you get up the best remote setup possible, and will fly you in for our amazing team camps
