Tegus is the leading market intelligence platform for key decision makers. We power some of the world’s most well-respected institutional investors, corporations, and consultancies through the largest and most comprehensive database of primary and market information. Our products and services enable clients to discover unmatched insights and answers to the most challenging questions they face to help them make better informed decisions. (And because a job description can only contain a fraction of how we operate, click here to learn more about the Tech Team at Tegus!)
Tegus has grown rapidly over the last 24 months: we’ve acquired 3 different companies, grown from a single product to managing several product lines and grown to over 650+ employees. With this growth has come significant challenges delivering trustworthy, accurate and useful data to stakeholders across the company: our systems have become fragmented, we suffer from duplicative tooling, and we lack a clear vision for how to turn data into a strength.
As the head of data at Tegus, your job will be to solve these challenges. You will work with senior management and department leaders to understand the company's data and reporting needs, then design and implement an overarching strategy for making sure every team at Tegus has the data they need to perform at the highest level. Departments at Tegus are highly data driven and there is significant demand for a unified approach to internal analytics.
While analytics has a significant technical component, we are particularly interested in hearing from candidates with experience in business operations or other roles that hinged on driving consensus and effective decision making across different functions and departments.
- Develop and implement a strategy for building a best-in-class data program at Tegus.
- Work closely with senior management, department leaders and other stakeholders; deeply understand Tegus’s product, processes and business needs.
- Consolidate and rationalize Tegus’s disparate data tooling.
- Oversee data governance, definition management and quality control.

- Hire and lead a team of analysts and data engineers in developing Tegus’s data tooling. The data team is currently 4 individuals and expected to grow over the next year.

- 5+ years hiring and managing data analysts
- Experience and confidence working with stakeholders across a wide variety of roles, including senior management.
- Experience defining and managing data governance and access across a large organization is preferred.

- Understanding of global data privacy regulations and experience matching data privacy requirements with business needs. This role is not solely responsible for data privacy, but will work closely with our Data Protection Officer and data privacy specialists.
- Experience with financial services is a plus but not required, and specific finance training is not required. While finance will be a stakeholder for this role, this role is not responsible for Financial Planning and Analysis.
