Data Manager


Information Technology, Data Science
Malmesbury - United Kingdom


Data is the lifeblood of any modern organisation and Dyson is no different. Your job as Data Asset Manager will be to own the data catalogue for Dyson, not just building this out as the data architects progress their work, but championing this data across the organisation. Success means that anyone in the business will be able to understand what data we hold, how trustable it is (e.g. good quality), how this information can be used, and how they can access it.

You will be educating the organisation on how to be much more data driven. You will be seen as the data wholesaler for Dyson and our platform will be the “go-to” place for data, preventing new silos to be formed. Understanding Data Assets is now widely regarded as being critical to help drive business value. Data Asset Management (DAM) is the domain which conserves, curates and exploits these valuable enterprise Data Assets. It has the potential to generate significant business impact in every solution delivered within the organisation. Knowledge gained will be used to support both the work being undertaken by the Data Product Managers and the Data Architecture teams, and the wider business.
