Save the Children

BI Developer

We are currently recruiting for a Business Intelligence Developer to join our IT Hub in Nairobi.

You will be joining an organization that is currently mid-way through an ambitious transformation to ensure that our IT is fit for the future and delivers the intelligence the business needs.

We are revamping or replacing all of our key systems and applications, from best in-class IT systems (Oracle HRIS, SAP Ariba) to in-house NGO-specific systems for Awards and Program management, as well as introducing a state-of-the-art, cloud-based integration platform.

The environment in which we operate also offers unique challenges from a technical point of view: will our solutions operate effectively worldwide, even in a refugee camp?

Are we designing the systems to protect our beneficiaries’ personal data with the utmost care?

Are we designing a cost effective solution, bearing in mind that each dollar has been donated to us and we are accountable for how we spend the donations?

Are we making sure that the precious data we collect from the field becomes a source of understanding and better decisions?

We are looking for candidates who have:

  • Experience of working with SQL Server databases, including creating & modifying T-SQL scripts, stored procedures, functions, triggers, writing ad-hoc queries and dynamic SQL
  • Experience of working closely with non-technical staff, demonstrating an ability to translate and negotiate non-technical requirements into a detailed technical specification
  • Good interpersonal, verbal, and written communication skills with a proven ability to explain complex technical ideas and problems clearly to non-experts
  • Experience of delivering solutions internationally
  • Keen to learn new technologies, especially in BI

It is desirable if you have:

  • Experience of working with Microsoft’s BI technology stack SSIS, SSRS and/or SSAS (tabular and multidimensional models)
  • Experience working with BI presentation tools (e.g. Excel, Power Pivot, Power View and Power BI)
  • Experience working with BI reporting in SharePoint
  • Experience of working within an agile project delivery environment and with offshore project team members
  • Experience working with JIRA

We offer a competitive salary and benefits package.
