SSAB is a Nordic and US-based steel company. SSAB offers value added products and services developed in close cooperation with its customers to create a stronger, lighter and more sustainable world. SSAB has employees in over 50 countries. SSAB Global BI team provides a data analysis platform and works as a data storing, enhancing and visualization hub for various business functions. The team gathers and combines information from history, present day and forecasts of tomorrow.

SSAB Global BI team is seeking two new junior business intelligence analysts who are enthusiastic about information and the stories behind it. If change is what you love and problem solving is a game you enjoy playing, we have a great opportunity waiting for you. We are looking for a perfect mix of a business person and a data nerd. It’s alright to be just one of them currently, but you need to have the desire to understand and learn the other side as well. You are also preferably just finishing your studies, recently graduated or at the very beginning of your career.

Education is only one piece of the puzzle. Above all, it tells about your abilities to deliver and to learn new things. Suitable university or university of applied science degrees include knowledge management, industrial economics, information networks, data science, machine learning etc. The name of the degree is not important, but it should be interdisciplinary combining financial studies and computer or knowledge studies.

We appreciate hugely if you have gathered experience of some of these from school or work:
•Internals of business processes e.g. a summer job in a business function
•Problem solving
•Data visualization e.g. dashboards, info graphics
•Data retrieval e.g. SQL-language
•Data analysis e.g. usage of statistical data models
In addition, we expect fluent English and Finnish language skills and a social mindset.

The work of a junior business intelligence analyst consists of end user support and development of BI systems. Junior business intelligence analysts are in the frontline between our senior developers and our internal clients. Every day there are new people from various countries with their questions and they need your support and assistance. An eye for details and perseverance are also assets which will help your daily work, as a junior business intelligence analyst’s work includes testing and validation tasks.

SSAB offers to those who will be selected a global working environment with colleagues around the world. You will also have the possibility to learn leading BI-tools and together with the business side master real life problems using them. While slowly gaining more skills and a better understanding of the company, your career and responsibilities will grow with you.

If this seems like an interesting path for you, apply online and send your application and CV in English by the 1st of September. Both positions will be located in Käpylä - Helsinki, Finland. For further information about the positions, you can contact Veera Kuivanen (tel. +358 50 314 3556) on Thursdays between 13-15.
