Data Analyst (Operations)
South Africa (Remote)
Please note that as this is a remote based position, we are open to applications from candidates based throughout the UK and EMEA region.
Yoco is a FinTech company. We focus on building tools and services to help small and micro businesses get paid, run better, and grow. We believe in unlocking entrepreneurial potential anywhere, empowering people to thrive and driving our economy forward.
We strive to delight our customers. The Customer Operations teams are on the frontlines, engaging directly with our merchants every day. As Yoco grows, the ways in which we serve our merchants needs to evolve alongside. Data plays a key part in this evolution, infusing processes with intelligence, identifying areas of poor experience and proactively planning for growth, rather than simply reacting to it.
Your objective will be to apply your skills and experience, in collaboration with various teams within the area, in support of building smart, scalable, delightful and data driven operations.
We are looking for a data-driven, structured, analytical thinker to help us drive actionable insights, build out the data capabilities in the Customer Operations space, improve the quality of data, accuracy of reporting and automate repeatable tasks.
You will report directly to the Data Lead within Customer Operations; and your role has the opportunity for collaboration across multiple teams across the company. This role is embedded within the Customer Operations area.

Yoco is growing quickly! We aim to continuously improve the quality of our Customer Support and ensure the team is enabled for success.
