    Senior Data Analyst for Circularity, Amsterdam


    We are looking for a Senior Data Analyst to join us in developing new revolutionizing ways for IKEA to create a better and more sustainable life at home for hundreds of millions of customers globally.

    Our diverse and global team within Data & Analytics is growing even more and we would love to talk with you, if you recognize yourself in some of the following:

    • Consider data to be the starting point for solving (almost) any business problem

    • Enjoy figuring out how to use your extensive knowledge of SQL and code to derive insights from large datasets in order to solve real-life, fast-paced business problems

    • Have an extensive background in analytics, computer science, engineering or equivalent (at least MS or equivalent)

    • Loves to visualize data through advanced visualization tools and to tell compelling data stories to senior non-technical stakeholders

    • Able to work with a balanced trade-off between care and speed, and understands that rapid insights may come at an initial cost of rigorousness

    • Have experience in digital product development and how translate to business input into testable hypotheses, features/models, or metrics

    • Are a team player who takes ownership, builds cross-functional relationships with senior peers and loves sharing knowledge with more junior Data Analysts

    • Have at least 5 years relevant experience as a Business Analyst, Data Analyst, Web Analyst or similar

    • Are passionate about the possibilities of Data & Analytics and the value it can generate for business

    • Are a curious world class problem solver who wants to keep learning!

    This is our wish list! If you don’t recognize yourself in all these points, you might still be an excellent candidate for the role. We like to think long-term and invest in people’s development together with us.

    The IKEA culture and values are very much a part of our business and day to day work life. For you to thrive and grow with IKEA it’s important for us that you share our values! You can read more regarding our values and life at IKEA on our website


    One of the IKEA ambitions is to develop circular capabilities in all our products by 2030. In this role, you’ll lead the transformation of IKEA into a more data driven company by ensuring that data and insights are frequently and widely used in Circularity in Group Digital to reinforce, alter, or largely impact present and future decisions on business and product strategy.

    For example, we are developing models, dashboards and tools to answer questions like:

    • Can we understand our customers’ interest and behavior around living a sustainable life at home so that we can develop circular offers?

    • How could we help prolonging the life of products and materials throughout digital solutions?

    • How can we enable our customers to acquire, care for and pass on our IKEA products?

    • Can we support the many people to create connections to things by enabling sharing, and inspiring?

    • Can we enable the reactivation of inactive products?

    • How can we track our products lifecycle and journeys (quality, status, damages, different events)


    You will work in Data & Analytics together with other Data Analysts, Data Scientists, Data Engineers, Data Stewards and Data Architects. Together you will be joining cross-functional teams consisting of colleagues from Technology, Product and Design from Sustainability. All of you together will be creating the best solutions to serve our customers with sustainability products in their daily lives.

    IKEA has long been a global leader in home furnishing. We are proud of our vision to improve the everyday life of the many people. But our industry is quickly changing, and we need to adapt to stay competitive. To facilitate our digital growth ambition, we are working in different locations world-wide. The home office for this role will be Amsterdam but we act as one global team and work together on global solutions.

    We see so many opportunities for what we can accomplish and have the ambition to be a world class team. At the same time, we believe that our work is not just about solving business problems, but also about learning and having fun together.


    • Work on some very interesting problems as described above, and you are encouraged to spot new opportunities or to collaborate with Data & Analytics colleagues in other specialist teams

    • Opportunities to have global impact with your work

    • Flexible and modern tools: we deploy on Google Cloud Platform and we use a lot of open source tools across the board

    • Hardware and Operating System your choice

    • A team of great colleagues to learn with and from (with world-class experience across all aspects of Data & Analytics)

    • Continuous learning (we aim to spend 20% of our working time on learning)

    • Flexible and friendly working environment in a truly value-based company

    • Modern and well-equipped office in our new Digital Hub that will house up to 500 co-workers, located in the harbour area north-west of Amsterdam’s city centre.


    Does this sound like your next challenge? IKEA offers an exciting and empowering work environment in a global workplace. And as the world’s leader at life at home, you have exceptional opportunities to grow and develop together with us.
