Job's description

🌍 Can you help us change the world?

Yes, you read that correctly. It sounds grand, but we’ve got big ideas at Mews. We’re transforming the world of hospitality, re-imagining the industry with a best-in-class cloud-based property management solution for hotels, hostels, apartments, and so much more.

We’re on the lookout for ambitious, tenacious and passionate people who want to join the next generation of innovators and disrupt the hospitality industry with us. Sound good so far? If you’re a Data Analyst, keep reading and tumble down the Mews rabbit hole... 🐇

🧑🏻‍💻 About the role

First things first: you want to know what you’re actually applying for. It’s impossible to capture every nuance of a role – especially at a rapidly growing company like Mews – but if we had to distil it down to a job description (which we do, because this is a job description), it would be this:

We’re building a dynamic and influential commercial finance function from scratch and you might just be the crucial piece of the puzzle we’re looking for. In this role you will help us figure out which FP&A tool to buy and implement and manage the flows of our data into the tool. You will be the commercial finance team’s guru in all things data and challenge the status quo in how we understand the company’s numbers. You’ll support our monthly rolling forecast process alongside our team of finance business partners and drive continuous improvement in how we use data to drive informed decisions throughout the company.

Our commercial finance team don’t just stick numbers in spreadsheets; we inform, challenge and influence better decision-making across the company. As a tech (Saas + Fintech) company we’ve got loads of data but we’re not leveraging it to the max. In this role, you’ll be focused on driving value out of the data with a particular focus on influencing how we use it to inform our financial planning and business decisions.

We currently use Excel files with some VBA and SQL to push and pull data into our own planning database. But you’ll help us transition onto a new planning tool and consolidate the data sources which are most relevant to our continuous reforecasting and decision-making support. The company also uses PowerBI and Looker so you’ll have lots of opportunities to develop skills with these tools and leverage them to help us direct the business.

✅ Your mission, should you choose to accept it:

  • Help us choose an FP&A tool to scale with and be a key driver of the implementation
  • Figure out, with the team, what the most useful data sources are in the company to inform our planning and decision making and pipe it into our commercial finance systems
  • Support on ad hoc analysis and business cases to help us make well informed and modelled decisions
  • Drive continuous improvement and learning within the commercial finance team on the data we have, how we should use it and the direction we should be going in
  • Represent the commercial finance team to the wider business data experts (e.g. we have a large data analytics team within our R&D function and a separate team of experts with our Bizops team)


🤝️ You’ll be a great fit if you bring a few of the below with you:

  • Confident with SQL, VBA, Excel and a master user of Google to figure out the stuff you don’t yet know
  • PowerBI and Looker experience would be handy - or confident and motivated to quickly pick it up
  • Able to communicate well with both technical experts (to understand the data) and users (to understand what we are trying to achieve or understand)
  • Some experience supporting finance teams – FP&A would be especially handy


🎉 What’s in it for you?

Did you know that Mews was voted the Best Place to Work in Hotel Tech for 2 years running? You do now. Most of that is down to our inspiring team, but part of it is because of some pretty amazing perks. As well as awesome colleagues and stimulating work, you'll get:

  • Unlimited holiday (no, this is not a typo) 🏖
  • Health and wellness plans 🙏🏽

  • Regular team events, socials and a legendary annual company gathering, Mews Con (the only con that’s actually a pro) 🥳

🤷🏻 Who is Mews?

We want to get to know you, so it’s only fair we tell you a little bit about ourselves first. We were founded in 2012 by a team of former hoteliers, and since then we’ve been transforming hospitality for both hotel staff and guests.

Essentially, Mews is a powerful software platform that acts as a central nervous system for hotels, hostels, apartments and more. We use smart tech and automation to make day-to-day operations easier for hoteliers, so they can focus on the thing that really matters: providing remarkable guest experiences.

More than 2,000 properties across 60+ countries are powered by Mews, with more joining every week. Bookings, payments, operations, guest management – everything a hotel needs to operate can be done through our solution. We work with some amazing hotels, including Sage Hospitality Group, Machefert Group, The Student Hotel, and Tsogo Sun Hotels.

Life at Mews

That’s what we do, but what about who we are? Mews’ culture is special and difficult to capture in words, which makes writing this tricky. You'll experience the freedom to be yourself and the ability to watch your ideas come to life. You’ll have an open line of communication and an open invitation to after-work drinks, be they virtual or in-person. Sometimes the work can be challenging and there can be a lot of it, but you’ll always be able to rely on those around you.

Yes, we’re ambitious and we move fast, but we know the value of fun and taking a breather. Every month we have a Wellness Wednesday, a day off that you can use to boost your health, whether that’s a long lie-in, a trip to the gym, or anything in between. We have slack channels for almost every interest imaginable, and an all-company meeting every Friday gives you the chance to ask any question to our leadership team. Oh, and we love our pets. To get more of an idea what life at Mews is like (and to see dozens of cute cats, dogs, and hamsters), check out our Instagram.
