Who are Candide? (a brief history)

Candide began in 2017 and has taken on many guises over the years. Throughout each evolution we’ve had a singular mission to allow gardeners and the gardening sector as a whole to take advantage of modern technology and help their businesses prosper.
From our award winning proprietary Plant ID technology, our custom-built Public Gardens admissions system, our unique won’t-find-it-anywhere-else Plant Marketplace to our vibrant Social Network for plant lovers around the world; there is no stone we have left unturned.
The next chapter for Candide is just as exciting… we’re doing it all again, but with a twist. This time around, instead of providing general services to the sector we are focussing on the use cases of our most innovative Garden clients alone. Candide’s renewed impetus is to empower these trail blazers to be all they can be and tap the true potential of the technology we’ve built. These gardens include Babylonstoren in South Africa, The Newt In Somerset in the UK, Vignamaggio in Italy and a few more yet to be revealed (but equally dazzling)! Our clients aren’t your average park walkabout, they are sophisticated, connected, pristine examples of closed-loop farm-to-plate businesses with vast complexity. Our technology runs their membership schemes, manages their restaurants, integrates with their hotel booking and touches just about every part of a visitor’s experience - we even provide their wifi. But Candide’s vision for our clients doesn’t stop there, next up we are revamping their ecommerce engine and building companion native mobile apps to help take their operations to the next level.

The role

You will be joining an established data team to provide analysis and insight across our growing hospitality and e-commerce business. The team has built a solid foundation of core reports and are now planning to expand into different parts of the business as well as delivering new, more sophisticated types of analysis.

To do this, you will partner with a wide range of teams across our globally distributed organisation, build deep expertise in their areas of business and help them realise the value of the data they collect.
In pursuit of the team's longer term objectives, you will also have the opportunity to influence the organisation's data strategy and work on key strategic projects. An important current initiative is the creation of a new cloud data warehouse, using Google BigQuery.
