Project - Business analytics tool
ITP’s growth trajectory has meant that we are always looking to improve our systems to increase efficiency and rapid access to business-critical information. We also need to leverage the power of automation to allow us to improve quality and deliver more for our clients.

Our financial reporting tool was built in-house, and allows us to track progress on projects and forecast our pipeline of future work. It has proven invaluable for our project managers, team leaders, and upper management. It’s one of the biggest improvements we’ve made to our systems and is popular among all who use it. We’d like to continue to improve it, add more features, and add some analytics to really allow us to give us the information we need to make good business decisions.

As part of this job, your role may consider how you can:

  • expand our Python codebase that underpins the database

  • develop and refine the database frontend, adding features and fixing bugs

  • improve UI to make information more easily accessible and engaging

  • integrate our other business tools with the database through APIs

  • look for improvements that could be made beyond what users have requested

  • improve performance through efficient coding and optimising cloud infrastructure setup

  • be proactive about identifying and mitigating cybersecurity threats
