We are looking for Solutions Analysts to fuel the next generation of data driven companies!

As a Solutions Analyst at Unacast, you will work at the center of a cross-functional team consisting of account executives, data scientists, product managers, sales representatives, and other engineers. Your main role will be to work in tandem with Sales and Client Success to put the right location insights in the hands of prospects and clients in a diverse set of industries.

Depending on interests and needs, you will also provide market and product feedback to the technical teams in Oslo, work closely with Product to refine our datasets (and create new ones), help Marketing tell stories with location data, and implement the systems used for technical integrations with our partners.

Our American headquarters is New York - and you’ll have the opportunity to work out of our offices in Oslo for periods of time - but you are free to work from anywhere you want as long as you get things done.

To us, innovation is the ability to tackle the challenges we don't currently know we have before someone else does it. For that reason, we believe that we need a team of diverse backgrounds and experiences. If you feel that your knowledge and experience can help us get to the next level, we'd love to speak to you
