What you will be doing:

    • Manage and motivate a team of highly skilled individuals and identify how and when to add talent to your team based on needs and opportunities 
    • Identify and manage priorities across product experiments, model improvements, deep dives, and data requests, and form the bridge between these stakeholders and the team
    • Oversee and prioritise the execution and quality of ad-hoc analytics projects, core activities, and individual responsibilities within the team
    • Improving both technical and non-technical work processes, including improving cross-team communication and work processes, particularly with Data Engineers
    • Be part of the data leadership team to form the company analytics strategy
    • Lead by example in embracing our company values and preserving our culture

What you bring to the table:

    • 7-10 years hands-on experience from working with data analytics in a data-driven company
    • 5+ years of Management experience
    • Experience working cross-functionally, using data to improve our understanding of our user base and to develop new products and features
    • The ability to transform business questions into data requirements
    • Ability to perform analytics tasks, summarise these, and report findings
    • Experience with SQL, Python or R, statistics and data modeling
    • An experimental mindset, confidence in the power of experimenting/ testing, and having experience with running/analysing multiple experiments

A note on remote
Our work environment is hybrid-remote, meaning that we support our employees to work remotely and in the office. We encourage employees to decide for themselves and with their team whether or when to go to the office. However, we recommend that you don't come to the office more than 2-3 per week - since that wouldn't be hybrid anymore.

While it is not necessarily a determining or disqualifying factor for any role, you may be required to complete a standard employment background screening.
