You will work with large amounts of data, from a range of different sources such as Youtube, Facebook, TikTok, etc, finding patterns and insights to help us identify business opportunities and inform our strategy.
You lead and coordinate research initiatives to help build a deep understanding of our core metrics, users, and business areas. You facilitate knowledge sharing both within the team and across the analytics community and make sure our insights are democratized and accessible to relevant decision-makers.
