From adventure travel and backpacking to honeymoons and family vacations, we deeply care so that every traveler can make the best-informed accommodation choice at the absolute best conditions for every trip.

We are growing fast and looking for Marketing Analyst to join us in becoming a global travel category leader pushing our marketing efforts to the next level. We are currently present in every single country in the world in over 20 different languages, but there's still a lot to be done to increase our coverage and maximize our performance. As a Marketing Analyst you will be optimizing & scaling our marketing channels as well as discovering new ones while also helping shape the company's user acquisition & growth strategy by supporting other teams with analytical expertise. This would be the perfect challenge for you if you have experience in online marketing and the skills to leverage large data sets to make data-driven decisions. Join us and transform your career in a fast-growing, profitable & data-driven start-up in the exciting world of online travel.

What you will actually be doing

  • Scale, plan and optimize marketing channels using performance data
  • Define key metrics, dashboards & data strategy for monitoring and optimization

What a day in the office might look like:

You start the day making a health check of the performance of your marketing channels and analyzing recently launched campaigns to see what can be improved. Then you'll look at the output of our internal decision-making system, identifying any issues. During the daily team standup, you'll present interesting findings on marketing behavior, suggest improvements to our pricing, and raise problems or challenges you have flagged. Before lunch, you'll set aside time to research intriguing questions that you want to investigate - mobile behavior trends in Eastern Asia, for example. After lunch, you'll launch a couple of pricing experiments and brainstorm with marketers about a new type of campaign we want to try.

The team:

You'll be working within our user acquisition squad, which is made up of analysts & marketers as well as being supported by scientists & engineers.
