As a Growth Analyst with FindHotel, you will be responsible for guiding our customer acquisition strategy and optimizing & scaling our marketing channels as well as helping shape company strategy by supporting other teams & leadership with analytical expertise. If you're a business-savvy analyst who has the technical skills to leverage large data sets and make data-driven decisions this might be the role for you!
What you'll tell your friends about your job
"I'm a data whisperer & smell growth opportunities from miles away"
What you will actually be doing
What a day in the office might look like:
You start the day analyzing a new data point: such as cancellation rate for certain type of hotels. You come to the conclusion that this is commercially important for both marketing & product experience so you set up meetings with the data science and product teams to decide if & what kind of data projects should start based on it. During the daily team stand-up you'll present interesting findings on marketing behavior, suggest improvements to our pricing, and raise problems or challenges you have flagged. Then you'll follow up on the performance of a new marketing channel we just launched, and make decisions on its success & how much more resources we should invest in it. Before lunch you'll set aside time to research intriguing questions that you want to investigate - mobile behavior trends in eastern Asian countries, for example. After lunch(and some competitive table tennis) you'll continue building a dashboard in Looker that forecasts company performance.
The team: You'll be working within our Growth squad, which is made up of 4 analysts & 6 marketers as well as being supported by scientists, engineers & product owners.
Tools & technology: Our data is hosted on a Redshift SQL database and we use Looker as our BI platform. (optionally if you are inclined towards scripting or modeling, we mainly use Python & sometimes R)
