  • You are capable of tackling very loosely defined problems and lead insights work

  • You are a communicative person that values building positive relationships with colleagues and stakeholders and have the ability to explain complex topics in simple terms

  • You have the competence to perform advanced analytics:

    • Coding skills (such as Python, Java, or Scala)

    • Analytics tools experience (such as Pandas, R, SPSS, SQL, or Hadoop)

    • Statistical competence (such as regression modelling, a/b testing, significance testing etc)


We are proud to foster a workplace free from discrimination.
