Who You Might Be:

  • Familiarity with statistical analysis and programming languages preferred (e.g., R / Python)
  • Ability to tackle ambiguous and undefined problems. Experience with monetizing consumer products or paid digital goods preferred
  • Demonstrated ability to ideate data research, distill insights into strong product recommendations and lead A/B tests to test the data-led hypotheses
