We want to become the #1 in the world at creating and marketing mobile apps. As a company of rational thinkers with big visions, we want our future greatness to rest on robust foundations of truth. This applies to the smallest feature decision for one of our apps all the way up to the most dramatic strategic decisions. To make this happen, we’re looking for a brilliant, business-driven number-cruncher, someone completely obsessed with data and finding (often counterintuitive) answers to difficult and very important questions.
A few examples of your responsibilities:
Discuss the most pressing product and/or business questions that big data can help answer, and then figure out how to find those answers.
Query and analyse massive sets of usage data to identify product-improvement opportunities and actionable insights to profoundly impact our product strategy and roadmap.
Create brief, high-quality reports to explain your findings and discuss their implications with the relevant people.
Screen the app stores and study competitors’ apps in search of insights and ideas we could leverage.
Help direct the development of our technologies devoted to the acquisition, storage, and manipulation of big data, with the goal of ensuring Bending Spoons constantly breaks new ground in this field.
What We Offer
Huge impact. Your analysis will help steer Bending Spoons and so end up impacting tens of millions of users, and even the mobile-app industry at large, in the next few years.
Top-notch team. You’ll be surrounded by experts, leaders, and innovators. Your team will be made up of the brightest and nicest guys you’ve ever worked with. You’ll experience what it feels like to be a visionary in a visionary organization.
Lots. Of. Data. With tens of millions of users, hundreds of thousands of new users every day, and a large and diverse, ever-growing portfolio of apps, Bending Spoons is the perfect playground for a data junkie (we know you are; we are too).
International reach. Our users are all over the world. Our company language is English. We’re a global reality and your job will have global exposure.
Unique career opportunity. By joining a fast-growing company that sets out to become one of the world’s greatest within the vast, booming mobile market, you get a special chance to turbo charge your learning and career.
What We Look For
Rock-solid analytical reasoning. You crunch numbers and perform calculations with confidence and accuracy. You read graphs at a glance and see patterns in them. You’re a very quick learner that can investigate and effectively pick up new concepts on your own, especially when it comes to numbers and data.
You’re very curious and inquisitive. You feel the urge to understand why things are the way they are, and are suspicious of unproven beliefs and assumptions. Finding the truth and explaining it is your crusade.
Pragmatism. Far from being too academic or obsessive in your perfectionism, you understand that, when getting things done in a competitive world, speed is often as important as quality.
You preferably have a number-heavy degree. You studied Economics, Finance, Mathematics, Physics, or Engineering, ideally at M.Sc. level. This is not required, but a strong plus.
Moderate IT and spreadsheet skills. You’re savvy enough to smoothly use Google Docs, Google Sheets, and/or Microsoft Excel. Ideally you can run SQL queries. But don’t worry, we’ll teach you all you don’t know.
Obsession with numbers. You absolutely love to break down and analyze big datasets looking for insights, and then look at the same numbers all over again from another angle to find another way of reading them. You do it so much that you end up knowing your numbers by heart!
Interest in the topic. You’re very likely to love the job if you find the mobile apps market and its possibilities exciting, and if the idea of understanding user psychology through numbers fascinates you.
Drive. You’re energetic, hard-working, and persevere through adversity until the job is done, and done well.
Good communication skills. You can pose questions with clarity, explain your reasoning concisely, pick the right graph to express a message, and create brief, insightful reports with a touch of artistry.
Proficiency in English. You read, write, and speak proficiently in English.
