    FindHotel Published: September 17, 2017


    As a Growth Marketing 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

    • Prioritize, plan and optimize marketing channels & campaigns using performance data
    • Analyse data from across the company to find the most important growth opportunities & lead cross-functional projects to leverage them.
    • Work with our data analysts, scientists & engineers to implement automated systems that optimize our marketing channels.
    • Understand visitor behavior & marketing landscape to drive growth initiatives
    • Collaborate with the Product Squad to optimize website experience & build data driven features
    • Research external data sources and bring them into productive use
    • Forecast marketing & company performance & financials
    • Define key metrics, dashboards & data strategy for the organisation

    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)
