As a Marketing Analyst with FindHotel, you will help scale up our world class online marketing campaigns.  You will be responsible for optimizing our customer acquisition strategy and improving&scaling our digital marketing.  If you're a business-savvy analyst who has the technical skills to leverage large data 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 guru. I make sure you only see the Ads you want to click on."


What you will actually be doing

  • Prioritize, plan and optimize marketing campaigns using performance data

What a day in the office might look like:

You start the day analyzing recently launched campaigns for performance and pricing to see what can be improved.  Then you'll look at the output of our internal decision-making system, identifying any issues.  During the daily team standup you'll present interesting findings on marketing behaviour, suggest improvements to our pricing, and raise problems or challenges you have flagged. Before lunch you'll set aside time to research intriguing questions that you want to investigate - mobile behaviour trends in eastern Asian countries, for example.  After lunch you'll brainstorm with the data analysts and marketeers on the next markets and type of campaigns we want to launch.
