At Flipboard, we log more than 1 billion user actions a day.  If the idea of analyzing and extracting insights from that data excites you, we want to talk to you! 

As a Data Insights Analyst you will tackle complex questions, work with a constantly evolving product and, yes, encounter a ton of data. You will primarily work with our product team to discover insights about our users that will power our business and product development, and with the marketing team to analyze user acquisition and retention campaigns aimed at maximizing growth. You will also get to work closely with our publisher and ads teams to solve data mysteries and propose actionable insights that push our business forward.

We are looking for a candidate who is

  • A Self-starter – You are intrinsically motivated by the thirst to understand the reality illustrated by the data.
  • A Mystery solver – You don’t take data at face value. You look at the meaning behind data and question assumptions
  • Resourceful – You employ creative problem-solving to reach answers even when the path forward is not clear
  • Results Oriented – You keep your eye focused on the outcome, not just the process. 

The successful candidate should have qualifications including

  • Degree in Economics, Finance, Statistics, Mathematics or Engineering
  • 2+ years of work experience in complex analysis
  • Proficiency in SQL
  • Experience with R or Python
  • Strong analytical skills, problem solver, and attention to detail
  • Strong communication skills
  • Ability to convert abstract business questions to data problems
  • Ability to communicate data concepts to nontechnical and technical audiences
  • Excel and PowerPoint/Keynote/Slides
