As a London-based startup, we have gone from strength to strength in building Developer Economics as the de facto research series on the apps economy, with our research and business model workshops sought by brand-name clients from AT&T to Sony.

We’re now looking for a Data Analyst to join VisionMobile, as part of our research team, based in Athens.

Who we’re looking for
As a Data Analyst, you will have 2-4 years working experience in number crunching and online research. You will be fearless in data crunching and keen to show-off your pivots and scorecards with eye-candy that begs to differ from boring Excel charts.

You will have undertaken many research projects where your scouting skills and attention to detail would impress.

If you’re that person, we ‘d love to talk.

What you’ll be responsible for:
As a Data Analyst you’ll be reporting to our Data and Operations Manager, with responsibility for:

- Researching companies, market sectors and interviewing companies to produce blogs or short reports as part of our Developer Economics research.
- Interact with clients and partners to see research projects to completion

What skills we are looking for:
- Fearless in data and number crunching in Excel and ideally also in statistical or data visualisation software (such as SPSS, PASW modeller, Tableau and MarketSight). No problem is too hard to solve.
- Background in statistics or applied economics
- Experienced in researching information online and distilling information noise into a short, concise report
- Passion for software, apps or smartphones and keen to become a part of that industry
- Ideally having software development experience as a hobby or past work.
- Comfortable working as part of a distributed team across three countries.
- Keen to work in an entrepreneurial environment and push the company to grow.
- Having studied or worked in a foreign country
- Fluent in English
