Data Analyst

New York, NY

WaitWhat is seeking a Data Analyst (digital media) to work collaboratively across the organization towards building a more data-informed culture.

Data is a developing channel at WaitWhat. You’ll have the opportunity to make your mark — working collaboratively across the organization with executive leadership, marketing, product, content, technology and design to build and deliver intelligence that fuels our growth.

You’ll aggregate and analyze content data from a growing number of sources, and distill complex analyses into clear, actionable solutions for teams throughout the company.

This role will work alongside the Head of Audience Development & Growth as a key member of the team. We’ll work creatively & collaboratively together. We all bring ideas to the table and we build on them to bring them to life.

We want to deepen your skills and stretch your talents in new ways; give you ownership and responsibility for projects; inspire and delight your ability to impact the world through the media we create; and welcome you into a very special humble, high-collaborative startup environment.

The areas where you’ll leave your mark:

  • Aggregate and analyze data from various sources for all of WaitWhat’s media properties to assess the effectiveness of existing marketing, advertising and communications programs. Channels include (but are not limited to) podcasting, web, email, social media, video and subscription apps.
  • Prepare and present data in a way that is visual, uncomplicated and accessible to everyone to understand.
  • Work collaboratively across the organization to identify and develop solutions for the tracking of KPIs across departments.
  • Create and evaluate methods for gathering data, including surveys, interviews, questionnaires and opinion polls.
  • Be a key stakeholder in the scoping & implementation of new MarTech systems.

  • You’ve got 3-5 years of experience in a data analytics role at a digital media company.
  • You understand how content behaves all across the digital landscape. In particular, podcasting, web, subscriptions, video and apps.
  • You have an insatiable curiosity about how and why things work and why sometimes they don’t.
  • You are an impeccable executor with a knack for getting things done on schedule, but always with excellence because you sweat the details.
  • You have the mind and the ambition to meet high-reaching growth goals for our media properties, both in their first format and their extensions.
