Lead Growth Analyst

3+ months agoAmsterdam, Netherlands

About the team

At the Growth Analytics team it is our responsibility to uncover what our users are aiming to accomplish within Miro. And we are doing this at scale! As the name (Growth Analytics) suggests, we are working a lot with understanding user behaviour by analysing their actions. But this is not everything we do though! We create hypotheses, build growth models, own metrics and experiment together with our fellow Growth PMs and Growth Marketing people. Each role at Miro is based at one of our physical hubs and we look for talent that want to be part of these local, collaborative communities. Mironeers work in a hybrid model.

About the role

Growth data analytics is focused on the quantitative understanding of users and customers behavior across different stages of their lifecycle (product-led acquisition, activation, engagement, decision to pay, retention and expansion). We consider Data Analysts as bi-direction drivers. On the one hand, they transform business goals to data requests and reports/dashboards, on the other - proactively explore data to bring insights and drive right decisions.
