Foursquare helps you and your friends make the most of where you are. We're a small but highly ambitious company with millions of users worldwide relying on foursquare to keep up with friends, discover what's nearby, save money and unlock deals. We’re also helping over a million registered merchants ranging from local businesses to global brands connect with their customers.
To thrive as a member of team Foursquare, you must embrace our exciting work-hard, play-hard environment. We're not afraid to move fast and break things as we release, launch, iterate, update and announce -- sometimes all in the same day. We're a closely-knit team and, especially at the end of a long day over beers, we feel like we're inventing the future together.
About our Product Analyst Position:
Do you want to help build a service that tens of millions of people use to discover great places to go and the best things to do once they get there? Does the idea of working with a unique data set of over 4.5 billion check-ins, 50 million places, and 35 million tips excite you? Can you dig into our usage data -- from writing Hive queries to analyzing results in Excel/R/Python to building visualizations in Tableau -- to help the product team develop insights into how to make our growth engine hum faster?
If so, this is a role for you.
You don’t need to have a CS background, though you’ve hopefully taken at least a few courses. You don’t need to be familiar with SQL/Hive, but you should want to learn quickly and get your hands dirty. You don’t need to have tech industry experience, but if you’re a consultant or in finance then you should be a self-starter genuinely excited about building new consumer tech products with a desire to pick up a ton of new skills.
This position is based in our New York City headquarters in SoHo. We offer a competitive compensation package including equity options.
