Data Analyst

Short Description

Hike Messenger is seeking a Data Analyst who can enable product reviews, deep dives, and analyses through the effective use of data and communicate and report insights and recommendations to shape product strategy.

Job Description

6 Principles
We're thinking about why we do things and here are 6 principles guiding our thinking:
  • Advancements in Tech & AI: Allowing more bits to be pushed to users in real-time and thus allowing for richer, more personalized experiences.
  • Bits Cheaper than Atoms: Today, bringing rich, luxurious experiences to the masses is faster, more efficient and cheaper online than it is offline.
  • Self Worth Moving Online: 40% of people's waking life is now spent on their smartphones. The next generation is far more comfortable online than offline.
  • Vertical Communities: We don't live our lives in one massive community. We're specific in the activities we engage in (art, gaming, fitness, etc).
  • New Business Models: Putting the customer at the center. These won't be ad-driven in the traditional sense. Think micro-transactions, subscriptions and more.
  • Consumers as Owners: It's a bit strange that consumers aren't part of the value chain. Turning customers into owners is a fascinating thought.
