Salary: £22.5k + benefits -- Start Date: ASAP or in the summer
Have you ever wondered how some of the most ambitious and successful companies in the UK (think Deliveroo & Monzo) grow so rapidly? We’re looking for bright and inquisitive people to help us shine a light on these companies.
This entry level role is perfect for anyone who loves learning new things and often finds themselves falling into online rabbit holes (fans of “The Wikipedia Game”, we’re looking for you). Come and join our close-knit team (check out ourGlassdoor to see just how great our culture is) and help us with our deep dive into online research!
If this sounds right up your street then read on...
👋 About us
We’re a market leading tech company that provides data on the fastest growing companies in the UK. We’re at a pretty exciting stage right now—we’ve built a profitable, high-growth business, with 120+ employees and an enviable client list. But we’re not done yet. We’re on a mission to become a global data company that helps every organisation discover and work better with ambitious, high-growth companies.
🥖 The Role
Our Data team is vital in ensuring our data is of excellent quality. Our aim is to track companies that we don’t track (but should), add even more data points on these companies & a whole range of other important projects. To keep up with all of this growth, we need more lovely faces to join our Data team.
Day to day, your responsibilities will be to:
🔎 Fact find & research: go on a mission to find what services these companies provide, the products they sell, and who their clients are using company websites, press releases and the public record
🖋️ Writing: turn this research into succinct & snappy company descriptions that help our clients understand them and help them grow into the next big thing.
📂 Classify: put these companies into the right “box” by working out which of our 500 proprietary sectors they operate in (including AI, Augmented reality, Fintech, 3D printing & much more!)
💭 Problem solve: apply an inquisitive eye & our in-house methodology to figure out, for example: what stage do you think a company is at? Do you fully trust the accuracy of its filings or do you need to correct a probable mistake? Based on the limited information you have, does a deal look more like an investment or a buyout?
Don’t worry! We don’t expect you to be an expert on day one. You’ll receive about two months of thorough training, helping you to understand, create, and refine company data.
While the role doesn’t involve dataset manipulation, cleaning, or analysis, you’ll get to learn loads about the most innovative start-ups, top performing established companies and the ecosystem that supports such an integral part of the UK’s economy. The data you create will be used by government bodies, investors and anyone interested in helping the most ambitious companies grow, recruit and innovate.
This is an entry-level position that will suit someone with a degree. Previous experience is a bonus, but not required.
At the very least, you will need to have/be:
- A great communicator: You’ll have excellent written communication, including correct use of spelling and grammar
- Autonomous: You’re happy to work independently and like figuring stuff out for yourself
- Problem-solver & detail oriented: You are a natural problem-solver, meticulous and with a keen eye for detail
- Team player: You enjoy working with people & have a good sense of humour
🕊 Our offer
We're offering a competitive starting salary of £22.5k and an in-depth training programme, ongoing for 2 months.
We invest a lot in keeping our people happy and healthy! So as well as your salary you'll also get:
🍰 A stake in the company: Substantial options scheme, so you can share in the growth that you help create
🎓 Professional development: Ongoing training and development, and free books & training courses
💻 The latest tech: We’ll provide you with all the tech you need to be productive (including a Mac!), whether you’re in the office or working from home
🌲 Health and wellness: Free counselling/therapy, wellbeing baskets, and healthy snacks
🎉 Events: Drinks every Friday, interesting talks from industry experts, company-wide parties and away days, plus regular team socials
🚄 Subsidised travel: Rail season ticket loan, free railcards, and a cycle to work scheme
Hybrid working: Ability to work from home up to 70% of the time (although you're welcome to work in the office as much as you'd like!)
Ticking all the boxes?
