The Information is a San Francisco-based subscription publication known for original, in-depth reporting about the technology industry.

We have a financially healthy business, plenty of capital and big ambitions to grow our business and team. We’re looking for a Growth Analyst to help unlock explosive growth.

Who are you?

You are obsessed with data and believe the stories it can tell unlock the answers to the universe. You love building Excel models and running regression analyses.

You've got a growth mindset and are continually trying to learn. Ideally, you’ve got 2-4 years experience on marketing or analytics teams and know most of the acronyms and how to calculate them: CPM, CPC, CPA, LTV, CAC, etc.

  • Always be testing. You love and have broad experience with A/B testing, experimentation, and iteration to design, analyze and interpret marketing results.

Requirements

  • B.S. in quantitative degree (CS, Engineering, Physics, Math, Statistics, Business, Economics or related field). Advanced degree a bonus.
  • 2+ years experience in web-based or mobile performance marketing
