Data Scientist/Analyst

MyBuilder.com helps homeowners find reliable tradespeople through the power of online reviews. We’re a market leader in the UK and are part of IAC, a well known New York based internet group (Tripadvisor, Vimeo, Match.com, Tinder, HomeAdvisor, etc.)

Our headquarters in Clerkenwell reflect our unique culture: we have an amazing office bar, guitars, a drum kit, a bike mechanic workstation, extensive library and a rotating food team who make lunch for everyone. It’s a fun place to be and that’s mainly because everyone in the team believes in the mission and is seriously good at what they do.

The role

We want to work with people who are curious, honest, courageous and passionate - if that sounds like you and you love gaining insight from data, then you may have found a new home.

MyBuilder is a local services marketplace. Marketplaces are complex businesses and they generate lots of data. We have over 35 different trade categories and have tradesmen across the UK. So in effect, there are many thousands of micro markets that need to be optimised on a regular basis for supply, demand and in respect to pricing. To achieve this we need to be able to understand our data better.

This will be MyBuilder’s first dedicated data role. Although we are also looking to hire a Marketplace analyst into our Marketing team. This is a great opportunity to help shape our data practices and toolsets. There’s definitely plenty of work to be done and we feel that filling this role represents one of our biggest opportunities for business growth.

This is a role that will report into our CTO, so you will be part of our outstanding tech team. However, you will also spend a lot of time with the CEO and with the rest of the team, so there is a lot of variety in this role.
