Data Analyst

Job description

Welcome to Lepaya

Our mission is to enable professionals across the globe to be more effective in their work and enjoy more happiness in life. Did you know that 85% of your effectiveness at work is determined by soft skills? To deliver on our mission, we deliver high impact soft skill training. Our training platform provides professionals with the more modern tools to develop themselves: online where possible, offline or face-to-face where that has more impact.

We launched early 2018 and, the success of our approach is demonstrated by our rapidly expanding client-base - ranging from the most innovative and fast-growing scale-ups such as Bynder and Picnic, to global corporates such as ING, and L’Oreal.

We are now fully committed to rapid growth and international expansion, supported by a recent €5 mln Series A investment. This makes it the perfect time to step in. The new Data Analyst has the opportunity to work in a dynamic and entrepreneurial environment, where he/she plays a central role in achieving ambitious growth.

A word on diversity: at Lepaya, all we’re askin’ is a little respect! To us, it doesn’t matter where you were born, what you believe in, how old you are, what you look like, or who you love. We believe that different perspectives and backgrounds will actually lift Lepaya to new heights and increase our power of thinking. Our passion is to build a strong culture with respect for each other’s unique experiences, backgrounds, perspectives and skills. Join us, as there is a place for you here!

Why do we need you?

What drives people to learn? What motivates them to invest time? What type of content engages them and potentially helps them induce behavior change? Can we predict this in advance? We need you to answer these questions and more to create the best user experience for our learners. Thus, you will have a big impact on decisions on our future learning experience.

Additionally, we do not have a data science or business intelligence team yet, which will give you the opportunity to build this from scratch. So initially, your work will likely be more in the business analytics domain - setting up dashboard, structuring data, and running analyses to understand and steer our business better - closely together with our product, commercial and learning team. Over time, we aim to morph this into a more full-blown data science function.

Specifically, what we would expect you to deliver over the next 6-12 months?

  • Real-time reporting to the Commercial, Learning & Product team on key commercial, engagement & user-behaviour KPIs;
  • A structured approach to find new opportunities or to design and set up experiments to validate the impact of our new features;


In an ideal world, who would you be?

  • You're experienced with BI and data visualization tooling, and implementing these in an organization;
  • You're experienced in translating data into (actionable) insights;
  • You're experienced in querying data from databases using SQL, Python, R or a similar language;
  • You have a deep understanding of our business, a keen eye for where we aim to go and how data/insights can support that;
  • You approach complex problems in a structured way;
  • You can communicate your findings effectively to non-technical staff;
  • You're comfortable working with large datasets and data wrangling;
  • You're excited about working in the field of learning;

We value capabilities over formal experience, yet what would we love to see on your resume?

  • 2+ years of experience in an analytics environment;
  • A science degree from a top university or college;

And of course, next to the challenge we offer, why is it amazing to work for Lepaya?

  • You will join an inspiring and dynamic environment;
  • You will participate in Lepaya’s own training curriculum;
  • We offer accelerated personal growth and career opportunities;
  • We offer an attractive compensation package;
  • And the best: participation in the Lepaya Work-To-Live schedule consisting of unlimited holidays & a free Friday every second week.

Are you looking for a challenge with a lot of responsibility and learning opportunities? Be part of a fun international team? Work on an innovative solution for learning & development?
