The Product Analyst Role:

As a Product Analyst on AlphaSights’ Technology & Strategy team, you will make an impact from Day 1 on AlphaSights’ growth trajectory through delivering insights that maximize our technology investment. You will pair with a Group Product Manager and become a critical member of their team through reporting on product usage and surfacing insights to drive product prioritization and problem definition. 

We don’t care that you’re “only a graduate analyst”. We believe that giving smart people the autonomy and responsibility to solve complex problems leads to the best results, regardless of tenure. In return, we expect you to endlessly pursue excellence and find new ways to bring value to your product area. This is an excellent opportunity for a proactive, ambitious individual that loves problem solving and seeing direct impact from their work. You’ll be motivated every day by your highly driven team members that continuously push you to be better and make coming into work something you genuinely look forward to.

You will be based in London, but will work with employees from across the organization (both regionally and functionally). You will report directly to the Product Analytics manager. However, your day-to-day stakeholders will be the product managers within the product area you own.

 

Responsibilities:

  • Investigate our user experience through querying our internal database and using external product analytics tools to develop and communicate structured insights that inform our future roadmap and adoption strategy
  • Assist in your product manager’s product discovery to scope user problems and identify commercial opportunity through analytics and interviewing users which will then directly inform the solution we build
  • Build dashboards and presentations to report on user adoption and impact measurement to technology leadership
  • Define quarterly impact goals in our planning process with your product managers
  • Partner with software engineering to design the database on newly developed products to ensure we’re tracking important user actions that you’ll want to measure upon release

 

What We Look For:

  • This is an entry-level role and so no prior work experience is necessary. However, relevant internships and evidence of interest / experience working with data or in a product analyst role is desirable.
  • 2:1 or above achieved in a Bachelor’s degree in a quantitative/related field, e.g., Business, Economics, Engineering, Mathematics, Statistics, Computer Science.
  • Analytical and quantitative skills, strong attention to detail, and an ability to use data and metrics to back up assumptions, develop business cases, and complete root cause analyses
  • Excellent written, verbal, presentation and interpersonal skills, including an ability to communicate complex concepts clearly and concisely with technical and non-technical teams across multiple business segments
  • Ability to work effectively as an individual and as part of a team, meet tight deadlines and prioritise workloads in a fast-paced environment
  • Someone that deeply cares about their work and not someone who feels satisfied with just getting a task done
  • An investigative mindset that can operate effectively in ambiguous situations
  • An endless hunger to learn skills and concepts that build your expertise and the expertise of those around you

 

Technical skills:

  • Proficiency in Excel, PowerPoint and Word
  • Proficiency in SQL is a strong plus
  • Experience with multiple reporting mediums (e.g., Periscope, Tableau, etc.) is a plus
  • Familiarity with coding (Python, R, or VBA / Apps Script) is a plus
  • Must pass a quantitative based test for application to be progressed

 

What You Can Expect

  • A fast-paced environment with measurable deliverables and a focus on results
  • A team-oriented, strongly supportive culture emphasizing transparency, continuous feedback, professional development, and celebrating wins
  • A constantly changing day-to-day as each new product you work on brings new challenges requiring you to constantly think “outside the box”
  • Exposure to the entire product development lifecycle and an understanding of typical product concepts (user personas, user growth metrics, prioritization frameworks, etc)
  • Development of strong technical skills (SQL, Excel, Powerpoint) and knowledge over external platforms (analytics softwares, session replay, user feedback collection)
  • Comprehensive medical benefits (health, vision, and dental) 
  • Subsidized lunch program, corporate gym discounts, monthly team events, free breakfast & snacks
  • Option to work from home every Thursday and Friday
