THE GIG
At InVenture, we are building the future of credit in emerging markets. We have helped tens of thousands of people access instant loans for growing their businesses, and will reach millions more in the next few years.

Tackling the demand for instant and easy access to financial services around the globe is no easy task, but InVenture plans to solve the problem through a smart, data-driven platform. To achieve that goal, we need more like-minded individuals passionate about wrestling a large social challenge through analytics and experimentation. The Data Analyst will contribute directly to InVenture's mission by verifying hypotheses and deep diving into business questions. These include:
  • Product Experimentation and Testing - how can we restructure loans to improve margins and to maximize the benefits to our customers?
  • Customer Segmentation - what incentives will different customer groups prefer?
  • New Revenue Opportunities - what other products can we offer to our customers to improve their livelihoods or to meet their needs?

  • Be constantly curious about data and offer evidence-based improvements to our platform
  • Ensure we capture and track new product changes to validate outcomes in performance
  • Communicate these findings in a clear and concise manner to our multi-country teams

 
REQUIREMENTS
  • Data Driven - you are an expert at creating hypotheses, using a methodological approach, quantifying the results, and obtaining actionable insights
  • Data Wizard - you are comfortable extracting and transforming data using a combination of SQL and R, Python, or an equivalent data analysis tool

 
BONUS POINTS
  • Knowledge of financial inclusion or leveraging mobile technology for social impact
  • Experience or familiarity with emerging markets such as Eastern Africa and Southeast Asia

 
WHY IT'S AWESOME TO WORK HERE!
  • A welcome, open, and collaborative environment close to the beach
  • Game nights, Lunch & Learn presentations, and company-sponsored events (ex. paddleboard yoga)
  • Comprehensive medical, dental, and vision insurance
  • Competitive salary and equity
