Internship vacancy: Data analyst

Springest wants to help people reach their full potential through learning. As a data analyst, you will be gathering insights by combining information from the biggest database of learning products and the many tools Springest uses.

Are you data- and tech-savvy? Do you love diving into data and discovering hidden insights? Was it your childhood dream to be a pirate, looking for treasure? What we lack in rum and eyepatches we make up with spades of data. There are many ways that you can show, prove and develop your skills at Springest, namely:

  • Supporting Learning providers to improve their data quality on Springest
  • Supporting users by suggesting the best learning products based on their interests
  • Supporting your colleagues to get the right data and metrics to validate/complete their projects
  • Building / improving internal tools to support other roles.

Our application is running on Ruby on Rails and we make use of Postgres, Redis, and Memcached. For our search machine and optimizations we use Elasticsearch. Next to that we use different external tools that help us in our work like Asana, HelpScout, Intercom, and JotForm. Dizzy yet? Combined with the internal tools that we develop ourselves, we employ a data-driven approach to gain more insights and focus for our team.
