The Wikimedia Foundation is looking for a Data Analyst to join our team, reporting to the Head of Product Analytics. The Product Analytics team is a collaborative team with organization-wide impact. We provide quantitatively based user insights to improve decision-making within the Foundation and the Wikimedia Movement. Our focus is on supporting product decisions that enable our communities to achieve Wikimedia’s vision: a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge.
We’re looking for a Data Analyst who will advance our team’s mission of informing decisions by providing impactful, accessible, and ethical data and insights. In this role, you will help our iOS and Android mobile apps teams improve Wikipedia editor and reader experiences by analyzing user behavior and identifying impacts from product tests. You’ll work with product teams to ensure that tagging and metrics are appropriately defined and implemented, and promote best practices for measuring user behavior across our websites and mobile apps.
The insights you generate will impact one of the most relied-upon digital platforms in the world, and your work will support our strategic direction toward service and equity. Our commitment to user privacy sets Wikimedia sites apart from almost all major websites, and inspires creative approaches to our data work.
In this role, you will:
Identify key metrics for measuring progress against product and organizational goals.
Collaborate with product, business, and technology teams to ensure that tagging and metrics are appropriately implemented.
Work with data and metrics in App Store Connect, Play Store Console, and App Annie that supplement our internal analytics solutions.
Build data visualizations, reports, and dashboards, and guide stakeholders in how to interpret the data.
Design, execute, and evaluate experiments and quantitative research to inform product decisions.
Analyze Wikipedia usage volume, user behavior, and performance data to identify opportunities and areas for improvement.
Work with large-scale data, using tools such as Hadoop, Hive/Presto, Druid, Superset, Turnilo, Spark, and Jupyter.
Communicate data insights clearly and responsively to a range of departmental, organisational, volunteer, and public stakeholders.
Experience with tracking and analytics on consumer, mass media, or social network mobile apps and websites. (Our tracking system is homegrown, but prior experience with tools like Google Analytics, Mixpanel, Adobe Analytics, etc. is helpful.)
Comfortable using analytics tools and scripting languages to create reports that blend data from multiple sources (our team frequently uses Python or R, Hadoop, Hive/Presto, Spark, and Druid).
Ability to communicate findings and recommendations clearly to colleagues with diverse backgrounds and areas of expertise.
Strong working knowledge of SQL.
Bachelor’s degree in a related field or the equivalent in relevant work experience.
Flexible and open to change and new information.
Comfortable working in a highly collaborative, consensus-oriented environment.
Fluency in a language other than English (our apps teams are interested in expanding our reach in Asia, Africa, and Latin America).
Experience with open source technologies and communities.
Experience contributing to Wikimedia projects.
