The Opportunity

We are looking for a fantastic Strategy analyst to undertake discrete internal projects to help us understand our customer and our business better. You need to be really strong at understanding and working with data to drive clear recommendations on how we can improve what we do and how we do things.

This is an amazing role for anyone interested in learning the fundamentals of e-commerce economics,marketing and strategy, helping us answer key questions such as  ‘What happens to the number of times a customer orders from us when they follow us on Instagram?’ and ‘When people read a set of instructions, how likely are they to go on to purchase the materials, and what factors affect this?’.

If you have an entrepreneurial mindset, enjoy analytical problem-solving and have uncommon insight into complex data that you can communicate and defend, then we can’t wait to meet you!

The role will expose you to a lot of the skill-sets and business fundamentals of a strategy consulting analyst role. You will receive first class training from a smart, kind team with backgrounds in top tier strategy consulting, technology and e-commerce among others.

What you'll be doing

  • Prepare the daily trading presentation that allows us to track performance versus goals, understand behaviour at a granular level and react quickly to trading performance.
  • Work closely with the SEO Manager to develop and support organic market research, reporting and SEO decision-making.
  • Analyse competitor performance and report insights and recommendations to the rest of the business
  • Keeping the whole company updated with our progress through presentations at all-hands meetings

Who you are

  • Possess uncommon problem-solving skills. A keen sense of what analysis should be prioritised and excellent execution
  • Able to clearly communicate ideas and conclusions (written and oral)
  • Comfortable challenging others and being challenged in the pursuit of getting the right answer
  • Independent with an entrepreneurial mindset - happy to get stuck in and get stuff done
  • Highly IT literate and proficient in Excel and Googledocs
  • Minimum 2.1 degree (or equivalent relevant experience).
  • New graduate or 1-4 years' work experience
  • Excellent Maths
  • SQL / Programming skills a nice extra

What we’re offering

  • Great staff perks like free breakfast, fresh fruit, Friday company drinks

About LoveCrafts

LoveCrafts is a leading e-commerce company in crafts. Our primary sites are loveknitting.com and Lovecrochet.com

At LoveCrafts we’re building online communities for crafters: homes for makers where they can find inspiration for their latest projects, learn new techniques, easily source all their supplies and share their creations with like-minded makers around the world.

Since launching in 2012, we’ve grown incredibly quickly. Our membership in the prestigious Future Fifty and 20th place on the FT’s list of fastest growing European companies is thanks to the hard work of our team of smart, kind makers based in London, Kyiv and in the USA.  We’ve been fuelled by investment from Europe’s leading venture capital firms; Balderton Capital (LoveFilm, The Hut) funded our Series A round, followed by Highland Europe (Photobox, WeTransfer) and most recently Scottish Equity Partners (SkyScanner, Matches Fashion).

We’re playing with the very best in web, mobile, social, commerce and media technology as we create the perfect digital business for all things craft related.  Our team is filled with ambitious, curious, and entrepreneurial makers. We hire and nurture inquisitive, creative minds looking to flourish in a supportive and collaborative environment.

We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
