We think we have some idea of why you do what you do: It’s about making people’s lives easier, isn’t it? About taking tasks that used to require lots of time and effort and allowing people to execute them quickly and simply, right on their devices? Well, if we’re right about that, then this is an opportunity you’ll love: One of the world’s biggest commercial real estate firms is hiring a team to create a suite of mobile products that will allow building managers and occupants to do all kinds of cool things, like schedule conference rooms, reserve hotels, find their way around, and tons of other stuff. In order to make it happen, the team will need an analyst to ensure that all is being done wisely and in step with closely-studied data. That’s where you come in.
As the team analyst, you’ll have your own roadmap, your own backlog, and a pod of other pros working with you. You’ll be a creator, consumer and, of course, interpreter of data relevant to the optimization of your products. That means establishing metrics and means of data collection as well as creating the dashboards and reports that will keep the development teams abreast of progress, usage and performance.
It’ll require an awful lot of communication and collaboration as well as a deep understanding of user journeys, team goals and technical specifications. You’ll constantly be inserting yourself and your group into conversations and meetings and processes in order to make absolutely sure that the teams have what they need to understand their own products and their own impacts on users.
Hired Gun Proﬁle
The product end of things is where you’ve quite deliberately chosen to spend your time and effort. For at least half a decade, it’s been your home, and over that period you’ve truly internalized an almost sixth sense for the role of data in building world-class products. You think to measure things that others might rather intuit, you have a preference for insights over pure information, and you possess an incredible knack for building simple tools to visualize the things that data is telling you about the world. You’ve often played the role of data evangelist, infecting colleagues with your enthusiasm for an analytical approach to problem-solving.
You also have an outstanding set of interpersonal skills, the kind that make for a great manager. You’re very good at inspiring a team to give its best, and you’re a natural when it comes to presenting and sharing your findings.
Get ready to talk about experiences in which you’ve used qualitative and quantitative data to test a hypothesis, iterate against an experience, and revisit the original business goal. ‘Cause that’s exactly the kind of stuff you’ll be doing in this gig.
This is a vital position in a well-funded effort within an absolute behemoth of a company, doing what you do best and truly changing the world of end-users. Pretty damn great, we’d say.
