Startup Europe. Grown up reporting
Sifted is the media platform reporting on the world of technology and startups in Europe, backed by the Financial Times. Two years after launching, we’ve become known for our high-quality journalism and fresh viewpoints, and we’re a must-read for many founders, investors and people working in startups across the continent.
Launched in 2019, we have already grown to over 600k monthly unique visitors and beyond 100k newsletter subscribers, but there is much more to be done to both grow our readership and expand our scope beyond media to become the leading insights platform for the European technology industry. Our team is expanding rapidly (currently at c.50 people) and we are looking for more talented people to join.
The role provides daily research support to all functional Sifted teams, with responsibilities including defining our data infrastructure and assisting with the company’s forecasts, budgets, and KPI reporting. From analysing content performance for journalists through to creating insight-driven financial reporting, the Finance and Operations Data Analyst will be fundamental to the long-term success of Sifted.
The job will be based in Shoreditch, London, with the expectation that 2 days a week will be spent in the office. The candidate will report, on an interim basis, to Sifted’s Head of Strategy, working closely with all team leads in line with various projects (from the Head of Product through to the Head of Marketing). In the longer term, the ambition is to grow Sifted’s data capabilities – especially in terms of FP&A.
As Sifted’s first ever Finance and Operations Data Analyst, you’ll deliver crucial business insights, build a data-informed company culture and take a lead on our financial reporting. In this multifaceted role, the remit will include making financial projections for Sifted’s leadership whilst creating broader data capabilities that benefit decision-making across teams.
Whilst this candidate will report to Sifted’s Head of Strategy initially, it is envisaged that they will, over time, work closely with a Finance Director or Chief Data Officer. Additionally, they will play a pivotal role across company projects (from systems implementations to understanding subscription trends) in order to achieve business-wide OKRs. Joining the team at this crucial moment in Sifted’s growth will allow the Finance and Operations Data Analyst to dictate the pace of the company’s data maturity.
The ideal candidate will have most, if not all, of the following:
