About the Role

As an Associate on the Expansion Strategy and Analytics team, you will help build the analytical foundation for Kraken’s expansion efforts. The tools you use will allow the team to produce meaningful insights as the company researches new opportunities and refines its key strategic priorities. Your day to day will entail using your data collection and analysis skills to deliver findings that are strategically meaningful and actionable, and that will ultimately help the Expansion Team assess major trends across emerging markets of interest.

We are looking for an individual with experience that includes a combination of equity research or investment banking, statistical analysis, in-depth macroeconomic research – with hands-on data science experience including accessing, ingesting, cleaning, and filtering third-party API based data sets. Using your skills, you will assess major trends across new markets, product initiatives, customer and usage metrics, KPIs, and financials, and ultimately surface these insights to the team to help inform Kraken’s expansion strategy. You should have a keen interest in the business ramifications of data-driven insights, both from a competitive landscape perspective and from an internal operational capabilities view. This team member will report to the Head of Expansion Strategy and Analytics. 

To be successful, you will need to be highly detail oriented, and comfortable combining external, third-party data with our own proprietary data to analyze emerging trends. You are resourceful, and capable of solving problems in an unstructured way by implementing creative solutions. Lastly, you are comfortable surfacing the business implications of the trends you discover to the rest of your team: you are highly communicative, and possess strong collaboration skills. 

Responsibilities

  • Overall Expansion Strategy: Work closely with the Head of Expansion Strategy and Analytics, and Principal of Expansion Strategy, to map out a clear path of strategic objectives to meet company-wide goals.
  • Data Collection and Analysis: You will identify new sources of data, conduct analytics, and work with the team to build scalable tools for our research process. You’re not afraid to spend an extra hour analyzing the data at hand in a new and thoughtful way.
  • Metrics and Tracking: You will help the team evaluate expansion options along various financial and strategic metrics, and track their results.
  • Hypothesize: You don’t just let the data speak for itself; you use your intuition to derive theories, and then ask yourself if your narrative and data make sense together.
  • Communications: Convey in writing and in conversation concisely and clearly, so as to make complex problems and difficult decisions readily actionable by Executives.

Requirements

  • Bachelor’s Degree in a technical field such as engineering, physics, mathematics, statistics, computer science, preferred. 
  • 3-7 years as a research analyst and/or data scientist at a high-growth technology based company, or at a top tier financial services company.
  • Experience in Python or R. 
  • Preferred Skills: SQL, Tableau, Looker, Power BI
  • Functional responsibilities likely include experience in Data Collection, Data Analytics, Equity Research, Investment Banking, Statistical Modeling, and/or Machine Learning. 
  • Thrive in a fast-paced environment where you tap into your resourceful, problem-solving nature, and be able to maintain a professional demeanor while working under pressure.
  • Strong analytical, strategic, and innovation skills.
  • Ability to deal with conflicting priorities with ease and confidently communicate with team members at all levels.
  • Highly tech savvy with strong emphasis on solving problems with data.
  • Self-starter, yet seek and enjoy the opportunity to collaborate with others.
  • Detail oriented and analytical, with the ability to follow-through.
  • Self-motivated and able to thrive in a result-driven environment with tight deadlines
  • Compassionate and caring to make the company culture and experience better for all team members.
