About the Company: |
Just two years since launch, FindTheBest has grown from a small Santa Barbara garage to a 70+ employee company with 25M+ visitors a month, already a quarter the size of Yelp. Everyday, even the newest employees make a giant impact on our millions of users. If you ’ve ever dreamed of being an entrepreneur —but want the security of a company built for success —there ’s no better place to start your career.
FindTheBest helps people make big decisions. We collect, organize and present data in a consumer-friendly format so our users can pick the best smartphone, college, ski resort (and 800+ others) for them. Many employees specialize in one of 10 broad categories —like travel, sports, health, or education —designing smart filters, colorful visuals, and easy comparison tools to help people decide.
We°re backed by two VC firms: Kleiner Perkins Caufield Byers and New World Ventures. Our founder/CEO previously started DoubleClick (sold to Google for $3.1B). Located in Santa Barbara ( “Silicon Beach ”), we°re fast-growing, and best of all, fun. Employees enjoy snacks, a game room, quick access to the beach, and daily classes with a personal trainer. Career opportunities abound for smart students from just about any background, from software engineering to sales to marketing to research and writing.
As an Italian Research Analyst, you are offered the opportunity to build out an entirely new international FindTheBest domain in Italy. You will not only learn what it takes to build scalable, quality content in a start-up environment, but you will engage in all levels of strategy, execution, and launch for the new site. From market research and competitive analysis, to user behavior research and market segment sizing, you will be building our data comparison tool from the ground up. You will obsess over data quality and determine comparison taxonomy, all while considering the Italian consumer.
