Who we are
Mentimeter is a product-first, rapidly-growing, inclusive and profitable startup founded by engineers in 2014. Back then, we felt that boring and inefficient meetings had to go, so we decided to build a platform to change this. Six years later, we are listed as the fastest growing Swedish startup with 150 million end-users and customers from over 150 countries; the journey has just begun.
One of the reasons we are so successful in growing smartly is our continuous improvement on being data-driven in Product development, Marketing and Sales. To continue to help our teams understand our users even more effectively, we are expanding our Data Analytics team with a Lead Data Scientist, working primarily with Product.
In this role you will work hands-on with multiple teams and stakeholders to enable and promote more accurate, data-driven decisions and to provide clarity on how each team is contributing within Product. Together with us you will study user behaviour, evaluate strategic initiatives and experiment with new features. Specifically, you will work closely with our Product Insights Director, Product Area Leads and PMs to understand our users, our product, our paying customers through projects by defining actionable metrics such as presenter “levels”, churn and retention.
We work in small, independent, self-organizing teams. With a large interest across the whole organisation to become more data-driven, we value someone who is in love with solving problems, not with specific solutions or methods, and who is incredibly collaborative. Moreover, we are looking for someone who has a willingness to engage and collaborate on best practices for data use within the company.

Work closely with the Product team who are passionate about Mentimeter’s user experience
Perform analyses to extract actionable insights on user behaviour that will help drive business decisions
Support in structuring KPI frameworks and measurable objectives that help guide and measure the performance of Mentimeter’s strategy
Foster data-driven decision making across the organisation, from A/B testing guidelines to leading embedded Product Data Scientists to help optimise good data practices within their teams
Be an important part of a growing analytics team to define standards and good practices
