Job: Turn data into business!

Data has been used for business for centuries.

For example, I came across this detailed book of tables made over 500 years ago in India.

It’s the revenue in copper coins from the spring and autumn harvests. The book covers many commodities, including sugarcane, indigo, hemp, poppies, cotton, pulses, rice and melons.

How they analysed it, I don’t know.

The world is more complicated now, and our information technology is luckily even more powerful. (See our data services page for how we help people make use of it.)

Today’s announcement is that we’re hiring a Product Manager (to Director).

Their job is to build more products on top of our platform.

We’re looking for someone who has worked in data businesses – whether ones that resell data (e.g. Bloomberg or Experian), or ones that make tools for data (e.g. Business Intelligence).

If that’s you, or someone you know, please apply or get them to apply!

(This hiring is part of a spate. In case you missed it we’re also hiring data scientists and a community manager.)
