Junior Data Analyst


Are you interested in applying your top-level analytical skills to help thousands of kids to excel in their educational career through fun and effective learning? Are you excited about how education can change the world for the better, and are you eager to take part in this mission? Join Futurewhiz!

The role:

Our platforms offer a fun learning experience to primary school children (Squla, scoyo) and an efficient method to practice vocabulary and learn subjects like Math, Science, Biology and languages for secondary school children (WRTS).

We are looking for someone who gets excited by crunching data to discover new facts, patterns and stories. Someone who is curious to find insights in the data and is able to communicate the findings to the business owners - both verbally and visually - in simple terms, and help others to identify relevant actions based on your findings. You will be part of the data science team.

Daily hundreds of thousands of users interact with our platforms, who together log approximately 3 million answers per day. Your responsibilities include extracting, manipulating, and visualizing data, as well as conducting statistical analyses to evaluate A/B tests, identify relationships that might appear in the data and analyzing the user behavior on our platforms. You will work closely with our product and growth teams. Futurewhiz is a data-driven company and therefore the insights you derive will have a direct impact on business and product decisions.

Your tasks:

  • Sharpening business questions and translating them into hypotheses that can be answered with data;

  • Identifying, extracting, processing, and analyzing user behavior data;

  • Designing, executing and evaluating A/B tests;

  • Communicating insights to the business (in reports and presentations);

You will execute these tasks as part of our Amsterdam-based data science team on a full-time basis.

Example of projects you would work on:

  • Setting up and analyzing an A/B test in which the optimal number of questions in a quiz is investigated.

  • Analyze the adoption and usage of a new mini question type.

  • Deep dive into play behavior of users prior to their renewal period.


Who are we looking for?

We are looking for a pragmatic data analyst with a passion for education and learning. Furthermore, you have:

  • A master degree in a relevant field (e.g. business analytics, AI, (behavioral) data science, statistics, econometrics, psychometrics, math);

  • 1-2 years of experience;

  • Experience working with relational databases (e.g. MySQL);

  • Experience working with R;

  • Passion and drive for finding new insights in vast amounts of data;

  • Excellent communication skills in English;

  • A knack for critical thinking

It would be nice if you have:

  • Experience with Tableau

  • Experience in Python

  • Experience in git


The data science team currently consists of four people. The atmosphere is informal, and structural meetings are kept to a minimum. Recurring activities include day starts, learning sessions, quarterly team innovation projects and occasional team outings.

What we offer you:

The Futurewhiz office is located in a beautiful office (with a view!) next to Amsterdam Amstel station. We work hard, play hard and we have a lot of fun and foster an informal yet professional atmosphere. Fresh fruit, snacks, lunch, monthly drinks, an ongoing table tennis tournament and company events are an important part of our culture. We are working in a hybrid way partially from our new office, partially from home. You can get reimbursement for commuting from outside of Amsterdam. We love self-development, and that is why you will be given an annual learning budget. Every employee is also provided a Macbook and a Squla account for life! You will get 24 vacation days per year for full-time employees.

The Futurewhiz crew is a dynamic team that is enthusiastic about creating a fun, new way of learning in this ever-evolving digital age. We believe that a positive work environment not only encourages great teamwork, but is key to motivating our team to produce high quality products. We provide our team members with the resources they need to make sure they can do their jobs properly and get the results we aim for. Although our team is diverse and everyone brings their own interests and uniqueness to the table, every single person is excited about the great work Futurewhiz is doing.
