YouGov is an international research and data, analytics group.
Our mission is to supply a continuous stream of accurate data and insight into what the world thinks so that companies, governments and institutions can better serve the people and communities that sustain them.
We have the best data and the best tools. We continuously challenge conventional approaches to research, and we disrupt our industry to ensure that our clients always get the best solutions.
We are driven by a set of shared values. We are fast, fearless and innovative. We work diligently to get it right. We are guided by accuracy, ethics and proven methodologies.
We trust each other and bring these values into everything that we do.
You will help build some of the largest and most innovative research data products in the world. YouGov has 20 years of historical survey data including billions of data points across dozens of countries.
In this position, you will own how we structure, standardize, process, and analyze that data internally so that we can then build cutting edge data products for our external customers.
You’ll be building data models for our users for the years to come.
If you think of yourself as a data generalist or a data wrangler, this position is a perfect fit for you. This isn’t a position for a pure statistician, data modeler, or a machine learning specialist.
Every day will be very different than the day before. An example day might be something like this :
The night before, a user opened a ticket with a puzzling question about some metadata. Your morning starts with data detective work to identify the issue, and you discover an anomaly.
You realize there’s a historical inconsistency in some metadata, so you write code in Python or R to parse out that metadata, clean it, and standardize it.
Then you update ETLs to Redshift to reflect the new metadata, and you add functionality to the web-frontend tool you built to allow users to search through that metadata in a new way.
