Posted 3 months ago

Stripe Partners is a consultancy working with leading technology-led businesses like Facebook, Spotify, Intel and Verizon to develop new strategies, products and services. Our heritage as a business is in the human sciences: applying the tools of anthropology, sociology and design to identify deep insights that unlock innovation opportunities. 

An increasing proportion of our work is in the strategic innovation space, helping clients identify new markets and develop propositions from scratch. Within these projects our work often intersects different forms of data: ethnographic, behavioral, survey, market and commercial. We often interact with client-side data scientists on projects, informing their analysis and models. We believe that the most effective innovation is developed through the combination and synthesis of these diverse data-types. 

We are building our capacity for data analysis by hiring an ambitious, creative Data Strategist who has the experience to work across these diverse datasets. The Data Strategist will help us identify better opportunities and solutions for our clients, alongside building out Stripe Partners data analysis capabilities across the business.
