Head of Growth Analytics
This job is no longer accepting applications.
Carwow is looking for a Head of Growth Analytics (Marketing) to join our Data team in London working on a fully remote basis until the New Year.
Buying a car is the 2nd biggest financial decision people make after buying a house, and it’s an incredibly complex one. Consumers face many challenges in the process: from choosing the right car to buy, to making sure they’re getting a good deal - here at carwow we aim to fix them all.
From an attic to the 6th fastest growing company in Europe in 2018; carwow is an online marketplace making car buying better for everyone. Car buying is one of the last areas to be revolutionised by the internet - here at carwow we’re leading the online revolution. Already we’ve improved car buying for 200,000+ people who have bought £5 billion+ worth of cars with our help.
We’re a highly driven (excuse the pun), energetic scaleup with a team of 200+ based in London, Munich and Madrid. We’re backed by some of Europe’s leading VCs & car manufacturer Daimler (Mercedes-Benz) with over £55m of total funding raised.
We’re constantly asking ourselves how we can make car buying better, so if you’re curious, motivated, and want to help us change the future of our industry, get in touch. It’s the chance to be at the very start of something huge.
