As one of the top revenue-driving brands in the Match Group (the owner of Tinder, OkCupid,, and with over 150M users PlentyOfFish has a unique opportunity for optimizing our business using data.

We are looking for someone to be a part of our extraordinary Strategy & Analytics team, who would work cross-functionally with the rest of the organization to help identify, understand, and correct business and product challenges facing PlentyOfFish. The Business Analyst will deliver high-quality product analysis with an eye for understanding our marketplace of daters; will collaborate with the product, engineering, business intelligence, and marketing teams.

We are looking for people with strong quantitative training, deep knowledge of what makes a marketplace successful, a passion for telling stories with insights gleaned from data, and the ability to communicate results clearly to non-technical colleagues.

If you have a detail-oriented, creative mind and love complex challenges, we want to hear from you.

So, what will you do?

  • Quantitatively analyze user behavior to help understand the impact that our product changes have on our users and our marketplace, including driving learning from split tests
  • Provide squad members with deep dive quantitative analyses and present them in an immediately usable format, extracting key insights from massive, complex data sets
  • Collaborate with data science, product management, and data engineering teams to share and develop knowledge
  • Identify opportunities to automate repetitive analyses
  • Become a business-minded, analytical expert in either our Protect & Care (Customer Success & User Safety) or Strategic Initiatives squad (TBD based upon candidate fit)

What does our ideal candidate look like?

  • 2+ years of progressive professional experience using quantitative analysis to make product-focused recommendations
  • Strong understanding of incrementality and sizing business problems and opportunities
  • Proven achievements resulting from data analysis in both collaborative and independent work environments
  • Experience with ambiguous and complex analytical assignments
  • Experience with raw clickstream data (event data) and datasets of 100 million+ records
  • Understanding of basic statistical concepts such as confidence, normal distribution, correlation, linear regression, and linear programming
  • Familiarity with SQL, ideally with application to Google BigQuery
  • Intermediate knowledge of Microsoft Excel (no VBA required)
  • A vertical skillset that encompasses problem identification, analysis, solution definition, results, and communication

Bonus Points:

  • Experience with a fast-paced gaming company
  • Experience with financial analysis and statistical analysis
  • Experience in an internal or external management consulting/advisory role
  • Have held a similar position at an online dating, social networking, or subscription-based business
  • You're a user of PlentyOfFish or other online dating services

What this role is not:

  • Focused on requirements gathering
  • Data science (although we do love it!)
  • Business Intelligence Analyst or Business Intelligence Engineer

At POF, our vision is to create the most dates for our 150M+ users around the world.

We're one of the top revenue driving brands in the Match Group (comprised of Tinder, OkCupid, Hinge,, NASDAQ: MTCH ( )), and we still remain a small close-knit team based in downtown Vancouver.

If you're keen on solving complex problems at scale, you want to work in collaborative cross-functional squads, and you value autonomy and accountability, we should talk.
