The Analytics team at LOVOO is passionate about bringing together people and data.

On our app, we spark millions of new human connections every day. We gain a deep understanding of our users to improve their experience. We leverage massive amounts of data to inform critical product and business decisions. We constantly develop our toolset to deliver actionable insights and recommendations. We are a team of highly skilled Data Analysts, Data Scientists, and Analytics Engineers, working together between two locations (Dresden, Berlin). We have years of experience collaborating remotely. And we are looking for YOU to join us as Head of Analytics!

Especially in the current pandemic situation, it is important for us to protect our employees as best as possible. We regularly monitor and assess the current situation to decide whether to work fully remote or with a hybrid model, depending on the incidence. Even though we want to maintain our comprehensive home office concept in post-COVID times, a regular exchange on site with other team colleagues in our beautiful offices is very important to us. Therefore, please note that the advertised position is not a 100% remote position in the future. The advertised positions are intended for the respective locations mentioned in the job posting (Dresden, Berlin, or both).

If you have any questions do not hesitate to reach out to us. You can find the contact details below the job advertisements.

We work shoulder to shoulder towards our shared vision and encourage people of color, trans people, queer, gay and non-binary people, and those with disabilities to apply to join our team. Everyone is welcome at LOVOO. If you like, you can include your pronoun in your application (e.g. he, she, they).
