We’re looking for a Paid Content Analyst to join our small but quickly growing team. The position will be based in our London Tileyard office.

The analyst will provide analysis on digital content monetization strategies across all three of our research areas (Music, Online Video and Mobile Content). His or her research will cover topics such as freemium, pricing, audience segmentation, cross-industry best practices, digital product innovation, free-to-paid conversion, full stack companies, competing with free and entertainment wallet share. If these are the sorts of topics that excite you then you’re the person for us!

Roles and responsibilities include:

  • Write regular, thoroughly researched, analytical reports to be published in the MIDiA Research subscription service
  • Generate and maintain datasets, and systematically track key companies and their metrics
  • Build a network of key industry contacts
  • Work on client consulting projects
  • Write regular blog posts on the MIDiA blog
  • Provide advice and analysis to MIDiA clients
  • Present at industry events and client sessions
  • Support MIDiA’s commercial strategy
  • Build a reputation as an industry thought leader

In short, this is an exciting job in which you get paid to learn and to stay on top of the latest trends, as well as getting to work with some of the most important and innovative companies in media and technology.

Requirements and experience: This is a mid level position – we’re looking for someone who has established a track record and reputation in digital content strategy in either a media company or the content division of a technology company. Hands-on experience of content strategy, digital rights and commercial strategy are key, as are experience of working with data and the ability to identify trends and grasp the bigger picture. We want someone who is able to think on their feet, make bold observations, actionable recommendations, and make difficult calls when they need to be made. Excellent writing skills with the ability to transform data into a succinct, gripping narrative are essential. Experience within music, TV or mobile is preferred, as are strong Powerpoint and Excel skills.

We are a small but quickly growing company so this is an opportunity to get in near the start of what will be an exciting journey. But that also means it is crucial that the successful candidate is a team player with a flexible approach. This is not a standard 9 to 5 office job! Some travel may also be required.
