Data Analyst Content Discovery at Showmax

Apply now


At Showmax, we develop, maintain, and operate one of the largest video-on-demand services in Sub-Saharan Africa. In other words, we provide entertainment to customers in developing economies: Hollywood blockbusters, local African productions, 24-hour news, live sports, and more. Our Prague office is responsible for product development, engineering, and R&D activities. Currently, we employ around 100 people and work closely with hundreds more in the Republic of South Africa. 

What you’ll be doing:

  • Checking the impact and statistical significance of the changes we introduce - usually in the form of A/B tests.
  • Providing ad hoc and exploratory analyses leading to better understanding of how customers interact with our service. You will not build business reports.
  • Discussing the outcomes of the analysis with Product managers and thus affecting the immediate choices in how our service evolves.

To apply, you’ll need:

  • Passion for data and understanding how to manage it.
  • Experience processing, analyzing and visualizing data.
    • We work mostly with SQL and Python (especially using pandas and plotly), but we will welcome anyone with a similar experience (R, Matlab, SAGE or other statistical languages).
  • Attention to detail, patience to answer questions and dig deeper. 
  • Willingness to learn and explore.
  • Good communication skills in English.

These will set you apart from other applicants:

  • Knowledge of Spark, Delta Lake, or other open-source big-data tools, and distributed computing of large-scale data.
  • Experience with development and validation of machine learning models.
  • Good understanding of hypothesis testing (e.g. various statistical significance tests).

What we offer:

  • Open and healthy working culture. Want to contribute to the activities of other teams? You’re welcome to do so! Want to work over 40 hours per week? Please don’t :-) 
  • 25 days of holidays + 5 days of on-demand leave (sick days).
  • Fully remote work if you prefer to be at home (even post-covid).
  • Ergonomic office and kitchen full of tasty (often healthy) snacks, if you prefer to join us at the office.
  • Freedom to choose your laptop from a few preselected models. You can choose which OS you use and what you install. You can also choose some additional hardware and software.
  • Access to Udemy, O’Reilly, and our internal library of physical books.
  • Multisport Card (optional, refunded 50%).
  • Language classes (English or Czech) and a very international environment. At the Prague office, you’ll find colleagues from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Brazil, Belgium, South Africa, the USA, and other far-flung places.
  • Dedicated budget for attending conferences, and strong support if you want to present at a conference yourself!
  • Flexible working hours.
  • Access to movies and series on the Showmax platform - both in the office and home.
