We're expert travellers and we love helping you. Tripaneer is the largest travel experience website in the world.
Discover Holidays now is looking for a growth and strategy analyst to join us in Amsterdam.

Full time and long term | Join our international team in Amsterdam. 

Are you looking for a purpose-driven start-up that uses data for most of its decisions to improve and expand it further? Do you love using data to find areas of improvement and enable exponential company growth? Then we would love to hear from you.

As the growth and strategy analyst, your role will be to use data and facts to grow the business. Examples of that will be that you challenge assumptions, figure out what direction the business should go based on data and experiments, enable the team to make the best data-driven decisions themselves and find pragmatic algorithmic solutions to point teams in the direction where they bring the most growth. 

You will have dedicated responsibilities, but also partially a free role in the company to search for gaps of improvement continuously, by own initiative or on request. You have a very strong drive for company growth.

Job description:

As the growth and strategy analyst, you will be responsible for guiding and supporting the team with data in a long-term effort to help facilitate a strong data-driven culture. You will sometimes work on request, and sometimes challenge current assumptions or help find gaps and room for improvement from the data.

You will have a dedicated analytical role within and you require a very strong business sense, a pragmatic approach and focus on company growth at all times.

Topics can range from very high-level (Eg: What market to move in next? What languages to expand to?) to mid-level (Eg: What is the value of offering payments on-site?) to detail-level (Eg: What shall we prioritize to add most value for surf camps in Sri Lanka - getting more supply, improve landing pages, or explore new marketing channels?). Regularly, the best solution will be building reports and dashboards to scale your own workload.

You will report to our CEO, but will work in close collaboration with key people from various teams and levels throughout the organization.  



  • Build dashboards and reports around growth initiatives and business priorities, in collaboration with business owners
  • Create forecasts and collaborate with the finance team to make sure we maintain a healthy financial situation
  • Facilitate a data-driven culture (Eg: by building dashboards, finding areas for improvement in data and explaining those, empowering the teams to find and explore their own data, etc.)
  • Gather data to validate or invalidate common assumptions about the business
  • Create or help create prioritization algorithms for business efficiency or operational efficiency
  • Collaborate and communicate with the Marketing, Supply, and Product Teams to understand business needs and pro-actively find the most relevant questions and areas for further research.
  • Continuously find smaller and bigger areas of improvement and feed those ideas back to the team
  • Deep dive into strategic A/B experiments to understand implications of website and business changes
  • Track and measure over time change impacts of changes that are hard to A/B test
  • Help define KPI’s and metrics that are measurable and closest to overall business performance



  • Candidate must possess at least a Bachelor’s Degree, in mathematics, engineering, physics or a similar field
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills (English written & verbal)
  • Proven experience in mySQL
  • Decent scripting experience or willingness to learn
  • Between 1-5 years experience in a commercial data-driven role (Eg: business analyst, business intelligence, or business-driven data scientist)
  • At least 1 year experience in E-commerce or digital growth company
  • Hands-on experience on ownership, execution and collaboration in a fast-paced environment
  • Entrepreneurial experience is a big plus
  • Experience with MongoDB/JSON is a plus
  • Experience with online experimentation is a plus
  • Team lead experience, or ambition with potential to grow and build a team is a plus
