Product Analyst

Balderton Capital

London, England, United Kingdom

Full time



Nov 21

We’re growing our Product function at Balderton, and are looking for the first hire to report into our Head of Product. Product in a venture capital fund is an exciting place to be, and this role is very different to a traditional product analyst role. We’re building products, processes and shortcuts to give our internal teams superpowers. Whether that means creating things ourselves, buying best-in-class tech or going into scrappy start-up mode to launch a quick MVP. We aren’t afraid of getting our hands dirty to get the job done, and make the impossible possible.

Your day to day could include:

  • Owning analysis to solve one-off questions and requests from internal teams, often involving some data extraction, cleaning and analysis
  • Identifying when one-off questions are repeated, and hacking together simple workflows to automate these manual processes, using no-code tools or writing a simple script
  • Structuring and building queries and reports using SQL or Python, to provide information proactively to internal teams
  • Identify new candidate signals that could inform Dealflow, and analyse the value case for integrating them into our stack
  • Supporting the analysis, design, build and testing of internal products
  • Designing processes, onboarding and migration solutions to support the use of our internal product and data stack
  • Troubleshooting and debugging product errors, helping to maintain our product and data stack


  • You’re highly numerically-minded and analytical, with a degree in a STEM subject
  • You have at least 2 years of experience working in product, consulting, finance or data & analytics
  • It’s a bonus if you have an understanding of VC/PE & finance
  • You have experience working with data, and are very proficient coding in Python and writing SQL queries. Other languages are a bonus, experience using BigQuery or Looker is preferable
  • You’re comfortable structuring broad and unstructured problems, logically sorting information and using a first principle approach
  • You’re able to clean, transform and manipulate large datasets to answer business problems
  • Your attention to detail is excellent, and you aren’t afraid to get into the weeds of a problem. You enjoy working on knotty and interesting projects, and relish a challenge.
