SamKnows is the global leader in internet performance measurement. We’ve been collecting data since 2008 on all manner of metrics, from how good Netflix performance is to figuring out why Fortnite isn’t working for gamers. The SamKnows Government Team works with the most influential Internet Regulators in the world and our single biggest output for our Regulator projects is our reporting and data analysis.

That’s where you come in. You’ll be working closely with the Director, Government Projects, Roxanne Robinson, analysing and visualising the enormous amounts of data we’ve collected. If you’re curious and inquisitive, and interested in showing what strategic insights can be drawn from incredibly comprehensive and complex data sets then it’s likely that you’re the perfect fit for us.

You’ll be joining a supportive and collaborative team where hard-working, determined and responsible candidates will thrive. We’re always keen to hear new ideas and feedback on processes, so someone happy to instigate change and motivated to make things better is essential.

Best of all, SamKnows is the place to change a job into a career. There are tons of opportunities to progress with additional responsibility and autonomy on offer if you want it.
