Our mission is to democratize opportunity for students everywhere.

The Handshake community includes 14 million students and young alumni at more than 900 universities. We connect talent from across all 50 states with over 400,000 employers recruiting on Handshake - from every Fortune 500 company to thousands of local mom and pop shops, nonprofits, startups, and more.
We welcome all people. We celebrate diversity of all kinds and are committed to creating an inclusive culture built on a foundation of respect for all individuals. We seek to hire, develop and retain talented people from all backgrounds. Individuals from non-traditional backgrounds, historically marginalized or underrepresented groups strongly encouraged to apply.

Handshake is hiring an Insights Analyst for our fast-growing employer business unit. You'll be responsible for bringing Handshake’s unique data to life for the 400,000 employers on our platform. This is a pivotal time in the growth of our business, as we scale our enterprise offering and create the category of proactive, data-driven recruiting for entry level (college) talent.
You’ll be applying insights to transform leading employers’ talent strategy, working closely with executives at leading companies and partnering with our strategic account management team. Your entrepreneurial approach and curiosity will also shape Handshake’s strategy and inform both students and employers on how they can find their ideal role. Entry level recruiting has not been historically optimized with data; you could change all that!
Marketplace insights. Handshake connects millions of students & recent grads with roles at over 400,000 employers - and have rich data containing deep insights about how the marketplace is working (or not). You’ll be able to produce genuinely new, powerful analysis on this space that will change how people approach the market.
Custom insights for employers. Work with the world’s leading employers and their executives (CXO, VP, SVP) to help them understand and improve their key metrics. For example, determining an employer’s brand awareness within a specific talent pool and the conversion of those students to interns.
Employer value (ROI) analysis. Develop robust metrics and datasets for analyzing the value employers are getting from Handshake, and work with the product & engineering teams to scale these.
Instrumental in building the Insights Team from the ground up: Insights is a fast growing part of our business. You’ll get to help shape the culture of the team and partner with internal leaders to set short and long term goals!
