We are Locarta – a location-based mobile analytics startup in Berlin. We’re collecting a ton of interesting data on where people go in the real world, to look for insights and patterns among different user groups. For example, we can look at people who have seen an ad for IKEA and work out if it makes them more likely to visit an IKEA store. In short, there are a ton of things that can be done with this data and we’re just starting to scratch the surface of them.
For all this, we have a panel of people who have explicitly agreed to share their location with us (anonymously of course), as well as an app and SDK to measure and collect the relevant data. Now it is time to derive insights from the real world behavior of our users.
Join our team!
We’re a relatively early-stage startup, which is honestly the most fun time. It’s when the big decisions get made and the most interesting problems need to be solved. It also means things stay varied and interesting
Our product requires a few great people rather than many good ones. Joining our team will give you lots of opportunities to shape the company from the early days on
We’re experienced: between us we’ve founded a Y Combinator startup, built the technology for an advertising bidding platform, founded a tech hedge fund and worked at McKinsey
We have meaty problems to solve: How can you accurately determine a store visit when GPS isn’t accurate enough? What can you infer about someone based on where they go? How do you get people to agree to be tracked?
Tech and data insights are our core business, not just a fashionable side project
We are all applied scientists - everything we do is data-driven
We have a world-class team of angels and advisors to help us on our mission
