In this position you will be working on Nakuna Helsinki’s marketing analytics and business development. Your main tasks include for example market scaling, research and marketing analytics. You will search for most viable solutions for e-commerce and analyze different statistics in digital media platforms: how does the brand resonate and what’s the investment and value of a new customer in different countries.

Ambitious attitude and self-initiative working style will help you succeed in this position.

It is important that you are committed to your work and want to deliver high-quality results to support Nakuna Helsinki as they take over the world.

What Nakuna Helsinki is expecting from you:
