For the purposes of collaboration and learning, as well as data security, most of the work must be done on-site at our Baltimore office.
This internship will allow you to cut your teeth on advanced analytics, unearth fascinating insights about consumer credit and mortgage lending and see those insights directly applied to product design. It will be a great introduction to the practice of data-driven product management.
ResponsibilitiesWorking closely with the research manager, you will use SAS and other data analysis and reporting tools to analyze large product usage databases so that we can understand our customers better and optimize our products and content. You will collaborate with product managers to translate business questions into data analysis plans, and to explain the findings in a way that is comprehensible and actionable.
You will also design, initiate, and analyze the results of online consumer surveys about credit, as well as surveys of our end users. You will have the chance to learn about product discovery and user experience design, and participate in user research.
