Join us on our exciting journey of growth and become an important part of the Storypark family.

It takes a village to raise a child. At its heart, Storypark’s software keeps families connected to their young children’s learning and development while they are at an early learning centre. We help parents know what their child is doing while they’re apart, and we help teachers better understand the children they care for by bringing their home life into their centres.

We’re a socially conscious group who believe in working to make a difference, not just a dollar. We’re passionate about solving meaningful problems, and we’ve big plans to continue expanding into the uncharted corners of the sector.

This is where you come in.

We’re looking for someone to join the Storypark family, combining a desire to make a difference with a passion for analysing data to inform strategic business decisions.

We’re the market leader in NZ and Australia, but there’s a lot more we want to do, and a lot more places we want to do it. In this role you’ll play a pivotal role helping us discover opportunities to benchmark and optimise our key business and social impact metrics, analyse our business data, translate numbers into actionable insight, inform strategic decisions across the entire company and report directly to our co-CEO.

You’ll collaborate with the sales, marketing and customer success teams to measure success and iterate, continually improve upon our processes and our funnel metrics, isolating hidden correlations and calling out new insights to grow our business.

  • Support sales and marketing in understanding our funnel metrics and recommend areas needing improvement
  • Support us in understanding how customers are engaging with and utilising our products

Is this you?
