Job Description

Uniplaces is building a trusted, global brand for students. We believe in empowering student mobility and we have started by making the process of finding accommodation easier. We’re solving real-life pains and we’re backed by top-tier investors such as Atomico, Octopus Investments, Shilling Capital Partners, and Caixa Capital to help us achieve this better and faster.

  • Experience with working with large data sets from multiple data sources;
  • Top Excel skills;
  • Experience in SQL;

Preferred Tools knowledge:

  • A company culture that is people-driven and that focuses on personal development and training to help you tap your talent into its full extent;
  • Access to a pool of talent that is hard to find. Your stakeholders and peers will come from world-class backgrounds and will have stepped up within Uniplaces. You’ll find mentors and role models;
  • Working in Lisbon, at one of the coolest up-and-coming startups in Europe, where the sun always shines and the seafood is delicious!


What else do you need to know?
