Lift Ventures is a San Francisco-based company that builds and scales innovative, data-driven consumer web properties. We are not your typical VC fund or incubator, but a startup studio that funds and manages our own portfolio of websites that reach millions of users each month.
Over the past few years, our team has developed a proprietary research methodology that helps us discover untapped opportunities in a variety of target markets. We utilize these insights to iterate rapidly and build category-leading websites. The sites in our portfolio are topically diverse, but all are established or emerging leaders in their respective niches, including an attractions/activities search engine, an online shopping recommendation engine, and an aggregator of study materials for students. We are profitable and growing rapidly, with plans this year to launch sites in several new verticals while continuing to improve and grow our existing businesses.
Our management team currently works out of an office in SOMA, and oversees a larger remote team (50+ people) that handles most of the day-to-day operations for sites in our portfolio.
As an Analyst, you will help us research new markets and competitors, build operating models for our new businesses, and be our team’s go-to problem solver, strategy formulator, and growth hacker. You will lead a variety of interesting analytical and operational projects across our portfolio, and in doing so, learn what it takes to build a successful, consumer-facing website from the ground up.
