ABOUT THE ROLE:
Economists at Udemy are tasked with challenging marketplace design and analysis in a two-sided marketplace context, spanning behavioral economics/pricing, microeconomics, and macroeconomics (because of our global presence). The Marketplace Economist Intern will conduct economic modelling and analysis within the newly formed pricing team that sits in the larger marketing org and works across the business. Your work will improve monetization of the core product, as well as lead to creation of new products well suited to the marketplace. You will be involved in major pricing model restructuring initiatives from fine-tuning algorithmic pricing strategies for the current marketplace, or creating new promotional pricing strategies for markets and products that don’t currently exist, or you will be involved in creating entirely new monetization paths, supply side relationship optimization, and using applied economics principles in your project.
You have a bias for action, you can work cross functionally and seamlessly with Data Science to conduct and own economic research, experimentation; You are also comfortable with frequently presenting and sharing your ideas with the company in general.
