The new site, www.1potato.com, pulls in opportunities from both employers and recruitment consultants around the world.
It is the latest venture from London-based company MrWeb, which has been running a global job board for market research professionals since 1998, and also publishes the Daily Research News service.
MrWeb’s managing director, Nick Thomas, said: “There’s a fair bit of overlap between the two areas, and the launch of 1potato is in part a response to persistent requests from MrWeb’s advertisers over the last ten years, for something specifically covering data and analytics.
“Growth in the area has obviously accelerated very rapidly since about 2012 with the meteoric rise of big data, but at present there’s not a lot resembling this service, here, in the US or elsewhere.”
MrWeb’s audience is worldwide but with concentrations in the UK, US and Asia, and 1potato will target the same regions.
