Who are Opensignal?

Opensignal, a mobile analytics company, is the global standard for measuring real-world mobile network experience. Using billions of measurements collected 24/7 from tens of millions of smartphones, we analyse real-world mobile network experience at the largest scale and frequency in the wireless industry. We believe measuring how the network performs directly through users’ eyes is key to building better wireless networks. Our insights are used across the industry by mobile operators, telecoms regulators, equipment manufacturers and analysts. We have done business across six continents and have driven press headlines in 80 countries, in an industry impacting the lives of billions around the world.

Founded in 2012, Opensignal is a high-growth global company harnessing the power of mobile technologies and big data analytics to redefine how the mobile industry measures network performance. We’re part of the Global Telecoms ‘Power 100’, TechCity Future Fifty, and backed by an impressive portfolio of investors.

Having doubled our team to over 60 within the last year, we plan to grow beyond 80 employees by the end of 2019, to help drive our vision. We're headquartered in Angel, London, where you’ll find most of our employees, who we like to call 'Opensignalers', but the teams you'll work with are global. A truly international team, our ‘Opensignalers’ work across four continents, and represent over 25 nationalities and languages.

Purpose of the role

Our mission is to be the source of truth on mobile network experience. Fulfilling this is hard, it requires constant innovation. Mobile networks are evolving, new services are gaining in popularity.

Last year we released our video experience metric making us the first in the mobile analytics industry to report on this. To maintain our lead, we need to measure experience of even more current and future services. You’ll be at the forefront of evaluating new experience metrics, working with people within the business and in the broader industry and academia.
