I have recently applied to a Job by a startup that wants to higher a data analyst. I have been going through the rounds and it seems like they want to hire me for the position. I have recently graduated with a bachelor in statistics and have not yet acquired working experience. However, this company has never had a data analyst and they are asking me questions that I do not have answers to yet because of my lack of work experience. It also probably helpful to mention that the company wants me to collect data from a mobile app. The questions are as follows:
How are going to collect the data from the developer?
How are you going to collect data without a third party (I think he means by not using google analytics or another tool like Cognos.)?
What is the best tool for collecting data from apple?
What are you going to do first when you have the data?
I have not been told what the objectives at the moment are from the company. I assume that I would use SQL to collect data from their database. I'm not sure how I am supposed to get data from the developer. I looked online about tracking mobile app metrics but I would like to know if there is a daily standard procedure that data analysts do when working with mobile apps? What kind of tools would you recommend to work with mobile apps? I know this question is kind of broad but I would love an experienced data analyst to tell a newbie how it goes. Especially since I have the feeling that they don't know either what a data analyst should do.
