  • Collaboratively work with Product, Engineering, Customer Success, Sales, and Operations to deliver new insights and drive internal decision making through data
  • Proactively surface new analysis and insights to help optimize pace of execution
  • Implement QA tests and assurances that our dashboards are accurate, resilient and correct

About you:

  • 3+ years experience as a data analyst working with large scale datasets, ideally at a startup or mid-size tech company
  • Proven ability to conceptualize, initiate and drive sophisticated projects and creative analyses to completion with minimal guidance
  • Highly skilled at SQL; additional experience in Python, Ruby, Perl and/or R a nice-to-have
  • Expertise in effective database and dashboard development via Looker, with a focus on accessible visualizations and intelligent schema structure
  • Experience or interest in learning basic ETL development and building data pipelines, leveraging Fivetran and other automation packages
  • High Excel fluency and comfort with statistical analysis; additional experience with statistical packages such as R, MATLAB, SPSS, etc. a nice-to-have
  • Strong communication skills, written and verbal, with particular focus on translating technical concepts and insights clearly including to non-technical audiences
  • Meticulous attention to detail, experience with testing dashboards and queries for correctness and resilience
  • Strong business acumen and orientation with a nose for what insights will be most valuable
  • Positive mindset, low ego, solutions-oriented with a passion for leading the development of internal analytics at a fast-growing startup
