Interviews and onboarding are conducted virtually, a part of being a distributed-first company.

    • Use compelling data, deep business acumen and exceptional communication to drive business strategy and execution
    • Identify business challenges, performance bottlenecks and growth opportunities
    • Conduct insightful analyses on major trends, thinking 3 steps ahead to guide emerging strategy
    • Propose rapid experiments to test the effect of new strategies or initiatives, and iterate quickly
    • Confirm the impact of changes, and recommend a course forward using A/B testing methodology

More about you
You've been working with data for 8+ years and have a BS degree in Statistics, Mathematics, Economics, Computer Science or other quantitative field.
You have experience in building transparent prioritization / recommendation engines and experience using data to influence operational teams. 
You have strong communication skills (non-technical) and core tech skills 
You are someone who actively likes to mentor / grow less experienced analysts.
You have strong business acumen, love driving strategy, making big changes, and influencing others. You have a history of driving measurable impact in close collaboration with operational colleagues.
You combine curiosity with critical thinking and good judgment, and like asking "why" to unravel a seemingly complex problem and get to the root cause.
You know how to gather, document, and interpret business requirements; always knowing how to ask the ‘why’ underpinning all requests.
You’re a senior ‘pillar of the team’, confident in your business acuity, analytics expertise and communication / coordination skills to push through ambiguity and upskill those around you.
When you encounter a problem you come up with multiple solutions, weigh the tradeoffs and efforts, identify the best path forward, and exercise good judgment to drive ahead.
To keep pace with our rapid growth and evolution you learn new things quickly. You can take an ambiguous assignment and move quickly to deliver iterative value. You use multiple tools and methods to find trends and correlations by mining data, and couple that with intuition and quick tests to prioritize how to drive forward on complicated problems.
