The Opportunity:

As an Analytics Engineer on the team, you will partner with Product, Engineering, Sales, Finance, and Operations to supply clean datasets, modeling data in a way that allows end-users to answer their own questions. Stakeholders will include business users asking domain-specific questions up through Analysts working on open-ended investigations. The role will focus primarily on applying software engineering principles to transforming, testing, and documenting data. Underlying data analysis is a secondary focus for the role - as an expert in the data, you’ll be called on to help answer questions.

As the ideal candidate, you’ll have a deep sense of curiosity for data, its contents and oddities, and the ability to design domain-aware data models that help stakeholders reason about business processes. Deliverables will include new datasets, documentation, performance measurement and reporting, experiment analysis, forecasting, inventory controls, and exception reporting, communications around findings, and training for our data customers.

Our team focuses on writing clean and concise SQL, careful communication, and thoughtful data modeling to support fast analytics. We leverage both programming languages and BI tools like Looker for exploration and presentation. We love to learn and teach! We encourage collaboration and recognize the importance of supporting each other – no single person can know everything!

What We’re Looking for:

  • Endless curiosity and the desire to make a real impact
  • The courage to admit you don’t understand something
  • SQL proficiency: joins, aggregation
  • Understanding of data quality and usability
  • A strong desire to automate repetitive work
  • Ability to build data transformation pipelines
  • Data modeling experience: table and schema design, key structures. If you don’t, we’ll coach you!
