Head of Analytics at OneSignal | Powderkeg

Location: United States (Remote)

Employment Type: Full-time

Team: Operations

1+ million mobile app developers and marketing teams use OneSignal to send push notifications, in-app messages, emails, and SMS messages. We started as a YCombinator-backed company. Our founders were frustrated with existing push notification tools, so we built our own system. Our customers can design banners, pop-ups, and interstitials without a single line of code.

When you pick up your smartphone, the first thing you will see are push notifications - maybe there’s a breaking news alert, a football game reminder, a promo from your favorite retailer. Whatever it is, chances are the message you are reading was sent using OneSignal. Now we help businesses send over 10 billion push notifications a day.

We have raised a total of $35M from investors including SignalFire, Y Combinator, Rakuten Ventures, and Hubspot. OneSignal customers include Volkswagen, Verizon, Burger King, 7 Eleven, Zynga, Virgin Mobile, KFC, and many more. Join us in scaling the business! OneSignal has a lot of the great tech startup qualities you'd expect, but we don't stop there.

OneSignal handles a large amount of scale sending over 10 billion messages a day and also emphasizing a healthy life balance and kindness in all our interactions, and focus on ownership and personal growth make OneSignal a uniquely great place to work.

As an early and strategic member of the Operations team, you will be responsible for unifying OneSignal’s data stack and enabling all teams to confidently make data-based decisions to inform our growth & GTM strategy.
