Job summary
Good storytelling starts with great listening. At Audible, that means each role and every project has our audience in mind. Because the same people who design, develop, and deploy our products also happen to use them. To us, that speaks volumes.
The Audible Global Insights and Data Science group seeks an Analytics Engineer to support the success of our mission critical data initiatives. In this role, you will be part of an international team of analysts and data scientists, developing data assets that power our wide ranging suite of data products, from BI frameworks to data science models.
You will contribute to a data-driven culture by helping teams transform their business requirements into foundational data systems that provide standardization and consistency across metrics and dimensions. You will work across the entire business and be exposed to a wide range of functions from engineering and data science, to marketing, product management and content development.
You will be able to work with minimal oversight, conduct multiple tasks simultaneously, develop and deploy data pipelines, contribute to the code repository, perform code reviews and quality assurance checks, and help guide others in best practices on analytics engineering practices. Critical to the success of this role is your ability to work with big data while developing expertise on a wide range of tools and systems within a vast data infrastructure ecosystem. And just as critical as the technical requirements are soft skills such as effective collaboration within a cross-functional team, and clear and compelling communication of requirements and recommendations.
You are able to work with relatively minimal instruction and oversight, conduct multiple tasks and projects simultaneously, collaborate with cross functional stakeholders, and own deliverables end-to-end. You have the ability to work with big data, have a meticulous eye for detail and consistency, and enjoy architecting clean data sets by modeling data and metrics to empower employees to make data-driven decisions with accurate information.
You enjoy enabling and scaling self-serve analytics for team members across the organization. You take pride in seeing your work represented across all spectrums of data products, knowing you have developed the foundation on which others are reliant upon. And you embody the Audible people principle of "Imagine and Invent Before They Ask' by bringing creative ideas around data, processes and pipelines that will advance the team to the next stage.
As an Analytics Engineer, you will...• Collaborate with data professionals and business stakeholders to translate business objectives and product requirements into tangible data assets.• Develop, deploy, maintain and monitor data pipelines in support of business intelligence and data science data products.• Continuously evolve and optimize data assets within the data warehouse through enhancement and deprecation initiatives.• Contribute and optimize the code repository that contains all business logic, and conduct ongoing code reviews and quality assurance as part of a CI/CD process.• Enhance the data catalog through documentation of business logic and data transformations.• Facilitate data governance by enforcing standardization and consistency of core business metrics and dimensions.• Help to define and improve our internal standards for code best practices, including style, readability, and maintainability.• Codify and democratize best practices, and coach/advise other team members on data modeling, SQL query optimization & reusability.
Basic Qualifications• 3+ years experience working in a data or analytics engineering role.• Superior SQL skills, with experience transforming raw data into clean models, optimizing SQL performance, and troubleshooting & improving others' code.• Strong understanding of data warehousing concepts (e.g. ELT, schema management, materialization) and data modeling concepts (e.g. Star Schema).• Experience in designing, building, and administering modern data pipelines within data warehouses.• Experience with Snowflake, BigQuery, or Redshift.• Experience with version control tools such as Github or Gitlab.• Experience with business intelligence solutions (Looker, Tableau, Periscope, Mode).• Experience collaborating with multiple business functions and stakeholders to develop metrics and key insights.• Proficiency with Python.
Preferred Qualifications• Clear and direct communication skills about complex, technical topics.• Excellent communication and project management skills with a customer service focused mindset.

An Insider's view of Audible

What are some social events your company does?

Volunteering regularly is organic. It’s gratifying to help create opportunities for others and to know I share that common interest with the people I work with every day. I say it all the time, but it’s why I really love working here. Audible fosters and encourages contributing meaning beyond my day-to-day work. It’s in our company’s DNA.


Senior Director, Tech Program Management

What projects are you most excited about?

We’re able to harness market-leading tools and datasets while benefiting from the employee experience made possible by Audible’s distinctive culture. To be able to employ cutting-edge machine learning technology with a mission is really unique. It’s a playground for us! Every day is a pretty unique opportunity; it doesn't happen everywhere.


Director, Data Science

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

There is constant learning. Even with being here for 15 years, I’ve never felt bored, even for a single day. Every day I’m learning something new that keeps me going. I’ve been on the iOS team, Android team, the services side and now I’m leading the content publishing team. So, it’s end to end and always an opportunity to learn and grow.


Senior Director, Software Development

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

A collaborative culture like ours fosters productive conversations that enable our team to deliver new ideas faster. We go into meetings and have healthy debates with diverse, and sometimes strong, opinions. But we always think about what's right for the customer. Experimentation is critical. We have to move, fail, and innovate fast.


VP, Product Management

How does the company support your career growth?

I’ve seen a lot of my colleagues shift from different roles within QA. Audible provides incredible opportunities for engineers to grow their skills, from soft skills through training to grow professionally. A lot of opportunities exist, and our mentorship program has really facilitated that.
