  • Support the “single source of truth” for the org through creating and maintaining data models for use by other teams and by identifying and correcting data gaps, inconsistencies, etc.
  • Collaborate with product and marketing to support implementation of new data/analytics tools by , e.g., Segment event tracking.
  • Respond to ad hoc requests for data and analysis.
  • Onboard new technical and business users onto our systems and tools
  • Identify opportunities for better tooling, data systems, and process to help improve operations and drive growth.

  • Previous industry experience preferred (consulting, bizops, revops, etc.)
  • Experience with data modeling tools (LookML, dbt, Dataform) a plus
  • Experience collaborating deeply across an organization to understand department process, needs, and goals, and building custom analysis/reporting to match
  • Experience working with an executive audience to answer strategic questions
  • Strong business sense; understanding of the drivers/metrics of SaaS businesses preferred
  • Ability to seamlessly switch “altitude” between specific technical questions and broad org-level KPIs/strategies
  • Demonstrated proficiency at telling a story with data
  • Quick study - ability to quickly dissect a problem and drive insightful analysis is key
