2020 has been a big year for Paxos. We’ve launched several products and rolled out partnerships with a number of key partners. As we continue to bring on more customers, launch new products and add new partners to our roster, the volume and complexity of the data we are generating and the data needs of the business are growing rapidly. As a result, we are growing the Reporting & Analytics team, hiring key senior roles to scale our ability to use data across the company. 


One of these roles is a Senior Data Analyst who will work closely with senior business stakeholders to conduct analyses, develop key metrics and self-service dashboards and generally be a go-to resource for data questions. This role will report to the Director of Reporting & Analytics and as a senior member of the team, will have a significant impact on the shape and direction of what analytics is at Paxos in 2021 and beyond.

What you will do: 

  • Empower cross-functional partners and stakeholders to make data-driven decisions by delivering high quality analyses, reporting & actionable insights
  • Design, build and maintain self-service dashboards - working directly with end-users to ensure our partners and stakeholders have access to the data they need
  • Design key metrics to track and understand our products’ performance
  • Be a mentor and role model for more junior analysts on the team, both technically and professionally
  • Build an understanding of our products, customers and the markets we operate in and proactively combine this with your data expertise to make actionable recommendations to the business
  • Conduct one-off analyses and present findings and recommendations to senior leadership
  • Document & build processes to share knowledge - from table and column definitions to workflow schedules to codebases
  • Seek to scale everything 10x: from automation to writing reusable code 

What you should have:

  • 2+ years of experience performing data analysis. Fintech and/or financial markets experience preferred.
  • 2+ years of experience with an advanced understanding of SQL (think window functions)
  • Experience designing, building, automating, maintaining dashboards in BI/Visualization software (e.g. Looker/Tableau/Sisense)
  • Ability to translate business problems and requirements into data problems and communicate results back to non-technical audiences
  • Ability to multitask, prioritize, and manage multiple projects in a fast-paced ambiguous environment
  • Some experience with any of: Python/scripting languages, predictive analytics, experimentation & statistical analysis, metric design & data modeling
  • Ability to work autonomously in a fast-paced environment with ambiguous problems to solve

While we are not requiring prior work in the fintech, crypto, or blockchain industries, it is preferred candidates have some understanding of and/or enthusiasm about the space.

Other than these qualifications, we're hoping to bring someone on board who loves what they do and can't wait to join an amazing team.

An Insider's view of Paxos

What are some social events your company does?

We have fantastic company-wide events and functional team events. My favorite of recent was the Compliance Team outing consisting of a Cycle Beats class at Equinox followed by a delicious group dinner in Flatiron. Also, you can't beat the weekly Happy Hours where you can connect with everyone at the company!

What does your typical day look like?

Everyday at Paxos is filled with collaboration between team members, departments, offices, and partners. The ops day kicks-off by call with our Singapore office and is structured around daily crypto and fiat processing windows. My favorite part of the day is meeting with engineers to improve our products for both our customers and employees.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I joined Paxos back in 2017 as a Software Engineer. Now that I have grown into a Senior Software Engineer 2 years later, I have more confidence working with new technology and working cross functionally. This growth has also given me more opportunities to own projects from end to end and embrace new challenges.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

As a member of the product team, collaborating with other teams at the company is core to my day-to-day at Paxos. We have a daily scrum with our executive team and functional leads every morning to discuss any important business items and for any project that I work on, I work very closely with our engineering, operations, BD and compliance teams.
