Staff Data Analyst, Retail Lead at Harry's Inc.
The Analytics team is a critical function that supports data-driven decision-making throughout Harry's. The team is the central nervous system of the organization -- we make sure that data flows throughout the company, and everyone has the information they need to make better decisions faster. The analytics team thinks about data and insights from the factory floor in Germany, across our global supply chain, through the marketing we show our customers, to when the customer gets a package at their door or at their nearest retailer.
About the Role
Harry’s is seeking a Data Analyst who uses analytics to generate and deliver insights that will drive improvements, uncover new truths, and enable smart decision-making across our sales channels. In this role specifically, you will be responsible for diving deep into our Retail performance. You will help us (1) optimize how we show up on the shelf in-store, (2) maximize return on marketing spend on retail marketing and trade programs, and (3) understand the whats, whys, and so what’s of the competitive landscape.
Because our business is complex, we need someone with both a strong business acumen as well as excellent technical skills. You’ll work with key decision-makers throughout the company, and also share your insights and recommendations with all levels of the business, including our CEO.
Most importantly, we are looking for someone who is a builder and entrepreneur -- someone who is excited about using data and analytics to push the whole company forward.
Here's what you'll accomplish:
- Own end-to-end analyses to answer important business questions using data. For example, you might:
- Run matched market tests to understand the impact on Harry’s and retailer revenue from of various in-store marketing vehicles
- Build algorithms to identify, predict, and fix inventory and merchandising issues in-store
- Stand up dashboards, analyses, and tools for our growth marketing partners to understand and optimize the allocation of media dollars across channels and campaigns
- Measure how a retail / brand campaign created incremental revenue and profit across DTC, Retail, and other third party channels
- Help define how we measure and report out on performance, and regularly track and share the overall performance of the business to drive strategic planning
- Support the forecasting team in understanding variance vs. prior forecasts
- Identify analytics pain points and inefficiencies, and develop new tools and automated process to optimize and streamline
- Be a data-evangelist across the organization, sharing best practices and insights with cross-functional teams
- 4+ years of experience as a Data Analyst or Business Analyst, or a background in Computer Science, Statistics, or Mathematics
- Proficient Technical Skill - You are fluent in writing SQL, Python, or R to query and manipulate datasets, answer questions, and drive end-to-end complete analysis that help accelerate the business. You have a history of creating effective visualizations to clearly drive your point across to various stakeholders using visualization software, like Looker or Tableau.
- Math Wizardry - You love to geek out on numbers; you have a hunger to apply (or learn how to apply) statistical concepts and optimization models.
- Strong Business Acumen – You think deeply about business strategy and profitability, and have experience translating the business ins and outs into data driven problems. You can proactively identify and investigate potential areas of opportunity with independence.
- Engaged Analytical Thought Partner – You are excited about partnering with coworkers to figure out how analytics can solve problems. You are skilled in translating business questions into data analysis visions to execute. You are great at communicating in order to both fully understand someone’s business needs and to communicate potential limitations of your approach.
- Tactical Problem Solver – You have experience boiling down medium and large scope data problems into measurable and achievable blocks of work. You have the foresight to identify and dismantle potential roadblocks ahead of time. Furthermore, you’re pragmatic: you can identify and work on the most important problems first and you want to find the highest-impact lowest cost solution.
- Clear and concise communicator – You know how to communicate complex concepts effectively and concisely and are comfortable presenting and debating in large groups. We’re looking for strong data advocates who can plug into cross-functional working teams seamlessly and drive cultural pushes for the organization to become more data driven.
Values that might describe you:
- You like to solve problems - You push yourself to solve problems in novel, scalable ways so that you are never solving the same problem twice
- You are curious and a learner - You are always seeking to improve yourself and your team, and you love to learn new things while going deeper in the areas you know
- You thrive on direct, honest, and supportive communication and feedback
- You are infectiously optimistic - To you, there’s nothing more exciting than a new challenge. Hard things are hard, but you don’t let that get in the way
Who you will work with:
- You will report into the Senior Manager, Harry’s Analytics
- Within the broader Data org, you'll work most closely with the other data analysts on the team, and the data engineers that support our infrastructure
- Within the larger H’ org, you’ll work closely with our Retail team, Growth marketing leads, Brand leadership teams, and Finance / Operational Planning teams
