  • Lead the creation of a standardized process for instrumenting components and collecting data across multiple products in our ecosystem.

  • Collaborate regularly with stakeholders, primarily in our Insights and Operations teams to assist with data-related technical issues, ad-hoc requests, and ongoing support of their data infrastructure needs.

  • Create data tools and analytics reports and assist team members in building and optimizing our products, while maintaining industry standard privacy practices.

What We Are Looking For

  • 3+ years of experience in a data and analytics role with either a Computer Science, Statistics, Informatics, or Information System background.

  • Advanced working SQL knowledge and experience working with relational databases, query authoring (SQL) as well as working familiarity with a variety of databases including Postgres, Cassandra, and NoSQL.

  • Experience building and optimizing ‘big data’ data pipelines, architectures and data sets.

  • Build processes supporting data transformation, data structures, metadata, dependency and workload management.

  • Experience with data tools like Looker, Tableau, Hadoop, Spark, or Kafka, as well as Google cloud and marketing services like BigQuery, Cloud Functions, Google Tag Manager, and Google Analytics.

  • Experience with data pipeline and workflow management tools: Fivetran, Airbyte, etc.

  • Experience with object-oriented/object function scripting languages like Python
