Rarefied talent in data science, data technology, and analytics

Data Analyst


Job Description

Hi, I'm Will, Head of Analytics and Strategic Finance at Customer.io, and I'm looking for a new data analyst/analytics engineer to join our team!

As the third member of our Analytics team, we'll work together to curate our data, uncover insights, and create dashboards. By helping stakeholders across our team understand how each element of the business is operating, you'll help us move smarter and faster.

You'll be a consultant and trusted advisor to folks across our Finance, Operations, Product, Marketing, Sales and Customers Teams. While data helps inform many decisions at Customer.io, it’s one factor alongside other things like customer research, our experience, and intuition. You won’t find us running experiments to figure out which of 50 shades of blue is the best one for a button color! You'll be helping us make decisions that matter.

A bit about how we work...

We get data into our Snowflake warehouse though a mix of scalable SaaS tools (Stitch, Segment) and engineering-managed data pipelines for data generated by our App. We curate that raw data into an analytics layer using dbt and then build charts and dashboards using Sigma and Mode. Sometimes we'll take that data into Sheets to build a forecast or pipe it into a tool like Sisu for more exploration. We're always interested in exploring new ways to unearth insights.

As our new Data Analyst, you will...

  • Help our Sales Development team understand which prospective customers are most likely to convert.
  • Help our Product team understand how our new EU datacenter impacts customer demographics.
  • Help our Customers team understand the value of Customer Success Managers.
  • Help our Technical Support team build a hiring forecast.

You are...

  • An independent problem-solver, but aren’t afraid to ask for help or collaboration when you need to.
  • Curious, inquisitive, and constantly seeking to understand how things work.
  • Capable of digging through the weeds to find a nugget of insight, but willing to step back before you've lost a week to a fruitless search.
  • Empathetic and able to put yourself into the shoes of your stakeholders to better understand what they care about and help them answer the questions they may not yet know they need to ask.
  • You know how to build and maintain clean, intuitive datasets that will enable you to answer new questions quickly and accurately.
  • A strong communicator - particularly in written form since clear writing will be important to sharing your insights with others across our distributed team.
  • Based in UTC -4 to -7 (North or South America) to maximize working hours overlap.

What we're looking for

  • An experienced analyst who has worked across multiple functions and/or companies, even if you didn't have a "data analyst" title.
  • An exceptional story-teller who can communicate complex analyses in digestible ways to a non-technical audience.
  • Someone who will help business leaders see around corners and drive impactful change to the business.
  • Fluency in SQL to query and (bonus!) dbt to transform data.

Ideally, but not required...

  • You’ve used tools in our stack like: DBT, Snowflake, Mode, Sigma, Stitch Data, Segment, Sisu.
  • You've worked with Product Analytics tools like Mixpanel and Amplitude.
  • You’ve worked with data from CRM tools like Close.io
  • You’ve worked with data from payment applications like Stripe

  • Flexible schedule, work anywhere you want! - as long as you have a reliable internet connection and some overlapping work time with your manager, you can work where and when you want

All final candidates will be asked to complete an employment and education verification authorization form (which allows us to verify your job history and education listed on your resume) as part of our pre-employment process.

Customer.io recognizes the stifling impact of systemic injustice on diverse communities. We commit to using our influence to increase inclusion and equity within the tech industry. We strive to build an inclusive team culture, implement bias-free hiring practices, and develop community partnerships to expand our global impact.
