You are perfect for this role if you have a strong opinion on how to create an accurate, flexible data model and can do it in half the time as your peers.

  • Partner with our Data Engineering team to create new data pipelines to integrate data that comes from our products
  • Proactively identify operational pain points and inefficiencies with cross-functional partners and develop new tools and automated process to solve them


  • You are technically proficient: You have 3+ years as an either a business analyst, data analyst, or data scientist and are fluent in SQL (we use dbt!)
  • You have have experience developing data pipelines using dbt, Airflow, or Fivetran and have learned some best practices along the way for working in a Data Warehouse environment like Redshift, Snowflake, or BigQuery
  • You’ve had a hand in developing a company’s data architecture at a high-growth startup in a way that’s built to last
  • You like to build and enjoy iterating on things quickly.
  • You have a strong bias for action and like to work with high autonomy
  • You are intellectually tenacious and take pride in your work
  • Intellectual tenacity means not being satisfied with the status quo
  • Taking pride in your work means producing something that — if you were the consumer — you’d enthusiastically use
  • You lean into acknowledging your weaknesses and take the idea of feedback and growth seriously
  • You get energy from being a thought partner for others and it excites you to spend time translating operational problems into data problems, and to then going and executing on them
  • U.S. Person status is required as this position needs to access export controlled data
