What You’ll Do:

  • Partner with product teams to advise on product direction and strategy, roadmaps, feature prioritization, metrics and goals, feature prioritization, and user journeys, and to accelerate decision making.
  • Lead advanced, ad-hoc analytics projects to understand user behavior and long-term trends to identify opportunities for improving user acquisition, engagement, experience, value, and retention
  • Define core product and feature metrics and develop reporting and self-serve experiences in Looker and Amplitude to guarantee consistent and efficient access to these metrics
  • Collaborate with Product, Engineering, and Analytics Engineering to ensure proper tracking and instrumentation of new product initiatives and features
  • Play a foundational role in building a data culture at Flexport by defining standards and practices for how product groups work with data and providing a strong voice for a data-informed point of view
  • Manage the design, implementation, and evaluation of experiments and develop and socialize a rigorous culture of experimentation across all product teams
  • Collaborate with UX research to design and evaluate surveys and surface quantitative insights on customer experience
  • Collaborate cross-functionally with sister analytics teams at Flexport to share best practices, insights and innovations

Preferred Tech Stack

  • Languages: SQL (Snowflake), Python
  • BI: Looker, Snowsight
  • Transformation: dbt
  • Instrumentation: Amplitude, Snowplow
  • Orchestration: Airflow

What You’ll Need:

  • 8+ years previous experience as a data scientist, data analyst, or data engineer
  • Demonstrated experience with modern BI Tools: Looker (preferred), Tableau, Power BI, Mode, Sisense, or Superset
  • Experience with data transformation and orchestration tooling (dbt strongly preferred)
  • Expert-level SQL and familiarity with a scientific programming language, such as R or Python.
  • Extensive experience with event-tracking tools like Amplitude (preferred), Mixpanel, Heap, and Snowplow, with proven experience in defining and managing the implementation and governance of these tools
  • Experience presenting findings to business partners across the organization, including executive leadership
  • Solid understanding of customer-centric digital product analysis
  • Experience with schema design and dimensional data modeling.
  • A foundational understanding of statistical techniques such as regression, predictive modeling, forecasting, time series analysis, and clustering and apply those to answer business needs

What you’re like:

  • Laser focused on impact, balancing effort to value, and getting things done.
  • Charismatic storyteller ready to lead growth conversations with senior leadership.
  • Highly productive: Work independently on a day-to-day basis. This role is intended for somebody who will take meaningful responsibility and initiative for our business metrics.
  • Structured thinker: Understand the key drivers to our business and identify how to modify them to improve business metrics.
  • Consumer-first and positive thinker: You're motivated to work hard in a fast-paced environment – business decisions here can connect and impact millions of users.
  • Expert multi-tasker and prioritizer: Experience (and preferably an enjoyment of) balancing numerous different priorities and demands.
  • Positive and adaptable: Demonstrates flexibility and constructive attitude in face of shifting business needs and personal responsibilities.
  • Seasoned analyst: We’re looking to add a senior individual contributor leader to our team, ready to mentor junior analysts. #LI-LB1
