  • You will collaborate with data scientists and engineers to identify data sources, devise data-quality checks, and build scalable reports, so you can ensure data integrity and consistency  and flag and troubleshoot data-quality issues

What we’re looking for:

  • Strong experience with analytical SQL (ideally BigQuery, Snowflake, AWS Athena, or similar).
  • Advanced user of Excel, and adept at handling large datasets.
  • Hands-on experience with self-service product-analytics tools (e.g., Looker, Mixpanel, Amplitude, Heap).
  • Regular user of a programming language typically used for data analysis (ideally Python).
  • Strong experience in data visualization techniques using the above tools.
  • 5+ years of experience in roles requiring data organization and analytical rigor (e.g. Analytics, Business Operations, Consulting, Finance, etc.)
  • Ability to analyze unstructured data and extract insights to provide business recommendations
  • High standards of accuracy with unquestionable integrity
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Excellent decision-making and creative problem-solving skills
  • Motivated to define BI process, build documentation, and disseminate best practices
  • Knowledge of SaaS business metrics and models
  • Passion for uncovering levers and growing the business through financial analysis
  • Extreme attention to detail, organized, and resourceful

Nice to haves:

  • There are no specific degree requirements for this role: we appreciate and seek out diverse backgrounds. Instead of any particular formal education or years-of-experience requirements, we’ll flesh out what you’ve built, what you know, and how you approach problem solving.
  • As a company that serves musicians and producers, some knowledge of the music-production process is an asset. If this topic is new to you that’s okay, you should be open to learning about it.
