Job Description

We are UMG, the Universal Music Group. We are the world’s leading music company. In everything we do, we are committed to artistry, innovation and entrepreneurship. We own and operate a broad array of businesses engaged in recorded music, music publishing, merchandising, and audiovisual content in more than 60 countries. We identify and develop recording artists and songwriters, and we produce, distribute and promote the most critically acclaimed and commercially successful music to delight and entertain fans around the world.
 

How we LEAD:

Merchandise and commerce are part of the fabric of music culture. For artists, it’s a way to develop and further articulate their brand. For fans, it’s another pathway to connecting with an artist and the culture they represent.

 

Fame House, UMG’s US eCommerce division, is looking for a data and insights analyst to join our team: someone passionate about using data to drive strategy in a creative and quickly changing industry. The ideal candidate brings a skillset that balances technical acumen with strong communication and an ability to turn open-ended problems into plans of action.

 

How you’ll CREATE:

  • Influence eCommerce strategy and operations as a key thought partner, delivering compelling visual presentations to a range of stakeholders, including executive leaders, label teams, artist managers, and operational partners.
  • Help develop our analytic toolkit by providing key input & feedback into building frameworks, dashboards, and templates to scale up impact.
  • Provide ongoing support for deployed solutions, including training stakeholders to self-serve and improve data-driven decision-making across the organization.
  • Shift between data sources and tools for different projects, which may include BigQuery, Data Studio, Tableau, Domo, Python, Google Analytics, Excel, and other in-house data structures.
  • Own the entire end to end delivery of specific reporting & analysis deliverables, from requirement gathering to deployment, with quality documentation and communication.
  • Partner with tech and data science teams to improve upstream data solutions.

Bring your VIBE:

  • Bachelor’s Degree – economics, business, data engineering, computer science, or statistics majors preferred.
  • 2+ years of direct experience in analytics, data science, data engineering, finance, consulting, or digital marketing. A commensurate graduate degree can also be sufficient.
  • A strong critical-thinker who can communicate effectively with different audiences.
  • Advanced skills in SQL, data visualization software (e.g. Tableau) and Excel. Experience with eCommerce/marketing analytics systems (e.g. Shopify/Google Analytics) and programming languages (e.g. Python) is a plus.
  • Must be comfortable crafting actionable stories from large sets of data and conducting data mining, validation and root cause analysis along the way to ensure accuracy.
  • Exceptionally detail-oriented with polished written and verbal communication skills.
  • A seasoned team player, accustomed to managing multiple projects with separate clients and deadlines.
  • Experience in eCommerce, merchandising and/or entertainment industries is preferred.
  • Experience with project management and collaboration tools a plus (e.g. Monday.com).
  • Flexible and able to adapt to changing project needs in a fast-paced environment; extremely reliable for meeting deadlines.
  • Extremely organized and comfortable streamlining many moving parts. Comfortable juggling multiple high priority projects simultaneously.
