We are looking for a high-performing Data Analyst to join our analytics practice. As an analyst, you will play an integral part of the team and work directly with our clients to provide best-in-class analytics solutions and data-driven insights. This role requires analytical curiosity and strong SQL skills, but is not a DBA or ETL developer role.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Create meaningful business insights out of customer, transactional, and other behavioral data.
  • Conduct both short- and long-term custom analytics projects, design analysis plans, and prepare client deliverables.
  • Query large databases and other data sources using SQL programming languages.
  • Support BI reporting development and CRM targeting efforts.
  • Identify meaningful business insights out of queried data and prepare summary findings for both internal and external stakeholders.
  • Build relationships and communicate regularly with external clients.

Experience & Skills:

  • Excellent data analytic skills. Your analytical thinking is far more important than technical skills
  • Curiosity when analyzing data. Documented history of thinking outside the box and creating novel solutions.
  • Analytic agility. Ability to change analysis direction based on interim findings.
  • Evidence of experience working with multiple, large datasets/warehouses, and ability to integrate and extract from such datasets using relevant programs and coding.
  • Experience using SQL to analyze customer level data, such as POS/transactional or weblog clickstream data.
  • Aptitude for refining informal analytic, reporting or query requirements to help move beyond the simple ask and surface the underlying “why”.
  • Strong Excel skills. Experience and familiarity with a wide variety of Excel functions and features (well beyond pivot tables).

Desired Qualifications:

  • Excellent communication skills. Experience explaining technical findings to non-technical audiences.
  • Experience using programming languages such as R or Python to extract, manipulate, and analyze customer data is a strong plus. 
  • Statistical analysis experience is a plus: regression modeling, decision trees, clustering, etc.
  • BS or MS in Statistics, Computer Science, Mathematics, Applied Economics, Biostatistics or a field involving experimental design, probabilities and quantitative analysis.
  • 1-3 years of relevant experience.
  • Must be authorized to legally work in the United States without restrictions or need for a work visa.
