At Fishtown Analytics, we are committed to hiring and cultivating a diverse team. If you are on the fence about whether you meet our requirements, please apply anyway!


Fishtown Analytics was founded in 2016 to empower analysts to create and disseminate organizational knowledge. Since then, we’ve grown to become one of the most respected brands in the analytics industry. Our product, dbt, is used by thousands of companies and we work with some of the fastest-growing VC-backed startups in the ecosystem today.

We’re looking for an experienced analytics engineer to join our Professional Services team. We help startups set up their initial analytics infrastructure and Fortune 1000 companies migrate to modern analytics tools. The work is challenging, to say the least. In return, you’ll be able to work with one of the most talented data teams on the east coast and with some of the most exciting companies in the world. Sound like something you’re interested in? We’d love to hear from you.

Who we are

Fishtown Analytics was founded in 2016 by three veterans of the analytics software space. While at our last gig, we developed strong opinions on what tools, technologies, and processes companies should use when building their internal data teams. Fishtown Analytics is our shared experiment to put those ideas into practice. Specifically, we believe that:

• Code, rather than graphical user interfaces, is the best tool for defining complex analytical logic.
• Data analysts should adopt similar practices and tools to software developers: version control, testing, multiple environments, and continuous integration.
• Critical analytics infrastructure should be controlled by its users as open-source software.
• Analytic code itself — not just analytics tools — will increasingly be open source.

Who we're looking for

A full stack data analyst with experience working for a venture-backed ecommerce or SaaS startup. You’ll be modeling data using our open source product dbt (getdbt.com), advising CEOs on the analytics behind their businesses, and mentoring analysts who work for our clients and here at Fishtown. A great candidate will be experienced in writing analytic SQL. If you’ve worked in Mode or Looker, Redshift or BigQuery or Snowflake, amazing. If you have experience using the command line and git, we definitely want to talk.

Fishtown Analytics HQ is in the City of Brotherly Love (#cheesesteaks), but for this role, remote is OK.

In this role, you can expect to:

Model and analyze data with lots of SQL
Leverage various data warehouses, ETL tools and BI platforms for client projects
Refactor SQL code based on our best-in-class, in-house style guide
Maintain deliverables, projects, and timelines for your client engagements
Communicate findings clearly to a broad range of stakeholders
Develop and communicate strong opinions about best practices in Analytics Engineering
Interpret trends or patterns in complex data sets and translate them into product, marketing, and financial insights

You are a good fit if you:

• Have worked with dbt before!
• Are proficient in SQL and understand the difference between SQL that works, and SQL that performs
• Have a solid understanding of data warehouses and business intelligence tools
• Have 3+ years experience as a data analyst at an ecommerce or SaaS company
• Can communicate clearly and directly
• Are highly motivated to work autonomously, with strong organizational and time management skills
• Are passionate about building the best version of whatever you’re working on

You have an edge if you:

• Have experience writing analytical Python and/or R
• Have experience with statistical modeling
• Have strong client management experience
