At Fishtown Analytics, our mission is to explore, facilitate, and promote the effective practice of analytics. Our clients include some of the highest growth venture-funded companies today, and we help them solve their biggest data challenges.

We’re looking for an analytics engineer to join our team. While we certainly are looking for someone with strong math skills, what’s even more important are your soft skills and eagerness to learn.

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

Someone comfortable with vlookups and countifs in Excel who is ready to take their data skills to the next level. You’ll be creating models and visualizations to answer questions our clients ask. You need to be excited to learn SQL and interested in understanding how ecommerce and SaaS companies function and thrive. Never heard of the term "analytics engineer"?

We pair on client projects to fast track learnings and to help manage your projects, deadlines, client relationships, scoping, and execution. You will work collaboratively to think through solutions. We’ll help you get your feet under you by providing industry best-practices and guidance.

This role is based in Philadelphia, PA.

In this role, you can expect to:

• Analyze data using lots of SQL
• Interpret trends or patterns in complex data sets and translate these insights into product, marketing, and financial decisions
• Leverage various data warehouses, ETL tools and BI platforms for client projects
• Maintain deliverables, projects, and timelines for your client engagements
• Communicate findings clearly to a broad range of stakeholders

You are a good fit if you:

• Are proficient in Excel
• Have strong organizational and time management skills
• 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 one year of experience in an analytics role
• Have exposure to SQL, databases, and/or business intelligence tools

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!
