At Fishtown Analytics, our mission is to empower analysts to create and disseminate organizational knowledge. Our product, dbt, is used and loved by thousands of companies with more joining every day. We’re looking for an events manager to host an event lineup that serves the existing dbt community and brings new folks into the community.

Today, our events lineup includes in-person training and Meetups. In 2020, we’ll be adding our first user conference as well as speaking and sponsorships at relevant trade shows. This role will start out intensely hands-on, but as our event lineup grows, you’ll begin to build a team of people that bring the dbt brand to life in-person.

Who we are

At Fishtown Analytics, we have developed strong opinions on how companies should practice analytics.

Specifically, we believe that:
--> Code, not graphical user interfaces, is the best abstraction to express complex analytic logic
--> Data analysts should adopt similar practices and tools to software developers
--> 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

It turns out that a lot of other people believe this too! Over the course of the past several years we've built a community of 4,000+ people and 1,300 companies who are using our ideas, products, and workflows to conduct analytics, including Lyft, Monzo, GitLab, Snowflake, the ACLU, Amazon, JetBlue, and RentTheRunway. Our product, dbt (https://www.getdbt.com/), has come to be synonymous with the practice of analytics engineering, defining an entire industry.

We’re on a mission to empower analysts to create and disseminate organizational knowledge. If this sounds like a mission you could get behind, we're excited to get your help to continue to power this growth into the future.

You’ll be modeling data using our open source product dbt, advising CEOs on the analytics behind their businesses, and mentoring analysts who work for our clients and here at Fishtown.
