Sawyer is seeking a Data Analyst to lead key analytics initiatives, with a focus on insights and reporting for our marketing and product teams. This is an opportunity to join an innovative, mission-driven organization as an early member of the Data team. The role is ideal for someone with analytical experience who has not necessarily worked on a data team in the past.

It’s an exciting time to work on data at Sawyer. We’re building a foundation of robust, scalable technology to power analytics and data products for the two sides of our business — our SaaS platform for educational activity providers and our marketplace for parents. In addition, we’re investing in tools, processes, and culture to democratize insights and empower critical decision-making across the organization.

There’s a lot of foundational work to do, so this is an ideal role for someone who is excited to build things from the ground up while digging deep into a variety of data challenges. As a result, you’ll make a direct impact on an early-stage startup that’s working to give each child the opportunity to discover their own love of learning.

About the Role

  • Act as a data partner for our marketing and product teams, providing both day-to-day support and longer-term strategic analyses
  • Collaborate with the product and marketing teams to design metrics, build funnels, and strategize how to measure the success of projects
  • Build and maintain key company dashboards, self-service reporting tools, and the data models that support them
  • Work with people across the organization to conduct analyses and support decision-making

About You

  • 2+ years of professional experience in a quantitative or analytical role
  • Proficient writing SQL to query relational databases (we use Postgres and Redshift)
  • Hands-on experience working with a programming language like Python or R to conduct business analyses
  • Comfortable using Excel to explore data and communicate your findings
  • Experience designing reports and dashboards in a data visualization or business intelligence tool
  • Skilled communicator and collaborator, and experience working with a variety of stakeholders
  • Curious about how things work and eager to use that curiosity to solve challenging problems


  • Experience with dbt and/or Airflow
  • Experience analyzing Google AdWords and Facebook ad data

How to Apply

To be considered for the role, please write a note telling us about yourself and why you’re interested in Sawyer. In addition, please include a response to the following two questions:

Imagine a database table named activities. It has three columns:

  • activity_id [int, non null]
  • activity_provider_id [int, non null]
  • area_id [int, nullable]
  • starts_at [timestamp, non null]
  1. Write a SQL query (any dialect) that counts the number of activities that occur per month per area_id. Limit the results to the last 12 months. Note that starts_at is a timestamp like ‘2020-07-01 12:30:00’.
  2. Given the following query, which counts would you expect to return the highest and lowest values? Which counts would you expect to be the same? Why?

count(distinct activity_provider_id),
count(distinct area_id),
from activities
