Currently we're using Segment, Stitch, Mode and Amplitude. It's your job to take us to the next level. As the first dedicated member of the data team, you’ll have a key role in shaping our data tech stack.

Work with team members in non-technical roles to understand their data-related challenges and ensure they have the right data available.
Promote software engineering best practices such as version control and continuous integration to an analytics codebase.

Deep down...
You’re genuinely excited about a collaborative role and building tools to support a new data team. You want the team to be successful.
You embrace taking on varied responsibilities, especially in an early stage environment.
Doing things better motivates you. We’re looking for someone who can point out inefficiencies and say “I can build something better”.

You have a curiosity for defining analytical problems and finding innovative solutions with data.
