Job Description

Data-driven decision making has always been important at SeatGeek. Our Business Intelligence team helps drive strategic decision-making by providing meaningful business insights from data.

We’re looking for a Business Intelligence Analyst to join our growing team who can ensure the most relevant information is surfaced to each team to allow for well informed decisions. If you’re a well-rounded, service oriented individual with an advanced SQL skill set who takes pride in using it to provide others with access to actionable data, we’d love to talk with you.

Who you are

You, like many other people today, love mining data, but your understanding of what is relevant and your ability to communicate results in a concise way separates you from the pack. You look forward to open discussions around the “gray” area of business decisions, but aim to narrow that area with data driven insights as much as possible. You take pride in proactively providing data, analysis and findings in a collaborative manner. You also have many of the following:
3 to 5 years of relevant experience, most of which has been spent writing SQL and working with business intelligence platforms. Huge plus if that BI software was Looker.
A degree in Mathematics, Economics, Statistics or another quantitative field.
Highly advanced knowledge of SQL, perhaps with a side of Python or R.
A keen sense of design, both in data architecture and dashboard presentation.
Knowledge of transactional marketplace business model or consumer facing mobile-first products.

What you'll do

Create and maintain world class dashboards, users and models in our BI platform, Looker.
Help drive strategic decision-making through detailed analysis, insights and reporting on key performance indicators (KPIs) and financial results.
Collaborate with departments across the company to understand needs while effectively prioritizing incoming requests.
Deliver visibility into benchmarks across the company’s functions.
Develop automated and complex channel-specific reports.
Collaborate closely with marketing and product teams to continually improve real-time data visibility
Partner with our awesome Data Science team to ensure data integrity.

Perks

Competitive base salary & equity stake in a well-funded growth stage company
$120/mo to spend on live events tickets
A laid-back, awesome workplace with an endless supply of snacks/coffee/beer, frequent team lunches, and team events

Have Questions? Ask Us Anything

What are some of the toughest engineering problems SeatGeek is facing now?
Lots and lots of them, but if I had to pick just a couple to highlight... 1. Event Discovery. What can we build to allow SeatGeek customers to discover the existence of live events they didn't previously know about? Or great deals to those events that they wouldn't have thought possible? A fun mix of machine learning techniques and data engineering gets us there. 2. Consistency. The ticket industry is as balkanized as any industry you'll find. There may be dozens of individual sellers for a popular game; how can we make SeatGeek a consistent interface to all that complexity, so that our customers can get the same good experience for every ticket, for every event in the country? 3. Scale. Every day, we show close to 1 billion ticket listings to our customers, spanning thousands of unique live events. How do we deal with that volume of data and still create a fast, stable, and most importantly *intuitive* experience?

How many people are you hiring in the next year?
The gating factor in our hiring is supply rather than demand. i.e. how many people we hire will depend mostly on how effective we are at recruiting. Gun to my head I'd say ~40 people over the next 12 months, excluding Customer Experience (which will scale with sales volume). But there are relatively wide error bounds around that.
