Remote Senior Data Analyst
Whimsical is an end-to-end SaaS platform for shaping ideas. Our software enables thousands of customers-from individuals to Fortune 500-to think and collaborate in the new era of distributed work.
We're now looking for a Senior Data Analyst to take part in our efforts to build tools that make online work better.
About The Role
As a Senior Data Analyst, you will help us understand the world of Whimsical. Data is at the core of all major decisions at Whimsical, and therefore you will be at the epicenter of the company, taking part in many different projects. You'll mostly work with our Product, Growth, and Go-To-Market teams, but sometimes also with Finance, Customer Experience, and HR.
You will be reporting to our Lead Data Analyst, Paul Koch. Your responsibilities include:
- Analyze and explain complex business problems and issues using data from internal and external sources to provide insight to decision-makers.
- Identify and understand trends in our big datasets.
- Construct forecasts, recommendations, strategies, and tactical plans based on our data and market knowledge.
- Create ad-hoc reports and key dashboards when needed by the business.
- Explore our data, tell stories, and educate us on all the things we are missing.
- Work together with Product Managers, leadership, and other stakeholders in the organization on per-project based data explorations and tasks.
Your first quarter at Whimsical
At the end of your first quarter at Whimsical you will:
- Feel at home, getting to know the awesome people here and learning how we work
- Also feel comfortable with our vast data sets and sources
- Understand the core flows of our product and what data they produce
- Understand our business model and the core commercial numbers
- Participate in your first few projects where the data you have delivered is at its core
- Have taught Niklas (our VP of Product) some SQL.
We're looking for someone with a proven track record as a data analyst in rapidly growing SaaS companies. You:
- Have worked as a data analyst for 5+ years.
- Have applied statistical techniques and used analytical programming languages in a professional context.
- Can cite examples of how your analysis has influenced business outcomes.
- Communicate your findings so that non-data people can understand the value of what the data shows us.
- Understand how to work with data in the context of a product organization.
- Enjoy with the fast-paced, ambiguous environment of a start-up.
