Business Operations Analyst

| Bellevue

From the very beginning, OfferUp has believed that the right people united by the right mission can redefine the possible.

OfferUp is now the largest mobile marketplace for local buyers and sellers in the US. We connect millions of people every day, but we’re still as committed as ever to the founding mission: to build the simplest, most trustworthy local marketplace. We help bring people together in their communities to exchange value, and we think that exchange is the foundation for a kind of commerce that redefines what “value” really means. In our world, the things we buy and sell are just the primer for the really important stuff, like meeting our neighbors, getting more connected to the places we live and the things that live with us, and creating a marketplace where everyone has something to offer.

We are currently seeking an experienced analyst to join the BizOps team and support data-driven decision making across all areas of the company.

What You’ll Do

  • Measure and report on the effectiveness of growth initiatives
  • Define metrics and create automated dashboards to support a measure of self-service insights for new business initiatives and features

What You’ll Need

  • Analytic Skills. Highly proficient with Excel and SQL, and familiarity with basic statistical concepts are prerequisites. Bonus points if you have Looker, Tableau, or similar data visualization tools knowledge.
  • Insane business curiosity. Skilled at breaking down complex business, product, or policy questions from all possible angles to garner key insights. You enjoy using data to answer challenging questions that inform key business decisions.
  • Self-starter with strong work ethic. You thrive in a fast-paced environment, with the ability to multitask and juggle multiple projects with shifting priorities. You are scrappy and resourceful; you know how to do more with less.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills. You can synthesize complex analytic results, present key findings in compelling visual formats, and communicate them effectively to a broad audience.
  • BA/BS degree in Economics, Business, Engineering, Statistics, Computer Science, Mathematics or related field strongly preferred.
  • 3+ years of relevant experience working with real-world data.
  • Prior experience at a fast-paced technology company preferred.

An Insider's view of OfferUp

What's something quirky about your company?

This may seem silly, but we have a 90lb MMA dummy our CEO bought and named Pat. On a daily basis, someone will take Pat and figure out creative ways to scare some folks in the office. How do I know? I am Pat.

What does your typical day look like?

One of the great things about OfferUp is that no two days look the same. The only thing you will see me do every day at the same time is plank at 3 p.m. with my team. Otherwise, who knows?

Software Development Engineer

What makes someone successful on your team?

Like many engineers, one of my favorite parts of being in tech is using my creativity and logic to create something new, especially here at OfferUp where what we create has the ability to help the environment and enable people to support their own businesses.

What is your vision for the company?

OfferUp will continue to be the premier local mobile marketplace for buying and selling, but there will likely be more and better e-commerce opportunities with the onset of new delivery technologies. OfferUp has such unique purpose and is leading the transformation of how consumers buy and sell locally. I'm delighted to be a part of the team.

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Work/life balance is fantastic at OfferUp, especially for a startup! Sure, there are some days you may need to stay late- but everyone is pitching in here and understands the importance of recharging and resetting.
