About the Role:
We are seeking a highly analytical and creative individual to help us understand our customers and our business through data. You will have the opportunity to dig into data to better understand how customers use our product, and you will work closely with teams across the company to build your findings into automated models and reports that improve our product and internal operations.
We are a small, fast-moving team that supports high-impact company initiatives and projects that inform business strategy. We’re looking for someone who thrives in a fast-paced environment, excels at tackling ambiguous problems with logical and structured thinking, and is eager to learn and apply new techniques to solve whatever challenges arise.

- Proactively identify opportunities to use automated data models to improve our product and impact different areas of the business.
- Partner with other teams to create tools, reports, or product features that allow learnings or recommendations from the data to support both internal and customer decisions.
- Work with internal stakeholders to refine and teach the use of tools you have built, and present findings to a wide range of colleagues, from data scientists to executives.
- Automate, streamline, and document new and existing data processes to make them widely reusable.
Other duties, responsibilities and activities may change or be assigned at any time with or without notice.
You may be the right fit if you have:
- Excellent quantitative, data modeling, and statistics skills. Graduate degree in a quantitative or medical field (e.g. Economics, Statistics, Math, Operations Research, Engineering, Physics etc.) preferred; experience with advanced modeling techniques highly desirable.
- 1-5 years experience working with data in an analytical role.
