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. If you are excited about using your quantitative and data expertise to help support informed and confident decisions, join us to have an immediate impact on a fast-growing team.

In this role you will: 

  • Use statistical and predictive modeling techniques to explore data, create and clean datasets, perform deep dive analyses, and answer key business questions.
  • 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.
  • Experience with SQL and a scripting language such as python or R.
  • Demonstrated experience working in a self-directed manner and driving data projects from inception to completion.
  • Excellent communication and writing skills; ability to work effectively with and explain complex modeling approaches to both technical and non-technical collaborators.
  • Business acumen, customer focus, and a knack for building practical, iterative solutions.
  • Experience with natural language processing is a plus.
  • Experience with e-commerce or web analytics is a plus.

An Insider's view of RealSelf

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

Amy

Sr. Recruiter

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

We're increasing trust on our platform in a time where people are less trustful of what they read online. Our goal is to give everyone the information they need to make strong, confident decisions about their medical care.

Sharon

Lead Trust & Safety Program Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

Goal-tracking tools and resources at RealSelf keep me accountable and focused on results. The mentorship program and professional development grant also allowed me to learn new skills I can apply to my role. But nothing beats the amazing people at RealSelf–my manager truly cares about how I'm growing and how best she can support my ideas.

Geri

Sr. Community Manager

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Our People Team strives to support the understanding that work life balance should no longer be considered a benefit, but should be an expectation of a company. Not only do we stand behind this, we have recently created more opportunities for our people to work remote so that they can better balance life whether in or out of the office.

Craig

Sr. Director of People

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

As Marketing Copywriter, I’ve got the unique privilege of partnering across our Email, Product, and Brand teams to help drive marketing initiatives forward. Each day I use the power of language to connect with our audience in interesting and impactful ways. Collaborating with such bright colleagues is a fun, challenging, and exhilarating experience
