Full time

Employment Information

The position you were interested in has been filled or expired, but we invite you to explore other exciting job openings on our platform to find your next career opportunity.

Loop is in an unparalleled position to provide data to our merchants that no one else can replicate. Data will be at the core of everything we do and some of our most critical work as we grow. Our future is to create data-based products that use modern techniques to deliver data and invaluable insights. We’re establishing the conditions to allow anyone to answer most of their business questions independently, and you’ll contribute to the frameworks and culture that reward the effective utilization of data across the organization.

The Data Team is part of the Engineering department and is responsible for analytics, data platforms and data engineering, and data science. Our work mainly involves:

  • Building enterprise-wide data models for on-demand, tactical, strategic, and self-service data analysis
  • Maintaining, updating, and expanding the data platform
  • Developing data products
  • Conducting advanced analytics initiatives for internal and external users

As part of the Data Team, the Analytics Team works in a hybrid operational model performing analyses for specific business functions such as Marketing, Merchant Success, Product, and Finance. The data used in this work comes from dbt models curated by the Analytics Engineering team, and depending on scope, recurrence, and audience, results are usually shared using either Hex or Looker.

As a Data Scientist at Loop, you’ll significantly impact our ability to solve merchant problems and fulfill merchant needs. Your work interpreting and synthesizing large-scale data and outputs will guide business decisions made by internal stakeholders at all levels. You will be successful in this role if you’re self-motivated and can run projects independently while collaborating with team members and business stakeholders. Success in this role also includes partnering with stakeholders and deep diving into business problems while simplifying and communicating complex analyses into easily accessible and impactful terms in written and verbal formats.

Loop HQ is a state-of-the-art office located in Columbus, Ohio, and more than half of our team works remotely across the United States and Canada. You can join us in the Columbus office or stay fully remote in this role.

In a perfect world, Loop wouldn’t exist. If we had our way, we’d live in a world where we’re mindful about how we consume, we love every product we own, and we share values with the brands who create them. In reality, commerce isn’t perfect and often breaks. Loop creates second chances.

We’re starting by revolutionizing the post-purchase experience. We’ve taken one of the most fragile commerce interactions - returns - and turned it into something consumers actually love, and that deepens our connection to brands and products.

We take connection seriously on the inside, too. We’re building a work experience that allows you to Be A Human First and prioritizes empathy and wellbeing. We view Loop as a special place in your career to shape the future of an industry and become a better person while doing it. You can grow faster here in a shorter amount of time - we’ll give you space and trust you to fill it.
