  • Collaborate with product managers and other business leaders to make decisions based on data insights and experiment results.
  • Communicate your findings to cross functional peers and management.

What You’ll Need

  • 3+ yrs of experience in improving products, understanding the user journey and extracting insights from data.
  • Advanced SQL expertise
  • 2yrs+ experience launching multiple experiments (such as A/B experiments) and an understanding of experimental design and using statistical methods in exploratory analysis
  • Experience with dashboarding/data visualization (i.e. Google Data Studio, Tableau, Mixpanel, Looker or similar).
  • Ability to work in a self-guided manner
  • Superb communication and organization skills
  • Stakeholder management experience

Preferred Qualifications

  • Bachelors or M.S. with a degree in Statistics, Economics, Computer Science, or other quantitative fields.
  • Prior experience within the payments industry.
  • Experience using Python or R.
  • Data engineering/pipeline creation experience.
  • Ability to deliver on tight timelines and prioritize tasks while maintaining quality and detail

We welcome people from all backgrounds who seek the opportunity to help build a future where everyone and everything can move independently. If you have the curiosity, passion, and collaborative spirit, work with us, and let’s move the world forward, together.
