  • Creating benchmarks and other aggregate insights that would be of interest to key clients, the press, and other external partners
  • Creating, measuring, and documenting KPIs that will drive focus across the business

  • Ability to create intermediate-level SQL, from scratch, including table joins, subqueries, and basic window functions (rank, row_number, etc.).

  • Experience with one or more data visualization / dashboarding tools, esp. Sisense / Tableau / PowerBI / etc.
  • Ability to construct intermediate level Python or R code to assist with data cleaning, transformation, analysis, or visualization
  • Interest in “both sides” of our business, including how to make the user’s in-app experience better and how to improve service and performance for our advertising clients
  • Ability to translate analytical results to a data-supported story; excellent written and oral communication skills
  • Interest in digital advertising; understanding of advertising principles
  • 2+ Years of experience in a similar role


A Plus If You:

  • Have experience with Google BigQuery or other columnar data store (Vertica, etc.) or “big data” technologies

  • Have experience with common 3rd party event-based analytics packages, such as Google Analytics, Amplitude, or Mixpanel
