At Segment, we believe companies should be able to send their data wherever they want, whenever they want, with no fuss. We make this easy with a single platform that collects, stores, filters, transforms, and sends data to hundreds of business tools with the flip of a switch. More recently, we also developed the ability to let customers enrich their data in real time using computations they specify. Our goal is to make it easy to understand, extract value, and protect the integrity of data. We are creating a world where engineers spend their time working on their core product, letting us take care of the complexities of processing their customer data reliably at scale. We’re in the running to take over the entire customer data ecosystem, and we need the best people to take the market. 
The Data Analytics role will act as a thought partner to a broad team of stakeholders. This is a foundational role that will empower teams to move faster with making data-based decisions for the business. We’re looking for a high-energy Analyst with high attention to detail, and desire to develop higher-order analytical skills.
Recent examples of our projects include:
  • Improved Gross Margin by identifying key drivers of infrastructure cost, segmenting customers based by their Gross Margin and developing initiatives to address infrastructure cost overspent
  • Streamlined incident handling by building automated dashboard to generate email list of affected customers; this saved hours of Engineering and Analytics time per incident
  • Supported Customer Happiness initiatives by defining SLA (Service Level Agreement) metrics, developing data pipeline to incorporate business logic in metrics calculation and operationalizing seamless report updates and delivery

What you’ll do:

  • Define relevant metrics for internal teams and develop tools and dashboards to make these metrics widely accessible and used across the organization
  • Formulate insights to drive improvements in product, process, and approach based on in-depth data analysis
  • Build and maintain data visualizations that empower decision-making across all Segment teams
  • Perform ad hoc analyses of varying depth to support strategic initiatives and answer questions arising in the day to day business

You’re a great fit if you…

  • You have 2+ years of experience in Analytics at a growth stage startup AND/OR experience in premier management consulting, PE/venture, or investment banking
  • You have validated experience writing queries
  • You have working knowledge of statistical methods
  • You have experience using data visualization tools to convey quantitative results clearly

Bonus Points: 

  • Degree in Statistics, Mathematics, Operations Research, CS, Econometric or related field
  • Experience with Salesforce and marketing tools

About Segment

About us Segment is a fast-growing startup building a platform for collecting customer data. We provide a single API to track customer data across multiple devices and channels, and send it to third-party tools, internal systems, or a SQL database with the flip of a switch. Segment eliminates the need to write code to integrate new tools, which saves time and removes dependencies across teammates. By consolidating tracking to one API, Segment sends consistent, complete data to every tool and database where companies need to use it. Segment is small, so everyone has a huge impact. With just a handful of people, we’re already processing billions of API calls every month. We love open sourcing our code and writing down everything we’ve learned. If you want to make an impact, and are excited about how data can change organizations, we want you.
