Through our global marketplace, we connect lifelong learners around the world to the largest selection of online courses created by more than 25,000 expert instructors, and we’re just getting started.

We’re a close-knit bunch that enjoys problem-solving and collaboration, and we share a serious commitment to delivering the best possible learning and teaching experiences. Udemy’s culture encourages innovation, creativity, passion, and teamwork. We also celebrate our milestones and support each other every day.

Founded in 2010, Udemy is privately owned and headquartered in San Francisco’s SOMA neighborhood with international offices in Ankara, Dublin, and Sao Paulo. Compensation includes full-time salary, equity compensation plan, and competitive benefits including healthcare, commuter benefits, parental leave, and an unlimited vacation policy.

We are a small team with a big mission - help anyone learn anything, online. We are looking for folks who are hungry, passionate, smart, fun, scrappy, (we could go on :-)) to help us on this path.

In this role you will work on data problems that inform key business decisions at Udemy - - what is a great course?  what is the right course for each student? How do students navigate our site?  While this role will primarily support the Product Management team, you will be a part of a highly collaborative centralized Analytics team with opportunities to work with and influence all of Udemy.

You will turn ambiguous problems into precise questions, work across teams to extract the relevant data, and communicate results in a clear and effective way. You will be attentive to validating your approach and delivering results that are both actionable and reliable.

Your insights will illuminate the path for the rest of the team and people will seek out your help on the toughest problems. You will also be responsible for mentoring and developing less experienced analysts.

  • Support the Udemy team with business analytics and insights that will drive action
  • Act as a mentor and coach to less experienced analysts
  • Collaborate with people across Udemy to answer key business questions or find untapped opportunities
  • Assist with the design, set-up, and analysis of A/B tests run by the product team
  • Conduct exploratory analyses with methodologies ranging from data mining and visualization to more sophisticated statistical modeling techniques
  • Mine and structure data to prove hypotheses that will guide business decisions and help us understand our students and instructors better
  • Build SQL tables, metrics, and dashboards to track the health of the marketplace and inform business decisions
  • Communicate clearly and effectively to stakeholders with varying business and technical backgrounds
  • Continuously improve the quality and accessibility of our data


  • 3+ years of experience in business analytics or data science at a fast-paced company; consumer facing internet or EdTech business preferred
  • Experience with experiment design and analyzing A/B tests
  • Solid statistical foundation, comfortable with common statistical analysis techniques; familiarity with machine learning techniques is a plus
  • Skilled at extracting, manipulating, and analyzing large data sets using SQL and a statistical language such as R or Python
  • Familiar with advanced visualization tools
  • Structured thinking and the ability to decompose ambiguous questions into discrete data problems
  • Self-starter mentality, a strong sense of ownership, and an insatiable appetite for learning
  • Team-oriented mindset and the ability to work with a wide range of individuals
  • Passion for online education and consumer internet products
