We are the company behind WordPress.com, Jetpack, and WooCommerce. We're looking for a Senior Business Intelligence Engineer to join our analytics team. As the data landscape evolves, so do our roles.

As a Senior Business Intelligence Engineer on our team, you will:

  • Design and curate intelligent reporting to identify changes, trends, and risks to the business, incorporating current critical metrics and anomaly detection.
  • Build strong relationships with teams inside and outside our data organization to understand existing needs and find opportunities to use analytics to accelerate business growth.
  • Make our data available: you’ll work to design database models and build ETL pipelines via Airflow.
  • Make our data actionable: you’ll prototype and develop powerful Looker models to create smart dashboards that help our product and business teams succeed.
  • Perform ad hoc analyses to better understand customer behavior, needs, and individual test results.
  • Always be raising data quality. That includes auditing sources, documenting issues, driving resolutions together with other teams, and implementing well-documented, performant, and tested transformations.

We'd love to hear from you if:

  • You're proficient in SQL: window functions and CTEs are part of our daily work.
  • You know and love working on business intelligence solutions: we use Looker as our platform, but experience with a different tool and an ability to learn can go a long way.
  • You care deeply about the user experience when it comes to dashboards and reports and have crafted creative solutions to identify and surface trends, changes, and anomalies in reporting.
  • You have an interest in data science - concepts of causality, experimentation, or applied statistics.
  • You have worked in a Hadoop ecosystem before (in the day to day, we use Impala, Hive, and Spark).
  • You have experience working across teams to deliver analytics solutions and are familiar with common metrics of software as a service (SaaS) business.
  • You have experience managing cross-functional data projects.
  • You have excellent verbal and written communication skills in English.
  • You're able to communicate clearly with and about data to technical and non-technical partners.
  • You're highly collaborative and experienced in working with business owners, executives, developers, and creatives to discuss data, strategy, and tests.
