Senior Data Scientists at WooCommerce sit at the intersection of marketing, product, and data science. They work closely with marketers and engineers to turn the available data into analyses, insights, and hypotheses that can:

  • increase activation and reduce churn through improved customer messaging and product placement across the customer lifecycle.
  • reduce the time it takes to make decisions across Marketing, Sales, and Product teams thanks to improved analytical capabilities.
  • increase Marketplace revenue through tailored product bundles and personalization.

In this role, you will use customer and product data across multiple channels to identify target audiences for tailored messaging, design and evaluate experiments to measure the incremental lift of marketing activities, and perform ad hoc analyses, such as predictive modeling, time series modeling and classification, to measure impact and inform business decisions.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Own marketing performance data as a whole across all channels, ensuring that metrics are consistent and our measurement is robust.
  • Analyze channel and product data to uncover meaningful insights and opportunities that lead to growth.
  • Design and analyze marketing growth experiments in collaboration with the team.
  • Validate tracking and data collection to ensure accuracy and consistency.
  • Empower the team to make effective decisions using data through internal tooling, dashboards, funnels and other reporting.

You:

  • Have at least 5 years of experience in a similar role.
  • Are a robust, proactive communicator comfortable with managing multiple priorities.
  • Have extensive experience measuring incrementality, including designing and running A/B and multivariate tests.
  • Have excellent quantitative research skills and experience applying statistical modeling, clustering, classification, and other analytical techniques in a business context.
  • Deeply understand business drivers to craft automated, easy to use reports and data visualizations in our BI tool (we use Looker).
  • Are a hands-on contributor and implementer, with proficiency in SQL.
  • Have programming experience with Python, R, or PHP.
  • Have experience using agile development tools (e.g., GitHub, Trello).
  • Have experience with data integration, connectors, and related APIs.
  • Have a deep knowledge of digital marketing concepts, channels, strategies, and related data outputs (including web analytics).
