Data Science & Analytics is one of the fastest growing teams at Betterment. We operate with a 360 degree view of the company, partnering closely with teams such as Finance, Marketing, Product, and Operations, and always with our users in mind. Our projects range from creating beautiful dashboards to developing machine learning models. These projects already add tremendous value to the business...and we’re just getting started!
About the right team member:
Everyone at Betterment is empowered to be an analyst. Throughout the company, teams use data to continuously improve the product and business, and to give customers the best possible experience. At the heart of this data-driven culture is our analytics stack--the tools, dashboards, and reports that allow our colleagues to peer into the data. We are looking for a talented individual, with a passion for both data science and engineering, to lead the efforts to improve that analytics stack and increase the leverage of data throughout the company.
At Betterment you will get to:
Help setup, support, and improve the underlying analytics stack, collaborating closely with the other members of the Data Science & Analytics team, the Data Engineering team, and partner teams around the company.
Help the team respond to ad hoc analytics requests as needed, but more importantly over time translate those requests into tools and metrics that enable everyone at Betterment to be an analyst.
Contribute to Betterment’s data driven culture, and influence best practices.
Be a member of the broader data science community in NYC, staying abreast of new ideas and trends, and contributing thought leadership.
You will be effective if you have:
Experience with analytics tools such as Mode, Looker, or Tableau.
Experience with A/B testing environments.
The ability to develop in Python, R, and D3.
The ability to write SQL in your sleep.
Experience working in a growth stage company, and ability to thrive in a fast moving, ever changing environment.
Entrepreneurship in your nature, with a bias for action instead of waiting for perfection.
