About the right team member:
At Betterment, there is nothing more important than building the best product we possibly can for our customers. Data plays a central role in how we decide what to build, how we design the customer experience, and how we monitor the performance and adoption of our products. We are looking for a talented product analyst to support these efforts. Betterment is in a growth stage and our product team’s analytics needs are fairly broad, so the work is bound to stay interesting. At any one time, projects may include working with product squads to interpret results of our A/B tests, study customer behavior, design OKRs to measure product performance, build interactive dashboards to track key metrics, and assist in fulfilling ad-hoc data requests from the product and design teams.
At Betterment you will get to:
- Partner closely with cross functional teams of product managers, engineers and designers to refine the user experience and discover opportunities for product improvements.
- Create impactful quantitative reports, dashboards and insights to provide our product team with critical information to support our decision-making process.
- Understand how customers use our product, influence the product roadmap and help monitor feature performance.
- Support ad hoc analysis requests as needed, but over time translate them into tools and metrics.
- Assist with the design, set-up and analysis of A/B tests to drive iterative improvement through efficient experimentation.
- 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:
- 2+ years experience working in data analytics, finance or consulting.

- Experience with Python or R, along with a desire to become an expert.
- Comfort with working with large datasets.
