This role is perfect for you if you’re process-oriented, collaborative, and passionate about using data to drive the business forward. If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you!

What you’ll do

  • Data Extraction:
    • Collaborate with stakeholders across the organization to identify and connect data sources to our data warehouse to automate extraction

  • Our team is made up of friendly, funny, welcoming, low-ego, and passionate people -- who also happen to be great at what they do. We all know the people you work with can make or break a job and so we go to great lengths to protect this amazing culture.
  • We work hard, but are well-rounded (and well-rested). Hanging with coworkers is encouraged. So is taking vacation (we’ve got a $1k vacation bonus), getting out of here at a reasonable hour, year-long Summer Fridays, and obviously getting a great night sleep (our day starts at 10am).
  • Care about growth? So do we. We’re growing rapidly, so we’ve got tons of exciting growth opportunities for our amazingly talented team. Not the type of place where you wait for your boss to quit before you can get promoted. New projects and business needs pop up every single day, and we always look internally first.
  • All the other stuff you’d expect - great benefits (with fully company-paid options), a 401k plan with a 4% match, 100% paid parental leave for ALL new parents, budget for learning and development, fun team outings, and much more.
  • And don’t just take our word for it! We’re honored to be recognized by various industry tastemakers for the work we’ve put into our culture and employee engagement, including accolades from LinkedIn Top Startups (in 2020 and 2021!) and Inc.’s Best Workplaces.

Everyone is welcome at Brooklinen - we’re passionate about building a team that reflects the diversity of our community and creating an environment where our differences are celebrated. We invite you to take a look at how we’ve done so far and where we know we need to do better.
