Senior Manager, Analytics

At Cogo Labs, we build startup companies from scratch.

We're not venture capitalists - we're a collaborative team of engineers, analysts, and entrepreneurs using innovative tools, big data, and intellectual curiosity to build a platform that spins up successful online businesses, fast. 

As a Cogo Labs Senior Manager, you will lead teams of analysts and managers against Cogo’s biggest, most complicated projects. You’ll be entrusted with projects tied directly to launching and accelerating ventures, expanding the ways we can drive investments and do business, and generating operational revenue. People at Cogo who fill this role have been responsible for managing everything from discovering new audiences and customer bases to building new ways to connect our ventures to those audiences. These leaders have even pivoted to lead some of the very ventures we incubate.

You will be counted on for bias for action, self-reliability in problem solving, and your proven ability for organization of, planning for, and execution to success of previous efforts. 

What to expect from Cogo:

  • Near obsessive use of data to inform business decisions. We believe that efficient growth happens when we make every decision based on solid, well directed analysis.
  • Unmatched opportunity. We believe in mentoring people to grow as quickly as they can. Today's new grad hires are tomorrow's leaders.
  • Flexibility and novelty. Your role will define itself over time, as you identify the problems that you are uniquely capable of solving.
  • A fun, supportive culture. Happy employees are the most successful. We take care of our own, and not just because it's good business.

About you:

  • You hold a Bachelor's degree in a field that requires deep analytical thinking and problem solving. Many of us have Math, Econ, Finance, or Engineering backgrounds, but applications from all quantitative fields are welcome
  • You’ve accrued 8-12 years of professional experience in data-focused roles – even better if you’ve spent time in internet companies
  • You have at least 3 years of experience managing and motivating diverse, cross-functional project teams and achieving success with them
  • You have experience in mentoring and developing a team of technical analysts and managers
  • You have the ability to bridge the gap between what you do and the rest of the business, and have mastered the ability to communicate it
  • You are able to turn complex data into actionable insights and recommendations to a variety of stakeholders 

You exhibit the following principles:

  1. Take Big Swings
    Thinking small is a self-fulfilling prophecy. Leaders strive to spend their time exclusively on what’s important, and they shed the rest. They seek out the highest return on their team’s time and effort.
  2. Data Driven
    Leaders work backwards from the solution to generate plans. They use data to be sure their time and effort are always leveraged at the most impactful work. They admit when they are wrong and use the data to eliminate their blind spots.
  3. Make Moonshine
    Leaders create value from spare and under-utilized parts. They’re resourceful and tenacious. They expect and require innovation and invention from their teams, and they find ways to simplify. They are situationally aware; they look for good ideas from anywhere.
  4. Insist on the Highest Standards
    Leaders keep the standards relentlessly high. They demand high quality products, services, and processes because they deliver high quality products, services, and processes. Leaders solve root problems and ensure that when problems get fixed, they stay fixed.
  5. Bias for Action
    Leaders run everywhere they go. Many decisions and actions are reversible and don’t need extensive study. Leaders value calculated risk taking because they know that in business, speed wins.
  6. Have Integrity; Earn Trust
    Leaders listen attentively, speak candidly, and treat others respectfully. They are vocally self-critical, even when doing so is difficult or embarrassing. Leaders are not arrogant. They benchmark themselves against the best and identify their gaps.
  7. Hire and Develop the Best
    Leaders raise the bar with every hire and promotion. They want to work with other leaders. They recognize exceptional talent and enthusiastically propel them throughout the organization. Leaders are serious about their role in coaching others.
  8. Ownership
    Leaders think long-term and don’t sacrifice long-term value for short-term results. They own all the inputs to their business. They act on behalf of the entire company, beyond just their own team.
  9. Disagree and Commit
    Leaders respectfully challenge decisions when they disagree, even when doing so is uncomfortable or awkward. They have conviction; they do not compromise in the name of social niceties. Once a decision is reached, they commit wholly.
  10. Dive Deep
    Leaders operate at once with immense perspective and granular detail. No task is beneath them. They audit frequently, and they are skeptical when metrics and anecdote differ.
  11. Deliver Results
    Leaders focus their time on the key drivers for their business. They pursue them obsessively to deliver results with the right quality and in a timely fashion. They rise to the occasion and never compromise.

 

If you're reading this and questioning whether you should apply, apply! There's no such thing as a perfect candidate, and we don't expect you to check every box. We're inspired by the uniqueness that people like you bring to the table. The companies that we incubate are only as innovative as the breadth of lived experiences shared by the teams building them. We can't wait to read your application!
