About the Team
The Analytics team is a critical function that supports data-driven decision-making throughout Harry's. In partnership with our Data Engineering team, we make sure that data flows throughout the company, and everyone has the information they need to make better decisions faster. The analytics team thinks about data and insights across our global supply chain, through the marketing we show our customers, to when the customer gets a package at their door or at their nearest retailer.
As Harry’s, Inc diversifies across more channels, geographies, and brands, it is becoming increasingly more important that our data tells the story of the entire portfolio in a way that clarifies ROI and tradeoffs for our leaders. To support this need, we are focused on building out a new Business Insights function within Analytics. This team’s responsibilities will span:
- Maintaining the analytics layer of our data model in the data warehouse and in our BI tools (i.e., Looker)
- Maintaining our metrics and data definitions in a nuanced yet consistent manner across brands
- Synthesizing data on a regular basis to provide leadership with portfolio-level insights on business health, breaking down the silos that exist today within business units
- Driving deep analysis of the whats and whys of key drivers to surface hypotheses for action
About the Role
Harry’s is seeking an Analytics leader who can build out and manage the Business Insights function. In this role specifically, you will be responsible for diving deep into our omni-channel performance and owning the data and narrative on our business health to share with leaders across the company. You will manage a team of high performing BI analysts and analytics engineers to get the job done.
Because our business is complex, we need someone with both a strong business acumen, excellent storytelling skills, and a robust technical toolkit. You’ll work with key decision-makers throughout the company, and also share your insights and recommendations with all levels of the business, including our CEO.

- Automate and own the KPI dashboards that regularly report out on business health
- Consolidate data points from across business units to synthesize the overall story
- Own deep analyses of our drivers that surface insights that lead to actions. For example, you might:
- Investigate the underlying drivers of churns and cancellations
- Deep dive on what’s impacting our On-Time In-Full metric and how that’s affecting LTVs
- Track the customer journey across our eCommerce platforms and brick & mortar
- Understand what our segment of top customers looks like and diagnose why Harry’s products work for them
- Maintain the analytics layer of our data model to drive insights across our many brands
- Work rapidly with data engineering to manage the transition of consolidating data across business units into a single data warehouse and data model for ease of consumption by other analysts and cross-functional partners
- Run a highly engaged and high performing team of BI analysts and analytics engineers
Background and Experience:

- Engaged Analytical Thought Partner – You are excited about partnering with coworkers to figure out how analytics can solve problems. You are skilled in translating business questions into data analysis visions to execute. You are great at communicating in order to both fully understand someone’s business needs and to communicate potential limitations of your approach
- Tactical Problem Solver – You have experience boiling down medium and large scope data problems into measurable and achievable blocks of work. You have the foresight to identify and dismantle potential roadblocks ahead of time. Furthermore, you’re pragmatic: you can identify and work on the most important problems first and you want to find the highest-impact lowest cost solution
- Clear and concise communicator – You know how to communicate complex concepts effectively and concisely and are comfortable presenting and debating in large groups. We’re looking for strong data advocates who can plug into cross-functional working teams seamlessly and drive cultural pushes for the organization to become more data driven
Values that might describe you:
- You like to solve problems - You push yourself to solve problems in novel, scalable ways so that you are never solving the same problem twice
