- Own our data stack. We are currently using Fivetran for ingestion, dbt for Transformations, and BigQuery as our data warehouse; and we are open to trying new things. The most important component of the stack that we expect for you to own and lead is the transformation layer as it serves a foundational role in the architecture of our analytical capabilities.

- Data warehousing (e.g. BigQuery, Snowflake, RedShift, etc.)
- Transformation and modeling (e.g. dbt)
- Fluency in SQL
- Ideally you have comfort with at least one programming language such as Python or R
- In the first 30 days you will learn our business and how we work. You will familiarize yourself with our data sets and our data stack.
- In the first 60 days you will dive into discovery with stakeholders to begin to identify key metrics. Also, in this period, you will take ownership of our data stack and begin committing code in dbt as well as extending existing dashboards.
- In the first 90 days you will have a long term vision and plan for how to leverage data at Mighty.
The hiring process is a two way street! We want to find someone for whom Mighty is the perfect fit. Please ask us lots of questions to ensure you are learning what you need to learn about us. Here is an overview of how and what we will be assessing throughout the process:
- A conversation with hiring manager, VP of Engineering, Aaron Gibralter.

- A conversation with our recruiting team to go over some basic HR questions.
- A conversation with Andrew Bartholomew, who is advising us on building out our analytics function.
- A case study interview to assess data exploration and visualization.
- A data modeling and programming interview with an engineer.
- A stakeholder alignment interview to assess cross-functional communication.
- A conversation with our founder, Josh Schwadron.
Please note: we have this role posted under a few different titles as there is not universal alignment on titles in the data world. In the interest of transparency, here is how we think about the nuances of titles with regard to this role:
- Analytics Engineer: this best captures a need for technical rigor; however, it may not clearly stress the importance of finding someone with a very strong business sense.
- Data Analyst: this is perhaps the most “accurate,” but it may not articulate the technical requirements; we also fear there may be a stigma against this title as “data scientist” may appeal to more people.
- Data Scientist: this is most likely resonant with the market, but will likely generate the most noise as it has become a pretty large bucket of different skills and interests.
This article, written by Andrew Bartholomew, summarizes how we are thinking about this role.
