Once a Pollen Experience is reserved and paid for, we need to make it happen! The first critical part of this is fulfilment, which involves shipping people their access passes, putting people in the rooms they’ll love, close to the people they love travelling with, providing essential information to both people travelling and the vendors  (e.g. rooming lists for hotels, ski/snowboard boot rental, dietary requirements for brunch vendors). These are information heavy workflows, and we need an analytics engineer to help build the reporting products that form a critical part of this workflow. 


What you’ll do in the next 6 months

  • Clearly establish and articulate fulfillment information needs: Shadow the fulfilment team and work with the product manager to clearly define the information requirements for current Fulfillment workflows, ultimately converting them into data & reporting specifications. Success will be measured by the number of fulfilment workflows that have clearly documented information requirements (e.g. data specifications, data user journeys if applicable)
  • Build reporting products for the 5 most critical fulfilment workflows: Work with the product manager and back end engineers to build the reports and that enables Fulfilment teams to execute without direct support of a data professional. Success will be measured by the  number of ad hoc fulfilment information requests needed while executing those 5 critical workflows (fewer the better, ideally 0!)
  • Join the team as the go-to-person for ad hoc data needs: Integrate into the Fulfilment team’s rhythms and help to satisfy their data needs as they execute to prepare everything our Members and Vendors need to enjoy their experience!
  • Synthesis ad hoc requests and additional capture and scope new fulfilment needs before addressing them: Reduce ad hoc requests over time and become the goalie of all information new requests in #Fulfilment slack channel and team rhythms, creating tickets for work, clarifying the need, adding to existing workflow documents and developing or iterating on the reports to satisfy the needs. Success will be measured by the low volume of ad hoc needs and the number of executional tasks that can be performed by fulfilment team without your direct support. 
  • Build all operational reports needed into Retool: Build the reports into retool and work with Engineering teams to make them available in our internal Django product environment. Success will be measured by the % of information requests that can be satisfied in that Product environment (ie. without further work in Excel or Looker)


What you’ll need to be successful

  • SQL: Extremely high level of SQL wizardry, capable of developing and performance optimising queries from complex snowflake-type schemas. Comfortable producing views and materialised tables in various SQL-based environments (e.g. analytical environments such as Snowflake, BigQuery, Redshift and operational data environments such as postgres)
  • Github: Lives by the PR/merge request. Sets the standard for forking branches, using version control, pushes early and often and prunes at the end of each sprint. Capable of committing code to a production environment.
  • Scoping information needs: Able to autonomously work across with stakeholders to understand their workflow specific information needs and convert them into data and reporting specifications
  • Solution Design: Able to design interactive reports that facilitate scoped workflows above e.g. by knowing when to use a filter vs an interaction. 
  • BI Tooling: Experience working in a variety of BI environments (e.g. Looker, Tableau, Power BI) and at least some exposure to developing reports in a production application environment (e.g. using Retool, or an embedded looker/tableau capability)
  • Organizational skills: Ability to self organise around delivering to pre specified objectives and major milestones (e.g. by doing own story and task-level sprint planning)

Team skills: Experience working in a cross functional team and communicating with non-technical stakeholders
