About the role:

You are bilingual in both “business” and “data” and like to tackle real-world business problems by developing solutions that are driven by data. You are a hands-on person that finds the challenge of analyzing complex and disparate data exciting. You are equally excited working by yourself on data analysis and working with others on cross-functional teams. As a key member of a high-caliber team responsible for leading various analytical initiatives to support business growth. At AdRoll, we believe that good ideas can come from anywhere, and we’ll trust you to collaborate across teams, form intelligent opinions, and help others make good decisions throughout the company.

  • Structured thinker: Ability to distill complex issues into structured frameworks and concrete action plans to facilitate alignment on key strategic decisions among various stakeholders and reach actionable answers without analysis overload.
  • Can-do attitude: Capable of autonomously seeking out information, corralling resources, and delivering results. Know that done is better than perfect and continual iteration is important. Ready and excited to learn on your feet.
  • Good communicator: Concise and on-point and able to communicate findings in a clear and structured manner both written and verbal to cross-functional colleagues.
  • Teammate: Able to work with a diverse set of partners across business functions in a fast-paced startup environment. This is an excellent opportunity to engage with Sales, Marketing, Partnerships, Product, Engineering, and Finance to understand all aspects of AdRoll to support and inform decision-making for transformational business initiatives.
