The right candidate has enough data analysis to be able to marry a business question to a data set. Probably know enough SQL to be dangerous but this is not a strict requirement, however they have had experience working with data outside of excel. They are comfortable working with products that will be client facing and a few analytical chops are useful too.  S/he may be a person with a successful internship after a coding bootcamp and looking for that first full time role or may be currently working as a backend engineer but wanting to ramp up on a new style of role after that includes analytics & the view layer.

Experience Preferred

  • Bachelor’s in Computer Science
  • Business analysis & delivery for projects & visualization is a differentiator
