As a Redfinnian, you'll make a difference in one of life's most important events—buying or selling a home. Our hiring standards are high, yet our culture is humble. No matter what role you have, you'll be both challenged and inspired every day. We've got all the perks, but if what you value most is doing great work in a creative, collaborative, and disciplined environment, join us.

As a Senior Data Analyst focused on Operations, you'll use a wide array of data sources, including some of the most robust real estate data in the world, to build tools and answer questions that drive key business decisions across the entire company.

We need an analytical expert with an entrepreneurial spirit to help us turn our data into tangible, usable business insights for these new businesses to become success stories.

  • Own analytics for several growth businesses in Redfin's portfolio. Analyze new initiatives and engineering features, identify and evaluate process improvements. Build metrics to track and improve operational effectiveness and efficiency. Help with budgeting and strategic planning for these businesses.
  • Partner with Real Estate Operations, New Ventures, Marketing, Engineering, Finance and Program Management teams to answer tough questions that inform the business and drive strategic data-driven decision making.
  • Use your technical and business expertise to make our operations more analytical, and our analytics more valuable.
