What's the opportunity? 🤔

At Intercom, Analytics & Data Science teammates partner with every function in the organization in order to help teams make data-informed decisions and take data-informed actions. We're highly quantitative individuals who love to turn data into insights and communicate our findings fearlessly, and we're looking for people with a similar mindset who are constantly curious, driven to understand our business better, and committed to creating value.   In this role, you will partner with the Customer Engagement team, whose mission is to educate and inspire companies to use more Intercom via world-class marketing experiences. You will also collaborate with go-to-market teams across Intercom (including Marketing, Sales, BizOps, Finance, and Growth R&D) to measure new initiatives, make data-driven recommendations around go-to-market strategy, and help identify areas to leverage automation. In addition to being experienced analytically, we’re looking for someone who knows the right questions to ask of the data, can proactively surface recommendations and insights, and can work across the analytics and data stack in order to solve problems. If this sounds like you, we would love to hear from you!   To give you a sense of some specific projects you might work on, here are a few of our recent workstreams: understanding and modeling drivers of expansion, segmenting customers into renewal/retention motions, understanding the efficacy of customer education (such as Intercom Academy), measuring performance of expansion campaigns, prioritizing which customers our sales team should reach out to, building attribution models, and many more.

What skills do I need? 📖

  • 3+ years of work experience in analytics/data science role OR 1+ years of work experience in analytics/data science role and advanced degree in Statistics, Econometrics, Computer Science, or related quantitative field
  • A proven track record of initiating and delivering actionable analyses/recommendations in order to drive business impact
