Join our team and help the world manage risk in real time. You’ll work with 600+ talented people across seven offices, united by our passion to collaborate, make a difference, and have fun while doing it! 

Who you are:

You're an experienced and technical Senior Data Analyst interested in applying your quantitative skills to challenging questions within a data-intensive, information SAAS business that drives innovation across multiple sectors. You have worked closely with senior executives in a highly analytical role (data analysis and visualization, business and/or marketing analysis, optimization problems, statistical modeling) understanding and refining key metrics and their relationships to measure business success.  You develop warm relationships with stakeholders and enjoy helping them understand metric trade-offs as you drive influential decisions forward and create impactful change.  You excel when you are working in ambiguous problem spaces and can extract meaning from complex datasets to provide impactful insights.  You have ample technical experience writing optimized SQL, deploying BI platforms, and using Python and R to transform granular event data into aggregated insights [bonus for experience with Looker or Snowflake].  You have a bias towards action, and are not afraid to rollup your sleeves and build the datasets you need to support your work.  You communicate your insights both verbally and visually, you are comfortable managing your own work while juggling multiple priorities in a rapidly-growing organization and you naturally build effective partnerships across organizational and functional boundaries in order to deliver high-quality and impactful results. 

The opportunity:

The Strategic Data Analytics team at Dataminr leads in analytical problem solving, leveraging data and rigorous analytics to help drive key initiatives at the company. Data Analysts continuously improve the accuracy and efficiency of our analytics and reporting infrastructure.  We drive process optimizations forward and provide an analytical framework for the insights that inform product, marketing, sales, and business decisions across the company.  This is an opportunity to shape the next generation of our analytics platform including the evaluation of AI features. You’ll work to refine what we measure and how we interpret and use that data to inform business decisions.  To do this, you'll use a combination of 3rd party and homegrown analytics tooling to transform raw data into meaningful insights informed by best practices in data governance and analytical techniques.  You’ll identify metrics that enable high quality understanding of the performance of the company’s key initiatives and then work with our Data and Analytics Engineers to implement the corresponding ETLs, data models and BI tooling that measure and track performance.  You’ll work with individual teams to enhance their use of data to improve efficiencies and you’ll continually teach what you learn to others.
