The B2B Insights & Analytics team exists to drive optimal decision-making that improves our business customers’ FF&E shopping experience through Sales interactions. We seek to optimize Sales incrementality by identifying the most CLV-accretive Sales interactions with customers, as a critical driver of our flywheel. The data we are experts in represents the voice of external customers (e.g. onsite activity, communication with Business accounts, orders, & firmographic data) and internal customers (e.g. onsite activity, communication between Sales representatives & Business accounts, CRM, and Sales Operations data) - we source, interpret and translate that voice into action that serves our customers. This team leads measurement - particularly around causal inference - and also plays a data challenger role to ensure the STO understands the “why” behind great customer experiences. And we partner closely with Data Science - to jointly develop and apply machine learning approaches to drive growth, and Data Solutions/Engineering - to ensure we have a strong, and high-velocity data foundation.

Program Recommendations exists to identify opportunities and provide actionable recommendations based on hard data to grow revenue and improve efficiency. We strive to deliver better understanding of customers and improve the engagement model between Sales and customers.

What You’ll Do

  • Use SQL, Python and Looker to wrangle Wayfair’s unique data to develop hypotheses, experiments and analyses that point to the most significant business growth opportunities.

  • Break down complex problems into requisite components, design and analyze experiments, and iterate to improve North Star metrics.

Potential projects you could own:

  • Predict customer lifetime value and/or customer potential by leveraging web browsing data, order data and third party data to inform sales treatment and program path.

  • Create customer segmentations and design targeted treatments (frequency of outreaches through phone, email etc.) for high-value customers.

What You’ll Need

  • 2+ years of SQL and Python experience, as well as the understanding of the basics of query optimization. Experience with Looker and Jupyter notebooks, a plus. 

  • Experience with modeling (customer segmentation, predictive modeling, and NLP), required. 

  • Experience with experiment design, implementation, and analysis (A/B tests, holdout tests, etc.), required. 

  • Experience with methods and techniques of drawing meaning from data sets and statistical tests.
