Where will you land?

As a Lead Data Analyst/Scientist in the Growth Data Team, you will lead a team of Senior Data Analysts and will help them to grow both professionally and personally. Besides sharpening and multiplying their analytical skills, you will help them to schedule, prioritize, define scopes and deliver value to their business stakeholders.

  • We also believe in leading teams by example, so we expect you to be a hands-on leader, willing to get your hands dirty in the datasets, models, queries, and everything that your team needs support on.
  • You will also coordinate with the other data leads to work on key analyses and projects that are considered to have the highest impact, and risk, or that have broader application scope.
  • You will be periodically reporting to the Data Director about the progress of the team and will spot and anticipate the main challenges, risks, and blockers that you are facing to perform your work.

What do we expect from you?

  • We are looking for somebody that shows both good technical and people skills that can empower a Senior Data Analytics Team and help them reach up to their top performance by providing them the tools, time, and purpose for their daily activity.
  • You’ll try to anticipate their needs and limitations, and also help the Data Director on creating a career path for the whole of the team. That may involve collaborating on building a network of relevant people in the organization to best serve the Growth Data needs.
    In order to be hands-on, you need to have good technical skills to work with git, SQL, Python, and/or R notebooks and code.
  • Considering that you’ll also be frequently in touch with the Data Engineering team, you will also need a clear understanding of how ETL pipelines work, among other Data warehousing and Data Engineering related topics.
  • Understanding how Data Science, Machine Learning, and Artificial Intelligence work, or having some common understanding of other Data and Software Engineering related topics such as Frontend, Backend, and Mobile development will be a plus.
  • Finally, you’ll ensure that other non-data, non-technical profiles in the company can transparently get access to the tools they need to do their job so that they can feel empowered to perform data-driven questions and eventually get them answered. This may involve preparing and performing learning sessions for people from other departments.
