  • Drive our Northstar Vision at Gigs. You will refine existing metrics and introduce new KPIs to steer our business forward. Your role is pivotal in defining business logic, implementing it through SQL in dbt, and ensuring that metrics are prominently presented across the company.
  • Lead in data modeling and building for scale. Partner with teams from diverse domains and roles. Empower them to harness the potential of data from their daily tools and derive meaningful outcomes.
  • Become our data modeling pillar and SQL advocate. As our business matures we will need to build for scale. Testing and documentation are close to your heart. Engage in data discussions, collaborate with stakeholders, and occasionally spearhead training sessions on Analytics tools to drive data literacy across Gigs.
  • Pioneer central data modeling to unlock transformative use cases. Your expertise will be paramount in architecting centralized data models that continue to power initiatives like usage-based billing and customer-facing reports. By ensuring a unified and consistent modeling framework, you'll enable a multitude of functionalities that drive both operational efficiency and customer satisfaction.
  • Find workarounds for data issues that scale. Our stack is built on top of event data. This means bugs from production can sometimes end up in our datawarehouse. You can build elegant workarounds for those issues that don’t slow us down in the future.
  • Optimize and innovate with top-tier data tools. Our existing data infrastructure includes Fivetran, dbt, Bigquery, Looker and Hex. While these form our foundation, your vision will guide the exploration and incorporation of state-of-the-art transofrmation tools. We are always experimenting with new tools and approaches.

  • You eat flexibility for breakfast. You can grapple with ambiguity and can quickly shift gears when the needs change. You love solving difficult problems and exploring many areas within data.
  • You are naturally curious. You love diving into raw data sets, understanding the underlying contents, diving into documentation and working with Engineers to abstract life cycle events into business logic. You are aware things constantly change so you keep tests front end center.
  • You (over-) communicate. You love engaging with stakeholders and solving their problems. You need little to no help when driving business outcomes and communicating proactively to your team and stakeholders.
  • You love (written) documentation. You have seen the value of documentation in organizations and push it forward across data models, metrics and insights. You write down your course of action before engaging in any serious work to think things through.
  • You’re a proud data nerd. You’re innately technical and have a knack for learning new tools. You have experience writing complex SQL on raw data, have expert-level knowledge of common cloud data warehouses, can manipulate a number of data tools in your sleep, and have strong opinions about each. Looking for extra credit? Knowledge of Python will get you there.
