Data Scientist, Sales Analytics

  • Remote, NC, United States
  • Full-time

Company Description

Since we opened our doors in 2009, the world of commerce has evolved immensely, and so has Square. After enabling anyone to take payments and never miss a sale, we saw sellers stymied by disparate, outmoded products and tools that wouldn’t work together.

To solve this problem, we expanded into software and built integrated solutions to help sellers sell online, manage inventory, book appointments, engage loyal buyers, and hire and pay staff. Across it all, we’ve embedded financial services tools at the point of sale, so merchants can access a business loan and manage their cash flow in one place. Afterpay furthers our goal to provide omnichannel tools that unlock meaningful value and growth, enabling sellers to capture the next generation shopper, increase order sizes, and compete at a larger scale.

Today, we are a partner to sellers of all sizes – large, enterprise-scale businesses with complex operations, sellers just starting, as well as merchants who began selling with Square and have grown larger over time. As our sellers grow, so do our solutions. There is a massive opportunity in front of us. We’re building a significant, meaningful, and lasting business, and we are helping sellers worldwide do the same.

Job Description

North America is a key battleground in the increasingly competitive buy-now-pay-later (BNPL) space. Afterpay is a global leader in the category and is seeking an experienced professional to serve as a key analytics partner to the North America sales team as we defend and grow our position in the region. You will work on a small and nimble team and have the opportunity to perform novel, high-impact analyses for a hungry and supportive group of stakeholders.

You will:

  • Work closely with Sales stakeholders to understand their needs and pain points and proactively propose, develop, and deploy scalable solutions

  • Assist the Sales team in developing methodologies and frameworks to accurately assess and measure the projected and realized business impact of various operational strategies

  • Provide tailored input to propel key business initiatives forward, working on small cross-functional teams as the key analytics point of contact 

  • Isolate, identify and communicate data issues to technical and non-technical audiences and clearly convey impact and remediation plans verbally and in writing

  • Work with partner teams to establish tracking, metric definition and data warehousing requests with an eye for data clarity, completeness, and integrity

Qualifications

  • 5+ years relevant experience or 3+ years relevant experience with a pertinent master’s degree

  • Quantitative background in statistics, mathematics, computer science, or related disciplines

  • Work experience with analytics tools like Python, R, and SQL and data visualization tools like Tableau, Looker, or Power BI. 

  • Ability to influence senior stakeholders, stand up for yourself, and express disagreements in a constructive and gracious manner

  • Strong project management skills and ability to work effectively in a fast-paced environment with multiple competing priorities and tight deadlines

  • Prior experience partnering with Sales teams is ideal but not required
