Who we are looking for:

As a member of the Data Team at ACV, the Analytics Engineers primary objective is to serve the needs of ACV & its customers.

Primacy will remain on the fundamentals of great questions, good process, competent analysis, clear communication, team wins, & focused contribution to the companys needs. No amount of education, training, or pedigree will substitute for a willingness to follow directions & receive feedback from the Manager of the Data team.
