ThisProduct Data Analystrole will support our Product & Engineering teams, providing the final word on all analytics for CarGurus online retail experience. We are looking for thoughtful, curious, internally driven candidates who can dive into complex data & draw novel, insightful conclusions. Youll work cross-functionally with many departments & stakeholders, & gain exposure to multiple dimensions of the business. 

What Youll Tackle: 

  • Exploration: Using your SQL expertise, conduct exploratory empirical analyses that bridge disparate data sources (e.g. website usage, subscription records, inventory volumes, etc.) to quantify product performance, user behavior, and/or market trends. Doing so will require distilling unstructured big data into actionable insights. 
  • Experimentation: Be the authority on A/B experimentation, advising engineers & product managers on everything from the necessary data points to collect, required sample sizes, optimal metrics to examine, robustness of numerical findings, & the bottom-line success or failure of the tested changes. Provide technical guidance on & ideas for improving A/B testing-related tools, algorithms, & automated processes. 
  • Advocacy: Advocate for specific, data-driven product innovations that help further high-level company strategy, primarily in partnership with the Product/Engineering teams. Participate in brainstorming & planning discussions across the organization to these ends. 
  • Metrics: Craft the metrics that define business success, condensing abstract or loosely-defined challenges down to concrete calculations.  
  • Visualizations: Build intuitive dashboards & other visual monitoring tools to guide daily decision-making by senior stakeholders & the company at large. 
  • Communication: Communicate & present complex quantitative findings in easily digestible terms to company leadership, homing in on key takeaways. 
  • Architecture: Conceive of new data assets & build automated transformations (via DBT, LookML, etc.) to bring them to fruition. Partner with Data Engineering teams to advance core data modeling/architecture (e.g. user clickstream logging), by optimizing, integrating, & distilling large raw datasets & metadata.  

Who You Are: 

  • 2+ years of experience in an analytics or analytics-adjacent field, ideally involving data modeling, statistical literacy, and/or user behavior. 
  • Expert fluency in SQL. Experience with statistical programming (R, Stata, SAS, Python) is desirable. 
  • Working understanding of core statistical concepts (regression, significance testing, omitted variable bias, independence/dependence, etc.). 
  • Knack for creative data visualizations. 
  • Willingness to step outside your role & independently come up with novel ideas for the business. 
  • Willingness to challenge others ideas & advocate for your own. 
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills, especially for presentations.

Research shows that while men apply to jobs when they meet an average of 60% of the criteria, women & other marginalized folks tend to only apply when they check every box.
