The Guns are on the hunt for a data-driven business analyst for a company that’s on the road to becoming “Kickstarter for small business.” This is a great gig if have your eyes set on moving into product management. Why? Your job will be to spot trends in data, elevate them, find white space, and let senior management in on what you’re seeing.

You’re the Sherlock Holmes of data. Your curiosity knows no bounds and you absolutely love a good mystery and won’t quit until you solve it. If there’s a spiking trend on your radar, you’re not happy until you’ve pinned down the whys and wherefores. You’re a constant tinkerer, but that’s because you like to build stuff. Few things make you happier than a well-crafted pivot table (seriously, how do people who don’t intimately know Excel get along in the world?). You’re a whiz at creating dashboards and have been dubbed a SQL or SAS ninja (you may or may not have been known to write queries in your sleep).
But you’re not just a reporting wonk. You’ve got serious analytics chops that make you well suited for not only digging into and reporting on data, but also the intellectual firepower to connect all the dots into an actionable plan. You’re relentlessly customer focused; every piece of data tells a story about your users and you love turning over the rocks to find them. You’re at home presenting your findings to higher ups and they love to listen to what you have to say. Your ownership mentality makes you constantly scan your professional environment, looking for new ways to add value. You’re a “forgiveness rather than permission” kind of guy and you don’t need to be micromanaged or have every task handed to you.
Our client is counting on you to segment and uncover the needs of a broad user base of small businesses, so there’s a lot of room for a skilled data analyst to play storyteller here. You’ll also be owning a lot of your own projects, so you’ll need to come with ideas and be ready to get your feet wet on day one. A passion for understanding key business goals and needs is crucial, and you’ll be expected to roll up those sleeves and dig in. From KPI development and tracking to the creation of innovative marketing trend reports, this gig will keep you on your toes. There’s also an important cross-functional component here; you’ll be the primary liaison to the Digital Marketing team and the Product Development team.
This gig is no place for your standard-issue quant. To succeed here you’ll need intense curiosity, customer focus, self-direction, and the ability to spin complex data into a clear story. The hiring manager here is something of an investigative behaviorist, so be you’ll win serious brownie points with a major or minor in behavioral science. In addition, the company is still young but boasts high year-over-year growth, so this isn’t exactly a born-yesterday app garage.
This high-tech client is about to disrupt small biz banking and they have the war chest and tools of a much larger company. If you’re a brilliant analyst who’s currently stifled by corporate sludge, come on over. It’s better over here.
