Analytics Engineer

At Fishtown Analytics, our mission is to empower analysts to create and disseminate organizational knowledge. The product we create, dbt (data build tool,, is used by thousands of companies every week, and that number is growing fast.

We’re looking for an experienced analytics engineer to join our Professional Services team. We help startups set up their initial analytics infrastructure and Fortune 1000 companies migrate to modern analytics tools. The work is challenging, to say the least. In return, you’ll be able to work with one of the most talented data teams on the east coast and with some of the most exciting companies in the world. Sound like something you’re interested in? We’d love to hear from you.

Who we are

At Fishtown Analytics, we have developed strong opinions on how companies should practice analytics.

Specifically, we believe that: 
--> Code, not graphical user interfaces, is the best abstraction to express complex analytic logic
--> Data analysts should adopt similar practices and tools to software developers
--> Critical analytics infrastructure should be controlled by its users as open source software
--> Analytic code itself — not just analytics tools — will increasingly be open source

It turns out that a lot of other people believe this too! Over the course of the past several years we've built a community of 5,000+ people and 1,700 companies who are using our ideas, products, and workflows to conduct analytics, including Lyft, Monzo, GitLab, Snowflake, the ACLU, Amazon, JetBlue, and RentTheRunway. Our product, dbt (, has come to be synonymous with the practice of analytics engineering, defining an entire industry.
