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 are just as comfortable diving deep into data sets to deliver detailed and well-structured models and analyses as you are turning around scrappy but well thought out insights to support a fast-moving business. You will succeed by combining analytical insight, technical proficiency, business acumen, and the ability to collaborate and influence your key partners and cross-functional teams.

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


  • 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
