Are you at your best when teaching others about data?  Do you find yourself saying “but was the difference statistically significant?”, even to your friends?  Is r/dataisbeautiful one of your favorite subreddits?  

Then we’d like to cordially invite you to geek out on data with us as the newest member of Updater’s Data team, as we continue our quest to use data to improve business outcomes and make Updater a data-driven company. By partnering with teams across Updater, Data enriches customer experience and helps develop new products, drives strategy and discovers insights, evangelizes data-driven decision-making, and facilitates data access and education, all in the service of Updater’s vision of being the leading platform for the relocation industry. 

As Lead Data Analyst, you’ll be a leader on our team and will own relationships with stakeholders across the organization to perform analysis, make business recommendations, provide data education, build data-based logic into our products, and lots more.  If you love using data to influence decision-making and aren’t satisfied until a project is driven to meaningful impact, we want to work with you!

  • Practical knowledge of statistics.
  • Experience with modern reporting tools (Looker, Metabase, Superset, etc).
