Gladly is a Radically Personal Customer Service Platform that puts people at the center of a single, lifelong conversation. We enable companies to talk to their customers the way people talk to their friends: seamlessly across voice, email, SMS, chat, and social media.
Gladly’s data products are a foundation for enabling contact center leaders to understand their team’s performance and identify opportunities for their company. Because of Gladly’s unique approach to customer service, the data we provide is a key differentiator, not an afterthought. Our data warehouse also gives Gladly’s customer success team the insights to help customers optimize their use of the product. We create a range of metrics and datasets based on carefully designed events and data models. We are looking for an analytics engineer to join our small, fast-growing and high impact team.

- Collaborate with various Gladly teams to design the data warehouse schema, modeling it in a way that empowers other teams to answer their questions.
- Build, test and operate transformations of event streams and transactional data into analytics models.
- Apply software engineering best practices like CI/CD and observability to the analytics code base.
- Build tooling and monitoring to ensure data warehouse cost effectiveness and scalability.

Research has shown that individuals from marginalized groups are less likely to apply to jobs where they don't meet 100% of the criteria. Gladly values diversity of experience, so if you believe you have the right skill set, we welcome you to apply - even if you don't check every box in the job description. We're committed to an inclusive workplace and would love to see if you could be the next great addition to our team.
