    • Analyze trends and draw insights, solving problems for product management and client insights.
    • Solve client driven data investigations.
    • Collaborate with teams in Software Engineering, Operations, and Product Management to deliver timely and quality data.

    • Ability to think creatively and solve complex problems.
    • Ability to autonomously manage simultaneous projects in a fast-paced business environment.
    • Excellent verbal, written and computer communication skills with strong analytical and troubleshooting skills.
    • The nature of the teams dynamics will require an individual that is able to work closely in a collaborative role with other team members, as well as complete tasks individually as assigned.


    • Hadoop or other comparable MapReduce experience.
    • Ability to develop advanced solutions in Python.
