Company Overview

At Netlify, we're building a platform to empower digital designers and developers to build better, more elaborate web projects than ever before. We're aiming to change the landscape of modern web development.

We recently raised $53M in Series C funding to bring forward the next generation of tooling for a more accessible web. This round was led by the EQT Ventures with participation from existing investors Andreessen Horowitz & Kleiner Perkins. This brings Netlify’s funding raised in total to $107M to date. Other past investors include Bloomberg Beta, Designer Fund, and Tank Hill Ventures, as well as the founders of Figma, GitHub, Slack and Yelp.

Netlify is a diverse group of incredible talent from all over the world. We’re ~44% woman or non-binary, and are composed of about half as many nationalities as we are team members.

About the role: 

At Netlify, our data team exists to empower the entire organization to make the best decisions possible by providing accurate, timely, and useful insights. We build our data infrastructure as a product instead of just a service, with the ability to make a significant impact.

We’ve been remote-first since our inception and are a globally distributed team, spanning across North America and Europe. We’re biased towards asynchronous planning and communication, meaning less meetings and more execution. We take documentation seriously and place our values of transparency, empowerment, and commitment at the forefront of everything we do. We’re driven by passion and we make sure that everyone on the team knows their value, feels ownership over their work, and can quickly see the impact of their efforts. Beyond just hiring smart, empathetic team members, we foster a culture where there are no dumb questions and our team can get access to the resources that they need to continue to learn. As a remote-first company, diversity drives our identity. Whether you’re looking to launch a new career or grow an existing one, Netlify is the type of company where you can balance great work with great life.

We’re in the beginning stages of building out the foundation of our data team, so as a Data Analyst, you’ll be in an imperative position working closely with stakeholders to educate and empower them to use data as an analytic tool. With our team, you'll be turning rows and columns in a data warehouse into powerful business insights that can be used to make impactful decisions. This role will be providing crucial analyses that are accurate, reliable, reproducible, and is easily accessible to help impact the rest of the business. We think of Data analysts as business partners for their domains of expertise. Please note: This is a SQL-first role, not an Excel-first role.

  • Clear and direct communication skills about complex technical topics
  • Prior experience working with software development tools, like Git and the command line
  • Passion for building the best version of whatever you’re working on
  • A track record of working autonomously, with strong organizational and time management skills

  • Experience with DBT a plus

By the 30 day mark, you'll be... 

  • Understanding our values and how to work the Netlify way
  • On the journey of understanding the complexities around our business, customer, and engineering needs. We believe strongly that it’s essential for you to take the time to become familiar with our space & how we operate!
  • Having one-on-ones and pairing sessions with some of the people that you’ll be working closely with, including members of the finance, engineering, and product teams.
  • Learning from the team during weekly syncs
  • Helping definition-related conversations, acting as thought-leader to functional group
  • Working in Mode, writing SQL queries to produce dashboards
  • Getting a clear sense of where prioritization comes from

By the 60 day mark, you'll be... 

  • Comfortable working with dbt via the command line
  • Contributing to internal conversations on data organization and structure
  • Able to answer questions about what data exists and is ready for consumption
  • Answering questions using dashboards and analyses that already exist and contributing to our data catalogue
  • Partnering with our Data Manager around what types of projects you’d like to tackle to align with your goals and passions

By the 90 day mark, you'll be... 

  • Regularly contributing to documentation and housekeeping improvements for the team
  • Gathering requirements, scope, and build analysis with little-to-no guidance from more senior members of the team
  • Considering what conferences you’d like to attend or brainstorming how you’d like to utilize your training allowance
  • Helping lead triage initiatives and driving team efficiency as a core part of your work
  • Spending time floating around in the data exploring what interesting findings you can make on your own
