    • You’ve built data solutions (dashboards, queries, data models) to answer key questions in the business, this is demonstrated by experience in calculating & measuring company KPIs, product funnels, user journeys, acquisition, churn, profitability metrics, and ROIs for multiple business units
    • You’re an expert in seeking, defining, and calculating metrics that run a business and making them available to all. Your experience is solidified by your ability to separate between a vanity metric and a KPI.
    • You’re able to see the patterns and trends in data; you know what story it tells, and how it correlates with the business. These patterns or insights are present regularly at all levels of management to influence decisions.

    • You’ve deployed and scaled company-wide BI solutions that must consider technical BI concepts such as; dashboard performance, data governance, ETL processing, scalability, and security/access control. Experience in Looker and Tableau is preferred, and Power BI is a nice-to-have.
    • You’ve deployed multiple centralized data models/ data marts and are familiar with the core concepts of data modeling such as; facts vs dimensions, entities, cardinality, normalization, relationships, Kimball vs Inmon, and grain. Experience with DBT is preferred.

  • Past experience in the Esports/Gaming/Betting/Events industry would be a great asset.
