What will make you stand out:
  • Background in experimentation and measurement. We're looking to streamline our experimentation reporting framework and would love your help.
  • A workflow involving reproducible methods and version control - Github, Docker.
  • Experience automating dashboards with business intelligence tools - Looker, Tableau.
