About Vareto

Vareto is reimagining how companies evaluate the past and plan for the future. Today, companies make their most important decisions using a web of spreadsheets, presentations, legacy tools, and countless meetings and emails. As a result, executives make decisions with limited data, teams waste time aligning on metric definitions instead of collaborating, and analysts end up debugging Excel files instead of generating insights.

Vareto is building a next-generation planning and insights platform that changes all of that. Our product helps companies standardize their business data, derive and share insights, and build connected cloud-based financial plans - all so companies can make better, faster decisions. 

We’re a remote-first team (hiring in the US, Canada, and New Zealand) and we’re backed by top investors and industry leaders. 


About the role

As an early member of the Analytics team, you will play a critical role in developing Vareto's data stack and building the foundation of the company. You'll spend most of your time doing exploratory analyses and sharing insights and recommendations. You'll also help build out the data infra including core tables, pipelines, models, and dashboards. The ideal candidate will be excited about joining an early-stage company, building from scratch, and having a major impact on both our team and our customers.

What you'll do

    • Tell stories using data both internally to Vareto teams and externally to our customers
    • Do exploratory analysis of new datasets to provide clear insights into business drivers, opportunities and risks
    • Identify commonalities across analysis results and automate processes where it makes sense
    • Recommend new product features to better track business growth for our executive customers and enable actionable recommendations
    • Partner with leadership teams to help develop KPIs, create accountability against agreed goals, and implement methods to measure success
    • Partner with the engineering team to build out Vareto's internal data stack including core tables and dashboards

What we look for

    • 4+ years of experience doing quantitative analysis
    • BA/BS in Computer Science, Math, Physics, Engineering, Statistics or equivalent experience
    • Expert at SQL, including complex queries (bonus: experience with data pipelines, particularly in a startup environment)
    • Experience manipulating data sets using Python, R, SAS, or other methods
    • Strong communication skills and the ability to use data to tell stories
    • Experience presenting analysis results to leadership teams to influence strategy and decision-making.
