Technical Data Analyst

New York
Marketing & Data Insights
Full-time
We’re looking for a highly motivated data analyst with a strong technical background to join Bluecore’s Data Insights and Strategy team.  Your job will be to build, automate, and maintain various scalable processes for delivering insights distilled from terabytes of behavioral and purchase data across hundreds of retail sites.  We’re looking for someone with a solid technical background fluent in SQL and Python, who enjoys and appreciates creative thinking, efficient workflows, and digging into data.  You’ll be working closely with the analysts and strategists on the Insights team, as well as Bluecore’s software and data engineering teams.

The Data Insights and Strategy team has two key focuses - First to deliver custom deep dive analysis to Bluecore’s largest enterprise clients, and second (and equally important as the first) to productize and scale the most relevant insights so that they can be delivered to all Bluecore clients.  As a technical member of the Insights team, you will be responsible for developing efficient and robust processes for automating and scaling the team’s data analytics.  Bluecore has amazing data, but you’ll need a keen eye and meticulous thought processes for detecting bad data, anticipating and handling unusual scenarios, and building with future growth in mind.
