Data Analyst - Merchant Data Services

We’re looking for a Data Analyst to join our Merchant Data Services team.  The team’s vision is to provide Shopify’s largest merchants with the tools needed to understand, operate, and grow their business.  Our data services provide merchants with enterprise-class data capabilities without the substantial infrastructure start-up costs.

You’ll play a critical role in the success of these data services through close interaction with the merchant community as you develop a deep understanding of the metrics that make merchants successful, along with how they should be queried and visualized.  You’ll also be helping to evolve the product as you become an expert of the merchant data model.  You’ll build new data models for merchants that encompass vital aspects of their business (i.e. inventory, online store revenue attribution, taxes…etc.).  And as a subject matter expert, you’ll write blog posts showcasing what’s possible with retail analytics and build open source libraries in SQL and Python to help our merchants excel!

Things you’ll need to succeed in this role:

    • Extensive experience analyzing data using SQL - to the extent that you are comfortable writing in front of customers
    • Experience with Tableau, Mode, Chartio or similar data visualization tools
    • Strong communication skills, with experience communicating with both customers and across internal organizations

It’s a plus if you have:

    • Experience in Retail analytics for large companies
    • Familiarity or exposure to accounting concepts and/or terminology
    • Knowledge of Python or other programming language
