*Must be US Work authorized. Resumes without a cover letter will not be considered.*

The Flex Company is growing very quickly and is looking to hire an eager, hard-working Data Analyst to support the Growth Marketing team in cross-functional initiatives.

The role of our Data Analyst will be to support company-wide goals and decisions and be the owner/keeper of several critical marketing and cross functional metrics. This means understanding broader strategy, asking the right questions, working with available data, coming up with insights, and being able to communicate finding and recommendations in a concise and compelling ways. This is cross-functional and critical position for us.

We are currently building our analytics and data science infrastructure, so the ideal candidate must not be reliant on BI tools and dashboards, but rather love and live in the raw data and be able to draw insights by asking the right questions and building/using their own models and queries.

This not a role for someone whose experience is building reports in Power BI, Tableau, Looker, etc. This is for someone who is comfortable living in the raw data, drawing insights and visualizations themselves, and eventually building out our data capabilities from the ground up.
