Senior Analytics Engineer

Courier
Courier

At Courier, we are on a mission to make software-to-human communication delightful.

To do this, we want to do for notification infrastructure what Stripe has done for payments infrastructure by making building and sending notifications fast, easy, and delightful. We’ve created the complete user communication stack for developer teams: our API takes the tedium out of integrating various notification channels, while our Studio lets anyone design a message template and deliver the right message to the right user at the right time with a single API call. Email, Push, Slack, SMS, you name it.

We’ve raised $12.5 million from Bessemer Venture Partners, Matrix Partners, Twilio, SendGrid, Slack, and Y Combinator. We're fanatical about delivering an amazing experience to software developers of companies big and small, and our goal is to build a platform that developers don’t just use but one that they love. If you want to push the frontier in developer tooling, we want to work with you.

The Role


We’re looking for our first Senior Analytics Engineer! As a founding member of our Data team, reporting to our Head of Data, this individual will play a critical role in improving our data availability, data quality, and data documentation. This is a high-impact role that is responsible for ensuring that all key stakeholders have easy access to clean, reliable data.

What You'll Do:

  • Be a trusted partner to all stakeholders across the organization
  • Have a comprehensive understanding of the needs of the data users across the organization and then transform that understanding into clear, repeatable, data models
  • Maintain a strong understanding of data quality testing
  • Build, optimize, monitor, and maintain data pipelines

A few additional notes:

Location: This role is flexible - work some days from home and some days from our office in the SoMa neighborhood of San Francisco, or be in another state entirely.

Visas: Courier cannot apply for new visas for candidates but can transfer existing visas (please allow up to 8 weeks for the transfer after an offer letter is signed.)

About Courier
