  • Build and automate reports, as well as iteratively develop and prototype dashboards to provide insights at scale
  • Think critically, test hypotheses, and leverage data to test and iterate on new product features and business strategies
  • Quickly become an expert in multiple facets of the business, including marketing, product, and operations
