  • Experimentation: Develop test plans, define success metrics, and ensure accurate results methodologically, technically, and statistically. Lead research efforts to inform the content team of outside trends and offerings to drive strategy as needed. Design controlled experiments to test hypotheses about new features or content offerings.
  • Goaling and KPIs: Work “full-stack” to define KPIs and goal metrics with cross-functional stakeholders, forecast outcomes, and measure pacing against those targets.  
  • Business Performance Reporting, Visualization, and Regression Management: Be the primary partner for cross-functional stakeholders to understand the performance of content on the platform. When content engagement is ahead or behind expectations, dig in to drive meaningful, actionable insights that help the business performance improve or double-down on success.

Develop frameworks that improve our understanding of Glo users and effectively communicate learnings across the content team.

Work closely with Data Engineers to ensure adequate data is available for analysis, and collaborate with engineering and platform teams to implement, QA, and monitor our logging and metrics.

You are a proactive thinker who thrives off of being challenged, day in and day out. 
  • Technical Expert: Finally, you have the technical chops that can only come from years of work as a Data Analyst. You can perform critical analysis with awareness of your own bias or expectation, as well as a deep understanding of tools, formulas and models that comes from hands-on experience.
