Who are you?

You believe big data helps businesses solve real-world problems. You are familiar, but not necessarily an expert with the four general data science umbrellas of responsibility: data ingestion, data normalization, analyzing/machine learning, data visualization. You like to explore datasets to find insights that nobody else sees. You can communicate these ideas through visualizations. You think machine learning is cool. You aren’t bound to a framework or tool and feel comfortable picking up something new if it’s right for the job. You are self-motivated and want to own the delivery of a major component of our offering.

What will you do?

You will have a high level of ownership of the Blackline Analytics platform. You will be responsible for driving the platform for our customers as well as internal questions and discovery. Your job will include everything from producing reports for customers, garnering insights to reduce quality issues in the field and generating ad-hoc reports to help drive sales. Your insights will help us evolve our products and services by leveraging large and diverse datasets generated by customers from around the world.
