What's the opportunity? 🤔

At Intercom, the Analytics & Data Science team partners with every function in the organization in order to help teams make data-informed decisions and take data-informed actions. We're highly quantitative individuals who love to turn data into insights and communicate our findings fearlessly, and we're looking for people with a similar mindset who are constantly curious, driven to understand our business better, and committed to creating value.
 
In this role, you will partner with go-to-market teams across Intercom (including Sales, Marketing, Finance, and R&D) to measure new initiatives and make data-driven recommendations around go-to-market strategy. In addition to being strong analytically, we’re looking for someone who has experience proactively surfacing recommendations and insights, who's comfortable prioritizing work across multiple stakeholders, and who can work across the analytics and data stack in order to solve problems. If this sounds like you, we would love to hear from you!
 
To give you a sense of some specific projects you might work on, here are a few of our recent workstreams: monitoring changes in the health of the new business funnel, understanding how users respond to new pricing, analyzing the customer signup experience, measuring the performance of paid advertising campaigns, prioritizing the leads our sales team should reach out to, and many more.

What will I be doing? 🚀

  • Evaluating the performance of our go-to-market strategy by analyzing customer funnels and metrics (CAC, LTV, churn, etc.)
  • Monitoring the state of the business on a regular basis and generating data-driven hypotheses and action items in order drive business impact
  • Partnering with other go-to-market teams at Intercom to help them better understand their functional areas, increase familiarity with and use of our data, and set a high bar for analytics across the organization
  • Building data science models to accelerate the business by providing deeper insights into prospect and customer behaviors
  • Creating dashboards that allow internal consumers to gain insight into the performance of their functional areas
  • Constructing reusable data pipelines for company-wide use

What skills do I need? 📖

  • 4+ years of work experience in analytics/data science or a directly related field – some of which should be in a technology environment
  • A proven track record of initiating and delivering actionable analyses/recommendations in order to drive business impact
  • An understanding of SaaS business models and key metrics
  • Some experience building data science models to provide deeper insights
  • Excellent communication skills (technical and non-technical) and comfort working with high-level stakeholders
  • Ability to work autonomously in a dynamic environment
