Job Description

Do you have the curiosity, passion, and a collaborative spirit to help us revolutionize the database market?

Fauna is the data API for modern applications. With Fauna, developers can simplify code, reduce costs, and ship applications faster by replacing their database infrastructure with a highly productive and programmable data API that combines the power of custom business logic with the ease of GraphQL. The underlying globally distributed storage and compute engine is fast, consistent, and reliable, with a modern security infrastructure. Itself a serverless offering, Fauna is quick to get started with and lets developers experience freedom from database operations at any scale.

We're disrupting a $60B+ operational database market, growing quickly, and looking to hire, develop and empower the best! You’ll be working with a talented team of people who have built highly successful companies and globally-distributed systems at companies such as AWS, Google, Microsoft, Okta, Oracle, Cloudera, MongoDB, NewRelic and Twitter.

We're looking for a Senior Data Analyst to own data and analytics for the whole company. While we do have a strong analytics infrastructure in place, this role will be critical for laying the groundwork for a much larger analytics team as Fauna continues to grow. This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic analyst who is excited by the idea of working on challenging data projects with significant impact. The ideal candidate has strong technical and data skills, as well as business and strategic acumen.

As a part of the Product team, reporting to the VP of product, you will work with teams across the company and use data to answer our most challenging business questions. As a storyteller and evangelist of data-driven thought leadership you will create reports and dashboards and conduct analysis to create insights and recommendations. You will frequently interact with the executive team and will have impact across the company.


What You Will Do:

  • Work with Leadership, Product, Marketing, Engineering, and customer success teams to identify, understand, and answer key questions that will help fuel growth and improve customer outcomes
  • Present findings and recommendations to executives, business, and engineering stakeholders
  • Perform complex data analysis to answer Fauna’s most challenging questions
  • Build, maintain and analyze dashboards and reports
  • Partner with Engineering to manage our company-wide analytics suite (i.e., Redash, Athena, Google Analytics)
  • Report on and monitor key company metrics as you analyze root causes of changes in metrics and communicate findings to stakeholders
  • Design and implement analytics best practices across all functional areas including metric design, feature logging, reporting, A/B testing, customer journey funnel analysis, and outcomes measurements



What You Will Bring:

  • Data-driven mindset with a degree in a quantitative discipline such as Computer Science, Statistics, Engineering, Mathematics or Economics
  • 4+ years of work experience in analyzing large, multi-dimensional data sets, working closely with both product and engineering teams
  • Fluency in SQL and Excel; experience with a statistical programming language (e.g., R, Python) is desirable
  • Exceptional written and verbal communication skills to influence cross-functional teams
  • Experience building dashboards and defining KPIs pulling from multiple data sources, ideally within a startup environment
  • Experience with visualization tools such as Tableau, and web analytics tools such as Google Analytics
  • Experience designing and analyzing experiments (Split testing, Multivariant testing, statistical significance).
  • Work in a cross-functional and collaborative role spanning several teams such as product, design, engineering, marketing, sales, and support
