The Data Analytics team operates in a nimble working style, flexing between a variety of business questions and data needs at the company. We are asked to investigate and solve big questions other companies have yet to find solutions for such as digital identity management and understanding customers fully based on their mobile data. You will be part of an innovative and fast growing team that pushes to provide access, choice, and control to millions of customers.

As a Data Analyst, your goal is to deeply understand internal client needs and to build out data products that provide the company with real-time and in-depth insights about our diverse customer base.

This role will be based out of our Santa Monica, CA office.

In this role you will:

  • Be a key resource: become an expert on Tala’s data infrastructure, analytics tools, and best practices in data-driven research for the company
  • Be curious: investigate new data sets, identify strategic opportunities for improving servicing for our customers, and share your findings with our partner teams
  • Be a multiplier: build out new data flows as our product changes, and produce high-value, timely analytics based the unique aspects of each of our markets

What we’re looking for:

  • BA/BS in a quantitative field
  • Expert in at least one analytics language (ex. Python, R)
  • Proficient in SQL, GitHub, bash commands
  • Experience interning or working in a data-intensive role (or equivalent experience)

Perfect candidates would have:

  • Experience with multiple types of messy data in a business environment
  • Experience in emerging markets (either personally or in professional scope)
  • Modeling and machine learning expertise outside of school or Kaggle
  • Ability to juggle multiple projects effectively in a fast-paced environment
