2 months agoNew York, NY

About Us:
YipitData is the leading market research firm for the disruptive economy, and recently raised up to $475M from The Carlyle Group at a valuation over $1B.

We analyze billions of data points every day to provide accurate, detailed insights on ridesharing, e-commerce marketplaces, payments and more. Our on-demand insights team uses proprietary technology to identify, license, clean and analyze the data many of the world’s largest investment funds and corporations depend on.

We have amazing reviews (and a 5-star rating!) on Glassdoor and are one of Inc’s Best Workplaces - a fast-growing technology company with offices located in NYC (where we are based in), Hong Kong, and Shanghai, backed by Norwest Venture Partners and The Carlyle Group with a strong culture focused on mastery, ownership, and transparency.

About The Role:

In 2019 YipitData launched a new business unit providing alternative data insights  to corporations. Our Corporate business is growing quickly and we are expanding our data team by hiring a Data Consultant who will be key to the success of the initiative. 

Our Data Consultant role is a fantastic opportunity for candidates with 2-4 years of experience as you will help scale our Corporate business from the ground up and build the core skills required to succeed at the intersection of tech, data, and client-facing work. 

This is a remote-friendly opportunity that can sit in NYC (where our headquarter is located), or anywhere in the US. 

US work authorization is required for this position.

In this role, you’ll gain experience in:

  • New product development: this early stage initiative gives you a unique chance to collaborate on product discovery, identify and empathize with customer pain points, and define the value proposition of our insights products
  • Programming and data: learn (or sharpen) big data analysis skills, develop compelling data-driven analyses, and present to clients and prospects
    • Learn and master Python, SQL, Pyspark, Tableau, Databricks, Airflow, and other leading big data analysis tools
  • Sales and client strategy: on a given day, you might help to develop a sales pitch, brainstorm product positioning, or guide contract negotiations, all while ensuring an amazing experience in supporting our existing clients

You are likely to succeed if:

  • You have 2-4 years of experience in an analytical and client-facing role within an existing B2B product team, management consulting, large FS institutions, economic consulting, or at a data provider
  • You have an entrepreneurial spirit and are excited to help build a new business from the ground up
  • You are willing to persevere through the highs and lows of creating something new
  • You are empathetic and have strong interpersonal skills and high emotional intelligence
  • You enjoy working with clients and understanding & addressing their pain points
  • You are a methodical problem solver
  • You want to learn to code or hone your existing coding skills
  • You have an ability to manage many different priorities

What We Offer:

  • Our compensation package includes equity and highly competitive salary
  • We care about your personal life and we mean it.  We offer flexible work hours, unlimited vacation, generous 401K match and parental leave policy, team bonding events, a wellness budget, learning reimbursement, and more!
  • Your growth at YipitData is determined by the impact that you are making, not by tenure, facetime, or office politics.  Everyone at YipitData is empowered to learn, self-improve, and master their skills in an environment focused on ownership, respect, and trust.
