About the Data Analytics team
Varo’s Data Analytics team partners with stakeholders across the organization to guide decision-making with data. The team explores our rich datasets to identify key trends, propose experiments, and provide a nuanced understanding of what the data are (and are not) saying. We hail from diverse quantitative backgrounds and are driven by a sense of ownership and the shared mission to translate rigor into impact.
About the role
We’re seeking a senior contributor to lead our analytics efforts spanning marketing and growth. As the team lead for these areas, you will play a key role in crystallizing and executing a roadmap of initiatives aimed at propelling Varo’s customer acquisition and engagement efforts in partnership with stakeholders from across the organization (Marketing, Product, Growth, Engineering). Achieving success will require drawing equally on your solid background in causal inference, statistics, and machine learning to derive meaningful insights, and the ability to influence partners from a range of backgrounds.
This role is ideal for someone who is a seasoned individual contributor, looking to take the first steps into people management. While your initial responsibilities will be individual in nature, you can expect to hire a team of analysts within the first 6-12 months of joining Varo. Join us in building the future of banking.
