What We Do

The data science team focuses on helping drive business outcomes across Calm. The business problem comes first (what are we trying to solve?), and the analysis follows (how do we best solve this problem?). Sometimes the solution is straightforward and sometimes it is highly complex—we always rely on data to drive our solutions.  

What You’ll Do

As a Senior Analytics Engineer you will take a leading role designing and developing scalable data models that power our data-as-a-product offerings for external customers, as well as data products serving internal analysis, experimentation and reporting across our entire business. You will collaborate with key stakeholders across our product, engineering, operations and data science teams to understand our various first and third party data sources and translate this knowledge into performant analytical data models.

You will:

  • Lead the development of data models powering our data-as-a-product offering for B2B customers
  • Design and build data models to enable experimentation, machine-learning, analysis and reporting
  • Collaborate with partners across technical and non-technical teams to bridge the gap between data and action 
  • Inform key decision makers about the state of the business through internal data products
  • Partner with data scientists to drive strategic decisions through data-driven analysis
  • Own the development, testing, documentation and evangelism of our core data models
  • Utilize analytical tools such as Mode and Tableau to help our business and data science partners to build actionable insights
  • Develop strong cross-functional partnerships across Calm to drive success

  • Building an efficient and scalable data pipeline for high-volume events in the data warehouse

Who You Are

  • Extensive experience with data modeling and analyzing large scale data with modern cloud computing platforms. Experience with dbt strongly preferred
  • Strong proficiency in SQL
  • Experience with data pipeline development tools in a modern data stack such as dbt, Databricks, Redshift, BigQuery, and Airflow
  • Prior experience in Python
  • Ability to translate non-technical business requirements into technical solutions, and translate technical solutions to business outcomes
  • Strong relationship management and presentation skills
  • Hands-on experiencing building data documentation and testing practices
  • Pragmatism: balancing scrappiness and rigor

Nice to Haves
