This is a unique opportunity to join a high-growth #techforgood company.

As our Data Analyst, you will play a key role in supporting the Product team optimize the Social Nature platform, and take our user experience to the next level.

At Social Nature, we use data-driven insights to fuel strategic growth for our platform and clients. We believe that data should always be used as a starting point to identify opportunities, drive decisions, and measure the success of every initiative we embark on.

To help with this, we're looking for an outstanding Data Analyst (starting with a contract, but with the opportunity to convert to a permanent role in the future) – someone who can help us redefine our platform tracking and reporting system, provide strategic data-driven recommendations to drive business goals, and collaborate with internal partners to drive cross-functional success.

About Us

At Social Nature, we're on a mission to change consumer habits by offering better-for-you brands an online product testing platform to get quick feedback on their new products and concepts. And we offer our community members the opportunity to sample and give feedback on the most innovative products.

Over the last 5 years, our small but mighty 20 person team has grown Social Nature to over half a million product testers across North America and has helped launch and grow over 500 sustainable brands. We've recently raised growth financing from the co-founder of Shopify, the founder of VEGA, and Active Impact Investments (a company investing in companies tackling the UN sustainability goals). And in 2020, we were proud to be recognized as one of the top 6 high-performance cultures by SupportingLines, a high-performance culture award.

What You'll Do

  • Optimize the current platform tracking system using Google Analytics and Metabase
  • Develop and maintain new monthly performance reports and dashboards
  • Support cross-functional teams with ad hoc data requests, looking for ways to improve and streamline existing processes
  • Work with the Product and Engineering teams to finalize analytics requirements for new platform features, and ensure they are implemented according to specs
  • Monitor the platform analytics and report on the performance of new features and experiments
  • Provide strategic data-driven recommendations to optimize the user experience and drive business goals

To Be Successful In This Role, You'll Bring

  • 3+ years of professional experience as a Data Analyst for a tech product company, management consulting company, or digital agency
  • Knowledge of digital data technologies (DMPs, Google Analytics, digital pixel tracking, site tagging, etc.)
  • Deep knowledge of PostgreSQL and Excel (Macros, VBA lookups)
  • Strong analytical, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills
  • Excellent data visualization skills
  • Great verbal and written communication skills

Why You Should Work With Us

Make a difference with your work — align your work with your principles and contribute to building a more sustainable future. Did you know that each year, the average person uses about 200 products? That's 200 choices you're making about what you put in your body, in your children's bodies, and in the environment. Join us means you'll help more people make the switch to healthy and sustainable products on their next shopping trip.

Grow your career — as part of a small team, your opinions count, your ideas can be actioned quickly, and you're a key player in our success.

Enjoy our flexible work environment — slot in as much face-to-face time with your team as you want in our beautiful Gastown office, or do your best work in slippers. Throughout COVID-19 we've encouraged people to work from home. Currently, some of our team members use our office for a change of scenery, and when it's safe to do so we'll encourage our entire team to use our office to collaborate and connect from time to time.

Take part in team events — we believe that a team that plays together stays together. Throughout COVID-19 we've had to get more creative with our team events hosting virtual social hours, 30-day health & sustainability challenges, online trivia/ board games events, and even Zoom cooking challenges. And each year we host a wellness retreat offsite that's focused on your personal development and growth.
