This is a unique opportunity to gain experience at a big data startup! If you love data, want an opportunity to grow with a company, and enjoy working in an exciting environment with smart, down-to earth people, you’re in the right place.

Job Description:

• Classifying data utilizing our unique in-house software tools

Who you are:
You take pride in your attention to detail. You’re naturally analytical, and don’t mind spending your time doing repetitive tasks to achieve your goals. Speaking of goals, you evaluate your success based on results, not the time you spent trying to achieve your objectives. You’ve got a great work ethic, and just as importantly, a great attitude. Your consistency doesn’t mean you’re complacent; you exhibit a slight distaste for the status quo. You proactively identify solutions to problems we didn’t even know existed and drive to implement them without much guidance. You like to bring structure into confusing situations, but that doesn’t mean you would pass an opportunity to wear jeans to work. You want to collaborate with smart, humble people, and enjoy coming in to work each day.

General requirements:
Some general requirements:
• Familiarity with Microsoft Excel and desire to learn (Proficiency will set you apart)
• Ability to communicate clearly and effectively (written/verbal)
• Comfortable with daily deadlines
• Available to work full time or ~20 hours/week
• Associate/Bachelor’s degree or currently in-progress
• Experience with eCommerce will differentiate you (Even if you’re just a pro shopper!)
• Prior data entry or quantitative experience is a plus
