Rent the Runway – Business Analyst/Sr. Analyst
Headquartered in New York City, Rent the Runway is a VC-backed e-commerce startup. The “Netflix for fashion”, Rent the Runway provides a rental platform for designer goods at 90% off retail prices.
We are in an exciting period of hyper-growth, and seeking strong talent to support the critical data and analysis needs for the organization.
Take a minute to contemplate the complexity of the rental business and associated processes – from buying the right inventory consumers want to rent at the right time, to systems that predict inventory availability in the future, to taking and fulfilling the reservations as smoothly as possible, to receiving back every unit that gets shipped out and processing it to get ready for the next cycle as fast as possible… you get the idea.
For anyone who enjoys untangling logistical complexity and solving difficult problems using the power data, Rent the Runway is offering your dream job.
As part of this role within the Analytics team, you will:
- Work closely and cross-functionally with product, inventory planning, operations and customer service teams to develop a deep understanding of the entire user experience from a numbers perspective
- Design, develop and track key metrics that capture the quality of the customer experience
- Based on deep-dive analysis, ambitiously seek and execute initiatives to continuously improve the customer experience
- Academic background in Mathematics, Computer Science, Statistics, Engineering, Physics, Economics, or a related quantitative field
- High proficiency in databases (e.g: MySQL), query languages (e.g: SQL), and in scripting tools (e.g: Perl, Python);
- Experience with packages (like R) to perform quantitative analyses is a plus
- Experience with a consumer-facing business and inventory, operations and customer service functions highly desired
- Passion for data, and its ability to drive the business
- Ability to work independently and take responsibility in managing a function that is core to the company’s growth
