Senior Business Intelligence Engineer
We are the company behind WordPress.com, Jetpack, and WooCommerce. We’re looking for a Senior Business Intelligence Engineer to join our analytics team. As the data landscape evolves, so do our roles
As a Senior Business Intelligence Engineer on our team, you will:
- Design and curate intelligent reporting to identify changes, trends, and risks to the business, incorporating current critical metrics and anomaly detection.
- Build strong relationships with teams inside and outside our data organization to understand existing needs and find opportunities to use analytics to accelerate business growth.
- Make our data available: you’ll work to design database models and build ETL pipelines via Airflow.
- Make our data actionable: you’ll prototype and develop powerful Looker models to create smart dashboards that help our product and business teams succeed.
- Perform ad hoc analyses to better understand customer behavior, needs, and individual test results.
- Always be raising data quality. That includes auditing sources, documenting issues, driving resolutions together with other teams, and implementing well-documented, performant, and tested transformations.
We’d love to hear from you if:
- You’re proficient in SQL: window functions and CTEs are part of our daily work.
- You know and love working on business intelligence solutions: we use Looker as our platform, but experience with a different tool and an ability to learn can go a long way.
- You care deeply about the user experience when it comes to dashboards and reports and have crafted creative solutions to identify and surface trends, changes, and anomalies in reporting.
- You have an interest in data science – concepts of causality, experimentation, or applied statistics.
- You have worked in a Hadoop ecosystem before (in the day to day, we use Impala, Hive, and Spark).
- You have experience working across teams to deliver analytics solutions and are familiar with common metrics of software as a service (SaaS) business.
- You have excellent verbal and written communication skills in English.
- You’re able to communicate clearly with and about data to technical and non-technical partners.
- You’re highly collaborative and experienced in working with business owners, executives, developers, and creatives to discuss data, strategy, and tests.

Diversity & Inclusion at Automattic
We’re improving diversity in the tech industry. At Automattic, we want people to love their work and show respect and empathy to all. We encourage differences and strive to increase participation from traditionally underrepresented groups. Our D&I committee involves Automatticians across the company and drives grassroots change. For example, this group has helped facilitate private online spaces for affiliated Automatticians to gather and helps run a monthly D&I People Lab series for further learning. Diversity and Inclusion is a priority at Automattic, though our dedication influences far more than just Automatticians: We make our products freely available and translate our products into and offer customer support in numerous languages. We require unconscious bias training for our hiring teams and ensure our products are accessible across different bandwidths and devices. Read more about our dedication to diversity and inclusion
