Workstream is a mission-driven company that believes in building premium, modern software solutions for local businesses. There are 2.7 billion hourly workers, who make up 80% of the global workforce, but they've been heavily underserved by technology and deserve better. We help local businesses around you hire, manage, and retain qualified workers.
Our customers include leading brands from multiple sectors, including Burger King, Carl's Jr./Hardee's, IHOP, KFC, and Culvers. At series B, we are quickly expanding our product portfolio. We are backed by legendary VCs and industry experts like Founders Fund, BOND, and Coatue.

We are looking for an individual to join our Data team who is conversant in data analytics and data science, eager to democratize data by building business centric datasets and passionate about extracting data insights to grow our business.The selected candidate will partner closely with our Revenue Operations team and also directly with founders and leaders in Sales, Marketing & CS leaders as a trusted thought partner. Together, we’re going to tackle a lot of unknown challenges, figure things out, and just #shipit!

You will infuse our business decision making with data and ML-powered insights; and bring a data-driven perspective on growth. You will collaborate with the data and infrastructure teams to evolve our data stack.

Day in the Life:

A rough estimate of prioritizing time for the role includes:

  • GTM Intelligence (50%) - Partner with our GTM and Product teams to drive increasingly sophisticated insights into levers for growth. Potential initiatives include new product & new feature adoption, churn prediction, upsell/cross-sell targeting, customer health scores and forecasting.
  • Analytics (30%) - You will take point on our company's analytics ecosystem, including GTM (go-to-market) team, EPD (engineering, product, design) team, and G&A (general and administrative; e.g. finance, etc.) team.

  • Data Science (20%) - You will partner with our data scientists to architect, build and maintain the data stack for Workstream, and implement ML-powered business analytics. This includes Python programming and building model pipelines with MetaFlow.

Stepping back, this is an opportunity to create a truly data-driven culture across Workstream. One that is cognizant of how to structure rigorous tests, interpret their outcomes, and take clear data driven actions.
