Docker is a remote first company with employees across Europe, APAC and the Americas that simplifies the lives of developers who are making world-changing apps. We raised our Series C funding in March 2022 for $105M at a $2.1B valuation. We continued to see exponential revenue growth last year. Join us for a whale of a ride!

The Senior Data Analyst will analyze and transform data from various sources using tools like Snowflake and DBT, developing and maintaining robust data models that support ongoing and ad-hoc analysis. You will be responsible for creating and managing comprehensive dashboards and reports using Looker, effectively communicating findings to corresponding stakeholders.

This includes refining complex, ill-defined questions and objectives, owning the success of your projects from inception to completion, proactively tracking your work in a timely manner, creating tickets in our product backlog for upcoming sprints, and defining, scoping, and delegating milestones for junior team members to support you.

Additionally, you will utilize reverse ETL tools like Census to integrate insights directly into our operational systems, stay current with industry trends and technologies to continuously enhance our data capabilities, and help improve self-serve analytics and our data-driven culture by building robust user-facing documentation inside our Analytics Knowledge base for documenting key processes, metrics, and conceptual data models to ease understanding and foster alignment across the organization.
