A bit about us

Lever was founded eight years ago to tackle the most strategic challenge that companies face: how to recruit and hire top talent. We’re building the next generation of hiring software that companies like Netflix, Atlassian, KPMG, and McGraw-Hill Education rely on to grow their teams. We’ve rethought the talent acquisition paradigm and are the innovation leaders in our space.

We’re extraordinarily proud of the company we’ve built so far (not to mention humbled to be recognized as the #1 place to work in San Francisco, as well as a top workplace in the entire United States.). Our people are Lever’s biggest competitive advantage.

The challenge

As a Business Analyst, you’ll identify trends and actionable insights from our data and use analytics to develop recommendations on how our Customer Experience & Solutions teams can move the needle. This will strengthen the relationship between Marketing, Sales, and Customer Success and result in better alignment across our Go-To-Market organization.

The opportunity

You’ll be instrumental in supporting our quickly growing revenue organization and building out the analytics framework that will scale Lever to the next level. The work you do will impact the way our marketing team measures performance and makes decisions on where to invest for the highest ROI.

You will use your prior analytics experience to dive deep into our reporting and identify the levers that drive our business. In your past, you’ve reached the limits of reporting in Salesforce, hit the row limits in Excel, and taught yourself (or obtained certs in) SQL to keep going past them; at Lever, you’ll put those skills to the test.

The team

Lever’s Revenue Ops organization is a tight-knit team with diverse backgrounds -- but what we have in common is the ability to take complex problems, break them down to their individual parts, and put them back together in a way that delivers insight or drives business results. You would be a core part of the team that helps us provide those insights.

The skill set

  • 5+ years of experience in data analysis and measuring performance of different functions, preferably in a B2B SaaS company.
  • Analytical and quantitative problem-solving skills and the ability to communicate complex ideas effectively.
  • Ability to remove your own roadblocks and identify what you need to succeed.
  • Advanced experience on reporting with SQL and Excel/Sheets is a must. Experience with visualization and BI tools like Tableau, Metabase, Domo, or Looker. Familiarity with Marketo, Salesforce data architecture is a major plus.
