You’ll aid in preparing and presenting materials that will be in prospects and clients’ hands, guiding their decisions and next steps.

  • Support efforts to create repeatable, scalable analytics (e.g. elegant code and output documentation; developing, validating and implementing dashboards) 
  • Describe data and findings in an easy-to-understand way that is accessible to our clients, the market and a broad audience
  • Translate data into polished Google Slides that communicate a compelling narrative
  • Partner with cross-functional stakeholders to prepare and deliver client-ready presentations

  • Experience with SQL is required and experience with Business Intelligence tools (e.g, Looker) is highly valued. 
  • Intermediate experience with Excel, Powerpoint, Google Sheets, and Google Slides is required.
  • M.S. (with a minimum of 5 years relevant work experience) OR Ph.D. (with a minimum of 3 years relevant work experience) in behavioral science or a related field (e.g., business, quantitative psychology). Relevant work experience in applied data analysis, demonstrated expertise in translating analytical results insights from science-to-practice and into client-facing figures, charts, and insights.
  • Work collaboratively with internal BetterUp partners to understand analytics requirements and the problem at hand, define / execute the analytics approach, and communicate the insights and recommendations.
  • Challenge conventional thinking when it comes to measuring how BetterUp drives value for our partner organizations.
  • Ability to easily tailor the depth of presentations based on the audience.
  • Comfort with and experience navigating ambiguity (e.g., taking a broad dataset and pulling compelling data narratives with little guidance)
  • Strong partnership and communication skills.
  • Attention to detail and a high bar for craftsmanship.
  • High growth mindset and work to learn attitude.
