Data Operations Specialist

About Us:

New datasets are being created every day and investors need to incorporate them to remain competitive.

YipitData is the go-to, 200+ person data team for hundreds of the largest institutional investors and corporations in the world. We identify, screen, license, clean, and analyze alternative data to help clients answer their key questions.

We have amazing reviews (and a 5-star rating!) on Glassdoor and are one of Inc’s Best Workplaces – a fast-growing technology company based in NYC, backed by Norwest Venture Partners and with a strong culture focused on mastery, ownership, and purpose.

About The Role:

We have been growing at record-speed, thriving in a disruptive environment as our data-driven research service has become more valuable than ever. As a Data Operations Specialist, you will be key to ensuring our company and team successfully scale by working closely with our Data Product team (50+ analysts) to determine the best processes and tools, create best practices, ensure our team is following these guidelines, and scale these processes as our team continues to grow rapidly.

In this role, you will get exposure to operations, strategy, product management, project management, data analysis, and technical skills (SQL, Python) as you develop standardized operational processes and tools for the Data team. You will own projects end-to-end from discovery and user interviews to implementation, documentation, training, and measuring outcomes.

This is a fantastic opportunity for individuals with 1-4 years of experience who are interested in working for a team in the tech, data, and investment worlds that YipitData intersects. Anyone with operational experience, strong analytical and organizational skills, and an interest in helping us rapidly scale our team is encouraged to apply. This role is part of the Product Operations team. Our team’s goal is to ensure the entire Data Product team has the knowledge, tools, and resources to scale rapidly and efficiently by making everyone experts at what they do, maximize their impact, and set them up for successful careers. This role sits in NYC (where our headquarters is located).

As Our Data Operations Specialist You Will:

Own projects and maintain project timelines from discovery to implementation
Work on projects affecting data product analysts, managers, team leads, and other technical and non-technical teams at the company (Research, Revenue,
Engineering, Legal, etc.)
Conduct user interviews and shadowing to identify current processes, understand stakeholder needs, and gather feedback
Determine the most efficient and effective operational processes and tools to help our team and company scale successfully
Create documentation and maintain institutional knowledge resources
Integrate best practices into new hire training and development
Measure outcomes from your standardization efforts and continue to improve these processes as we scale

You are excited about owning projects and implementing processes that will help us achieve our massive scaling goals over the next few years
You thrive in fast-paced, dynamic environments and can manage many parallel processes at the same time
You are an innovative problem solver that resists “this is how it’s always been done” thinking.

You are interested in learning or further developing your technical skills such as SQL and Python
You have strong attention to detail and organizational skills
You are a methodical problem solver
You are a collaborative team player with strong interpersonal skills
You are able to come up with creative solutions to new problems
