Pluralsight’s Experience Strategy team is charged with providing data-driven insights and strategic recommendations to shape the future of the learning experience that we deliver daily to 1M users across 150+ countries.

  • A teacher. Evangelizing user engagement analysis, and helping others see the vision.

What you’ll own:

  • Make data-driven recommendations to the Product organization on how to improve the user experience and business performance based on an understanding of the entire ecosystem, not just one feature or data point.
  • Serve as a quantitative balance throughout the entire product development process (research, design, implement, and iteration).
  • Define, build, analyze, and monitor new KPIs that inform product strategy.
  • Analyze and report on user behavior to non-technical business partners.
  • Collect, process, clean, transform and validate data from a variety of sources so that it can be used for analysis by the team and the business.
  • Coordinate, validate, and monitor Adobe Analytics site tracking parameters/implementation.
  • Understand Pluralsight business, product strategy, data, and tools.
  • Create and validate ETL pipelines based on client side data to generate views/tables.
  • Develop, document, and implement data models that drive deep and holistic understanding of how users engage with our ecosystem via a mix of deterministic/statistical methods, models, and algorithms using Python, R, or Scala

Experience you’ll need:

  • Ideally, BA/BS degree in either a CS, Applied Mathematics, Statistics, Economics, or another quantitative discipline.
  • Extensive experience with Adobe Analytics or Google Analytics reporting consoles.
  • Solid understanding of client-side analytics tracking and event/metadata tagging strategies.
  • Experience debugging differences between the client-side data layer and the analytics reporting console. 
  • Ability to understand and articulate how data points and product features interrelate and impact other larger systems or user behaviors.
  • Experience with data management platforms (e.g. AWS, Hadoop, PostgreSQL, BigQuery)
  • Expertise writing, tuning and maintaining complex SQL statements
  • Expertise in a programming language (Python, Scala, Java) for statistical analysis, data pipeline management, and analytics implementation.
  • Ability to programmatically manipulate and analyze large complex data sets from a variety of sources. This includes both ad hoc analysis as well as long form presentations.
  • Experience with data warehousing architecture, modeling, pipeline and ETL processes and tools.
  • Excellent at communicating/breaking-down complex data and its implications to technical team members and non-technical business partners.
  • Some experience using Tableau.
  • Ability to prioritize tasks and projects in an environment with sporadic needs
