Loop is in an unparalleled position to provide data to our merchants that no one else is able to replicate. Data will be at the core of everything we do and some of our most critical work as we grow. Our future is to create data-based products that use modern techniques for delivering not only data but invaluable insights. We’ll identify problems our merchants don’t even know they have and use our data to create solutions that thrill merchants with their ability to predict and forecast their customer’s needs.
As an Analytics Engineer at Loop, you’ll significantly impact our ability to solve merchant problems and fulfill merchant needs. Our cloud-based data warehouse fuels the great work our Analytics and ML teams do. Your job is to model the raw data into clean, well-defined, analytics-ready datasets, acting as the bridge between Data Engineering, Analytics, and ML and championing scale across our data architecture.
We’ve listed what we think you’ll be spending your time on. We’re growing fast, and growth means the challenges we’ll work on together will change as we lead Loop through new and different phases.
This is an indispensable role with us, so we’ll be looking for you to have examples of when you’ve tackled these challenges throughout your career. We’ve laid out the experience we think is important to set you up for success in this role. But, we appreciate that different humans will solve problems in different ways, so we don’t expect you to fit exactly in a box of requirements.

With our Blended Working Environment, you have options ranging from joining our HQ office (in Columbus, Ohio), opting into a Hub (a location with 4+ team members), or staying totally secluded (our version of remote). Our team is spread across the United States, select provinces in Canada (Ontario & British Columbia), and the United Kingdom. Wherever you live, you can create the work environment that best matches your preferences and lifestyle.
