Meet Gorgias, the customer service platform designed for ecommerce merchants, and built to provide amazing experience to shoppers at scale on Shopify, BigCommerce, and Magento. Our product empowers merchants to manage all their customer service in one place over email, live chat, voice, Facebook, Instagram, and SMS.

Everything we do is for our customers, and we’re currently serving over 12,000+ ecommerce merchants, including : Steve Madden, Timbuk2, Decathlon, and Sports Illustrated. They love us for our innovative product, our focus on their ecommerce needs, and, of course, our lightning-fast customer service response time.

We raised $25 million in our Series B round in December 2020 and $30 million in our Series C round in 2022. We more than doubled in size in every meaningful way: annual recurring revenue, the size of our customer base, and the size of our Gorgias team, for starters.

We’re still growing fast and looking for new teammates who want to grow with us.

About the Data Analytics team

  • Data Analytics is a cross-functional team that works hand-in-hand with all of the other business teams (Go-to-market Marketing, Sales, Success & Support, Product) and also interacts with the dev teams.

  • Our core role is to ensure that data flows accurately and efficiently across all of these teams and the tools they use to maintain and improve our data stack.

  • In addition to this, we build complex data models and perform data analysis to provide insights.

  • The Data Analytics team is also in charge of building data products that maximize each team's efficiency: lead qualification models, optimizing deal routing, predicting churn, automated lead enrichment, etc.

The team itself is composed of two sub-teams:

  • Business Intelligence helps the rest of the company by providing insights into performance and by giving them the resources needed to achieve their goals. This includes things like providing or editing data marts, helping build dashboards, and more.

  • Analytics Engineering is responsible for the management and maintenance of the Data Platform, including all data pipelines and assets. Their primary goal is to ensure that accurate and easily accessible data is provided at scale to end users. They also play a key role in advising and training Data Analysts on analytics best practices and maintaining up-to-date documentation and knowledge sharing.

If you are naturally data curious, excited by high-quality data modeling, experienced in improving the availability and usability of datasets, and motivated by having an impact on the business where you work, we want to hear from you.
