Hi there!

We're looking for someone who loves numbers and business. You might be called a statistician, a business analyst, a data scientist or number cruncher. No matter what, you love using stats to make businesses better. If this sounds interesting, then read on...

About You

You love using numbers to figure out how businesses work. Most of what you'll do on a daily basis is helping answer key questions about the business by extracting data sets, then running analysis on the data set to find out things we didn't know about our customers or our business.

You love finding the hidden meaning in numbers. You'll come up with questions like "What are the key features that encourage users to upgrade?" or "What sort of usage patterns lead to long-term users?" and then use the answers to those question to help make decisions that will have big impacts on the business.

You love doing things efficiently. At Zapier, the work you do will have a disproportionate impact on the business. We believe in systems and processes that let us scale our impact to be larger than ourselves.

You love to set your own course. At Zapier, we have quick team meetings each week and one-on-one meetings every month and then we go make things happen. You get to make things happen without someone saying so.

You've done this job or similar before and can demonstrate that your reporting and insights have had an impact on your company or organization's bottom line. You have a strong background in statistics.

Things You Might Do

Zapier is a startup, so you'll likely get your hands dirty in a little bit of everything. That said, here are some things you'll get to lead:

  • Ask questions about the performance of various business functions
  • Extract data sets from various data sources (MySQL, KISSMetrics, Google Analytics, RethinkDB, etc)
  • Run analysis of extracted data sets in your favorite tools (R, Excel, etc.)
  • Work with the product team to conduct A/B tests and other experiments
  • Work with engineers to help build tools to improve data analysis
  • Help customers via support to ensure they have the best experience possible
  • Experiment: this is a startup so everything can change.

About Zapier

For the past two years, Zapier has been helping people across the world automate the boring and tedious parts of their job. We do that by helping everyone connect the web applications they already use.

We believe that there are jobs that a computer is best at doing and that there are jobs that a human is best at doing. We want to empower businesses everywhere to create processes and systems that let computers do what they are best at doing and let humans do what they are best at doing.

We believe that with the right tools, you can have 10X the impact with less work.

We believe in small teams. Small teams are fast and nimble. Small teams mean less bureaucracy and less management and more getting things done.

We believe that credentials are not needed. Our head of development has a finance degree. Our head of business and marketing has an engineering degree. Our head of design has a mechanical engineering degree. What you love doing is way more important than the credentials you have.

The Whole Package

Location: Anywhere, USA.

If you want to work remote, that's cool. If you want to work near others, that's cool too. Our team is distributed across Mountain View, CA, Columbia, MO, Omaha, NE and Chicago, IL because it lets us work with the best people.


  • $50-80k + company stock
  • Great healthcare + dental + vision coverage
  • 2-3 annual company retreats to awesome places

Pick your own equipment. We'll set you up with whatever laptop + monitor combo you want plus any software you need.

Unlimited vacation policy (plus we insist you take at least 2 weeks off each year - this isn't a vague policy where unlimited vacation means no vacation).

Work with awesome companies around the world. We partner with the best software companies in the world and you'll constantly get to interact with people from these great companies.

Set your own destiny. As the first data hire, you have the opportunity to shape the position and role to be what you want it to be.
