Data Analyst

You love working with data, learning from it, and applying what you learn to solve real business problems. You have the technical skills and the motivation to get at the data you need, wherever it is, and in whatever shape it is. You have a good statistical toolkit to solve problems, yet you are always looking to add to it. You keep your eye out for problems to solve, and you are ready to jump in to get the numbers to help understand and solve these problems. You are a champion for fact-based decision making.

As the first true online home insurance provider in North America, we are intensely data driven. You will be working with the company’s management to support all aspects of operations. From product design and marketing to sales and claims. You will be responsible for making sense of the numbers, using your curiosity and excellent analytical skills to detect problems in time, and coming up with solid recommendations on how to make things better. You are comfortable working independently and switching quickly from one project to the next.

Your responsibilities

You’ll be responsible for constantly keeping an eye on the many metrics that need monitoring at Square One and come up with new ones to better understand our business. You will spot trends and anomalies, dig into these to get to causes and potential solutions, and clearly communicate your findings. And, using your analytical skills, you will tell us things we did not know about our business.

Since we are a small and flexible organization, you will see your answers to our questions make a big impact on our business. You’ll be who we go to when we have a question like “How much should we spend acquiring this type of customer, based on their likelihood of staying with us and their risk profile?” or “What are the characteristics or behaviours that lead to low retention rates?” or “How many agents should we hire in the next 6 months to make sure our call wait times stay within our standards?”
