Job Description

About Us:

We believe teachers have one of the most vital jobs in the world, and we’re here to support them. What began as a word-of-mouth marketplace where teachers could buy and sell educational resources is now a teacher-powered digital learning platform. Our community of 7M+ educators relies on us for engaging, accessible, classroom-ready materials—and we rely on our team members to continue developing solutions that improve the lives of teachers, students, and, ultimately, the state of education itself.

About the Team:

The Analytics team at TPT blends quantitative data and generalist knowledge gained from close partnerships with product managers and functional team leads (e.g., growth marketing manager) to drive decision making, understand TPT's business and products, produce solutions, surface opportunities, and develop the data culture at TPT. Between running org-wide data trainings, collaborating with product, marketing, and sales teams, supporting senior leadership and our board of directors, and contributing to cross-functional exploratory work with the design, data science, and content teams, the Analytics team has unique exposure to the full org and a high level of leadership visibility. You'll work through the full analytics stack, from building models on top of raw data in our database to performing ad hoc and exploratory analyses to delivering compelling data stories that influence decision making.


Analytics Engineers build the data foundation for reporting, analysis and experimentation. We are looking for someone with expertise in metric development, data modeling & SQL. Using these and other tools, you will transform data from data warehouse tables into critical data artifacts that power impactful analytic use cases (e.g. metrics, dashboards) and empower our downstream data consumers. As an Analytics Engineer, you will work collaboratively with Data and Engineering teams, as well as business teams including Product, Marketing, and Finance, to achieve highly impactful outcomes.

Data can transform how a company operates; high data quality and tooling is the biggest lever to achieving that transformation. You will make that happen at TPT and help us democratize data.
