We are looking for someone with in-depth experience with paid media channels (search, social, programmatic/display), operations, and data infrastructure.

This is a remote position that can be done from anywhere. Due to the remote nature of this role, we are unable to provide visa sponsorship. Resumes and communication must be submitted in English.

In the first month, expect to:

  • Work closely with the Paid Media team to fully understand their needs.

In the first three months, expect to:

  • Own all of the data aspects of key Paid Media channels.

In the first six months, expect to:

  • Understand funnels, ecosystems, user behaviors, and trends to find opportunities for new initiatives or optimizations.

In the first year, expect to:

  • Own, coordinate, and solve complex, cross-functional challenges that extend beyond the traditional boundaries of paid media and data analytics.


  • 4+ years of analytics experience, with at least 2 of those years collaborating with Paid Media teams.
  • Experience with key Paid Media platforms, Google Analytics, SQL, and BI tools (Tableau, Qlik, PowerBi, etc.) is required; experience with Python is a plus.
  • A BA/BS degree, preferably in an analytical field.
  • Ability to explain complex issues simply and intuitively, and willingness to challenge assumptions, communicate limitations, and flag blind spots.
  • Strong understanding of exploratory data analysis, hypothesis testing, experimentation, regressions, and experimentation logic and biases.
  • Track record of linking data and analytics to business strategy and operations to drive real impact and understand the underlying processes and behaviors.
  • Strong attention to detail. We build trust through quality.
  • You must be a world-class individual contributor to thrive at Toptal. You will not be here just to tell other people what to do.
