About Us

At Udemy, we’re on a mission to improve lives through the power of learning. We’re a leading global learning company and one of the world’s largest education platforms, with more than 67 million learners. Our goal is to provide flexible, effective skill development to empower organizations and individuals.

Talented people are everywhere, and the right opportunity can be hard to come by. That’s why we’re focused on revolutionizing learning, using our skills and expertise to help others develop theirs and reach their full potential. Individually, we bring our unique perspective to reimagine the way we share knowledge. Together, we can improve lives by making learning more accessible for our learners, our instructors, and businesses around the world.

About you

You’re an analytical problem-solver ready to put your skills toward purposeful work that has a global impact. You want to lead the way in innovation, exploring the latest technologies and finding new solutions. You thrive in a collaborative environment and are eager to work with and learn alongside the best in Product, Design, and Engineering.

About this role

As this is a new discipline at Udemy, the ideal candidate is excited about establishing the foundations for a business-focused data program, thinking strategically with our leadership team on continued development of this discipline while working closely with our Analytics Engineering team on execution. You should thrive in an environment where you have the ability to tackle large, ambiguous problems and you should be very comfortable with being hands-on with data and using it to make strategic business decisions at a fast moving public company. Success requires a passion for building great data products for internal customers and enthusiasm for leading high performing teams, working in partnership with business, analytics engineering, data science, and other product and engineering teams.

What you'll be doing:

  • Partner with Product, Engineering, and business teams in defining, prioritizing, and leading data warehousing focused initiatives from discovery through launch.
  • Identify opportunities and define the data product direction for Analytics Engineering at Udemy.
  • Develop an understanding of, and empathy for, internal teams’ data needs and represent their voice in developing and executing against a customer-centric data roadmap.
  • Perform requirements elicitation for enterprise-scale data warehousing projects, document business process details, metric and business definitions, and reporting and analytics requirements.
  • Perform data analysis and work hands on in SQL to translate business requirements into working code that produces accurate, user friendly data sets.
  • Design dimensional data models in partnership with analytics engineers to build out Udemy’s data warehouse model.

What you’ll have

  • You have 10+ years of experience in data, analytics, or technical analyst roles.
  • Professional experience and passion for building internal data warehousing and analytics products and platforms.
  • You’re an expert at SQL.
  • Extensive experience with requirements elicitation for enterprise data warehouse projects.
  • Extensive, hands-on experience with dimensional and normalized data modeling.
  • Ideal candidate has experience driving large-scale change in an engineering-driven organization.
  • Deep technical understanding of batch and streaming data systems, familiarity with cloud based data lakes/warehouses (Databricks and Redshift preferred), and exposure to open source data platforms (Kafka, Spark, Hive, dbt, etc.).

We understand that not everyone will match each of the above qualifications. However, we also realize that everyone has unique experiences that can add value to our company. Even if you think your background might not perfectly align, we'd love to hear from you!

Life at Udemy

We aspire to be as vibrant and dynamic as the communities we serve, as inquisitive as those who use our platform, and as revolutionary as the future we strive to open for everyone. Here are some of the things we love about life at Udemy:

  • We’re invested in creating an inclusive environment that welcomes a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences. From creating employee resource groups, ensuring we’re a Fair Pay Workplace, and building a flexible work culture, our belonging, equity, diversity, and inclusion (BEDI) initiatives always put our people first. We want you to be able to bring your authentic self to work because when we all do, we’re better for it.

  • Learning is what we do – inside and out. Our Learning & Development team is second to none, helping ensure your journey is one of continuous progression. You’ll also have unlimited access to Udemy courses, monthly UDays (meeting-free professional development days), and a generous annual professional development stipend.

  • Our reason to exist is to revolutionize learning – that calls for taking risks and learning from failures. Whether it’s our hackathons (a company-wide effort to envision new possibilities for our product) or sharing our prototypes, we see experimentation as a crucial step on the path to success.

  • We’re committed to creating world-class employee experiences and are proud of the recognition of this by Great Place to Work.

Of course, the best thing about being part of Udemy is knowing your work makes a difference for people and organizations around the world. You’ve got the skills; why not use them to help others develop theirs?
