Head of Data Analytics

About Dandy

Dandy is a business-in-a-box for dentists. Our vision is to become the operating system for every dental office in America by leading the transition to digital dentistry for the $200 billion industry. Headquartered in New York City, Dandy is backed by the world's leading venture capital investors.

About the Role

We’re looking for an experienced analytics leader to drive Dandy’s data analytics strategy, scale the data analytics team rapidly, guide ever-tighter partnership with business stakeholders, raise the standards of the team and every team member on a daily basis, and ultimately play a major role in Dandy’s success as a company.

This function (and all of our team members) works from bottom to top – from ensuring clean and complete raw data all the way to deep dive analysis and communicating key findings to company leadership. Our analytics leader must be a leader across all of these levels.

Dandy’s data team is setting new standards for the data industry. The data team also plays a strong role within the company, taking ownership of strategic business projects that might be considered out of scope in most other companies. Dandy Data requires a leader with strong interest in driving forward the business as a whole.

While Dandy is growing in size quickly, we need someone who will bring the best parts of the startup mentality every day.

    • Dimensions of growth are: analytic, technical, communications and presentation, organizational dexterity, management
  • Partner with data squads and stakeholders to set long term vision and nearer term strategy
  • When sensible, drive team+company adoption of the most advanced tools and datasets available 
  • Drive forward data team work on a tactical level, getting into the weeds on some projects
  • Be a company leader beyond data work where relevant
  • Drive best practices at all levels of the team’s work; cement Dandy’s place as a data industry leader
  • Bring a startup mentality every day
  • Partner with platform engineering teams (and data infrastructure team) to build strong processes around data modeling, data collection, and data security, and data infrastructure 

Requirements

  • 6+ years of experience in the analytics team management roles
  • Experience with managing a large data analytics team that covers similar functions as Dandy’s, ideally had experience with founding and scaling and analytics team at a relevant startup
  • Strong SQL skills and technical skills generally
  • Proven experience influencing strategy and driving change across org boundaries through clear and compelling communication of data-driven insights and analyses (Engineering, Product, Ops, Sales, etc.)
  • Experience with driving analytics and research for a brand-new or rapidly scaling business or product line
  • Strong analytic acumen across a spectrum of business functions
  • Strong SQL skills and technical skills generally
  • Strong communications and presentation skills; ability to coach team members to successfully present to company executives
  • Demonstrated ability to grow a data function with high speed and standards (including hiring)
