Quantitative Data Analyst (Cogo Labs)

| Greater Boston Area
At Cogo Labs, we build startup companies from scratch.
 
We're not venture capitalists we're a collaborative team of engineers, analysts, and entrepreneurs using innovative tools, big data, and intellectual curiosity to build a platform that spins up successful online businesses, fast.
 
As a Cogo Labs Quantitative Data Analyst, you'll run and grow business lines within our incubator. You'll design and implement marketing programs, analyze performance metrics, and use the insights you gain to drive growth in audience engagement and revenue. Your expertise, ideas, and hard work will have a direct and immediate impact on the success of your project.
 
What to expect from Cogo:
  • Near obsessive use of data to inform business decisions. We believe that efficient growth happens when we make every decision based on solid, well directed analysis.
  • Unmatched opportunity. We believe in mentoring people to grow as quickly as they can. Today's new grad hires are tomorrow's leaders.
  • Flexibility and novelty. Your role will define itself over time, as you identify the problems that you are uniquely capable of solving.
  • A fun, supportive culture. Happy employees are the most successful. We take care of our own, and not just because it's good business. 
What we expect from you:
  • A bachelor's degree in a field that requires deep analytical thinking and problem solving. Many of us have Math, Econ, Engineering, or Comp Sci backgrounds, but applications from all quantitative fields are welcome.
  • Flexibility and self motivation. We value the willingness to wear many hats and the commitment to work on whatever needs to get done.
  • The ability to make a strong (data driven) case when presenting findings and recommendations, while remaining curious and receptive to feedback.
  • Demonstrated ability to work effectively as part of a team, and dedication to helping your teammates learn.
  • Passions and interests outside of work you aren't just your resume.
  • Bonus points if you've previously been responsible for a business unit's bottom line.

An Insider's view of Cogo Labs

What are some social events your company does?

Every year we have a Cogo cruise where we take the day off from the office and take a cruise around the Boston harbor. In addition, we have monthly women's dinners, LGTBQ centered events and much more!

Braden

Brand Marketing Coordinator

What does your typical day look like?

My top priorities are hiring for Senior level talent, looking into the recruiting funnel data to identify roadblocks, managing my team to help execute on goals, and continuing to build an efficient recruiting function to support Cogo as we scale.

Emily

What are some things you learned at the company?

I’ve always felt that my input is valued here, but also that I’m encouraged to use my voice and to make a difference in the growth of the business – whether that’s developing new partnerships or improving and owning new processes. People here are supportive, intelligent and kind. And fun. I’ve also enjoyed grabbing a drink with a colleague!

Claire

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

One of the most exciting things about working at Cogo is the incredible variety I see in the career paths of my peers. As an employee becomes more experienced their responsibilities shift to follow their interests, whether in building cool stuff, analyzing crazy amounts of data, or managing a team.

How does the company support your career growth?

I have never worked in an environment where individual contributors have been appreciated and encouraged as much as they are here, and it shows people’s energy and optimism. This success is also fueled by Cogo’s commitment to transparency and easy access to our leaders who consistently make organizational goals clear."
