Job Description

We are looking for an experienced Senior Data Analyst to join our User team.

  • Design, develop, implement and analyze experiments related to product features and operational processes.

  • Take ownership of the analytics process - from project scoping and design through communicating findings to stakeholders.

  • Support building up our data infrastructure together with our engineering team.

  • You may rotate to other product teams over time.


  • You can work remotely from anywhere (between UTC -5 and +2) with reliable Internet access.

  • Wave covers travel once per year to one of our operating countries in Africa, as well as a yearly stipend of $800 to meet with coworkers.

  • Our salaries are competitive and are calculated using a transparent formula. For this role, depending on your level, we offer a salary of $134,400-$155,600 USD (paid in your local currency equivalent), plus a generous equity package.

  • We run performance reviews twice a year and award bonuses or promotions to strong performers who have been with the company for more than six months.

Advanced knowledge of A/B testing and experimental design including sampling, randomisation, stratification, and clustering.

  • Advanced knowledge of statistical methods for analyzing experiments (such as regression modeling and heterogeneous treatment effects analysis).

  • Advanced knowledge of statistical methods for causal inference with quasi-experimental and time series data (such as propensity score matching, nearest neighbor matching, difference-in-differences, instrumental variable analyses, and structural equation modeling, and other time series methods).

  • Experience in building machine learning infrastructure and developing/maintaining models in production.

  • Experience with statistical methods for network analysis.

  • Experience leading a team of data analysts and/or scientists.

You might be a good fit if you
