About the Analytics Engineer

In this role, you will build the tools and processes necessary to ensure quality and reliability of the data Trove’s innovative single-sku processing technology depends on. Our core products leverage and augment our partners’ existing product catalogs to power Trove’s internal operations as well as our partners’ resale and trade-in storefronts. As an Analytics Engineer focused on Catalog Integration, you will drive improvements in the catalog ingestion processes, identify catalog-driven improvements to the ecommerce customer experience, enable operational efficiencies within Trove, and help improve our broader data platform’s reliability, resiliency, and scalability. This role sits at the intersection of engineering and analysis, and will provide opportunities to build both tools and processes, and continually analyze catalog data to improve outcomes.

This position will be a part of the Catalog Integration function, sitting on a broader Data Engineering team, including Machine Learning Engineers and other Analytics Engineers. The Catalog Integration function is empowered to solve problems and make business recommendations independently, but also collaborates to design creative solutions to tough problems, offer and receive constructive feedback, and pair on thorny technical challenges. In this role, you will build strong cross-functional working relationships with leaders of Trove’s Product, Engineering, and Partnerships teams, and will also work closely with data teams within our partner brands and retailers. Our primary data tooling includes Jupyter Notebooks, Python, Redshift, and dbt as well as AWS infrastructure like Eventbridge and Lambda.

  • Build, manage, and scale data pipelines used to transform, map, validate, and load partner catalog data feeds
  • Collaborate with a range of internal stakeholders to identify catalog-driven opportunities and dependencies to inform product discovery
  • Evolve tools, best practices and processes to enable the Catalog Integration team to ensure catalog quality and freshness
  • Collaborate with Analytics Engineers to assemble complex data sets to address a diverse set of business and data analytics requests

Example Projects

  • Create tooling to empower product support to address ad-hoc catalog issues or requests
  • Partner with Machine Learning to identify opportunities to augment partner catalog data


  • You enjoy both deeply technical challenges and collaborating cross-functionally to translate data insights into action within the business. You may consider yourself an analytics engineer, an engineer who loves to think about business impact, or an analyst who loves building for scale.
  • You enjoy owning problems end-to-end. You have demonstrated an ability to solve thorny problems and effectively manage work streams from multiple contributors on a cross-functional project.
  • You enjoy working collaboratively with many different teams, and can clearly communicate technical requirements to both technical and non-technical audiences. You enjoy work that is occasionally client-facing.
  • You are energized by the thought of working across a wide array of technologies, project types, and stakeholders.
