We are looking for a People Analytics Specialist to join our Talent team full-time in Bogotá, Colombia. This role is a unique opportunity to apply your knowledge on people research, quantitative/statistical analysis and data visualization.

  • Communicate statistical analyses and results, along with implications through data and trend visualization
  • Be the Point of Contact for HR Tech vendors, ensure a seamless systems infrastructure and always be exploring new options that improve our process

What we offer you

When joining Polymath Ventures as a People Analytics Specialist, you will gain:

  • Great autonomy and responsibility from day 1 - this is a unique role within the talent team, so you will have the ability to shape it as you go
  • Numerous personal and professional growth opportunities within Polymath and its ventures

What we are looking for

On the formal side of things, you will have:

  • Degree in a field that uses analytics to understand human behavior (e.g., Organizational Behavior, Social / Personality Psychology, Behavioral Economics, Industrial / Organizational Psychology, Sociology or related quantitative fields), but we will consider candidates coming from different degrees if they meet other requirements 
  • At least 3 years of professional or academic experience conducting highly quantitative people research but we will consider candidates with less or a different experience if they meet other requirements 
  • Impressive Excel and SQL skills a must 
  • Excellent communication skills, written and verbal - fluency in English 
  • Have a burning desire to apply data-driven solutions to tackle real-world problems related to talent
  • Curious and always trying to find new, improved solutions in everything you start

To set yourself apart, you will bring:

  • Experience managing and analyzing structured and unstructured data using R or Python
  • Prior experience using data visalization tools (i.e. Redash, Tableau, etc.)
  • Fluency in Spanish (written and verbal)

On top of that, we are looking for:

  • Growth mindset - You have a deep desire to learn and improve yourself, and have the resilience required to fail, get up and try again
  • Bias to action - You don’t act hastily, but deliberately: you try something out, see if it works, and then try again
  • Ownership - You solve the problem at hand, demonstrate follow-through, and simply put: get things done
  • Day 1 attitude - You never take an expert view and approach each challenge you face with a beginners mindset
