Senior Data Analyst, People Analytics

  • Location: Pleasanton, CA, USA
  • Team: People Technology & Analytics
  • Role Type: Full-Time Employee (Individual)
Medallia’s mission is to help companies win through customer experience. The world’s best-loved brands trust Medallia’s Experience Cloud™, which embeds the pulse of the customer in an organization and empowers employees with the real-time customer data, insights, and tools they need to make every experience great. Named a leader in the most recent Forrester Wave and ranked in the 2018 Forbes Cloud 100 list, Medallia is growing quickly, with a global footprint that spans Silicon Valley, Austin, New York, Washington DC, London, Paris, Sydney, Buenos Aires, and Tel Aviv. Here, we value people for each of the aspects that make them whole. We believe that people should not be defined only by a job title—nobody is "just an engineer" or "just a salesperson." We are each partners, parents, children, siblings, friends, and former classmates. We have different backgrounds and we celebrate different cultures. And, just like our product, we honor each of the experiences that build our people.

At Medallia we hire the whole person, not just a part of them.

The Role

Medallia for EX includes a sophisticated NLP engine, ubiquitous feedback capture, closed loop feedback, and more exciting capabilities. You’ll also have access to an internal community of practice that spans Insights, Solutions Principals, Data Science, and more. This role is unique in that your contributions in the employee listening space will benefit Medallia both internally and externally.
