Job Description

About Us

Niche is a rapidly growing startup company located in Pittsburgh, in the heart of Shadyside. We have hundreds of millions of reviews, opinions, and data points on every college, school, and neighborhood in the U.S., and millions of monthly website visitors reading that content. We’re obsessed with providing students, families, and professionals with best-in-class content and deep insight into big life decisions. Every year, we help millions of people choose the most important places in their life.


What We’re Looking For

Required Experience

  • 2+ years of quantitative work experience OR graduate degree in a quantitative/scientific field
  • SQL experience
  • R or Python experience

Useful Experience

  • Experimental Design
  • Web Analytics
  • A/B Testing
  • Javascript
  • RegEx
  • Survey Writing
  • Statistical Modelling


Description of Role

  1. Question everything. How might we make this more usable,  more profitable, faster, more robust? Dream up our options.
  2. Figure out what you need to tell us if design A is better than design B. Run an A/B test. Mine the database. Build some models. Field a survey. Get the right data for your question.
  3. Find the answer. Do you need to learn a new technique to find it? Go figure that out. Is this an answer we need routinely? Design some reports, preferably automated. Check back soon to make sure they’re still useful. Fix them or kill them. Unnecessary reporting makes your skin crawl.
  4. Shout the answer from the rooftops. Not everyone likes looking at the numbers. That’s ok. You’ll make them irresistible with clearer visualizations, patient conversations, and persistent education. Your communication style will be iteratively optimized just as intentionally as the product.
  5. Ok, so now we know that A is better than B. But why? Is this generalizable, how much? Could we apply this elsewhere in the product? So many new questions…


Compensation and Benefits

This is a full time, salaried position with competitive compensation and benefits including 20 paid days off per year, paid time off for volunteering, parental leave, stock options, SIMPLE IRA, and a comprehensive health plan, including vision and dental, provided at no cost to the employee. We’ve been ranked as one of the Best Places to Work in Southwestern PA by the Pittsburgh Business Times. Niche is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
