Locations: Austin, TX


As our Sr. Analyst - Data Science, you will be a key member of the CDK/Roadster Analytics team, reporting directly to our VP of Analytics (Roadster).  CDK recently acquired Roadster, so you’ll have the opportunity to experience what it’s like to work in a fast-paced Silicon Valley culture, but also have all the growth opportunities the larger CDK organization offers.  


In this role, you’ll be working with some of the top Silicon Valley talent and have access to one of the largest and most comprehensive datasets in the Automotive industry.  You’ll be working closely with Roadster’s customer-facing teams (Success, Sales, Marketing) teams as well as directly with some of the largest and most progressive automotive retailers in the world.

You will use your advanced SQL and Python skills to assemble complex customer journeys, then use your data wrangling skills to blend it with other data from SalesForce or other APIs.  Finally, you’ll either build advanced visualizations in Mode Analytics, enabling end-users to visualize the journeys and/or build models and algorithms to process the data in Python.  We are a production shop, so the final step will be to harden your code and put it into production.  


You’ll be joining a world-class analytics team, consisting of some of the best Digital Analysts, Data Engineers, BI experts.  Furthermore, you’ll join a team with experience building real, productionalized analytics, generating real results.   To get a sense of how the Roadster software works, check out these demos:
