Job Description:

Data may or may not be the new oil, but it sure is essential to a company like ours.

Roku is changing how the world watches TV

Roku is the #1 TV streaming platform in the US, and we've set our sights on powering every television in the world. Roku pioneered streaming to the TV. Our mission is to be the TV streaming platform that connects the entire TV ecosystem. We connect consumers to the content they love, enable content publishers to build and monetize large audiences, and provide advertisers unique capabilities to engage consumers.


From your first day at Roku, you'll make a valuable - and valued - contribution. We're a fast-growing public company where no one is a bystander. We offer you the opportunity to delight millions of TV streamers worldwide while gaining meaningful experience across various disciplines.

About the role

Roku pioneered streaming to the TV and continues to innovate and lead the industry. While we are well-positioned to help shape the future of television - including TV advertising - around the world, continued success relies on its investment in our data.


At Roku, data is at the center of everything we do.  At our scale, our data's depth and richness help us uncover insights to improve our users' everyday experience. That's why we're actively looking for a senior analyst of business analytics to drive forecasting, reporting, and analyzing for Roku's key operating metrics. Senior leadership will use active accounts and streaming hours to measure our user base, engagement, develop financial forecasts and make strategic decisions. The role will work closely with finance to support corporate strategy and serve as a trusted advisor by leaders across the organization.


The person in this role will leverage a combination of technical skills, business intuition, and analytical thinking to provide business insights that are relevant and digestible to key decision-makers. Hence, communication and presentation skills are enormously important. The role requires both high technical aptitude and problem-solving abilities, motivation, and exceptional attention to detail.  


The Senior Data Analyst role at Roku is a perfect fit for anyone who wants to continue to evolve business domain expertise alongside technical and analytical development. We're always in "build mode" because we're a company of data-focused builders, especially on the data team. Every day, you'll look at what exists and find ways to make it better.

What you'll be doing

  • Support the analytical needs of the Finance team and executive leadership, inclusive of routine reporting, ad hoc analysis, statistical inference, and predictive modeling for Roku's Active Accounts and Streaming Hours metrics
  • Provide analytical support and monitor key performance indicators, highlighting trends and analyzing causes of changes. Conduct deep dives when observing abnormal trends and identify potential risks before they manifest
  • Understand drivers of value creation to guide strategic and financial planning
  • Leverage Roku's vast amounts of data to generate business insights that inform strategy at the highest levels of leadership
  • Ensure accuracy of key operating metrics before they are released both internally and externally

We're excited if you have

  • 4+ years relevant experience in a quantitative field like business analytics, data science, management consulting, banking, etc.
  • Experience working within and structuring very large data warehouses (i.e., 'Big Data')
  • Proficiency in Excel. VBA experience a plus but not prerequisite
  • Proficiency in SQL.  Experience with R or Python a plus
  • Knowledge of statistical and predictive modeling techniques, specifically of time series forecasting
  • Experience creating data visualizations in Tableau, Looker, or other modern visualization tools
  • Deep analytical skills, strong out-of-the-box thinking, curiosity, and strong business intuition; can connect the dots between disparate data sources to drive insight
  • Proven track record of defining and executing key analyses with minimal supervision
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills. Proven ability in preparing effective presentations with clear explanations of business implications to executives
  • Bachelor's or master's Degree background with emphasis in quantitative fields such as math, statistics, economics, engineering, and computer science

The Roku culture

Roku is a great place for people who want to work in a fast-paced environment where everyone is focused on the company's success rather than their own. We try to surround ourselves with people who are great at their jobs, who are easy to work with, and who keep their egos in check. We appreciate a sense of humor. We believe a fewer number of very talented folks can do more for less cost than a larger number of less talented teams. We're independent thinkers with big ideas who act boldly, move fast and accomplish extraordinary things through collaboration and trust. In short, at Roku you'll be part of a company that's changing how the world watches TV.


We have a unique culture that we are proud of. We think of ourselves primarily as problem-solvers, which itself is a two-part idea. We come up with the solution, but the solution isn't real until it is built and delivered to the customer. That penchant for action gives us a pragmatic approach to innovation, one that has served us well since 2002.
