Anyone here joined a startup as their first analytics person? Recently interviewed for a startup and it sounds like they don’t have their data pipelines in place. Worried that if I jump over as the analytics person, then I might not have the technical chops to build out the pipeline and overall infrastructure. My background is in BI and analytics

I did recently, you will spend a lot of the early months on hygiene and undoing whatever garbage reporting and metrics they had before you even if they have data engineers to help build the pipelines. I would expect you will need to make some of your own pipes but just for 3rd party vendors, engineering should take care of the rest. On the plus side, if you are good, you will quickly put yourself in the room for every important decision in the company.

do they have data engineers/DBAs to store/architect/pipeline their data ? if yes - then it’s fun, you get to spec out the data landscape. if no - you’d need to fill that role which requires a more technical skill set.

I’m currently interview and I’m nervous about going to a new job that is hybrid or remote at the moment. A big reason I was successful in my current position was by earning people respect through having a good attitude, doing whatever work was asked of me, and showing that I genuinely care/want to learn. I feel like without being in person it will be much harder to develop these personal relationships with coworkers and earn their trust. Am I overthinking this?

Quantitatively went very well. One interviewer had to reschedule due to technical difficulties. Idk if did well enough for the offer but the wait is🤢 Any tips on this last interv?

How long would you wait before following up with a recruiter after a phone interview if you haven’t heard back?

The turnaround time has been less than 24 hours for everything but now it’s been radio silence and I’m starting to get anxious.

Pop Quiz - You have a large family with kids 7 and under. Family time is very important to you and you are financially stable (no mortgage/debt & solid savings). The ultimate goal is to save enough for the kids college, retire early, and travel. Do you choose a higher salary career that involves a lot of travel which takes you away from your family but gets you to your end goal sooner? Or do you take a lower salary career with minimal travel and flexibility to spend time with your family?
