Job Description

At Returnly, we help brands that care about shopper loyalty offer better product returns. We are a financial technology services company that builds award-winning products that drive repurchase behavior and customer loyalty. We were backed at the beginning by smart money VCs in Fintech including some prominent members of the Paypal Mafia. Our headquarters are in San Francisco and we have offices in Chicago and Madrid. We are on a mission to de-risk online commerce and are building a team of amazingly talented people to help us do it.

Returnly has recently been acquired by Affirm, whose mission is to deliver honest financial products that improve lives. By building a new kind of payment network — one based on trust, transparency, and putting people first — Affirm empowers millions of consumers to spend and save responsibly and gives thousands of businesses the tools to fuel growth.

About the role:

At Returnly, we value you as a whole person. We care about the skill set you bring to the table, but more importantly, we care about the kind of person you are and the culture and attitude that you bring. As a Senior Data Analyst, you will work with our Product, Marketing, Data Science, Sales, Customer Success, and Finance teams to define and create meaningful analyses to help drive revenue, fix processes, and monitor impact. You will become an expert in our merchant and shopper data and seek to use that knowledge to provide an enhanced product experience using tools such as SQL, Python, Looker, statistics, machine learning, etc. This is a cross-functional role in which you’ll work with the Director of Analytics as well as the CEO, CTO and other members of Leadership to help prioritize the data projects that will have the biggest impact for Returnly merchants and shoppers.

What do we offer?


We prefer seeing each other often, but we already had a healthy WFH culture before Covid-19 came so when it happened, we just switched to everyday WFH. However, we would prefer it if you live in or near Madrid so when we open the office again it won’t be a problem for you to enjoy it.

We have a very flexible approach to working hours. You can stop to go to the gym, get your little ones to or from school, meditate or do whatever you need or want. There is a need for a certain amount of overlap with Pacific Coast working hours needed for meetings and collaboration that does not fit into asynchronous communications, however, we try to prioritize those, and your main collaborators are based in Spain. A lot of people at Returnly have families, we understand the sometimes unpredictable nature of life and we support everyone taking care of their loved ones and themselves, and we trust everyone to take advantage of this flexibility in a responsible way.

You will be provided with an Apple laptop and whatever you need to do your job comfortably and productively. As we are now unable to enjoy our offices, special provisions to help you set up at home will be addressed.

Additionally, Returnly offers some benefits to all its employees, like private medical insurance, extra vacation days, team activities, etc. Employees are eligible for extra benefits related to health & wellness and home utility reimbursement. Every employee has an amount to set up home for working remotely.
