Head of Analytics

Onramp is a rapidly growing startup founded by eCommerce veterans who know how to build a business from the ground up. Traditional lending is outdated and behind the times for eCommerce sellers; Onramp is changing that. Based in Austin, Texas, we are looking for a savvy Head of Analytics to join our rapidly growing team.

This is not your typical analytics role. At Onramp, you will be a critical piece of our founding team that sets the vision for years to come. This person will spearhead Onramp's analytics activities, help drive the product roadmap, work in lockstep with the sales and operations teams, and be a catalyst in building the company; a powerful combination that makes for an exciting day! Are you an architect or a builder? At Onramp, you will be both.

We challenge, expect extraordinary outcomes and are not afraid of being uncomfortable. We have a growth mindset and are willing to take risks. If you are not afraid to roll up your sleeves, want to build a company, have a voice, and have a blast along the way, Onramp could be for you!
