Lead Data Analyst


Hudl is changing the future of sports technology. We build video analysis and stat tools for teams around the world, at every level of competition. Our software provides over 3.5 million coaches and athletes the insight they need to win.

We need an experienced analyst to join our Data Analytics team in Lincoln or Omaha, Nebraska. You’ll use the incredible amount of data we have to help others at Hudl make better decisions. And your work will have a lot of variety.

Before we go into details, there are important things you should know about this opportunity:

  • You’ll be based in Lincoln or Omaha, Nebraska - whichever is more convenient for you.
  • Applicants must be authorized to work in the US on a full-time basis .

If you can meet all of those requirements for us, read on.

To help teams and athletes win, we need a Lead Data Analyst.  The Lead Data Analyst is part of the foundation of the Decision Science team and will be essential to the opportunities as our unit scales to provide world class insights that drive ROI through every element of the business.

Our team is in the midst of a fundamental shift in the way that we approach analytics. In the past, we worked in ad hoc analytics, answering isolated questions by creating single-purpose datasets that were overlapping, conflicting, non-optimized, and difficult to test and maintain because they lacked shared foundations.  

Our future is one of unified analytics, where we build shared, foundational data assets designed to deliver cross-cutting intelligence and insights across business domains.  Our priorities are shifting from serving only local needs to making a bigger impact on global needs, with a mandate for consistency, efficiency, speed, and quality so that our way of analytics scales.

Our Team

Decision Science is a high impact, cross-functional team of Data Analysts, Data Engineers, Predictive Analysts, Data Scientists, and Consumer Insights Researchers at Hudl.  We combine qualitative and quantitative data to deliver actionable insights and scalable analyses to power strategy at the highest levels. We partner with internal Hudl teams and business leaders by providing self-service analytics, custom insights, and foresights to help them drive their business forward.  

On any given day, we might be writing SQL queries to understand user behavior over time or running data through statistical models to help our teams forecast and set better goals.  Here are some projects that we're working on:


  • Building a predictive model to determine the likelihood that a customer will renew their subscription with Hudl
  • Designing and building database schemas to support point-and-click analytics and visualizations in Looker for our employees to use
  • Deliver insights to guide product development of features that will drive engagement and pull more users into the Hudl platform
