More about you

You've been working with data for 8+ years and have a BS degree in Statistics, Mathematics, Economics, Computer Science or other quantitative field.

You have strong business acumen, love driving strategy, making big changes, and influencing others. You have a history of driving measurable impact in close collaboration with operational colleagues.

You combine curiosity with critical thinking and good judgment, and like asking "why" to unravel a seemingly complex problem and get to the root cause.

You know how to gather, document, and interpret business requirements; always knowing how to ask the ‘why’ underpinning all requests.

You’re a senior ‘pillar of the team’, confident in your business acuity, analytics expertise and communication / coordination skills to push through ambiguity and upskill those around you.

When you encounter a problem you come up with multiple solutions, weigh the tradeoffs and efforts, identify the best path forward, and exercise good judgment to drive ahead.

You’re a natural storyteller, who loves bringing senior non-technical audiences along with your data-drive narratives to guide and influence.

To keep pace with our rapid growth and evolution you learn new things quickly. You can take an ambiguous assignment and move quickly to deliver iterative value. You use multiple tools and methods to find trends and correlations by mining data, and couple that with intuition and quick tests to prioritize how to drive forward on complicated problems.
