As a Senior Strategy & BizOps Analyst, you will work on critical strategic projects to enable the Digital Wholesale business to drive ambitious growth.

  • Work with functional leaders to set the strategic direction for Digital Wholesale – and then bring it to life on the execution side
  • Conduct data-driven analysis, extracting key insights and presenting findings in a compelling way to drive critical business decisions
  • Analyze business fundamentals and work cross-functionally to implement high-impact projects and ensure the business meets its KPIs
  • Collaborate with Data Analytics and Engineering teams to enhance reporting infrastructure, build intuitive dashboards, and craft key metrics that define business success
  • Establish organizational processes that create leverage for our teams as we scale the business

What you'll bring

  • 2-4 years of relevant professional experience; corporate strategy, management consulting, strategic finance, or banking experience a plus
  • Bachelor’s degree in Business, Economics, Finance, or a related field; Masters degree a plus
  • A strategic mindset, able to take the 10,000 foot view of a business
  • Willing to step outside your role and independently come up with novel ideas for the business
  • You love digging into the data, translating quantitative and qualitative inputs into actionable insights and recommendations; P&L understanding a plus
  • Ability to distill complex data into practical reports using data visualization software (e.g., Tableau, Looker, Power BI, etc.)
  • Proficient in using Excel and SQL for data analysis and transformation
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills – both in formal presentations to leadership and informal settings to influence teams
  • Self-motivated, well-organized, and detail-oriented
