    What You'll Do

     

    • Dedicated and relentless leadership and project execution. Independently capable of seeking information, solving conceptual problems, corralling resources and delivering results in challenging situations. You are known as someone who “gets stuff done.”
    • Structured and strategic decision making. Develop and leverage frameworks to help structure the team’s thinking, facilitate alignment on key strategic decisions among various stakeholders and identify the 80/20 opportunities to reach insightful, actionable answers without boiling the ocean with analysis overload
    • Technology and Process Design. You are equally comfortable solving problems through technology as you are through operational excellence, and know when to employ the right tactic.
    • Great communicator.  Strong communication and influencer skills for engaging with multiple stakeholders of the business, understanding their interests or concerns, and unifying them around a common goal for success. This includes the ability to articulate recommendation using PowerPoint presentations. 
    • Athlete. Play a wide-variety of roles to get the job done.
    • Fast Mover. We move fast...done is better than perfect, and continual iteration is important. You are ready and excited to learn on your feet and help build a growing business. You also will support junior members of the team (analysts). 
    • High-energy, positive standout colleague. This is a highly cross-functional role; egos are not welcome.
