What You'll Do

  • Support leadership with research on key business initiatives and challenges.

  • Experience creating and scheduling datasets is highly valued. Knowledge of Azure Databricks and pyspark is a plus.
  • Natural communicator who focuses just as much on the delivery and the “so what” of your insights, as you do on the technical craft of extracting them.
  • Comfortable building and maintaining relationships with senior management, as well as team members around the world.
  • Capable of tackling very loosely defined problems, and leading and owning a research agenda for long term analytics projects.
  • Passionate about bringing people together and striving towards being a true owner always.
