  • Be a thought leader and advocate for the power of our data and strategize on how to make it most impactful 

What You Need:

  • 10-15+ years of experience, including 5-10 years of experience applying data insights in support of business decision making and leading the development of the infrastructure needed to support the creation of those insights
  • Intense curiosity, high intellectual and analytic horsepower, relentless pursuit of data-driven insights
  • Experience in and passion for building and leading successful teams with the ability to attract strong talent
  • Executive presence and the ability to communicate and present findings effectively to executive leadership
  • Demonstrated ability to manage cross-division, cross-team
