  • Reviewing and updating our pricing model, taking into account supply chain changes and competitor landscape

  • Analyzing product and segment trends across sales channels to optimize our value proposition for customers

  • Understanding product margins combined with customer potential future value to make recommendations on discounting

You will need to show an understanding of SQL databases and have completed some analytics projects in your current role. This role will report to our Manager of Data Analytics.

What you'll do:

  • Develop a partnership with Merchandising to understand their needs and provide valuable reporting and insights to help them achieve success with our product offerings

  • Understand business objectives behind requests and make recommendations to improve their impact

  • Take learnings from other parts of the business back to the Merchandising team to help contextualize the team's data

  • Share product and segment insights with other analysts and business areas to facilitate coordination and optimize impact

  • Stay connected to analysis for all business areas to provide support on a variety of projects as needed

  • Perform exploratory analysis that results in meaningful insights and recommendations for a broad range of subjects

  • Demonstrate strong collaboration and analytical business thinking

  • Bring consistency to metrics used throughout the organization

How you'll be measured:

  • Quality of analysis, insights, recommendations & impact

  • Strength of relationships with other leaders and analysts

  • Elevation of related Analytics capabilities

What we're looking for:

  • Academic success in an analytically challenging field, such as math, physics, computer science, or economics

  • 3-5 years solving business problems through qualitative & quantitative research, statistical analysis & modeling and strategic planning

  • Experience performing analysis on large and often incomplete data sets and translating results for consumption by business partners

  • Expert in Excel

  • Strong skills in SQL

  • Previous skills with Tableau, SAS, SPSS or R desired

  • Demonstrated use of machine learning techniques for business problems

  • Excellence in statistics, data and analytics, predictive modeling & hypothesis testing

  • Experience with Salesforce or other CRM platforms a plus

  • Detail oriented - As you would expect, our work often relies on getting many details correct in order to build an accurate view of the bigger picture

  • Strong communication skills - Strong analysis is a great starting point, but we are also looking for someone who can help connect business partners with the summary and implications of that analysis work.

  • Empathy for how data can shape how Merchandising teams are working and the ability to determine technology and data needs from business requirements

  • Agility - ability to juggle multiple ongoing projects and work both collaboratively and autonomously at times
