You will work closely with our in-house data & analytics team as well as members of our cross-functional leadership teams to understand the business requirements, translate them into analytical processes, and build reporting and dashboards that communicate the results.

  • Contribute to user acceptance testing by collaborating cross-functional stakeholders, ensuring that the business requirements have been properly satisfied.
  • Assist in the identification, construction, and integration of new internal and external data sources.
  • Document processes and develop training materials in support of BI applications.
