Based in San Francisco, this role will help design, prioritize, and implement projects to help this rapidly expanding business scale. We’re looking for someone who can set a vision and can solve problems from 30,000 feet as well as dive deep into the details.

As a partner to our General Managers, you will help support strategic decision making processes throughout the region through your analytics, heavy data driven approach, and operational mindset.

  • A high bar across the board – from your own contributions to the people you work with to the products you work on.
  • A “driver” personality – biased toward action, great collaborator and master disambiguator/simplifier – constantly pushing toward clarity and delivery.
  • Exceptional Excel / data management skills.
  • Grittiness. You never hesitate to roll up your sleeves and tackle something hands-on, you persevere when others fall away.
  • Clear communicator. You are a clear and concise communicator with the ability to synthesize a lot of information quickly, highlight the key take aways, and disseminate actionable insights.
  • Undergraduate degree from top-tier university. MBA highly preferred.
  • SQL Proficiency strongly preferred.
