YOU:

  • Use both quantitative and qualitative data to propose and evaluate business impact and opportunities.

  • A strong proactive communicator and writer, self-driven, and comfortable with setting and managing own priorities and deliverables.

  • A cross-team collaborator, able to effectively work with teams across multiple departments, time zones, and functions.
