  • Exceptional data and analytics skills, including advanced fluency in SQL, Python (preferred), BI / data visualization tools, and Excel/Google Sheets
  • Strong cross-functional and executive communication skills, including a proven ability to influence without authority and build strong working relationships with business partners
  • Entrepreneurial self-starter that thrives in a fast-moving environment and is capable of independently seeking information, marshaling resources, and delivering results without waiting for direction
