Sr. Strategy & Planning Associate

Central Operations, Operations & Launch
in Sydney, Australia

About the Role

A successful strategy is essential to ANZs growth and financial contribution targets in 2020. The Strategy and Planning Associate will be responsible for creating actionable insights from the ground up, crafting strategies and tactics, and helping implement that plan across the region

The ideal candidate for this role will have strong analytical skills and an appetite for learning how data insights actually play out on the ground. They will need to navigate through stakeholders' needs, be obsessed about making data-driven decisions and be super well organised. The position requires a strong ability to coordinate with multiple POCs across the business, manage relationships with functional areas and drive leadership buy-in.

What You'll Do:

Strategy

  • Help manage our regional P&L: In JUMP, there are a huge number of tradeoffs in the way that we make decisions (i.e. cost vs speed, deployment vs customer experience etc). You are key to helping drive to the right answer on those tradeoffs at a regional level. You need to know what data is needed and know how to present it to management in order to make the right call.
  • Intel & Insights generation: You will design methods to analyze market information, provide insights and shape strategies to guide JUMPs strategy in ANZ. Keep the team updated with competitive intel so we can stay ahead of the pack.

Planning

  • Planning: Planning in JUMP is very different to what is required in other parts of Uber. You need to understand hardware development, supply chains and certification timelines amongst others in order to help devise a workable plan for the region.
  • Organisation: You will then need to help manage the implementation of that plan. Because we operate hardware, there are more dependencies required over a longer period of time in order to implement our plan or strategy. You will be a centrepoint for coordinating efforts of the team and ensure these dependencies are all working in unison.
  • Prioritization: In Jump/NeMo we are never at a shortage of problems to tackle or projects to take on. You will need to be a strong influencer to ensure the team prioritizes the most impactful work first while not letting long term issues fall out of thought.

What You'll Need:

  • 4+ years of work experience, preferably in Consulting, Business Intelligence, Investment Banking, is expected, but we'll evaluate candidates with less experience if they meet our other requirements
  • Top of the line Excel and data management skills
  • You need to be very well organised and have good project management skills
  • You will need to thrive with ambiguity and uncertainty. You need to be able to create order and a path forward when the answer isn't clear.
  • SQL proficiency is a requirement, Python and R knowledge are a huge plus
  • Strong communication skills is a must - Taking complicated and complex issues and compiling into a clean and clear narrative. You will need to be able to influence the thinking of those above you as well as your peers
  • Strong business sense and creative approach with data to identify gaps in our value proposition
  • You need to be a self starter. There is lots of 'white space' in JUMP and you will need to know how to prioritise what work needs to be done and what doesn't.
