About the Role
As a member of Japans Strategy & Planning (S&P) team, you will work closely with senior local and regional leadership, as well as partners across business operations, marketing, sales and strategic finance on building a sustainable and long-term advantage for Uber Eats Japan.
We are looking for a candidate with a strong set of fundamental business skills - analytical ability, strong communication and project management - with a keen curiosity, flexibility, and desire to work on a wide range of projects in a highly dynamic environment.
What You'll Do:
Develop business insights: Partner with Sales, Operations and Finance teams to identify important trends, problems and opportunities. Communicate your findings and use them to help develop business strategy, while keeping your finger on the pulse of market trends, competition and opportunities.
Improve Processes: Identify operational and structural weaknesses and help improve existing or develop new processes to keep our teams as efficient as possible.
Project Management: Be an inventive multi-tasker, supporting teams across multiple critical initiatives.
Drive Communication: Communicate country priorities through a variety of internal and external communications.
- Lead by example: Be exceptionally truth-seeking with data, set a high bar for the team to think boldly and creatively, communicate frequently and with high quality; then funnel that energy into concrete processes and execution plans.
What You'll Need:
Experience in business strategy, operations, analytics or finance. Experience in a high-growth, highly-dynamic environment is preferred.
Ability to identify a business, operational or organizational challenge, frame the problem, and decide on an appropriate course of action.
Strategic and an eye for business. Strong ability to analyze data to identify operational deficiencies, financial opportunities, and industry trends.
Communication ability. Clear and concise communication with an eye towards takeaways and next steps, whether in writing, decks or live meetings.
Speed and balancing priorities. Many tasks, from tiny to huge, come to this role, and you must be able to execute quickly and while frequently re-prioritizing.
Grit, positivity and bias towards action. Japan is a dynamic, high-growth market and S&P is given both the visibility and the mandate to fix many of our biggest challenges.
- Fluency in English and business Japanese is a bonus.
