Business Operations and Strategy Associate

Pinterest, San Francisco

Visual discovery destination

As an early member of the Business Operations and Strategy team, you’ll focus on driving critical business insights for our Executive Team while partnering with leaders throughout Pinterest to fundamentally improve how we operate as a business. With a combination of exceptional analytical skills, an insatiable curiosity, and an entrepreneurial, “get stuff done” mindset, you’ll help us better understand our Pinners, Partners, and products, and drive important changes that will shape the future of Pinterest.

What you’ll do :

  • Business Analytics. Develop a deep understanding of our users, usage, partners, and products and how they impact our business to inform important decisions across the organization. Define critical KPIs and build core operating dashboards to help teams drive operational rigor and manage performance, and perform analysis that informs key decisions and priorities.
  • Strategy & Special Projects. Tackle key questions around critical growth initiatives, and partner with leaders throughout Pinterest to build business cases for potential investments. Present insights and recommendations to senior leadership, and drive the “follow through” of those recommendations to ensure smooth execution with a diverse array of cross-functional partners.
  • Forecasting & Reporting. Manage the forecast models for revenue and other core enterprise metrics that drive company-wide forecasting, goal-setting, and strategic planning. Work with the Finance team and senior leaders to craft regular updates to the Board of Directors and Executive Team.

What we're looking for :

  • 2-4 years of top-tier experience. You’ve been a top performer in an investing, consulting, investment banking, product, and/or another highly analytical role at a fast-growing company; knowledge of the consumer internet and media ecosystem is a plus.
  • Exceptional data analysis skills. An expert in a variety of advanced analytical tools including Excel, Tableau, and/or SQL (and in areas you’re not, you have the growth mindset to learn it); knowledge of Python and R is a plus.
  • Entrepreneurial self-starter. You thrive in a fast-moving environment and are independently capable of seeking information, corralling resources, and delivering results without waiting for direction.
  • A structured and detail-oriented thinker. You’re as comfortable solving conceptual problems and creating frameworks to refine a team’s thinking as you are getting into the weeds to understand how things work.
  • Strong communication skills. You can move seamlessly between conversing with engineers or frontline ops employees and lead presentations with senior executives.
  • High-energy, positive team player. You have a proven ability to build strong working relationships with business partners; this is a highly cross-functional role, so a low ego and a high instinct for collaboration are musts.
