DescriptionThe analytics and data products we create to empower our end users can take many forms, from a standard tableau report to a statistical forecasting platform to an exception-based notification delivered through a smartphone app. We develop stable, scalable, ground-breaking analytics and data products of elegant simplicity to support the growth and unlock the full potential of our connected products program.

Keys to results include exceptional product ownership skills in an agile environment, previous experience managing data product delivery squads operating in AWS, deep background in managing global enterprise report development, and an excellent understanding & curiosity of how consumer & business value is created at a company like Nike. This position requires a positive, enthusiastic team player with meaningful hands on experience, work ethic and curiosity. While you (understandably) rely on data to prove your point, you love to think outside the box and solve problems creatively. Your experience helps you prioritize and overcome blockers and guide the work of others on your team.
