Become a Part of the NIKE, Inc. Team

NIKE, Inc. does more than outfit the world's best athletes. It is a place to explore potential, obliterate boundaries and push out the edges of what can be. The company looks for people who can grow, think, dream and create. Its culture thrives by embracing diversity and rewarding imagination. The brand seeks achievers, leaders and visionaries. At Nike, it’s about each person bringing skills and passion to a challenging and constantly evolving game.


Nike, Inc. Technology is responsible for making the world’s largest sport brand run faster, smarter and more securely. From infrastructure to security and supply chain operations, Technology specialists drive growth through top-flight hardware, software and enterprise applications. Global Technology aggressively innovates solutions to drive growth while creating and implementing tools that help make everything else in the company possible.


As the Senior Director for Data Products and Reporting, you are a natural born leader with strong, hands-on management experience working in a dynamic business environment. You will become an invaluable partner to your stakeholders and help catalyze their thinking about what’s possible. You will think broadly and creatively about the role of analytics at Nike and how data can be used to help improve the business.

The role requires someone with excellent, hands-on industry experience motivating a full stack analytics function: partnering with engineering to strengthen data enablement as part of an agile team and driving the development of scalable, enterprise reporting that elevates the analytics understanding of the entire company.

You have learned how to be effective by empowering others, but sometimes you crank out your own analysis because you just can’t help yourself (even though it probably isn’t the most “rational” use of your time). You are passionate about iteration and testing and are near-obsessed with measuring impact. You desire to be a mentor and creative partner for your team, and your boundless curiosity is infectious. You know how to rise above the numbers and explain the essential idea to business users who don’t always understand how the sausage is made. You instinctively minimize complexity and focus on the value to be gained.


As Senior Director, you’ll define and communicate the team’s vision and roadmap, ensuring alignment to company strategies. You will coordinate with a large group of senior stakeholders to focus limited capacity on the priorities that create the most value. You will have ultimate ownership of the data product backlog for the Geography and will handle multiple squads to address concurrent needs. You’ll ensure your teams have the full context and understanding of functional needs and the business environment to craft valuable solutions. You will help the organization move from a focus on surfacing data to a focus on surfacing insights. You will track and seek to improve total team capacity by automating time-consuming tasks. As a leader of the data product team you will lead, mentor, and inspire multiple teams (performance, goals and development) and will handle costs and resource needs.


You will lead, mentor and inspire your team, monitoring individual performance, goals and development. You will work with stakeholders to understand current and future needs, define features, figure out success criteria, measure adoption, validate solutions and evaluate stakeholder satisfaction. You will work with key partners to build an effective Product Manager/Product Owner team, and to define Features and Epics. You’ll also collaborate with the Global Marketplace Analytics team, the Enterprise Data & Analytics team, and other Analytics teams throughout Nike to avoid duplication of effort and to seek coordinated solutions to common problems.
