AVP, Analytics & Data Transformation

Company: E*TRADE
Location: Jersey City
Posted on: June 4, 2021

Job Description:

More than 30 years ago, E*TRADE pioneered the online brokerage industry by executing the first-ever electronic individual investor trade. While the landscape of our industry has changed dramatically, our culture of innovation and drive to make online trading accessible to everyone continues to drive us forward. We believe in challenging the status quo, fostering an environment of curiosity and learning, and, above all, putting our customers first.

In 2020, ETRADE joined Morgan Stanley, signaling a major industry shift that brought Wall Street and Main Street together more than ever before. As ETRADE's parent company, Morgan Stanley plays an important role in expanding what we can offer to investors, though E*TRADE still functions as an independent entity.

The Analytics & Data (A&D) team owns all the management reporting, customer and product behavior insights, and predictive modeling for ETRADE's customers. The business transformation team within A&D is responsible for leading, structuring, and providing the "rocket fuel" for many of the key A&D projects. The team focuses on high-impact initiatives identified in partnership with senior executives and leaders throughout both ETRADE and Morgan Stanley.

You will engage teams across the organization to lead and execute business-impacting projects across the company. You will be responsible for managing projects including scoping, identifying major issues and actionable opportunities, and designing and implementing solutions, while providing real business and financial impact. As an AVP, you will oversee multiple workstreams and will collaborate with the team to build hypotheses, analyses, and develop and implement solutions. You will build relationships with key stakeholders across the organization and will lead meetings and presentations.

This role will report to the COO and Head of Business Transformation for E*TRADE's A&D team, joining a cohort of other ambitious and passionate teammates, driven by ideas and with a bias towards execution. We are looking for someone willing to think beyond traditional organizational structures and with a strong desire to experiment, build, and grow personally and professionally.

Examples of ongoing projects include: strategic cross-sell of customers to/from Morgan Stanley, Customer Level Profitability analysis and use-cases, integration of data lakes, unlocking additional analytical or predictive use-cases from existing data.
