The Role

The Business Intelligence Manager deeply understands the needs of the organization and is well-versed in leveraging data infrastructure, analysts, and engineers to solve critical business problems. It’s the job of the BI Manager to bring insight to the organization.

One of GA’s seven work values is the mantra, “Always bring data to the conversation,” which reflects the important role that data plays in every decision. The Business Intelligence team is not only responsible for making sure that GA’s data infrastructure is user-friendly and accessible to employees across the organization, but also works closely with GA’s leadership team, providing them with data-driven insights that drive greater business performance.

The Business Intelligence team at GA is a small team with significant latitude to solve problems and build scalable solutions. For that reason, this position requires someone who is both a data leader as well as an individual contributor with excellent analytical skills. Additionally, candidates should have a wealth of experience implementing data-driven business solutions to draw from, be highly organized and thorough, be capable of tailoring communication to all levels of the organization from C-suite to engineers, and comfortable leading high-impact, high-visibility projects. Strong candidates will have experience adapting to the evolving needs of a high-growth B2C and B2B business and creating pragmatic and innovative solutions to complex business problems.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
