Most companies define success by dollars earned. But we define our success by the number of lives changed. And that number is growing every day!

Founded in 1992 by Dave Ramsey, Ramsey Solutions exists to provide biblically based, commonsense education and empowerment that give HOPE to everyone in every walk of life.

If you're looking for a career with a purpose-keep reading.

We are looking for an Executive Director to lead our fast-growing Analytics Team. Think you have the chops to lead a talented group of twenty data analysts and data scientists? Read on . . .

An ideal candidate is someone who has a blend of executive leadership, business acumen, marketing and technical experience and is passionate about making data an actionable asset.

You will set the tone for the level of impact data can have across our company by actively driving a data-driven decision culture. You will be responsible for creating and owning our analytics strategy and roadmap with an aggressive focus on delivering relevant customer insights to help achieve business objectives. Additionally, you will partner closely as a consultant and trusted expert across several key areas, such as marketing, sales operations and product.

This is a dynamic and challenging role that needs someone who is visionary, yet aware of the "what must be true" to achieve goals; someone who has a firm grasp of analytics methodologies and principles to provide real guidance when there's a need for direction; someone who knows what a good model looks like; someone who gets the practical application of data, not just the mechanics; someone who understands that good data is governed data; someone who understands that the value of data is measured by how often it is acted upon; someone who understands the things that make data and data people (analysts, data scientists, engineers, etc.) different.

Here are the details:

What Winning Looks Like:

  • Lead and inspire a team of analytics professionals, and mentor them on best practices on data consumption, modeling, analytics, reporting and helping convert data into insights and actionable decisions

  • Set the vision, strategy and roadmap for analytics at Ramsey Solutions and communicate to stakeholders and company leadership.

  • Evangelize datainformed decision making and proactively identify analytics needs

  • Contribute to the definition of norms, standards and best practices for BI, data and analytics

  • Keep up to date with emerging analytics, insights and data management technologies and methodologies, and assess their relevance to our products and strategy

  • Head the management of internal business intelligence data initiatives, and communicate these priorities to stakeholders and company leadership

  • Be a key stakeholder around standardizing how data is sourced, integrated and consumed across the enterprise and aligned with the business strategy

  • Define and implement a sound governance program including roles and relationships, standards, policies and procedures that manage the quality, consistency, usability, and availability of information across the enterprise

  • Identify, assess and prioritize data-driven and data-dependent projects

Skills Needed to Win:

Made it this far? Great! Let's be sure you've got the following:

  • 10+ years of professional experience in analytics or similar field (e.g., actuarial science, statistics)

  • 5+ years of experience leading an analytics or data science team

  • Working experience with cloud-based data architecture (e.g., AWS, GCP, Azure)

  • Must have a "can do" attitude with an entrepreneurial mindset and be comfortable working in a fast-paced, unstructured environment where the need to innovate and execute fast is imperative for success

  • Mental flexibility, including ability to dive deep into details of the data to ensure quality while understanding the big picture objectives of a given project

  • Proven experience leading strategic design, delivery and governance of major cross-functional business efforts

  • Ability to understand complex issues and develop meaningful analyses and recommendations for executive management

  • Strong communication skills able to support independent viewpoints to senior leadership
