The Strategic Operational Finance team develops business models, financial reporting, and strategies for Wayfair's major supply chain and operations initiatives. The Senior Manager of WDN Operational Finance will lead several critical and highly visible analytical projects for Wayfair's Delivery Network (WDN) - Wayfair's in-house large package delivery network.

Expected to be a top performer as both a "leader" and a "doer," you will be the point person on several Large Parcel projects that you will manage and execute. The ideal candidate is highly analytical and self-motivated with experience working with and analyzing the performance of operational businesses. This person is adept at translating business issues into analyses, building the relevant models and communicating results and recommendations to diverse audiences (up to C-level on a regular basis). He/she has demonstrated success in leveraging data to drive decision-making. The ideal candidate can balance quantitative analysis and critical business thinking with effective communication of tangible results and actions. Candidate will be able to work at both a strategic level (understanding the business issues) and at a tactical level (pivoting between projects in real-time, digging into data to understand and report trends, and managing junior colleagues who may be assisting in analyses). Candidate also thrives in a fast-paced environment and can take on new responsibilities quickly.

  • Act as the "CFO" of the Large Parcel operations and initiatives, providing financial analysis/reporting and thoughtful strategic insights

  • Deliver seamless, cohesive analyses and reporting to senior leaders across the company

  • Become the go-to person for the GM of Transportation on any financial inquires, analyses and requests

  • Build financial and operational infrastructure for top initiatives (models, reporting, trend analysis, etc.)

  • Work collaboratively on data needs with cross-functional groups, including Analytics, Finance, Marketing, Pricing, Operations and Engineering

  • Hire, manage, and develop other business analyst(s)

What You'll Need

  • Bachelor's Degree in mathematics, engineering or another quantitative based field

  • 5+ years of experience in data analytics and/or other modeling

  • Strong analytical and critical thinking skills

  • Expertise in Excel, SQL and/or other programming languages

  • Resourcefulness in obtaining data when clean and or complete information is not available

  • Creativity to build structure around loosely defined projects

  • Entrepreneurial spirit, self-reliant and able to motivate others

  • Track record of success in managing and developing a team

  • Senior presence with thoughtful, articulate communication style adaptable to the audience

  • Tenacity to develop ideas independently and thrive in a fast-paced start-up environment

  • Strong work ethic and sense of ownership to see projects through to completion

  • Experience working with FedEx and/or UPS preferred but not required
