Business Analyst III

0 people like this description

The team is looking for a strong business analyst to help develop a playbook for inventory monitoring and analysis and connecting these insights to customer demand for our Local offerings.

The core of this work will involve analyzing inventory opportunities and gaps along dimensions such as availability, demand, price competitiveness, etc., for individual sellers specifically. This is particularly complex because our inventory comprises a shifting mix of seller listings, and each seller differs in their business model and approach to their business.

The business analyst will help determine the right method and cadence to create actionable insights to be used within the eBay business to drive the Local strategy as well as in communicating to sellers to drive their selection and pricing decisions.

This person may also work on Best Match (search prioritization) analysis and monitoring, as well as other seller-related analyses as further needs are identified.

• Exceptional data mining and quantitative analytic ability. Hands-on data analytics experience is a must
• Strong academic profile with an emphasis on quantitative coursework (e.g., degree in Mathematics/Statistics, Computer Science, Economics, Engineering, MBA)
• Expert Excel / PowerPoint skills and basic understanding of data warehouse architecture are required
• Proficiency with statistical analysis tools (e.g., SAS, SPSS) and experience with SQL is a plus
• Experience in product / web analytics is strongly preferred
• 4+ years of experience, ideally in web analytics or at a leading management consulting, financial services or marketing company
• Business experience at a retail company a plus
• Strong interpersonal skills including ability to present insights and recommendations persuasively.
• Past experience demonstrating strong focus on client needs in an analytical environment is a plus
