Description

THE POSITION

Our roster has an opening with your name on it 

The Analytics, Vice President is expected to lead a team of analysts and data scientists, to assist in driving company objectives in areas such as Commercial, Marketing, Operations, Compliance, Finance and Legal. Success in this role will require driving delivery across the full spectrum of insights that can be gleaned from data, ranging from minor marketing campaign analysis to complex fraud or player behavior models. A combination of technical and leadership skills will be essential in ensuring that the team can consistently deliver the insights required, as well as continue to evolve in this fast-paced space.

THE GAME PLAN

  • Coaching and managing direct reports to develop teams in order to solve problems and create suitable solutions, while not micro-managing a highly skilled team. This role will focus less on actually doing analytics – although rolling up sleeves may be needed – and will focus more on how to coach resources, add new tools and approaches to be successful, and help when team is stuck trying to analyze problems.
  • Lead a team of Data Scientists, tasked with using data to provide both actionable forecasts and automated detection and decision models
  • Responsible for the delivery and maintenance of high-quality reports and tools
  • Ensure tests can be robustly analyzed and identifying opportunities to improve profitability and growth in an automated way

  • Co-ordinate with Flutter Group to ensure best practices are being shared globally and partner on common projects
  • Identify projects and drive to completion in order to enhance group analytic capabilities
  • Maintain a wider roadmap of high importance items working with senior leadership across the company to identify the highest priority areas to improve
