Finance Operations and Analytics Associate

 

Finance Operations and Analytics Associate

San Francisco | California | United States

Millions of people across the world come to Pinterest to find new ideas every day. It’s where they get inspiration, dream about new possibilities and plan for what matters most. Our mission is to help those people find their inspiration and create a life they love. As a Pinterest employee, you’ll be challenged to take on work that upholds this mission and pushes Pinterest forward. You’ll grow as a person and leader in your field, all the while helping users make their lives better in the positive corner of the internet. As a founding member of a small, newly formed Finance Operations & Analytics team, you’ll focus on implementing scalable systems and processes that provide metrics visibility for our senior leaders, enable business analysts to generate insights, and power our mission-critical reporting as a public company. We're looking for someone who loves data visualization and metrics, deep systems thinking, and has a “get stuff done” mindset. You’ll build the backbone for how the Finance organization (and Pinterest more broadly) is managed.

What you’ll do:

  • Build business-critical reporting solutions. You will work closely with business analysts and leaders across Finance to build and maintain the core data workflows and management dashboards senior executives use on a daily basis to understand the health of the business, as well as with our BI and Data Engineering teams to build the source-of-truth datasets that power them. You will be the Program Manager and Technical Lead for the company’s top-level business health KPIs and dashboards.
  • Drive major analytics and automation projects. As the business continues to grow in complexity, you will find opportunities across Finance to drive increased efficiency through automation, and partner with our IT and Engineering teams to implement new tools or better leverage our internal ones for Finance processes.
  • Facilitate data and metrics governance processes. You will work with cross-functional teams including Finance, Accounting, Legal, Compliance, and Engineering to ensure business-critical metrics quality and accuracy, and help with implementing data access controls and policies critical to operating as a public company.

What we're looking for:

  • Deep experience with advanced BI tools and SQL. You have 4+ years of experience in analytical and data roles using data visualization tools including Tableau, and have built complex dashboard systems optimized for self-serve use by non-technical business users.
  • An advanced SQL user that can quickly navigate our data environment in a self-serve way. Basic knowledge of a handy scripting language such as Python is a plus.
  • Strong business intuition and technical depth. You can quickly grasp the “why” behind a set of metrics for a given area of the business and think about the story we want to tell at the executive level, and organize this in a structured, visually compelling way that maximizes signal-to-noise, while also deeply understanding the data architecture that’s needed under the hood.
  • Entrepreneurial self-starter and a growth mindset. You thrive in a fast-moving, ambiguous environment, and are independently capable of seeking information, corralling resources, influencing cross-functional stakeholders and their priorities, and delivering results without waiting for direction. 
  • Strong project management and communication skills. You are equally comfortable interfacing with business analysts, engineers, lawyers, and senior executives, can explain technical topics at the appropriate level of detail for each audience, and can project manage a complex roadmap that appropriately balances the needs of these varying stakeholders.
