About the job

At Google, data drives all of our decision-making. As a part of the Business Intelligence Team, you'll be using data to inform business and product decisions across the company. When a feature on one of our products -- from Google+ to Search to YouTube -- gets tweaked, you'll work with finance and engineering teams to measure the impact of that change. Using your technical skills and business acumen, you'll build tools to automate reporting and dashboard updates so clients can see quickly and accurately how projects are performing. You'll be involved from project inception to report design through to data delivery, ensuring that your reports are delivering high-quality and relevant data so that our business can grow intelligently.

The Business Operations, Strategy and Analytics team provides the critical strategic support and business insights needed by the Google Play Commercial Operations team to accelerate/optimize innovations globally, including crafting growth strategies, market prioritization, monitoring the current business, reporting promotional results, evaluating new features, and deep dives to identify new business opportunities.

As the Senior Business Analyst, you'll combine a love of data with great business acumen and communication skills, and develop strategies with meaningful insight from user behavior globally. You'll have great attention to detail and summarize with brevity. Your work will help the business team shape product development and strategic decision-making, with the goal of increasing performance and achieving success. You'll provide quantitative support, market understanding, and a strategic perspective to our partners throughout the organization. You'll relish tallying up the numbers one minute and communicating your findings to a team leader the next.
