Digital Applied Analytics Analyst

Description

AlixPartners, a top tier-consulting firm, is seeking candidates for our team of highly successful analytics consultants.  If you have a passion for “wowing” business leaders with exceedingly progressive analytics techniques, working with managers who “get” the work you are doing and support your efforts fully, consistently jumping into new projects focused on innovation rather than “minding the lever” of past projects, working alongside a highly professional and astute team with IT Infrastructure and Predictive Analytic Modeler support that’s lightning fast to jump to your aid, then AlixPartners is the place for you.

 

Our Applied Analytics experts work within integrated teams from enterprise improvement to turnaround and restructuring; meaning the jobs we do cover the gamut of every layer of business.  Along with this, our seasoned professionals are recognized as experts in their respective fields, leveraging their skills and experience to create measurably improved outcomes for our clients.  In this challenging role, you will be responsible for using your new-age analytics skillset to drive both revenue and cost improvements for your clients in ‘high stakes’ situations.

 

Specifically, in your role as an Applied Analytics Consultant at AlixPartners, you will help Client organizations tackle their complex business problems with an analytical, data-driven approach. You will gain exposure to diverse set of industries, clients, and project roles. You will help define the business objectives, conduct client interviews, assess performance and effectiveness, and design analysis and/or build predictive and prescriptive models and be challenged to then present the business case for the value of these models to your client.  Some examples of past work include predicting store performance for retailers, customer retention for telecoms, cross-selling opportunities for banks, hotel occupancy for the hospitality industry, Sales and Marketing Effectiveness for Technology companies.  I hope that this sounds like the work environment you are looking for.

 

This position can be located in Boston, New York, Dallas, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco or London.
