Senior Director of Global Sourcing & Manufacturing Analytics

Portland, Oregon

Become a Part of the NIKE, Inc. Team

NIKE, Inc. does more than outfit the world’s best athletes. It is a place to explore potential, obliterate boundaries and push out the edges of what can be. The company looks for people who can grow, think, dream and create. Its culture thrives by embracing diversity and rewarding imagination. The brand seeks achievers, leaders and visionaries. At NIKE, Inc. it’s about each person bringing skills and passion to a challenging and constantly evolving game.

As the Senior Director of Global Sourcing & Manufacturing Analytics, you will be a critical member of Nike’s GSM Center of Excellence (COE) leadership team. You will work closely with the COE and GSM leaders to understand the team’s strategic priorities, translate that into an analytics roadmap that uses sophisticated analytics, self-service reporting capabilities and ongoing ad hoc supply chain analysis. You will own the global vision for GSM analytics at Nike, blending both short-term EBIT-driving optimization opportunities and longer-term strategic objectives. Your role will be to build balanced, scalable data products that iterate and evolve over time as they continue to build measurable business value.

As a senior member of the analytics community at Nike, we want you to serve as an evangelist for the power of predictive analysis and develop business cases for presentations to key partners to illustrate demonstrated efficiency. You will help catalyze their thinking about what’s possible. You will think broadly and creatively about how data can be used to help all of Nike.

The role requires a leader with substantial, hands-on validated experience driving a full stack analytics function. In the role you will partner with engineering to strengthen data enablement on an agile team and lead teams of data scientists taking on weighty problems. As a Nike leader you will encourage the development of scalable, enterprise reporting that elevates the analytics understanding of the entire company.

You’ve reached the point in your career where you’ve learned how to be effective by empowering others, but sometimes you crank out your own analysis because you just can’t help yourself. We want someone passionate about iteration and testing and is borderline-obsessed with measuring impact! Do you desire to be a mentor and intellectual partner for your team? You like the word “incremental” when it is applied to a measurement or model but prefer “step change” when talking about driving business results!. You know how to rise above the numbers and explain the crucial idea to business users who don’t always understand how the sausage is made. You instinctively minimize complexity, focus on the consumer and strengthen value.
