Job Description

Nordstrom Card Services is seeking a Financial Data Analyst in its Finance Analytics group. The ideal candidate will have strong financial, forecasting, and analytical skills, enabling them to extract actionable insights from a wide range of data sources. Familiarity with SQL queries and strong Excel and PowerPoint skills are essential, and statistical analysis in SAS or R is preferred.

Essential Functions and Work Duties

  • Analytics
    • Develop & refine forecasts for key business drivers using various data elements such as internal data trends, future business initiatives, and macroeconomic indicators

      • An exploratory deep dive as to why a key performance indicator has changed year-over-year
      • Sizing the expected benefit of a marketing campaign and/or acquisition effort
      • Reviewing the benefit of campaigns to identify how well they worked, and how they can be improved in the future
    • Create key performance indicators and metrics and measure over time.
    • Collaborate with other Card Services departments, as well as Nordstrom, Inc. departments, to advise management on materiality and timing of campaigns, customer-level performance trends, and development of forecasted expectations.
