About the team:

As a company at the forefront of the financial revolution, Nu has experienced exponential growth since its inception. To keep your growth path healthy, numerous critical decisions constantly need to be made. Business Analysts are fundamental in the decision process because they must not only be able to deal with large amounts of information and data, but also always think of ways to improve our clients' experience.

It is BA's responsibility to structure the data, analyze it and use the results to test different solutions with the aim of improving Nu's efficiency.

We are looking for a BA Sr Manager who is independent and not afraid to take the initiative to identify and solve problems that are not necessarily obvious.

About the role:

  • Lead a high-performing multidisciplinary team of Engineers, Designers and Product Managers.
  • Define backlog, prioritize activities, own the analytical agenda of a complex initiative and align with multiple groups and stakeholders to deliver a comprehensive solution to key business problems;
  • Guide team in research work, focusing on deciding which data makes the most sense to use in each situation. In case the data does not exist, will need to suggest different test options or how to extract the necessary information to answer outstanding questions;
  • Influence decisions based on high complexity analysis with a high degree of uncertainty and possible intersections with other areas (engineering, product, etc) with the objective of finding answers and solutions to business situations, comfortable with the process risk taking despite uncertainty;
  • Work autonomously with a great volume of information to build a solid database to assist decision making with calculating risks - keeping in mind that not all answers might be found in data and that sometimes not all the ideal data is available;
  • Perform extraction, modeling and create visualizations using data using tools (SQL, Python and Scala) that contribute to the storytelling of the data analysis;
  • Have a good command of the business and how it works, preventing risks and creating sound proposals;

What we’re looking for:

  • Strong experience leading multidisciplinary teams (Designers, Engineers, BAs, etc).
  • Analytical capacity: experience with data analysis and elaboration of hypotheses to understand the business scenario and search for solutions, as well as understanding the reason behind the analyses;
  • Business sense: understanding of risks and opportunities (trade-offs), in addition to the interaction between areas and products;
  • Problem solving: ability to structure solutions to business challenges to achieve better results;
  • Ability to understand how your decisions and work impact our customers' experience, seeking results that align with our purpose;
  • Openness to receive feedback and incorporate it into your daily life and development;
