WBD is a premier global media and entertainment company offering audiences the world's most differentiated and complete portfolio of content, brands and franchises across television, film, sports, news, streaming and gaming. We're home to the world's best storytellers, creating world-class products for consumers. From brilliant creatives to technology trailblazers and beyond, join us as we step into the next chapter.

As a Manager of MerchandisingStrategy & Analysis, you will be joining the team responsible for championing a data-driven approach to editorial and merchandising activities in-app , developing frameworks and benchmarks for assessing performance, and providing insights and recommendations to leadership to influence decision making. This role requires a high level of collaboration with partners across WBD - the right person for this role is the kind of person who obsesses over details, thrives in ambiguity, and jumps at the opportunity to take on new challenges. The Manager position will play a key role in supporting relationships across teams and delivering high quality work in one of the highest priority business initiatives at Warner Bros Discovery.

Responsibilities

  • Develop frameworks and analyses for assessing key strategic questions facing the business, including such areas as:
    • What metrics should we use to assess performance - of our content, of our app, and more
    • How are our editorial and merchandising decisions impacting show performance
    • What is the optimal way for editorial activities to live alongside machine learning algorithms
  • Be an advocate for data-informed decision-making, making recommendations about how content performance should impact our merchandising choices
  • Help our merchandising teams become data self-sufficient, utilizing metrics, dashboards, and tools to understand performance
  • Collaborate with other teams, especially Data & Analytics, Business Intelligence, Tech, and Product to build the tools and processes necessary to drive strategy and analysis initiatives
  • Work with stakeholders across multiple offices and time zones
  • Provide insights to introduce recommendations to all discovery+ platforms in order to improve content consumption and increase subscriptions
  • Contribute to the development of the Merchandising function

Qualifications

  • Bachelor's Degree
  • 6-8 years of work experience, including 1-3 years in Consulting, Investment Banking, and/or Corporate Strategy -- particularly in the media and entertainment and / or direct-to-consumer space
  • Excellent analytical skills and financial modeling capabilities, with a deep attention to detail
  • Superior ability to synthesize the output from analyses, identify the "so-what," develop early hypotheses, and propose the next line of inquiry
  • Experience in building executive-level materials, with a keen eye for presentation design, and the ability to distill complex concepts and analyses into clear, easy-to-understand presentations
  • Possess a high level of intellectual curiosity, focus on generating results, and exhibit the highest personal and professional standards of integrity and ethics
  • Passion for entertainment, love for content and avid viewer, as well as a passion for staying on top of industry trends while figuring out what the future will look like with a relentless focus on creating and improving consumer value.
  • Collaborative and diplomatic by nature, but also willing to take and defend data- and analysis-backed positions in the ongoing process and dialogue around content selection.
  • The successful candidate must be motivated, disciplined, taking initiative and be able to work effectively autonomously.
  • Should be energetic, positive, and resilient with a demonstrated ability to influence, build relationships, and drive projects among cross-functional stakeholders in a fast-paced, constantly changing and deadline driven environment
  • Bonus points for modeling and statistical knowledge, such as forecasting, AB-testing, or statistical modeling and causal inference
  • Proficient in Adobe Analytics, Microstrategy, Tableau, Excel, and Google Suite (Docs, Sheets, Slides)
  • Exceptional organizational skills
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Team player
  • Familiarity with the Google Suite of collaboration software
