The Nitty Gritty
The backstory on the organization and why they need to hire you!
Client finance practices at this media conglomerate are idiosyncratic, and they need an FP&A analyst who can standardize the whole lot for programmatic ad sales. You’ll oversee both the collection and management of the data, as well as the administration of client transactions. Plying your ever-expanding technical chops in SQL, Python, and as much Tableau as you can handle, you’ll become omniscient in financial operations using data science techniques.
Day to day, you’ll be advising on budgets, goal-pacing, and operating models — primarily for the programmatic business and traffic, but you may be called to help out other sectors, too. Wherever you’re working, you’ll be growing; your boss is beloved for turning can-do learners into done-that achievers.
What success looks like in your first year…
- You’ll take the helm of existing data analysis driving FP&A for ad sales/ programmatic revenue…
- …by using SQL, Tableau, and Looker to create more sophisticated predictive modeling techniques and data visualizations to provide better revenue projections…
- …thereby increasing the accuracy of forecasting across a broader range of KPIs.
How you’ll know if you’re a fit…

You take pleasure in formulating complex queries for client insights, and satisfaction in deriving sophisticated predictions from them. Your in-depth knowledge of programmatic advertising at a media outlet has you murmuring excitedly how perfect this job is for you.
You’re always elbow-deep in SQL algorithms and Python, building forecast models and doing CBAs. You’ve got at least enough experience in Tableau to put it on your resume, and you want to learn more.
