  • Design, track and deliver on KPIs for the market and oversee the P&L
  • Use data, market tests, and business judgment to make decisions and prioritize market resources quickly
  • Manage, motivate and ensure the professional development of a large team of full-time employees, part-time employees and third party vendors
  • Identify partnership opportunities with 3rd party vendors that will build scale and ensure quality in Opendoor Homes
  • Be the key point of customer and market insight for Phoenix – collecting, analyzing and disseminating best practices from Phoenix to the rest of the company
  • Serve as a representative of Opendoor at local and regional events including realtor conferences and meetings with regulators and partners

We’re looking for an awesome individual who:

  • Is a well rounded all-star, with off the charts EQ

  • Finds analytics exciting and absorbing, with a knack for structuring analysis and translating data into insightful stories and impactful decisions
