Portfolio Analytics Overview:

As an Analytics Manager you will be one of Enova’s most valuable resources. You will use creativity and innovative techniques to enhance and improve current statistical processes and methods.

You will be expected to communicate to senior management through discussion, presentations, and write-ups of results, recommendations and insights gained through data analysis to be used to develop strategic and operational plans.

It is imperative to have the ability to adjust on the fly as new information surfaces and priorities shift.  You will demonstrate the ability to maintain a thorough understanding of Enova’s products and businesses from a strategic standpoint, in addition to deep knowledge of underwriting/business analytics principles and strategies. You will facilitate close collaboration between team members and Technology & Operations groups on cross-functional projects to improve our verification processes.  Most importantly you will manage a small team of statistical analysts/modelers.

We’re excited about you if you have:

  • A Bachelor's, Master’s, PhD or equivalent experience

  • Advanced programming skills and the ability to write customized programs for meaningful data analysis
  • 2+ years of experience directly managing 3 or more employees
  • Proficiency in spreadsheet applications and advanced use of statistical applications
  • Advanced knowledge of statistical/econometric modeling
  • Strong business acumen and previous experience with process improvement as it relates to model building, automation, or other statistical methods.
  • Experience in project management
  • Willingness to take a very hands-on approach to model building

Our Analytics team:

Enova's Analytics team consists of over 60 quantitative professionals dedicated to using the latest cutting-edge techniques to drive business value.   We are a shared service for the entire company and operate in four core Analytics workgroups:

  • Portfolio Analytics – the portfolio team focuses on building cutting edge risk, pricing, and underwriting models to optimize our lending decisions by using advanced modeling and simulation techniques to optimize the performance of our loan products and operations.
  • Fraud Analytics – analysts on the fraud team use advanced data mining techniques to identify and fight online fraud.
  • Marketing Analytics – the marketing analytics team is focused on applying statistical analysis and predictive modeling to help our marketing teams acquire and retain more valuable customers.
  • Research and Platforms- the RAP team builds and maintains all of our technical tools and platforms.  They help investigate new analytics methodologies, use cases, and data sources, to institute new and best practices within the department.

At Enova we have a company-wide culture that emphasizes data-driven analysis. That means you spend less time presenting and more time with the fun part, crunching data! We are language agnostic, but primarily use Python, R, SAS, SQL and Mathematica. That means YOU get to pick the tool that works best for you and the analysis at hand.

What projects are you most excited about?

My job requires me to think about my work from many different angles, and often make decisions when there is no obvious 'right' answer. I really enjoy the opportunity of tackling new challenges and mastering different decision-making frameworks.

Monica

Sr Manager, Product Management

How does the company support your career growth?

Enova supported my career/growth with training when I started. In baseline, the training program for new software engineers, we were given the time to learn before joining a team. It was great to have dedicated time just focused on learning and getting acclimated to Enova before jumping into project work.

Elena

Software Engineer II

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Enova is willing to take a chance on you. When I started at Enova I had very little formal experience, and since then I have had 3 very different roles in the company and have done things I wouldn't have imagined were possible for me!
