Let’s get to business. We’re hiring the next class for Avant’s Data Rotational Program (ADRP). This 6-month program is designed to teach driven candidates the data and analytics skills necessary to become key contributors at Avant.
Each ADRP class undergoes a 6-month data bootcamp where they will experience intensive data training and be introduced to the organization through a wide variety of project work. During this period, candidates will spend time on both Avant’s Business Intelligence and Data Management teams learning data skills, key programming languages and understanding the ins and outs of our business. Candidates who successfully complete the bootcamp will graduate to a high-priority role on one of Avant’s analytics or product teams.
In the past, ADRPs have:
- Built a complex cash-flow model in Python to optimize cash management and inform funding strategies
- Launched major product enhancements like Originations Fees
- Designed and built significant portions of our Data Lake including key ETL pathways
- Evaluated, negotiated, and onboarded new marketing affiliates
- Conceived and implemented new reporting frameworks for financial analysis
We are looking for self-driven candidates who are hungry to learn and are excited by the prospect of working on challenging problems. Due to the nature of these projects, you will work with the company’s senior leadership on a regular basis and will become comfortable juggling multiple high-priority projects at a time.
- Bachelor’s Degree in engineering, computer science, mathematics, statistics, finance, or other technical fields
- 2-4 years of experience in an analytical or technical role
