What We'll Bring

At TransUnion, we have a welcoming and energetic environment that encourages collaboration and innovation – we’re consistently exploring new technologies and tools to be agile. This environment gives our people the opportunity to hone current skills and build new capabilities, while discovering their genius.

Come be a part of our team – you’ll work with great people, pioneering products and cutting-edge technology.

What You'll Bring

You will draw on your extensive experience in consumer lending to drive thought leadership initiatives.

You are highly credentialed, with a minimum of 14 years of experience in increasingly senior roles at multiple financial institutions and/or consulting firms with a focus on retail banking, lending, or risk management.

You are also highly educated, with an advanced degree in business, statistics, analytics, operations research, finance, banking, or another related field.

You can work effectively across multiple internal teams.

You have an innate, unquenchable curiosity to understand why consumers and businesses behave the way they do.

You have tenacity—finding the answer to a difficult question is a challenge you enjoy.

You do not let obstacles hinder you; rather, you find innovative approaches to resolve, overcome or otherwise avoid those obstacles.

You are adept at managing a team of contributors to an initiative and maintaining their enthusiasm, even when they don’t report to you.

You are an expert with the Microsoft Office product suite, particularly Word, Excel and PowerPoint.

You are an eloquent speaker, equally comfortable addressing an audience of 4, 40 or 400.

You are comfortable discussing concepts at all levels of an organization, from entry-level analyst to CEO. You have the ability to tailor your conversational approach to the audience—technical where you need to be, and strategic where appropriate, but always aimed at answering the business question.

You have a strong customer service orientation. You mean it when you ask, “How can I be of service?” You recognize that internal customers are as important as external customers.

Impact You'll Make

You will support the development of- and lead efforts to improve sales fluency and sophistication when discussing industry concepts and trends across a range of lending concepts and functions.

You will represent qualified expertise and immediate credibility on joint sales calls with acceptance as the subject matter expert, quotable resource and as the acknowledged industry consultant. In doing so, you will establish strong customer relationships built on trust, credibility, integrity, mutual respect and a sense of shared purpose.

You will attend various industry association functions and seminars to maintain your knowledge of industry trends, best practices and competitive product offerings. By staying abreast of industry changes, you will maintain your own expertise in our dynamic industry. You will also educate/inform both internal TransUnion management and also our customers regarding the impact of industry dynamics on customers and TransUnion clients.
