Intern, Strategy & Operations

| Chicago

Role Overview:

Enova’s Strategy & Operation teams - or “S&O” as insiders commonly refer to them here - drive the business at both the operational and business levels. In addition to working cross functionally on the corporate side, S&Os work closely with our call center operations (think application support, loan processing, collections or customer service) to ensure optimization and anticipate any bumps in the road. To do this, they dive deeper into our existing processes and ask themselves lots of questions like, why are we doing this that way? Why don’t we try this? And, likely the most important question, how is this going to affect the bottom line of our business?

The most successful people on our S&O team move quickly, ask thought provoking questions and are always using data to back their ideas.

Perks/Benefits: 

  • The office is located within walking distance to both Union Station and Ogilvie which makes it easy to commute from within the city or the suburbs. 
  • Commuter benefits, health care benefits, a 401K matching plan, summer hours, tuition reimbursement, and a sabbatical program.
  • Revamped parental leave program (and brand new nursing rooms for our returning mothers!) 

Your core priorities will be to:

  • Manage initiatives that focus on driving new projects, processes improvements and customer experience enhancements.
  • Evaluate vendor proposals, negotiate with external partners and collaborate with internal tech development teams to ensure that projects meet business requirements.
  • Anticipate bottlenecks, provide management escalation, prioritize and execute projects, balance business needs vs. technical constraints, ensure quality, and drive bottom line results.
  • Run ad hoc projects that are often data intensive and require comfort with numbers to make decisions.
  • Use intuition and experience to resolve operational issues on the fly.

What you should have:

  • Been working toward undergraduate or master’s degree in Industrial Engineering, Finance, or other quantitative degrees, or equivalent experience.
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills.
  • High energy, team player, creative thinker, and strategic influencer.
  • Demonstrated experience in working with broad cross-functional teams.
  • Maturity and good judgment. Skilled in negotiating, influencing others, analytical thinking, leading others, and executing and implementing projects.
  • Willingness to learn and work in a hands-on environment.
  • Advanced Excel modeling experience required. Prefer proficiency with SQL.

An Insider's view of Enova

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Enova encourages employees to own their work-life balance journey by providing an environment that allows them to be successful. Leaders value the results you create, rather than the number of hours in front of your desk to get to those results. Bottom line, people respect that you have your own unique working style, which is yours to discover.

What are some social events your company does?

Enova’s social calendar has something for everyone. Events range from comedy shows to bowling for charity. We host & sponsors events, including the Chicago Women in Tech conference and weekly meetups. It’s easy to find people with similar interests; if there’s something missing from Enova’s social list, make it happen! People will definitely join.
