The role will leverage top class analytical skills spanning from data modelling and visualization to insights generation, excellent communication skills, and the ability to understand and support business needs. Key to the success of this role will be the ability to provide relevant insights with a key eye for detail, generated from Disney+ data as well as leveraging the full breadth of customer research, market and business intelligence available within the business. Close collaboration with other analysts as well as business stakeholders will also be key.

  • Deliver insight that is both timely and accurate. Although the initial focus of this role is around reporting, there will be many opportunities to be involved across the whole analytical insight spectrum
