IMAX is seeking a Senior Analyst to support the growth and development of our core Film Distribution business.  The ideal candidate will be responsible for providing detailed quantitative and qualitative analysis to inform business-critical decision-making that will expand and grow the performance of the core Hollywood slate as well as our burgeoning local language offerings.

The position requires leading end-to-end analytical projects from business planning, financial modeling, and performance analyses.  Beyond analysis and modeling, the role is an opportunity to craft real executable and actionable plans.  You will be equally adept at building high-quality business cases through numbers, charts, and visualizations and providing measurable, actionable recommendations to optimize day-to-day operations and long-term strategic planning.  You will enable leadership to define a clear business roadmap that is data-driven, highly collaborative, and operationally sound. You will also be a subject matter expert on the core theatrical business and thrive in a fast-paced, entrepreneurial environment where you are expected to deliver high-impact work under tight deadlines.

What You’ll Do:

  • Structure, develop and present insightful analysis to provide business clarity around product/market fit, commercialization, and monetization/revenue strategy across the core theatrical business

  • Create comprehensive business plans and memos that drive stakeholder/partner consensus; constantly explore new value creation by iterating and enhancing existing business models.

  • Support new strategy, data analytics, and reporting processes that optimize day-to-day business planning and operations

  • Data mine, store, analyze and visualize data across a variety of business and industry sources; create informative, well-organized presentations that contribute to overall business needs and goals; and identify potential growth and investment opportunities

  • Build robust financial and data models with predictive outcomes and formulate business/financial recommendations to secure stakeholder buy-in

  • Develop repeatable project workstreams to translate ideas and strategies into clear, actionable business and commercial use cases for stakeholders, partners, and customers

  • Work closely with leadership to operationalize success at multiple levels of the organization through prioritization of core business objectives and disciplined product roadmap planning

What You’ll Need:

  • Degree in an analytical field such as mathematics, computer science, business, or a related quantitative field with an MBA preferred or equivalent work experience

  • 3+ years of analytical work experience in streaming, entertainment, consumer technology, direct-to-consumer, or related field

  • Strong Microsoft Office Suite skills, particularly with Excel and PowerPoint

  • Experience with Tableau or a similar data visualization software

  • Experience leading end-to-end analytic projects (planning, design, hands-on development, stakeholder management, communication, and maintenance)

  • Experience collecting, validating and analyzing data. Must be able to manipulate data, develop visualizations, triangulate and summarize results

Nice to Have:

  • A creative and innovative individual, with the ability to simplify, communicate and sell ideas across the organization

  • A passion for accuracy and translating insights into a compelling narrative; able to maintain a balance between the details and the larger picture

  • Assertive, self-empowered and possesses a sense of urgency with a commitment to deliver
