BI Analyst, ComiXology – NY
ComiXology is the leading source of comic books in digital form, and was recently acquired by Amazon. Amazon considers comiXology to be a key growth opportunity in the digital comics space.
The mission of the comiXology Business Intelligence team is to give decision makers the information and insights they need to make the best possible decisions. Our BI team supports the data needs of diverse functional groups at comiXology and at other Amazon business units involved in the marketing and sale of digital comics worldwide. We also provide data and analysis to important third-party partners, such as publishers who provide content to us. Our proprietary data and analysis are important value-added elements of our partners’ relationship with us.
As a member of our Business Intelligence team, you will work closely with marketing, merchandising, accounting, finance, business development, account management, technology, and digital production teams, providing them with data and insights. You will not just supply data, you will interpret it and help the audience understand the key takeaways and potential for specific action based on the data. You will produce standardized and ad-hoc reports and visualizations that help guide decision making at all levels of the Company.
The Business Intelligence team is a key asset of comiXology. It reports to our SVP-Business Development and Operations, and works closely with our CEO and senior executives at other Amazon business units.
