That’s Nice, But What’s the Job?

 

In short, as an Analyst, Loss Mitigation, you will apply your analytical and strategic skills as you initiate, build, and develop the business case for major company initiatives.  What’s great about loss mitigation is you will see immediate impacts to the company’s P&L from strategies that you develop and deploy.

 

In long, our loss mitigation analysts are responsible for:

  • Unfortunately, some customers will default on their loan obligations. It is this job’s role to develop strategies that recover money while doing so with empathy
  • Formulating, developing and instituting business strategies in loss mitigation, recoveries, repossession, and remarketing to reduce net losses
  • Partnering with product, tech, data science, and operation teams to implement data driven strategies and decision engines

  • Driving large analytical initiatives to reveal step-change improvements in operational and transaction profitability of the business.
  • Effectively communicate with concise insights and/or visualizations utilizing software such as Tableau while partnering collaboratively with colleagues and senior leaders in the organization.
  • Leveraging emerging technologies and critical thinking skills to continually innovate and automate existing methodologies, processes, and reporting. Design, develop, test, and implement new products and solutions.

So What Kind of Folks Are We Looking for?

  • Intellectual curiosity. Why? What? How?  Do you find yourself always wanting to learn more and broaden your knowledge base?  If so, this could be the role for you.
  • Passionate and goal-oriented. We are looking for someone that is enthusiastic about their work and is passionate about not only meeting their goals but exceeding them.
  • Killer analytical and reporting abilities. You’ll need the capability to analyze data and in return, prepare timely reports on your findings.
  • Master multi-tasker. We are looking for someone that is not only good at multi-tasking but thrives in it.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills. The ability to talk and write with confidence, charisma and competence for a wide variety of audiences including management.
  • A mind for the details. Okay we know “detail-oriented” is on about every job description – but we really mean it! 

The Specifics.

  • Bachelor's or Master's degree in a quantitative field such as economics, engineering, finance, statistics, mathematics, or hard science.
  • Advanced Excel skills

Nice to Haves.
