    Alright I'm hooked. So what’s the Job?

    SilverRock, a DriveTime Partner, is the Ancillary Product Administrator for our vehicles. The SilverRock interns will be learning how analytics plays a key role within a data driven company. They will begin by learning about company databases and basic SQL syntax used to extract information. Once they gain this basic understanding, we will teach them more advanced Data extraction techniques using Excel formulas, DAX and SQL to build upon what they have just learned. Our interns will then learn fundamentals around data presentation and use industry tools (Excel, Tableau, Powerpoint) to present findings.

     

    Interns will be taught about our internal reporting to get a better understanding of our business model, learn about the different segments of our business, and interact with the business leaders. As the internship progresses they will have the opportunity to tackle real questions and identify key trends that lead to insights and make an impact to our business. Lastly, our interns will get the opportunity to present their findings to business stakeholders throughout the company.
