About the Role:  

The Senior Pricing Analyst will play a multifaceted role within the organization by building a best-in-class pricing analytics function while also getting exposure to new pricing initiatives and building business cases in support of Product Marketing.  You will use a data-driven approach to make strategic recommendations and drive understanding of our fast-growing business that will make a measurable impact on Planet’s growth objectives.

You are a self-starter, independent thinker, deeply analytical and detail-oriented, a problem-solver, and capable of working in a structured manner to thrive in ambiguity. You have a tendency to roll up your sleeves, slice and dice large sets of information, and build solutions to problems that have not been taken on yet.  You will help shape what pricing analytics will look like at Planet.  You will also help support implementation of new packaging by creating pricing tools that make migration from old models easy for Sales to execute.

This role can be remote.

  • Provide support to the Pricing Committee process as needed, including help shepherd proposals through the vetting process
  • Analyzing sales data to determine pricing needs, including setting new prices or adjusting existing ones
  • Supporting pricing analysis related to acquisitions

What You Bring:

  • Minimum of 4 years relevant experience analyzing data and driving actionable results; high preference will be given to someone with specific Pricing analytics experience
  • Familiarity with data visualization tools and databases
