Become a Part of the NIKE, Inc. Team

NIKE, Inc. does more than outfit the world's best athletes. It is a place to explore potential, obliterate boundaries and push out the edges of what can be. The company looks for people who can grow, think, dream and create. Its culture thrives by embracing diversity and rewarding imagination. The brand seeks achievers, leaders and visionaries. At Nike, it's about each person bringing skills and passion to a challenging and constantly evolving game.

Innovation is oxygen for Nike, and the company depends on its talented, global workforce to breathe originality and curiosity into everything they do. The Nike Advanced Innovation team strives for lighter, faster, bigger, smarter, smaller, more efficient, more sustainable and more personal. They imagine, research, analyze and invent the next industry-changing technology to advance athletic performance. In roles that span research, design, materials and manufacturing, the Advanced Innovation team looks to the future and focuses on making the seemingly impossible, possible.

The Sustainability Analytics team supports Nike's sustainability strategy with data-driven insights and tools.

ROLE SUMMARY: Logical, detail-oriented analyst to help with sustainability projects involving scenario planning, portfolio evaluation, and life cycle assessments. Collaborate with a small team within a large, global organization, taking ownership of given work and proactively self-motivating to remove roadblocks with missing or messy data.

ROLE PURPOSE AND BACKGROUND: The Analytics team needs support for its three lead sustainability experts / data scientists. Support will be provided by: data handling (cleansing, manipulation, testing); data analysis; process mapping; identifying gaps in information; and summarizing the sustainability insights to drive project completion. This is a high-functioning team with multiple projects and executive stakeholders; therefore, this role must provide value to the rest of the team.

We believe that great things are more likely to happen with the right culture. Life should be challenging, and the challenge should be fun. Teams that create and nurture a collaborative culture will excel.

We believe in messy learning within a culture of collaboration. We believe in being comfortable with the uncomfortable. We believe in meaningful, powerful, and intentionally connected experiences. This is the power of networks. We believe that innovation takes place through the collective effort of many people with a diversity of thought, experience, background, culture and skills.

Great work does not drive action, communication does. The Analytics team understands that communication is not the last mile of a project. Rather it is a thread woven throughout the process. To this end, we strive to:

• Actively seek insights and input from the right partners early and often.
• Define the communication tools, methods and opportunities in project planning
• Say less, listen more
• Tailor communications to the audience.
• Actively develop communication skills that are true to each teammate.
• Make the complex simple.

• Bachelor of Science in applied science, mathematics, economics or sustainability required
• 3-5 years in professional or academic within analytics, sustainability, mathematics, science or economics
• Graduate degree in applied science, mathematics, economics or sustainability a plus
