* Masters Degree in Statistics, Operations Research, Economics, Social Sciences or similar degree with a focus on statistical methodology (PhD preferred but not required).

* Programming experience in R or python (R strongly preferred).
* Proficient in SQL querying
* Experience managing a statistics team of at least two direct employees
* Excellent verbal, written and presentation skills.
* Ability to autonomously manage multiple projects simultaneously, in a rapidly changing environment.
* Dedication to innovation and continuous improvement.

Preferred Skills:
