Sr. FinOps Analyst

As a Senior Systems Analyst, you’ll play a critical role on our FinOps practice, wielding your expertise in cloud platforms and software usage to optimize spend and ensure efficient resource utilization. You’ll work closely with Engineers, Product Managers and business leaders to translate cloud spend into actionable insights, informing product decisions and mitigating the need for additional resources.

In this role, you’ll:

  • Develop cost-reduction strategies. You’ll forecast future resource consumption and identify opportunities to optimize spending on cloud services like AWS EC2 and GCP MediaCDN.
  • Build a chargeback model. By designing a data model to allocate cloud and software costs to internal services and customer contracts, you’ll help ensure transparency and accountability.
  • Automate processes. You’ll streamline your work by automating month-end processes and keeping your forecasts continuously updated.
  • Improve communication and collaboration. As a stakeholder partner, you’ll translate complex data into clear narratives, driving informed decision-making.

We’d like to hire someone for this role who lives near our office in Lincoln or Omaha, Nebraska, but we’re also open to remote candidates in Chicago, Kansas City, Austin, Dallas, Phoenix, or Boston.

Must-Haves

  • A data-driven mind. You can easily identify trends, forecast usage, and translate complex information into actionable insights for stakeholders.
  • Cloud cost optimization expertise. You have a proven track record of optimizing cloud spend on platforms like AWS and GCP, including experience with reservation strategies and committed use discounts.
  • Enthusiasm. You’re passionate about cloud technology and maximizing its value for end users.
  • Technical proficiency. You possess a strong understanding of cloud platforms (AWS, GCP), data analysis tools (SQL, DBT), and scripting languages (Python). (Experience with Terraform for managing cloud infrastructure permissions is a plus.)
  • Excellent communication and collaboration skills. You can effectively communicate complex data and financial information to both technical and non-technical audiences, fostering collaboration across all levels of the organization.

Nice-to-Haves

  • Experience with infrastructure automation. You have experience with scripting or automation tools to streamline processes related to cloud resource management and cost analysis.
  • FinOps best practices. You understand and can implement FinOps principles to improve cloud financial management.
  • Vendor management experience. Prior experience managing relationships with cloud vendors like AWS and GCP would be beneficial.
  • Software licensing knowledge. Familiarity with software license management practices would be an added bonus.

Our Role

  • Champion work-life harmony. We’ll give you the flexibility you need in your work life (e.g., flexible vacation time, company-wide holidays and timeout (meeting-free) days, remote work options and more) so you can enjoy your personal life too.
  • Guarantee autonomy. We have an open, honest culture and we trust our people from day one. Your team will support you, but you’ll own your work and have the agency to try new ideas.
  • Encourage career growth. We’re lifelong learners who encourage professional development. We’ll give you tons of resources and opportunities to keep growing.
  • Provide an environment to help you succeed. We’ve invested in our offices, designing incredible spaces with our employees in mind. But whether you’re at the office or working remotely, we’ll provide you the tech stack and hardware to do your best work.
  • Support your mental and physical health. We care about our employees’ wellbeing. Our Employee Assistance Program, employee resource groups and fitness partner Peerfit have you covered.
  • Cover your medical insurance. We have multiple plans to pick from to ensure you’ll have the coverage you (and your dependents) want, including vision, dental, fertility healthcare and family forming benefits.
  • Contribute to your 401(K). Yep, that’s free money. We’ll match up to 4% of your own contribution.
