As a Sr. Supply chain analyst, you will be building and analyzing plans for cars in rental and car sales fleet. You will help determine what cars Hertz should buy from the portfolio of models offered by the car manufacturers, where should they be delivered, how long should we run them, and when is the optimal time to sell them.
We are looking for analysts who enjoy being in the middle of business and data science. You will help translate for the business what the optimization models are recommending. You will also use your skill to ensure the model recommendations make business sense and make changes when necessary. To build and maintain a fleet plan, you would be expected to keep the inputs to the models updated with latest information from procurement, demand, and car sales teams. Understanding the output of the optimization model is like solving a jig-saw puzzle. You will analyze the plan to answer questions from internal clients and explain why the recommendation is optimal. Understanding of the mathematical optimization model is key to explain why it is generating a certain output. With your deep understanding, you will be able to make recommendation to accept the output or improve it.
In addition to maintaining the plan, you will also run scenarios. These scenarios are typically geared towards helping the company make strategic change in direction. They also help evaluate various offers from the manufacturers. You will also be building automation around reporting and own projects to help improve planning process. This could involve building visualizations in Tableau, writing SQL or Python code for building data model.
As Sr. Supply chain analyst, you will develop end to end understanding of the planning process to be able to independently support internal clients. The goal of fleet planning is to minimize the cost of fleet while ensuring we have the right car at the right time and place. You will bring your experience to the table in finding opportunities and implementing process improvements to reduce cost, improve utilization, or take more rental demand.
