We've all found apps we love and apps that have changed our lives. Apps transform the ways we learn, work, travel, have fun, and pursue our passions.

Apple's App Store is the world's largest and most innovative software store, serving more than half a billion customers every week. Over the last 13 years, the App Store has brought gaming to new audiences across 175 countries and, today, iOS is the most popular gaming platform in the world. But we believe we're just getting started.

We are looking for a curious, creative, and analytical individual that is excited to help the App Store think different.

You will support performance reporting and analysis for App Store growth initiatives. In this role, you will work closely with the App Store teams to understand their key programs, identify metrics to measure impact, and create quantitative approaches that facilitate accurate and efficient modeling and reporting. In addition, you will collaborate with teams across Apple to pinpoint opportunities in new and existing service lines and develop the strategic and financial rationale to evaluate these opportunities. In time, you will be expected to develop a reputation as a trusted and strategic thought partner not only across the App Store, but also with external business partners.

Key Qualifications

  • 4+ years experience in strategy and/or finance, preferably in software technology or related sectors
  • Intellectual curiosity coupled with thorough and rigorous critical thinking skills
  • You have extraordinary quantitative skills with high proficiency in Excel and Tableau. (SQL / Python experience a plus)
  • Excellent presentation, communication and interpersonal skills, with strong attention to detail
  • Proven ability to build foster trust with internal and external stakeholders that facilitate knowledge-sharing, debate, and support
  • Proven ability to cut through competing priorities and consistently drive high quality results against the workstreams that matter most
  • A focus on thinking deeply and creatively about problems, principles, and dependencies rather than just getting to an answer

- Self-directed, in-depth research on market dynamics within and adjacent to the App Store's business
- Designing and building financial models to forecast the impact of product, policy, and partnership decisions

- Creating robust conceptual frameworks that combine empirical, theoretical, and visual approaches to guide the App Store's strategy
