Pricing Revenue Analyst
Looking for an opportunity with a dynamic, fun, and goal-oriented company? We’re growing quickly and we’re looking for some not-so-typical talent to join our team.
Progress Residential® is one of the largest providers of high-quality, single-family rental homes in the United States. With more than 40,000 homes across some of the fastest-growing markets, our residents appreciate the flexibility, freedom, and convenience of living in a single-family home without the obligations of home ownership.
Progress is committed to making the home rental process easy and enjoyable for the 100,000+ residents we serve by empowering our team members and investing in innovative systems and technology. Our portfolio has continued to grow substantially the past few years and we see increasing demand for professionally managed single-family rental homes and anticipate continued growth.
The Pricing Revenue Analyst role is an exciting position solely responsible for helping to make our PRM team the best in class. This position will support the revenue management team at Progress through analytics, innovation, and challenging the status quo. With SFR (Single Family Rentals) still in the early innings of its application of PRM (Pricing/Revenue Management) , we will rely on this person to use direction but also intellectual curiosity to drive analysis that results in innovation. This position will be allowed the freedom to explore all topics and opportunities when it comes to the financial success of both Progress and PR3M (Progress 3rd Party Management). This position will provide primary analytical support to the Pricing and Revenue Management team members but will also work on exciting projects that have the potential to be presented to our senior management team. With our proprietary revenue management software still in its infancy, we will look to this person to evaluate the system with a fresh perspective, look for ways to improve, develop hypothesis, test and/or prove the concept, and put together a case for institutionalizing the outcome. The primary analytical support of the department will include regular reporting duties, proofs of concept of pricing system enhancements, operation’s research, and special projects that benefit our investors. This position plays a critical role in helping Progress and PR3 (Progress’ new third party fee management operator) maximize revenue growth by implementing data-driven pricing strategies with our state of the art, tech-enabled platform. This newly created role represents an exciting career track and a great chance to innovate and grow with our business!
