You Lead the Way. We’ve Got Your Back. At American Express, we know that with the right backing, people and businesses have the power to progress in incredible ways. Whether we’re supporting our customers’ financial confidence to move ahead, taking commerce to new heights, or encouraging people to explore the world, our colleagues are constantly redefining what’s possible — and we’re proud to back each other every step of the way.

American Express Technology is a critical Enterprise function, serving as the backbone of all we do: from providing the underlying infrastructure of the company to building core products and services we deliver to our customers. The Technology organization has dramatically changed over the last few years, moving from a waterfall operation to an agile model of working. As Technology evolves its operating model, Finance will also adapt accordingly to best position the organization in supporting American Express businesses. The newly formed Technology Finance Investment Optimization & Analytics team was established to create enterprise value through data-driven insights and analytics of Technology investments, enabling effective trade-offs, business decisions, and strategic growth.
This newly created SFA role will be part of the team focusing on the Strategic Decision Support for Technology Investments, specifically covering the Digital, Data & AI/ML Unit.
Key responsibilities include:
- Leverage newly built tools and capabilities to track investment spend for specific AXP Units, and articulate both the business and technology story to various partners.
- Provide financial decision support (budgeting/forecasting, variance analysis and underlying cost drivers) for our Technology partners to ensure optimal achievement of expense targets
- Prepare and present key recommendations to Finance and Technology Leadership to drive decision making
- Provide thought leadership and drive the linkage of capacity management efforts with financial planning efforts, finding ways to improve processes and connectivity between teams
- The incumbent will need to work across a matrix of stakeholders – technology, finance, product teams, etc. to ensure proper change management and alignment for this new function.
- Perform ad hoc analytics as required
Qualifications & Requirements
Qualifications:
- Strong financial, analytical, and problem-solving skills
- Excellent communication skills: ability to distill financial data into clear and concise insights
- Advanced technical skills (Synthesizing large data sets thru aggregation and interpretation)
- Ability to prioritize and manage competing priorities effectively
- Self-starter with a high degree of intellectual curiosity
- Proficient in Microsoft suite; Oracle Smart View and IBM Cognos TM1 strongly preferred
- Relevant work experience strongly preferred
- Undergraduate Degree required

We back our colleagues with the support they need to thrive, professionally and personally. That’s why we have Amex Flex, our enterprise working model that provides greater flexibility to colleagues while ensuring we preserve the important aspects of our unique in-person culture. Depending on role and business needs, colleagues will either work onsite, in a hybrid model (combination of in-office and virtual days) or fully virtually.
