Your Opportunity

The Deposits and Margin Strategy and Analytics team is responsible for product analytics related to deposits and margin, for Charles Schwab Bank and for the brokerage Charles Schwab and Co. Inc.

The team consists of people with data science and econometrics/statistical backgrounds as well as some with more traditional strategy or consulting/finance backgrounds.

We are seeking a Director of Cash Strategy and Analytics. This role is responsible for driving strategy, analytics, forecasting, pricing and other work related primarily to Schwab’s sweep deposits (uninvested cash in brokerage accounts) which are the largest category of deposits at Schwab.

*Subject to change as Schwab is continually evaluating the current environment in order to best care for the safety and well-being of our employees.
