About Redwood Materials

Redwood Materials was founded in 2017 to create a circular supply chain for electric vehicles and clean energy products, making them more sustainable and driving down the cost for batteries. We’re doing this by developing and deploying new technologies to increase the scope and scale of recycled and sustainable materials in the global battery supply chain.

Business Analyst

We are seeking a Business Analyst to join the team at Redwood Materials. You’ll be responsible for all things data within the Business Development (Sales & Sourcing) and Market Strategy team. You will map out & track partnerships within the electric vehicle supply chain. You’ll gain an understanding of the current and forecasted market size, supply & demand balance for key battery components and metals and identify gaps/opportunities or Redwood’s products and services.

Responsibilities will include:

  • You should be skilled at manipulating data with tools including Excel, SQL, enterprise and customer relationship management systems, market data sources, etc.
  • Develop business cases and justify them with an actual executable plan. Develop KPIs for the business and hold the org (and yourself) to them (think Excel, PowerBI).
  • The ability to be able to mine our internal systems & data (Oracle, etc.) and collect external data too (pricing, market demand, etc.). Developing a solid understanding of our industry (recycling and battery materials, both copper foil and cathode), our market (battery cell and EV OEMs) as well as technology trends is critical.
  • Leverage Business Intelligence software (ex: PowerBI, Tableau) to track inventory volumes, statuses, and values. Maintaining existing critical business dashboards, handle ad-hoc data requests, and track progress towards KPIs.

Desired Qualifications:

  • Battery, Battery Materials, Battery Metals (mining or recycled), or Commodities industry experience is helpful.
  • Results oriented: we’re in a hurry - a sense of pace and urgency is critical.
  • Our business is “dynamic,” meaning our market and we can change quickly. You’ll need to be comfortable in a startup environment. Think independent, motivated, self-starter.
  • Strong analytical skills are needed. You should be able to interpret data/analysis and intuitively identify/troubleshoot gaps in quantitative analysis. Distilling data into actionable recommendations is key.
  • You won’t have the entire organization reporting to you, but you’ll need to be able to influence them to accomplish your goals. An ability to foster and maintain relationships both internally and externally is essential.
  • A passion for sustainability and making the world a better place!
