Note from manager:

We need someone to dig in and get the data. They have to be critical thinkers. They have to get their hands on data. They have to interpret data and change it into actionable information. We have to monitor projects. I need to be able to build tools to monitor project.

They might need to Oakland twice a month. Mileage reimbursed.

What I'm looking for someone with financial planning and analysis background. We do not want someone with variance analysis. Someone who has the ability to work in a gray area without all the obvious data available.
