What You’ll Do


Creating a culture of data-driven decisions will be at the heart of everything you do. That means helping everyone in the business to ask better questions, so we can find better answers. A successful Mars Business Translator needs to fully understand Mars and the work we do. Then armed with this knowledge and their relationship with the Mars Decision Science/AI teams, together they’ll unearth key insights and implement those insights to drive the Mars P&L.


Working in a small multidisciplinary team alongside the Finance, Global Analytics, Data and AI teams, you’ll partner with Product Owners to solve problems that real users face using advanced digital techniques. That also means closely collaborating with users from our segments and markets around the world to find the right problems to solve. Building on that, you’ll use this direct user exposure to invent true ‘firsts’ - new and emerging approaches that Mars, and maybe even the industry, haven’t seen before.

  • The ability to tell a story using data from primary, secondary and third-party data sources
