About this Job:
Disrupting the marketplace more than 25 years ago, CarMax became the largest used car retailer in the US. However, our goals as a company aren’t just to be the best in the industry but a leading retailer across all industries. To achieve this goal, CarMax has spent the last several years investing heavily in modernizing our digital and analytical infrastructure to support our customer-centric experience. Whether that be through building machine learning vehicle recommendation models in Python, or constructing Tableau visualizations to influence strategic decision making, CarMax is committed to equipping our analysts with industry-best tools and techniques to enable our continued success.
As a Business Analyst, you’ll play a key part in driving this success for the future.

They work closely with leadership in field execution, technology, marketing, and other business areas, to inform our strategy and execution. They help CarMax create powerful, compelling narratives and influence corporate decision-making at the most senior levels.
