Objectives of this Role
The Expense Management and Strategic Sourcing team are responsible for effectively managing Nasdaq’s external spend, while continuously seeking areas of opportunity to create cost efficiencies throughout the firm. In addition, this team’s mission is to offer comprehensive spending transparency through innovative analytics.

Ideal candidates will possess a strong interest in business analysis and strategic thinking.
