Western Digital®

The next big thing in data is you!

The Strategic Initiatives team reports directly into the EVP of the Flash business at Western Digital. We drive the initiatives which are top agenda items of the team that leads this business. Resolving these issues involves financial, data-science, management, and technical know-how.  This is not your typical strategy team. We dive in, hands on, and focus on execution. Strategic insight is imperative, but results are what we are after.


As a Sr. Manager in this team you will be responsible for autonomously running projects, presenting results to CxO/EVP level stakeholders, and personally driving results out of teams comprised of people who are several levels more senior than you. High performance in this role will position you for leadership opportunities in the wider Western Digital organization.

If you want to work at the absolute leading edge in technology innovation, then Western Digital is the place to work. Roughly half of the word’s data runs on our products. We operate at the boundaries of what is scientifically achievable. At unimaginably small scale, using the most advanced technologies in the world. Almost any leading technology product in the world is powered by our products, whether it be mobile, IOT, internet, or wearable. We jointly innovate with companies in these areas to bring you the future.


  • Highly preferred – Finance or Corporate Strategy experience in a semiconductor company
  • MBA degree + 3-5 years post-MBA experience
    • OR bachelor degree 10+ years in a relevant function
  • Preferred – undergrad in a technical field (e.g. Engineering, Computer Science, Math, Physics, or another hard science)
  • Preferred – prior work experience with a top consulting or investment banking firm
  • Outstanding performance record


  • Very comfortable working in ambiguity
  • Flexible, self-motivated, and focused on getting things done
  • Demonstrated ability and experience in effectively interacting with executives
  • Very strong quantitative and analytical skills
  • Experience working through change and solving complex problems
