Company Description Motiva Enterprises is on a journey to become the safest and most profitable downstream company in the U.S. More than 3,700 dedicated professionals comprise the 50/50 joint venture between Shell and Saudi Aramco. Motiva has refineries located in Convent and Norco, Louisiana and Port Arthur, Texas with combined capacity of over 1 million barrels per day, making it the third largest manufacturing company in the Americas. A strategic distribution network of product terminals across the eastern and southern parts of the U.S. delivers quality gasoline and petroleum products to nearly 8,300 Shell-branded retail outlets. Be part of a dynamic and nimble organization where your talents are rewarded and your efforts make a difference in the company’s performance.

As announced on March 16, Motiva’s owners have signed a non-binding Letter of Intent to separate the assets and businesses of the joint venture. Saudi Aramco publicly stated at that time Motiva will be set up as an autonomous integrated downstream affiliate. As such, Motiva remains committed to managing its current business and preparing the organization to function as a stand-alone entity. Motiva is seeking talented professionals who want to make a difference in the company and the industry.

Job Description Motiva Enterprises LLC is a 50/50 private joint venture between affiliates of Saudi Aramco and Shell (“the Members”).  Motiva currently owns three refineries (Norco, Convent, and Port Arthur) with a combined refining capacity of over 1 million barrels per day. The company’s distribution network of 34 refined product terminals provides for a competitive advantage. Motiva also refines and markets gasoline and other petroleum products under the Shell brand across 26 states in the eastern and southern parts of the US, providing product to over 8,200 Shell-branded retail outlets. Motiva also trades physical products and, for hedging purposes, related financial derivatives. Motiva is an investment grade rated entity with strong financial and operating performance.

In March 2016, the Members signed a non-binding letter of intent (“LOI”) to divide the assets of Motiva Enterprises LLC – enabling both companies to pursue independent Downstream growth strategies. Motiva is undergoing an exciting transformation journey as a result of the LOI and is pursuing a number of strategic projects which require it to insource certain functions and activities which were previously performed by Shell.  The integration of Motiva’s business process, data management, analytics, and information governance capabilities is integral in the growth and optimization of Motiva’s business operations.

Motiva’s Enterprise Business Services function will initially be comprised of a staff of four, a Manager, a Business Architect, an Enterprise Data Lead, an Enterprise Analytics Lead and an Analyst, all of which are new positions to Motiva and will sit in Houston.   The successful incumbent for the Manager role will be responsible for continuing the process of developing and optimizing Motiva’s core business processes, providing business guidance and oversight of the delivery of Enterprise Data Management, Content Management, and Enterprise Analytics business requirements.
