If you're comfortable with both technology and people, and if it gets your blood flowing to use data analysis to make an impact, then this position is right up your alley.

Our management team has previous experience building successful software products at companies like Salesforce, Akamai, HubSpot, Elance, BzzAgent, and Amazon.com.
