Are you a metrics nut / data geek?
Entrepreneurial and drive for results?
Comfortable presenting to all levels whether data geeks from other teams across the league to marketing executives, or to the media?
Do you secretly get excited when someone mentions vlookup or pivot tables in Excel?
Help us create the likes of which internet marketing has never seen by showing off your analysis skills!
We need your help to build models to drive merchandise sales, identify optimizations for our website, grow our raving fan base, and set the standard for digital excellence for each of our prolific clients.
If you don’t have a statistics background, have used all the latest whiz-bang tools, a decade of experience doing analysis, or a career in internet marketing, that’s okay.
Certainly, being proficient in Site Catalyst, Google AdWords, Facebook Insights, marketing automation tools, SAS, MySQL, and Excel would be a big plus, but we’re looking for someone with raw critical thinking skills and initiative – someone we can train up.
This is not a pure number crunching position. Yet you must be equally proficient whether discussing marketing strategy or analyzing complex data sets.
If accepted, you will report to the VP of Optimization, Alex Houg, for BlitzMetrics. You will help us grow this new function, first by rolling up your sleeves to build out the models, and later to manage a team.
Extend our optimization process into a variety of different verticals, including media and entertainment companies.

Make recommendations backed by the data on how we can improve engagement, what is driving the most traffic to our site, the impact of factors external to marketing (winning a case, immigration news), or other channel strategies based on what we have learned here.
Tie in any other data set you choose. Pull from other APIs if you are so inclined. Create meaningful charts and graphs. Be creative in showing us how you think, not that you are a report monkey.
