The role

Our Digital Analytics team is rapidly expanding – we’re on the lookout for intelligent, data-loving and logical candidates to join us now or in Summer 2018!

Our team structure allows you to get hands on experience with different analytics, ad tech and marketing tools and drive insight and performance for our clients. On any given day, you could be working with a global ecommerce brand in the morning and a local services consultancy in the afternoon.

Our teams use a multitude of digital tools on behalf of businesses to help them understand the performance of their digital marketing, websites, apps, and anything else digitally connected. Digital data can be used simply to measure what’s happening, but its true value arises when the data is used to gain insights in to how the business ticks and to inform improvements to processes and service offerings.

Life as a Graduate Marketing Technical Analyst

You will get your hands dirty from day one as you begin our fantastic training programme. In hardly any time, you’ll be an expert in our field and your role will cover the full spectrum of analytical and technical solutions work:

  • Devising tracking and reporting frameworks that provide data to a wide range of digital platforms
  • Analytics services - Google Analytics (GA), Adobe Analytics and GA for Firebase
  • Ad tech - Google’s DoubleClick platform
  • Data Management Platforms (DMPs) - Salesforce DMP, Adobe Audience Manager etc.
  • Implementation of these plans using tag management tools such as Google Tag Manager (GTM), Tealium and Adobe Launch.
  • Liaison with our client’s developers to implement on-site data layers that support our data collection activities.
  • Working with APIs to integrate datasets and build reporting and visualisation platforms.
  • Support of A/B testing build work using customer experience optimization tools such as Optimizely, Optimize and VWO.
  • Hands on analysis of our client’s data to surface actionable insight regarding their website and marketing performance.
  • Building and maintaining client relationships through day to day account management, both written and via face to face contact.
  • Developing scripts and plugins to solve tracking issues.
  • Improving our techniques, processes and quality assurance.
  • Working autonomously and as a team, with time management a critical attribute.

This means that a typical day will have a good balance of coding, writing, talking, data and learning new stuff.

What we are looking for in you

We’re looking for a:

  • University Bachelor’s degree or higher
  • Friendly and engaging personality
  • Excellent presentation and communication skills
  • The ability to work autonomously as well as part of a team
  • Logical thinker
  • Good attention to detail
We also really need to see some background or experience in the below:
  • JavaScript (jQuery), HTML & CSS, SQL, Python, Java, Swift or any other programming languages
  • Developing websites or applications (even if it’s just your hobby!)

Essentially, we’re looking for intelligent, data-loving, coding obsessed, logical candidates!

GA is our primary tool of choice so knowledge of the platform is great, but not required (you can always do research before the interview!).

At the point of application, the candidate must have the legal right to work in the UK as we are unable to sponsor visas at this time.
