  • Serve as the informed captain for acquisition marketing tests
  • Collaborate effectively with internal business units on test strategy, execution, results and next steps
  • Clearly communicate test plans, implementation strategy, results and recommendations to senior executives
  • Maintain a global process to govern and educate business teams around experimentation and testing
  • Present data and metrics fluently and with candor to internal stakeholders and engage them in discussion
  • Switch gears quickly between different tests and analyses spanning across different stakeholder groups
  • Build out and oversee a small paid media testing team

Basic Qualifications:

  • 8 years’ experience in marketing or analytical roles and 3 year of management experience.

  • Experience with conversion lift/incrementality testing preferred
  • Familiarity with digital marketing platforms (Facebook, DV360, etc.)
  • Fluent in statistical concepts (ie. sample size, randomization, generalization, confidence and significance levels)
  • Strong organizational skills and ability to manage multiple projects (or tests) at once across business units
  • Strong communication and presentation skills – written, visual, and verbal presentations. Able to present plans and debate with senior stakeholders.
  • Self-motivated, eagerness to learn, and accountable to work while taking directions well
  • A curiosity for data-driven marketing and OTT streaming services
