  • Measure results against stated objectives, applying a variety of analysis tools to interpret data and identify key patterns and findings
  • Combine test results with other relevant data sources, both internal and external, to enhance the quality of the insights
  • Develop processes that enable the successful development of experiments
  • Provide support and troubleshooting to ensure cross-functional business partners are clear as to their roles and responsibilities throughout the test process
  • Deliver test results and insightful data to client management teams


  • 3+ years of experience focused on front-end web development
  • 1+ year of experience executing A/B and multivariate tests using industry tools such as Adobe Target, Google Optimize, Optimizely, etc. (Training for specific tools may be provided)
  • Strong command of essential web technologies, including XHTML, CSS, JavaScript, JS Libraries, AJAX, JSON, DOM scripting, unobtrusive JavaScript, XML/XSLT, and W3C DOM methods and properties
  • Basic understanding of conversion optimization principles as well as practices and web analytics solutions (Adobe Analytics, Google Analytics, etc.)
  • Understanding of tableless page layout and positioning, browser behavior and compatibility, and cross-browser issues and solutions
  • Ability to manipulate site content and functionality using client-side technologies
  • Some experience with SQL and databases
  • Strong desire to apply technical development skills to innovative marketing solutions and products that make real impact on client businesses
  • Willingness to learn new tools and technologies as needed
