A successful track record of evaluating and on-boarding digital measurement solutions and products from beginning to end
Experience working with Product teams to bring new products and capabilities to life at a technology company
Strong background in quantitative advertising research, with solid skills in designing and analyzing complex research studies
Extensive experience in data analysis and storytelling, going beyond the “what” to tell the “why” within research results
Hands-on and inherently curious, and go above and beyond if you find data taking you in interesting and/or unexpected places
Extensive experience with vendors in these three measurement areas:
-Reach: viewability, on-target percentage, etc.
-Resonance: brand awareness, consideration, intent, etc.
-Reaction: attribution, sales lift, online-to-online, foot traffic, econometric modeling, etc.

An extremely strong knowledge of the digital marketing ecosystem, measurement capability landscape, and how it all works from a technical perspective
Broad knowledge of measurement solutions, spanning CPG, Auto, Entertainment, Retail, Tech, etc.
A positive and collaborative team player who values building strong relationships with colleagues and stakeholders
Global research experience is a plus
Skills in big data tools like R, Python or SQL are a plus
We are proud to foster a workplace free from discrimination.
