Who You Are:

With each of these pieces, your affinity for data and analytics will play an integral role in devising metrics that measure success relative to our key business goals.

This opportunity is unique as it requires someone to lead and implement initiatives that have massive impacts on growth, engagement, conversion, and internal operations while being part of a small, growing team.

  • Design and deploy a variety of A/B tests to optimize digital product features
  • Set measurable objectives, review results and optimize performance through rapid, data-driven iteration

What You'll Bring

  • Experience with A/B testing & direct user feedback (user testing, focus groups, etc.)
  • Strong analytical skills with the ability to make data-driven decisions
  • BA/BS in a quantitative field (e.g. computer science, physics, mathematics, etc.) or equivalent in practical experience preferred

Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging at Flockjay

We believe diversity is strength & difference is a teacher. We know we'll do our best and most impactful work when we feel we're represented and we belong. We strive to provide the support required to create a safe, positive environment.

We're proud to actively recruit and hire talented people from a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

We believe organizations must build diversity, inclusion, and belonging into their DNA. Those that do so will build better products, provide better services, and be positive forces in the world.
