What will you be doing?

  • Analyze ongoing performance and come up with strategic recommendations based on a thorough data analysis.
  • Run A/B, Lift, and other types of testing programs.
  • Lead on creating compelling customer journeys and delivering an exceptional user experience on the website/in app.

What you will need to succeed?
