CondeNet is willing to train you to learn Visual Sciences
If you live in Manhattan and have been thinking about getting your hands on Visual Sciences technology, the nice folks at the CondeNet division of Conde Nast Publications would love to talk to you. The Web Analytics Systems Analyst position will report to the Senior Manager of Internet Applications and CondeNet is looking for a jack-of-all-trades.
While I usually help companies find good old-fashioned analysts and analyst managers, this position is definitely more technical. Conde needs someone with web analytics knowledge but also experience in shell scripting, Ruby on Rails, and export and integration processes. Part of what CondeNet is doing is exporting data from the Visual Sciences environment into a customized internal data portal, and this position will have an opportunity to build out that environment.
In addition to the technical piece, there will be an opportunity to do analysis directly with the marketing organization. When I talked to the folks at CondeNet they had an excellent example of how this position helped solve a critical business problem regarding a significant change in one of the companies tracked key performance indicators.
The HR person I talked to said they were definitely open to talking to people without direct Visual Sciences experience, and they were happy to send the successful new hire to relevant training courses offered by Visual Sciences. This alone is huge for anyone wishing they had access to the kind of technology I’ve talked about from time to time in this blog. Trust me: It’s not everyday someone says they’ll pay you to learn how to manage Visual Site, much less pay you handsomely to do so.
Did I say “pay handsomely”?! Yep, the salary is VERY COMPETITIVE and they report a strongly held belief in work-life balance that is sometimes missing out there.
