Jobs at Yahoo, Digitas, Apple and more in our job board!
When I started Analytics Demystified, Inc. I did one really smart thing — I asked my wife Amity to run operations for the company. One of her areas of focus is our job board, and I have to say she has been doing an amazing job at finding great companies to advertise on the site lately. There are currently nearly two dozen jobs listed, including multiple openings at Digitas and Yahoo, so if you’re currently in the market for a new job I hope you’ll see something you’re interested in.
I wanted to briefly tough on a few of the positions listed on the board, just to call them out.
First, there are a handful of great looking positions requiring web analytics experience at Yahoo! Inc. in Lara Long’s group, focusing on product management for Yahoo’s internal data collection and reporting tools. This group supports the media business and is responsible for answering all kinds of interesting questions about Yahoo’s global audience. Lara told me that they have data coming in from nearly 50 sources — qualitative, audience, testing data, etc. — and this data needs to be packaged properly and presented to the business.
If you’re an experienced product manager and have background or experience using web analytics tools, you should definitely check out these jobs! You can learn more about each of them from the following links:
- Analytics Portal Product Manager
- Sr. Product Manager, Yahoo! Media Reporting
- Sr. Product Manager, Yahoo! Business Intelligence Digital Media
- Senior Product Manager – Data Warehouse/Mart
I’ve talked to Lara a handful of times and she seems like a great person — she has great energy and a real passion for her work (and the web analytics industry in general!)
Second, there are a bunch of analyst and consultant positions open at Digitas in New York and one in Atlanta, GA. I know some of the folks at Digitas (Terry Cohen, Matt Jacobs, Greg Dowling) and have a great respect for the work they’re doing out there. I’m not sure how many of these positions would be working directly with Terry, Matt, or Greg but I you’d be stoked if that were the case. I’m honored that Digitas bought so many jobs on my site and I think it speaks volumes to their commitment to providing great analytics to their clients.
Given they have so many openings, the best place to look is at the job board itself!
Finally, the folks at the Apple Store are looking for a web analyst, someone to help them run their Omniture implementation. I’m a big fan of Apple lately — still loving my iPhone (but not so much AT&T’s EDGE network …) and so was excited to see this posting. I’ve heard great things about working for Apple so if you live near 1 Infinite Loop and are looking for a new gig, I definitely encourage you to check out this posting.
Thanks again to all the job board advertisers and to Amity for helping the board grow. If you have any questions about advertising on the job board I am happy to take them directly via email.
