Looking for an awesome job here in Oregon?
As the web analytics job market continues to be very tight, it’s no wonder that companies are becoming more aggressive and generous as they look for talented folks to help them manage their measurement practice. The nice folks at SimplyHired currently have over 1,700 positions matching the phrase “web analytics” in their system, a dramatic increase from the thousand or so from earlier this year. While an increasing number of companies have been leveraging our premium web analytics job board here at Analytics Demystified, perhaps because we’re actually helping companies fill these positions, I wanted to call your attention to one particularly cool sounding job on the board right now located here in my home state of Oregon.
Altrec, an outdoor gear retailer headquartered in Redmond, Oregon, is looking for a Senior E-Commerce Business Analyst. While I am somewhat sheepish about helping promote Altrec given my relationship with the nice people at Backcountry.com (see Analytics Demystified and have a look at all of the screenshots) after talking to a representative from the company it sounds like a truly great opportunity for the right person.
Altrec is growing like crazy after 10 years in business, is profitable, and like many companies located in beautiful mountainous locations, places a premium on work/life balance and offers a flexible work schedule. They’ve recently created a new position in the company for someone to take the lead on their measurement projects and use of Coremetrics. This is a strategic position and will have both a high level of autonomy and great visibility from the management team since the hire will need to support all aspects of the company’s business.
Because the company is growing so quickly, Altrec is looking for someone who has demonstrated experience bringing a retail-centric web analytics program online. You don’t necessarily need to have Coremetrics experience, but passion for measurement and analysis, and a proven track record for building a measurement program is a must. And because this position is such a strategic hire, no formal salary range has been set and they company has said they are absolutely willing to pay for the right person. That and a very flexible relocation package to a gorgeous part of Oregon makes this a must-look position if you’re thinking about trading up in your career.
