Reed Business Interactive is looking for a web analytics project manager
I had a chance to catch up with my friend Judah Phillips at Reed Business Interactive last week to learn more about the Web Analytics Systems Manager position he’s advertising for on my premium job board. While his HR folks determined that “Systems Manager” was the best title for the position, after talking to Judah I think what Reed really needs is a talented project manager with enough familiarity with web analytics to help Judah take their recent investment in Unica’s web analytics product to a very large group of end-users.
Judah is a very bright guy and among the most vocal members of the Web Analytics Forum at Yahoo! groups. I have no doubt that anyone filling this position will heavily benefit from working directly with Judah which is a big plus considering that Reed is looking for someone still developing their web analytics skill set.
Reed has an analytics model that is essentially hub-and-spoke but more weighted towards the spokes (business units). It sounds like their is web analytics expertise in the BUs but Judah described the typical cacophony of vendors you find in any company of size (e.g., some WebTrends, some WebSideStory, some Google Analytics, etc.) This position will be responsible for helping the BUs come up to speed on Unica.
The good news is that Judah (and by proxy, Reed) really understand value proposition behind web analytics and sound prepared to do the necessary work, hopefully lessening some of the political stuff that is usually associated with a web analytics project management position.
If you have excellent project management skills with deep experience in technology deployments and either 1 to 3 years of experience with web analytics or at least a sincere interest in the subject, I would encourage you to contact Judah. I can put you in touch directly or you can go through the job post here on my site.
