Great sounding job working for Craig Danuloff at Commerce360
Craig Danuloff, the President and founder of Commerce360 and a damn fine blogger in his own right, recently posted a web analyst position on my premium job board. As I try to do with everyone who posts to my job board, I reached out to Craig and we had a great conversation about this position. Some of the highlights from our conversation were the following:
- Commerce360 has a slightly different business model than many other agencies in which they have tremendous license to use analytics to really optimize their customers online marketing efforts. Craig described a situation that was less about “hours worked” and more about “results produced” which is, of course, what web analytics is all about, right?
- Commerce360 is managing the entire analytics process for their customers (short of vendor selection) which, according to Craig, effectively removes the occasionally painful process of selling the need to make changes. If you’ve ever been in the position of failing to be able to sell changes you know (based on real data) will help the site, you’ll surely appreciate how nice of a job benefit this is.
- Craig’s organization is growing like crazy. He has two full-time analysts now, is close to a third, and that doesn’t include the position I’m describing here. So in addition to being about to work with an industry thought leader like Craig, you’ll have other talented folks to learn from (or teach, depending on your level of experience)
- Regarding level of experience, Craig did say he would be happy to talk to someone more junior who was motivated to learn. I think this will give him a substantial advantage in a tight market — the ability to internally train a bright person who doesn’t have years of experience, as opposed to definitely needing someone with multiple years of experience.
- The last bullet is not to say Commerce360 isn’t looking for a seriously experienced web analyst. Craig asked me to not discuss compensation in the blog other than to say it is definitely competitive (my assessment, based on other recent hires in PA/NY/NJ that I personally know about) but he did say he’s able to pay appropriately for top talent. Stock, performance bonuses, and other upside are available.
This is a rare opportunity given that Craig is clearly someone who gets web analytics, the tools, processes, and how to convert these technologies into real customer value. Given that Craig’s blog currently holds the #11 slot (Spinal Tap nod there) in Avinash Kaushik’s top ten list of web analytics bloggers, you’d be working for and with one of the best and the brightest.
