Data Storyteller/Analyst

About the role

Our Data Storyteller is part number-cruncher, part internal marketer and part ace correspondent from the testing trenches. He or she is someone who can take the raw data of testing — the stacks of numbers, the fractional wins and losses, the stream of daily choices — and turn it into a narrative that will excite the team. In our view storytelling doesn’t just mean boasting about successes. It can also mean sharing failures and other less-than-optimal outcomes. The point is not just to highlight wins: it’s to reinforce a culture of growth, to generate interest in experimentation and explain why testing is so good for the company — and crucial for effective campaigns.
