The Role

Napkyn Analytics is one of the largest dedicated digital analytics consultancies in North America. We work with marketing, IT, and finance executives at some of the most prominent brands on the web to help them strategically implement digital analytics and report on digital performance against c-level business objectives.

This means informing the strategic direction of new programs and projects, leading the onboarding of new engagements, being the voice of the client among a dedicated account team, communicating with agency and technology partners and, all along the way, helping to minimize risk and maintain on-time and on-budget service delivery.

What makes you stand out is a strong working knowledge of digital analytics, what drives successful licensing engagements, written and verbal communication skills, project planning skills, and the ability to transition between strategic and tactical thinking.
