Job Description:

We are seeking to identify a Marketing Analyst Consultant for our client's Analytics team. This nimble team is tasked with supporting the Marketing Department to enhance their work and to strengthen their impact. As part of this process, our client will be bringing more SAS-based reporting and analytics capabilities in-house which means that the team is developing scripts, procedures, and processes, often from scratch. 

The Marketing Analyst Consultant will be an integral part of this process and will have excellent opportunities for growth and development. This also means that the candidate we are looking for is a natural self-starter and must be very comfortable with dealing with ambiguity.  Background will include strong understanding of business needs, demonstrated success in analyzing data for meaningful insights and strong relationship building skills.

By bringing more Analytics and Project Management capabilities in-house, they are creating the environment for deeper insights, root cause analysis and continuous improvement through the Marketing Department. This includes collaborating with key internal and external stakeholders and thought leaders within Analytics as well as supporting the management of annual strategic marketing initiatives.

Client Description:

Our national insurance industry client practices what it preaches, and has a strong health and wellness focus as part of their company culture. As a part of their organization, even as a freelancer, you can expect to be included in that culture!

What else can you expect from this organization?

  • As a congenial and collaborative culture, they’ll welcome you as an equal contributor, and value your opinion when it comes to creative and marketing project creation and delivery.

  • They’re fully committed to an Agile environment, adopting and utilizing standard Agile practices daily.

  • These folks are committed to getting it right, and as such, are quite focused on metrics and ROI. “Measure twice, cut once” is a common phrase that could possibly apply to their project teams. That’s why they value candidates with previous knowledge and experience in designing & managing to drive metrics, and have a keen eye for those with insurance industry experience.

    • Prior knowledge of and familiarity with industry acronyms is a plus.

  • This is very much a matrixed organization, so bring your A-game and communication skills! You’ll be networking with any number of stakeholders related to your creative and marketing projects.

  • Being a larger corporation, the meeting schedule is sometimes heavy. With a strong ability to stay organized and focused on your deliverable, you’ll thrive here!

Certain locations benefit from on-site fitness center facilities, Starbucks, and free parking. Our advice? Bring your walking shoes! Your day has a built in mini-workout. Parking in the CT facility tends to be a bit of a walk from the (very large!) main building, but that will make your fitness tracker happy!
