The Nitty Gritty
The backstory on the organization and why they need to hire you!
This is a big job right here! As you’d expect of a top-ten e-commerce player, marketing technology is woven tightly into the fabric of the entire organization, playing a mission-critical role in supporting the business. As the Senior Director, Marketing Technology Systems, you’ll lead the innovation process for the marketing technology stack and occupy the technical seat at the table in setting marketing strategy and then executing it successfully.
To get it all done, you’ll build, lead, and mentor a team of thirty-plus directors, managers, solutions architects, systems and business analysts. You’ll be in charge of budgeting and resource planning for all areas of marketing technology. You’ll partner and collaborate effectively with the other key functional teams: product management, process, technology, infrastructure, operations and revenue.
How you’ll know if you’re a fit…
You are a technical powerhouse with amazing leadership and communication skills. You’ve learned and then managed marketing technology, high-volume enterprise reporting and analytics systems, interactive tactic management, and e-commerce over the past 12+ years. At least half of that time, you’ve held enterprise-scale management roles in large matrixed organizations. And you’ve never been a mere caretaker: instead, you’ve made a name as an innovator and modernizer who’s always abreast of the newest developments in your field.
Your technical expertise is broad and deep, evolved through meaningful roles in one or more high-volume e-commerce companies. You’ve worked with big-data analytics like Hadoop, Tableau, or H2O AI, and well as standard analytics platforms such as Adobe, Google, MarketShare, and the like. You’re well versed in search and affiliate marketing (Kenshoo, Rakuten, Google), partner integration (feeds and tags), and site personalization tools. And of course, you’re a world-class expert in enterprise-strength marketing platforms such as SAS Marketing Automation, Oracle Responsys, Localytics, mGage, or SHQ.
The Inside Skinny
Why you should quit your job right now and join this organization!
The fact is, you just plain love this stuff. You’re a passionate leader and evangelist who’s dreaming of building the finest mar-tech architecture out there and making it hum!
