The Nitty Gritty
The backstory on the organization and why they need to hire you!
This optimization engine and intelligence platform for brands and retailers needs a VP of E-commerce with the expertise and AI ingenuity to provide clients with the pricing and inventory tools to position themselves as lead sellers, as well as the performance media offerings to draw traffic to their stores.
Deftly managing a cross-functional team of account, campaign, and customer success stakeholders, you’ll analyze E-commerce storefront KPIs to improve customer ROI. From go-to-market strategy to performance media campaign experience, you’ll guide clients through an end-to-end experience that improves their sales funnel (as well as your own) — all while educating your internal team to best practices.
What success looks like in your first year…
- Stride right into existing managed services offerings, providing leadership on market optimization and paid media initiatives
- Improve an existing analytics practice to demonstrate ROI to clients
- Contribute to solutions consulting when pitching to new clients
How you’ll know if you’re a fit…
You’ve got big-time bookings with Top 10 E-commerce marketplaces, where you’ve racked successes in paid search and SEO. Your data-driven strategies focused on building stores rather than just optimizing websites, and you’ve stuck around several years to ensure they succeeded.
You know E-commerce inside and out (along with performance analytics, especially Google Analytics), and you’ve dramatically expanded the capabilities of the teams you’ve led. Whether that’s at the marketplace, the brand, or even an agency doesn’t matter. What does count is your people skills, both for inspiring those who report to you, and in making your booth at trade shows a can’t-miss stop.

- Share an example of how you used cross-channel performance marketing to grow an E-commerce business. What were the results of your efforts?
- How have you been able to grow and mentor a team?
