About the Role
We are on the hunt for a talented senior analyst to help scale growth across our portfolio of clients. This is a hands-on-keyboard role for an ambitious, quantitatively-minded individual looking to grow their media buying expertise and capabilities. Our senior analysts operate at the tip of the spear on client engagements: you will own day to day execution across a portfolio of channels and work collaboratively to drive performance through analysis, research, and experimentation. You will report into one of our Media Leads and learn from a team of experienced practitioners across marketing, engineering, and design. You will be expected to learn rapidly, deliver meaningful value, and contribute to a culture of operational excellence.
Why is this a great opportunity?
This is a rare opportunity to work at the intersection of technology, commerce, and advertising with a senior team that has generated billions in revenue for innovative startups and Fortune 100/500 companies. You will develop expertise across the full ecosystem of performance advertising and, most importantly, learn how to scale products in the most competitive and high-growth sectors of the internet economy. As a young startup, Headlight also offers the opportunity for fast, merit-driven progress. You will not be burdened with bureaucracy or corporate politics, only the expectation of teamwork and impact.
Who are we looking for?
This role is a great fit for early career media buyers with around 1 or 2 years of experience. The ideal candidate over-indexes on analytical rigor, precision, and agility. You must be able to extract actionable insights from raw data and communicate them effectively to a diverse set of stakeholders. For this role we require previous experience with paid search marketing, but any additional experience in other media channels, performance marketing, quantitative business analysis and the tools that support it is a plus. You should be able to jump right in, helping to manage accounts and communicate back out to senior team members and/or clients. While we offer training and mentorship from a very experienced team, you should also be a self-starter able to learn autonomously without fear of raising your hand with questions. As a fully remote company spanning multiple time zones and countries, we rely on a culture of direct accountability and trust and look for teammates that will operate effectively in that environment.
