analyst

COMPANY OVERVIEW

We are a young and independent marketing technology agency. Our mission is to combine technology and creativity to solve brands’ problems. We unite data, technology, creative content and media. Our clients include Spotify, ASOS, Just Eat and Pret to name a few. Since being founded in 2014, Byte has grown to over 70 brilliant and talented people in London and New York.

Our core services are:

  • Biddable social media planning and buying
  • Data analytics and insight
  • Social CRM design and implementation
  • Building marketing technology products
  • Influencer relationship management
  • Digital and social media strategy
  • Marketing technology consultancy
  • Digital channel optimisation
  • Creative ideas development
  • Digital content production

JOB PURPOSE

We don’t believe in siloed teams – content, technology, media and data overlap in all roles at Byte. We need someone to deliver analytics and paid media strategy/insight across all the work we deliver. This person will develop measurement frameworks and paid media strategies and oversee day-to-day analytics. They will bring data and insight to everything we do, ensuring we deliver the most effective campaigns – we want a mixture of an analyst and a paid media strategist.

Marketing and technology is converging at a rapid rate. Technology can now deliver the marketing promise of personalised communications at scale. However, technology is useless without ideas that capture consumers’ imaginations. We need someone who understands our client’s customers, who can put themselves in their shoes to create strategies and ideas that exceed expectations, who understands that brands are competing for consumers’ attention and have at best a couple of seconds to inspire some sort of interaction. We need people who can come up with big ideas as well as lots of little ones that are framed in a solid strategy grounded in insight.
