  • 5+ years of experience in digital analytics with experience working with a direct response or fundraising campaigns, with an emphasis on acquisition and optimisation of results and ROI.
  • A curious, organised, methodical, and proactive mind. You like to use substantiated data to both identify and solve problems, rather than trust your gut alone. You can explain your work clearly both in person and in writing with strong communication skills. Data analysis skills in Excel or Google Sheets are essential.
  • Knowledge of paid media analytics, with experience of working with data from paid search, paid social and programmatic display. Experience with dashboarding and reporting using solutions such as Google Data Studio, Google Cloud / Google Big Query, and other connectors and API solutions (Supermetrics, Stitch, DBT, Fracture, etc) are a significant advantage.
  • Desirable but not essential - experience with web analytics suites such as Google Analytics. Experience with A/B testing solutions such as Google Optimize, Optimizely, or equivalent.
  • Experience with statistical methods (significance testing, regression analysis, etc) and/or any programming languages (such as SQL, R or Python) is desirable. If you’re keen but haven’t had the opportunity, we will be happy to train you!

At Blue State, diversity is a necessity, not a nice-to-have. We encourage those from underrepresented communities — women, people of color, LGBTQIA+, immigrants, those with disabilities and people at all the intersections in between — to apply. Even if you don’t think your current skill set checks every box below, but this role seems to align with your strengths, we want to hear from you.

Blue State is committed to creating an inclusive and accessible application and interview process. If you would like to request a reasonable accommodation for a disability, please contact us at [email protected] with the subject line: Accommodation Request to get started.
