Austin, TX
January 27, 2015

Who you are: You consider yourself the source of insight for marketing and business problems.  Know exactly how to make the simple data request come alive and deliver the right information to the team so we make the best decisions?  Understand numbers, statistics, model testing like the back of your hand?  Can you get at the numbers no matter where they live (SQL, Excel, under the couch cushions) and then put them together to tell a story mere mortals can consume?  We just might have a position for you!

Spiceworks is looking for a marketing analytics manager who can roll up their sleeves and start from the raw data and build from there.  Someone who isn’t afraid of learning what the thousands of tables of data mean and who can make sense of the terabytes of data we have to analyze.  This is no simple marketing analytics role where you have a few million web visitors, think tens of millions, think about building funnels that include external data sources, application data, community data, and website data. But most importantly, you can tie the data to the problems that need to be solved and communicate the data to the team.  If this sounds like the challenge you were made for then read on.


Who we are: Spiceworks, an 8 year-old Austin-based startup, is transforming how tech products (hardware, software and IT services) are marketed and sold to over 5 million SMB IT pros around the world. Over 2,000 new users join Spiceworks for free each day. How do we keep IT free? Over 3,000 tech brands (including Microsoft, Dell, HP and Rackspace) advertise in Spiceworks to reach these IT pros. Since SMB IT pros have historically been a tough market to reach, vendors love the unique ways Spiceworks helps them reach this elusive market… so much so that Forbes touted us “the future of media”!
