  • The Analytics & Optimization Specialist is responsible for developing measurement plans, implementing necessary codes, and ensuring proper implementation across multiple clients and projects.
  • The Analytics & Optimization Specialist plans the aspects of marketing and optimization implementation with clients and internal TBG staff, including the necessary site modifications, content planning, workflows, rules, tracking, and other elements necessary for successful programs. 
    • The Specialist may help to maintain a knowledge base about the systems and to train internal staff at TBG in the systems. Occasionally, the role may participate in the review of new platforms. 
    • The Specialist may attend new business pitches if the project relates to aspects of the role. The Specialist will attend client meetings as applicable, if executing optimization work on a project, coordinating with the TBG project manager and digital strategy team.

The role is intensely collaborative with clients and internal staff, and primarily focused on the tactical aspect of these executions, although at times the role may interact with Strategy. The role may also work with technical roles at TBG to define necessary custom development to enhance "out-of-the-box" features. Although the role is not a project management position, it may include internal project management of the details of executions around Analytics and Optimization efforts.
