  • Creative Briefing and meet with the client’s team on a weekly basis to review new briefs, and collect input on new concept designs and the status of the creative roadmap.

  • Demonstrated experience running controlled experiments (A/B Testing, Multivariate Testing), including statistical concepts (hypothesis testing, segmentation, randomization, bias/validity).

  • Can effectively explain the differences between attribution versus incrementality. Further, you should be able to explain each use case to a client and how it applies to testing.
