  • You embrace a bottom-up culture, are not afraid to share your ideas, and will find ways to impact the team positively through innovation.
  • You have some front-end web development (HTML, CSS, JavaScript) and web analytics (e.g. Google Analytics) experience, or have earned a 4-year degree in a technical field like computer science, programming, statistics or mathematics.
  • You are a self-starter and are continuously looking for ways to do things better.
  • You have a thirst for knowledge, often challenging yourself to learn new web technologies.
  • You enjoy working on technical side projects to validate what you’ve learned.
  • You have good time management skills and can balance numerous projects at once.

What you’ll learn:

  • You’ll become a certified Optimizely expert, and will be able to demonstrate the value of website optimization.
  • You will be mentored to put your skills to use and create amazing experiences for customers.
  • Being surrounded by a world-class team, you will brainstorm, think big, innovate, take risks, and make data-driven decisions.
