About the Job:

The On-Demand Services team is Optimizely's new secret weapon.  As a team, we provide expertise to help our Enterprise clients fully leverage the Optimizely platform as well as strategic guidance and support to help our clients test in intelligent and insightful ways - especially those clients who may be strapped for internal resources.

  • Work closely with our team of Designers, Developers, and QA Engineers to execute the experiments for your clients.  You’ll be the one authoring requirements for each step of the process.

  • Run weekly or bi-weekly calls with your clients where you’ll discuss the results of recently completed tests, the status of experiments in the design/dev cycle, and strategize on future experiments



  • Strong requirements: writing, communication skills, project management, and technical aptitude required
