Media Analytics Manager

  • 1 University Avenue, Toronto, ON, M5J 2P1, Toronto, Canada
  • Full-time

Company Description

Understanding data is about understanding people. And that is not easy. People are complicated and life gets messy. We think a lot of things; feel a lot of things; and do a lot of things. Just using one analytical tool or capability to understand all that - like most other agencies would - simply doesn't give the answers we need. To really get a true picture, we need to understand what people say about themselves (declared behavior); what they actually do (measured behavior); and, how they share that (social behavior). Merkle Canada does this and we love what we do.
