THE COMPANY: BRAINJOLT (brainjoltmedia.com)
What makes us different…
We run one of the top 20 mobile websites in the USA, according to Quantcast (22words.com)
Fully remote, we measure what matters and prioritize RESULTS over where you work
#beatyesterday is our mantra… we optimize incrementally so we’re always beating our own records
We’re scrappy doers who love getting into the weeds to solve problems…
Titles don’t matter. Results and drive do. Everyone is a chief problem solver at Brainjolt
Bureaucracy is bulls&*t. We don’t like red tape. We prefer to work biased to action, led by data
We don’t take ourselves too seriously, but we enjoy playing the game and being on the journey
THE OPPORTUNITY: MARKETING ANALYST
At the heart of it, we need someone who’s a numbers monster to analyze pricing and bidding strategies to help develop, grow and support Brainjolt’s Social Media strategy. As the Marketing Analyst, you will provide insights related to ad revenue KPIs and discover ways to automate the revenue reporting and data analysis processes. We’re keen to partner with someone who has Excel/modeling skills, is willing to go GOOGLE (Google Data Studio FTW), and possibly has worked at a trading desk or in fin-tech in the past (kinda a weird ask, we know, but it will make sense if you join the team)!
Measure everything we do socially with data.
Grow our audiences broadly + widely across the interwebs leveraging insights from the data you are seeing.
Create engaging reports to track progress and present data.
Share what you’re seeing with data, compelling reports, and clever hacks so the whole Brainjolt team can learn from what you’re doing and grow accordingly.
Stay absolutely up-to-date on Facebook (and other) algorithm updates and emerging trends in order to optimize for subject matter, frequency, and timing of posts.
Understand our competitors and how they’re using social media. Imitate as necessary. Innovate beyond them. And drive new initiatives forward.
Understand best practices and evangelize them. But never turn up your nose at clever tricks as you strategize new ways to grow social media followings and increase engagement.
Love social media. Don’t just be the team’s social media expert (which obviously you must be)...be the social media evangelist, too.
Bring Brainjolt to life on all relevant, non-Facebook social media platforms.
Measure the sourcing, packaging, and spreading of viral content across the internet using a data-driven approach.

Experience at a digital agency, publisher, eCommerce/SaaS company preferred
Solid knowledge of SEO, keyword research and Google Analytics
Knowledge of online marketing channels
Strong, data-centric analytical skills
Can apply lateral thinking to generate new solutions
Clear and clever written and verbal communication skills
A love of working in a fast paced environment
Self-starter, avid problem solver, energetic go-getter
