Rarefied talent in data science, data technology, and analytics

Sr Manager of Customer Experience & Analytics


Job Description

Moosejaw is the most fun outdoor retailer ever.  We sell the finest gear and outerwear through Moosejaw.com, our catalog, and our ten retail shops in Michigan, Illinois, Colorado and Missouri.  It’s a very exciting time for us as we are experiencing very rapid growth.  At Moosejaw, our goal is to make shopping as much fun as climbing in the Himalayas. Not that climbing in the freezing cold weather is fun but you know what we mean.

We’re seeking a Sr. Manager of Customer Experience & Analytics to join our marketing team based out of our headquarters in Madison Heights, Michigan.  Do you love digging into data to find key insights?  Do you live to discover the key ways to increase customer lifetime value?  Do you yearn to understand how customer shopping flows and how to remove barriers to conversion?  Do you thrive in a culture of constant change, testing and improvement?  If so, then do we have a role for you!

This exciting role manages the overall customer experience and relationship from their first site visit through to ongoing loyalty campaigns.  As such, it encompasses multiple disciplines including web analytics, user experience, A/B testing, email marketing, and Customer Relationship Management (CRM).  Yes, that’s quite a lot of stuff… but at the center of it all are the customer and data.  Lots and lots of data.  In the right hands (brain cells, really), all of that data can provide powerful insights on how we improve customer conversion, engagement and loyalty.

Don’t worry, you won’t be expected to do it all by yourself.  This leadership role includes a team of four direct reports across email, A/B and UI testing, and data analytics.  You will be responsible for prioritizing the team’s work around understanding and communicating the customer experience metrics across all devices and channels. You will lead the measurement, testing and improvement of the user experience on Moosejaw.com.  Together with your team, you will recommend UI changes and work across teams (from creative to IT) to design, build, and implement improvements that will delight customers as measured by metrics such as time-on-site, ATC, conversion, AOV, reorder rate, and LTV.     

We’re looking for an experienced leader who knows how to prioritize and use data to make strategic decisions.  Somebody who has the web analytic skills to work effectively with developers to improve the user experience.  Somebody who isn’t afraid to ask questions and challenge conventional thinking or the way we’ve always done things at Moosejaw.  Somebody who is a passionate advocate of improving the customer experience on our site.  Also you must have a strong affinity for the Moosejaw brand and our culture.  If you like the outdoors, that’s a cherry on top of the icing which is also on top of the cake.
