The Media Insights & Analytics Team is a vital component of RhythmOne's sales team and helps us differentiate ourselves from other competitors in the space. We are uniquely positioned to provide thought leadership research, deep level campaign analysis, and strategic recommendations to both our internal sellers and directly to our client and agency partners. Though this is an analytics role, we place a strong emphasis on the ability to work with limited sets of data to derive unique and insightful recommendations for our clients. This role will require a high degree of initiative and the ability to work independently, requiring a fast learner who will be self-motivated to become a company expert in order to best support sales operations. Travel to support satellite sales offices, particularly on the East Coast, may be required but will not be a day-to-day part of the job.
