About the Role

The Head of Insight & Analytics runs a team of Insight Analysts and Data Analysts who together deliver data-driven, actionable insights to Beamly clients. The team primarily focuses on campaign and media strategy, digital consumer behaviour, and digital marketing execution. Working closely with the Marketing Science leadership team, this role is pivotal in defining and shaping the innovative use of data across Beamly and its clients.

In Marketing Science at Beamly, we are driven by 4 key principles:

  • Avid Curiosity
    Data is our raw material; we relentlessly mine it for new insights to power brand results. We believe in experimentation and exploration, bringing quantitative evidence to decisions. We constantly look for new ways to gather data and new methodologies to surface insights.
  • Scalable solutions
    We follow the DRY principle (don’t repeat yourself), looking always to find ways to scale what we do. We seek to automate where ever possible to focus expert input on the most valuable output. Reproducible analysis is at the heart of our approach.
  • Applied insights
    Beamly is a data-first organization, powered by insights from the Marketing Science team. We undertake research and analysis where there is a clear path to action. We empower our colleagues and clients with the data and insights they need to make better decisions and take better actions
  • Audience first
    We understand that insights are only valuable when they are understood. We tailor outputs to the needs of the audience, summarizing and simplifying or depth and detail as required. Our outputs are visually engaging and lean on visualization to tell clear narratives.

We combine these principles to deliver game-changing insights that our clients both love and can immediately understand how they deliver results.
