Our web analytics team is a rapidly expanding part our business and one of the most established and highly respected in the UK. We work with a broad range of clients from any sector you could imagine. On any given day, you could be working with a global ecommerce brand in the morning and a local services consultancy in the afternoon.

As part of Merkle EMEA we hold the most Adobe Solutions Specialisations of any other global organisation and are looking to hire a solutions consultant to lead the delivery of Adobe Analytics implementation and insights work. The successful candidate will instantly be an important and significant part of our Adobe Analytics team. Our team recently delivered one of the first ever implementations of Adobe Experience Platform in EMEA and we expect our involvement in AEP to increase in 2021!

A typical day will rarely be the same but could be a mixture of coding, leading projects and teams, analysing data, presenting to clients, developing and delivering training, mentoring and learning about new technologies and analysis methods.

The development of our technical capabilities and thought leadership within the Adobe Analytics space will be a critical part of the role. Having said that, there will be the opportunity to work with/learn about the Google Analytics 360 Suite if desired. After all, we are also the largest Sales Partner for the 360 Suite in the UK!
