  • Provide the best practices and guidelines for managing data of different levels of complexity.
  • Provide hands-on support for all data related activities within the BI Team.

Experience and Knowledge:

  • Familiar with digital measurement and research, ideally across different countries.  Experience with other, non digital media, particularly TV is a bonus.
