Benchmark Business Intelligence Developer
We are experts in creative pre-testing and pack-testing. We help clients worldwide to test whether their advertising (all media, including digital) and packaging is competitive by benchmarking their performance against our own database. We are on the lookout for a dynamic and talented business intelligence developer to make the most out of this company asset. Additionally, plans are to set up benchmarks for other types of research too, working closely with research managers and solution owners.
The benchmark business intelligence developer is responsible for three key areas:
– Managing the database
- Uploading data collected from projects around the world into the database (compliance).
- Transition the database(s) to a new system.
- Improving data quality, including error detection and correction.
- Examining what KPIs can add value to the database.
– Extracting insights out of the database
- Running meta-analysis on both pre- and pack-testing (can be per media type/category, for a dedicated client, etc.).
- Answering questions on the database (from sales and research teams).
- Supporting benchmark information (e.g. proposals).
– Automating our platform
- Currently new data is uploaded to the database manually. We’re building an improved Data Management Platform in which to eventually integrate it. The ambition is to fully automate the database completion. You will be an active member of the team working towards this goal (along with the Platform owners). This requires technical affinity.
The benchmark business intelligence developer is part of the Global Innovation and Consultancy team, and will work with salespeople, the solution owners (for pre- and pact-testing), research managers, operation managers, platform owners, and marketing. Good communication skills are a must!

- Interested in market research.
- Is technically capable of running analysis and interpreting numbers and data, then transforming them into triggering stories that will inspire clients (client presentations can be required).
- Ability to initiate and manage change, as well as lead others in the change.
- Good communicator who is adept at explaining issues in a straightforward way.
- Flexible, proactive, driven, organized/structured, has an eye for detail, tech savvy and an all-around fun colleague.

What we offer:
- A challenging position in a dynamic, fast-paced, innovative, quickly growing global company.
