Description

  • Wayfair is seeking analytical, data-driven, and action-oriented candidates for Marketing Technical Analyst internship opportunities in Summer 2024. Analysts drive roadmaps, design experiments, build prototypes, create proof of concepts and perform exploratory data analysis. This is all in support of validating hypotheses while partnering with engineering and data science to implement solutions at scale. This is an ideal opportunity for candidates who are interested in entering the technology and e-commerce space, developing hands-on analytical and technical skills, and working closely with core business functions to drive real impact and results.
  • Our Marketing team drives growth for Wayfair on every major advertising platform. We aren’t your standard marketers: we own the strategy, P&L, and roadmaps for our portfolio of cutting-edge and in-house-built marketing and AdTech products. We leverage deep quantitative analytics and technology to acquire high-potential customers and engage them to come back again and again. We have petabytes of data at our fingertips, which we utilize to build algorithms and automated solutions to ensure that our offering and shopping experience delivers to each customer our brand promise of “creating your unique feeling of home.” Marketing Technical Analysts will work on highly cross functional initiatives, building capabilities across all brands (Wayfair, AllModern, Joss & Main, Birch Lane, Perigold) and geographies (North America, Europe) while focusing on specific marketing channels (e.g. paid search, display advertising, email marketing, social media, TV/Online video, etc.). Collectively these marketing channels spend over a billion dollars annually, which Technical Analysts play a critical role in maximizing each channel’s success.
