Start-Up and Get Going...

A common fact: the face of the industry is always changing. The natural evolution of the business constantly continues, bringing about new work models, new practices and methodologies, and new demands. Here at Smith Hanley, it is our job to keep an eye to the marketplace- notice trends, patterns, areas of growth- so that we can continue to provide insight and guidance as you navigate the waters of your career.

As of late, we’ve spotted a resurgence in the number of start-up businesses showing up on the radar, and thought it worth noting. Similar to the great amount of dot-coms that sprung up within the last decade, the start-up seems to be making a comeback… a strong one at that.

With the promise of excitement and the opportunity to make a big impact in a small organization, we’ll be keeping our eye on these companies, and thought that you might like to, as well.

Here is one of the “startup opportunities” we’re currently working on:

Smith Hanley is currently working on an exciting opportunity with a well-funded, pre-IPO in the Chicago area. This online marketing and advertising company is searching for a Director/VP, Analytics who will be the lead role in the development and management of analytical solutions for optimization, forecasting, and media mix allocation, as well as the development of external client solutions for online consumer targeting, display personalization, and segmentation. This highly motivated self-starter will provide the leadership and direction needed to steer the analytical team, while also interfacing directly with strategic clients. A unique opportunity to make a true impact with a fresh, growing organization, the ideal candidate will have modeling expertise utilizing SAS & SQL and advanced degree in a quantitative discipline. $100,000-$125,000 base salary plus bonus.
