Marketing Strategist


Join Brilliant Metrics on a quest to rid the marketing world of waste. Help us tear down silos, kill "big campaign" thinking and impart a results-oriented mindset where the mantra has been, “As long as the CEO likes it.” We are not an advertising agency, nor general business consultants. We are a marketing consultancy focused on helping our clients create sustainable marketing programs with built-in methods for continuous improvement.

Are you a data-driven strategic planner, leader, teacher and mystery solver? I’m not asking if you can make pretty graphs from Google Analytics exports. I am asking if you can architect measurable, sustainable marketing programs that produce unquestionable value for our clients.
