Data Analyst

Blackbird Garage Chicago, IL

Our clients need help with making sense of their data so they can make sound data driven decisions.  Many of our clients don’t have the internal resources to clean up and analyze their data.  You can’t blame them.  Before we started running their paid social ads, they were doing less than $1m in annual sales.  Now, they’re on pace for over $30m annually and are running as fast as they can to manage this breakneck growth.

As our in house Data Analyst, you will work on a variety of projects for our clients.  One project might be extracting and cleansing existing data.  Another might be doing a deep dive on customer lifetime value.  Your analyses will directly impact the decisions our clients make.

What we do, and how we do it:

Blackbird Garage is a digital growth agency that specializes in direct response customer acquisition.  In our first 2 years of operating, we’ve helped 4 companies scale from around $1m in annual revenue to $30m+ annual run rates.  We have more clients on that same path.   How?  We’re experts at ecommerce strategy and paid social advertising.  Think Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest ads.  We plan and optimize paid social campaigns.  We achieve scale, profitably.
