Wanted: Incredible engineer to give up engineering
We guarantee to beat your existing salary
Here’s your chance to make a sideways career move and join the revolution that’s happening right outside your cubicle.
We’re Conversion Rate Experts (CRE), and we scientifically optimize web businesses to make them more profitable. Not just any web businesses mind. Our client portfolio includes Amazon, Apple, Google, Facebook, and Dropbox.
Here at CRE we think—we know—that brilliant engineers are what’s needed in this industry, and we’re on a mission to recruit the very best there is. In fact, our CTO and founder is a rocket scientist, and engineers are a key part of our management team.
What you’ll be doing—and why it’s an exciting opportunity
At CRE, we don’t guess what’s wrong with a web business. We find out. This is the job of our world-beating research department. The key question to address is “Why aren’t visitors converting?” and we leave no stone unturned in finding the answer.
Typically we’ll seek to understand different visitor types and intentions, identify user-experience problems, and gather and understand visitors’ objections. We have developed a unique approach to doing so that’s unrivalled in the industry.
And this is where you’ll come in. We’re looking for an engineering deity to join, and ultimately lead, our research department. We’re growing at a rate of knots, so we’re looking for someone who has the potential to follow suit. The role will effectively be a hands-on crash course in entrepreneurship.
Our methodology is much more scientific and accountable than most web businesses. The ideal candidate will be systematic in their approach, and able to master sophisticated technical concepts and apply them in situations where the cost of failure is high. You’ll also be a great communicator, capable of making sense of complex data and presenting it in a constantly innovating and evolving manner. Most of all, you’ll be a problem solver, able to think logically in complex situations.
Ideally the role will be based in our stunning UK offices in the spectacular thirteenth-century Hawkesyard Hall in Staffordshire, but we won’t be restricted by location. In fact we’re experts at working remotely, so wherever you’re based, this could be the role for you.
Salary is dependent on experience. We firmly believe that one great mind is better than one hundred mediocre ones, so we’re happy to pay the best rates for the best people.
You’ll need to have the potential to quickly become great at the following things
- Understanding the psychology of a website’s visitors.
- Project management, motivating teams, and mentoring others.
- Time management.
- Communicating complex subjects in a way that’s easy to understand.
- The psychology of persuasion.
- Web marketing.
- The Internet.
- Persuasive copywriting.
