Finance for Businesses Made Easy
We believe marketers come in two forms: artists or scientists. Artists create beautiful brands that connect with people. They are often the minds behind a viral campaign or a beautiful offline scheme. Scientists are quantitative, they focus on engineering the infrastructure to measure and deliver engagement at certain metrics.
We need a scientist.
