The organization is on an upward trajectory and in the midst of a transformation from a traditional broadcast radio station to a diversified digital audio service. With a tradition of journalistic excellence and innovation, and financial stability, CPM is poised for growth in a region where private sector print and broadcast news competitors are facing significant challenges.
We are seeking a passionate, energetic and entrepreneurial individual to ignite CPM’s ability to extract audience insights from our data, to inform business decisions in support of our overall mission and goals. With the emergence of digital audio platforms, tracking and understanding audience behavior is more important than ever. The Manager of Audience Analytics will be responsible for working with data sets to understand audience trends, consumption patterns and donation behavior in order to provide analysis and guide key business decisions. A successful candidate will have strong analytic and communication skills, and have a passion for using data to drive business decisions. We are looking for someone who is a self-starter, someone that attacks complex business questions with data and curiosity and someone that dives below the surface to identify the root cause and “so what” rather than just top level trends. We are looking for an individual that thrives by providing data-driven decision support and business intelligence that is timely, accurate and actionable.
