- Prepare performance reports for all campaigns, site traffic and email activity regularly in preparation for weekly and monthly meetings and other company presentations, as necessary.

Ideally you will have at least 2 years experience working in a role where you were responsible for updating content for a large, multi-faceted website. Your interpersonal skills, attention to detail, ability to work well with others across distances, and the ability to navigate a variety of internal systems and tools with a positive attitude is vital to the success of this role.
