Marketing Technology (MarTech) is critical to enabling us to successfully optimize and improve our marketing execution. Having the right tech in place which is fully understood and utilized will enable us to maximise the value of our data assets and drive hyper personalized, relevant and scalable communications and customer journeys across our digital channels.

The MarTech Lead is a key role in ensuring we implement, develop and maintain a MarTech stack that allows us to be at the forefront of delivering personalized and aligned marketing comms, enabling them to be customer first, data led and drive performance efficiencies. Reporting into the Head of Data, you will ensure we can maximize the value of our data assets through the use of MarTech, whilst also partnering closely with key marketing teams (search, social, CRM) and the tech team to ensure we implement and leverage world class MarTech solutions.

  • Identify opportunities to improve our marketing capabilities (data access, automation etc.) through improved MarTech, briefing this into the tech team and ensuring the appropriate solutions are delivered.
  • Monitor the use of our MarTech platforms, finding opportunities to improve operational efficiencies and processes for more effective utilization of those platforms
  • Research and identify new capabilities in marketing technology, run POCs to address gaps in marketing capability.

  • Ensure that our MarTech stack effectively captures core data events, working with the data & tech teams to provide access to these within our analytics data warehouse & data lake
  • Support the analytics and data science teams in the effective deployment of in-house segmentations and predictive models within our MarTech stack

To be successful in the role you would need the following:

  • Extensive experience within a MarTech focused role, with heavy exposure and ownership of MarTech platform delivery and utilization
  • Experience of successfully implementing and driving commercial value with MarTech platforms (CDP, marketing automation tool, campaign management solutions etc.)
