Traineeship CRO Specialist

Digital Marketing NL

At Dept, we continuously make and deliver sites, apps and campaigns. But where the go-live of such a project is often the end; for us, it’s the beginning. How do users interact with it? How can we further improve? How do we make sure the continuous development isn’t based on gut feeling but data-driven, and we test, learn and adjust accordingly? Build, Measure, Learn!

As a web analyst/CRO specialist, we will teach you how to:

  • Analyse user behaviour, primarily in Google analytics and user feedback tools like Hotjar, and even ranging to user testing real people. So you can answer the “what” and the “why.”
  • Evaluate UX or concepts from a conversion perspective from advice (or better said, many of them) based on your research, and to evaluate what just to fix, and what to test.
  • Set up a test plan, run and evaluate A/B tests
  • Grow from optimisation to segmentation or even personalisation

In and after this traineeship, you will work closely together with our other data disciplines, like the Analytics team, providing you with the data to analyse, but also marketing disciplines like SEO who also optimise platforms, Paid marketing for campaign, UX/design for concept improvements and finally Front end development for AB setups.

This 7-month traineeship starts on February 1, and our goal is to prepare you for the next step as a consultant in our Insights team, helping our clients increase their conversion every month a little more!

The program consists of 4 parts:

  • Theory: under the guidance of our experts, you will learn all you need to know.
  • Self-study, lectures and cases by our experts, tagging along with one of the existing team members.
  • Participating in practice: Step by step, we involve you in current projects, and your role in them will become more and more important. Think of an intake with the customer, contributing to the larger analysis, performing user research or working on your CRO roasts, setting up A/B test and writing optimisation advice for concept & development teams.
  • Own projects: With all the theoretical knowledge and your practical experience gained in the meantime, you will get a few of your projects. Instead of you watching with us, we watch with you until you have everything under control.
