Experience in touching the ecommerce package or WCM package space (Hybris, Sitecore, EpiServer, AEM/CQ, other parts of the Adobe Cloud, Demandware, Magento, Shopify).
This individual would also need to know the digital strategy, creative/visual design, and user experience worlds well so they can be effective at communicating my clients message as far as the services they offer in the Digital arena.
There certainly are opportunities to discuss things like VR, beacons, IoT. Expertise that they can assist companies as they innovate and create experiences that are consistent and effective across all channels ? the obvious example would be thinking about how you or I use a website differently when we pull it up on our computer vs. when we?re walking and looking at the app on our phone ? the brand wants it to be consistent, but our needs as users are very different in those moments, even though it?s the exact same individual. Pulling that perspective back another level and thinking about how that integrates to the in-store experience or being able to use a kiosk/interface and still trying to engage.
Commerce and consumers are evolving very quickly, both technically and in terms of expectations, so my client is offering solutions that can help solve an identified need, but also strategic help for when they know there is a problem but don?t have a solution, and when there isn?t even a problem, just a desire to stay ahead and innovate and avoid problems. Hope that made sense. I am looking for someone really sharp that gets the above and has a passion for Digital Strategy and has the HUNTER business mentality. They will be based in Plano TX. Compensation is dependent on experience.
Here is the more formal job description:
