Ecommerce Business Analyst
Selling online is a complex business, with the whole range of marketing, digital optimisation, customer-facing websites and apps, warehousing, logistics and security to factor in. For this to work, the business needs to be able to have a bird’s eye view of how it is run, in what direction it is going and how to influence its future for the better. The business analyst in ecommerce will oversee this process, working with the board, data analysts and the digital teams to ensure the company’s strategic goals are on course.
The ecommerce business analyst will look in depth at the whole user experience and how it affects customer satisfaction and where it puts stress on the business. They will then draw conclusions, backed up by solid data, as to where the business can be improved. Their recommendations, alongside other sales and growth strategies, will play a key role in steering future decisions and KPIs.
The skills required
Ecommerce business analyst jobs usually demand experience in working with customer-facing retail businesses. Successful applicants must have a firm grip on how ecommerce works and how UX and fulfillment satisfaction can make or break an online retailer.
You’ll understand how ecommerce projects are planned and implemented, and will be able to work alongside technical development teams, sales and marketing specialists and the key decision makers, and report findings and solutions effectively.
Ecommerce Business Analyst Jobs in Basingstoke
Situated in north-east Hampshire, less than 50 miles from London and just 16 miles from Reading, Basingstoke is a lovely town that has expanded significantly since the end of the 20th century. Today, it offers a variety of possibilities for those seeking Ecommerce Business Analyst vacancies.
With its beginnings as a Saxon village, Basingstoke was a fairly large settlement at the time of the Domesday Book, with a population of around 200, three water-powered flour mills and a weekly market.
By the 13th century, this population had nearly tripled and the town was granted a charter in 1257 - at the time, its economy mainly relied on the production of wool and cloth.
The railway arrived in Basingstoke in 1839, simplifying transport and trade between the town and London, as well as offering connections the following year to Winchester and Southampton.
Later in the 19th century, Thomas Burberry set up his first shop in Basingstoke, and his brand grew to become a household name - one which continues to be known for its luxury fashion and tartan pattern, although the company is now headquartered in London.
These days, Basingstoke is an economic hub and home to the UK headquarters of a number of large financial, insurance and technology companies - including Motorola, Sony Professional Solutions, Sun Life, The Automobile Association and ST Ericsson. Meanwhile, pharmaceuticals facilities are operated by the likes of Mercona, Valeant, Steris, Shire and Biomerieux.
