WHEN YOU CARE ENOUGH YOU CAN CHANGE THE WORLD.
Do you want to work for one of the world's most trusted and recognized brands? Hallmark is a company rooted in connecting people. We care for our employees, our communities, and our world. A career at Hallmark means you get to make a big impact and create something that can make a genuine difference. We’re looking for people who want to continue to carry our vision forward.
The Insights & Analytics team is passionate about understanding people--their relationships, behaviors, needs, and realities--and bringing the mind of the consumer to product development and business decisions. We are data-driven in our approach, using "soft" and "hard" data to bring to life our consumers' whats and whys. We are the truth-tellers, the advocates. We are a collaborative in-house research & analytics team, driven to bring insights to life and to engaged stakeholders.
You will love working in the Insights & Analytics department if you:
Want to make a difference in the future of Hallmark. We aren't saving lives, but we are helping to make people's lives better, kinder, and more connected.
Have an innate, almost incurable, curiosity about people and their lives.
Believe life is too short not to enjoy the people you work with each day. Our department is made up of some of the most supportive, talented, smart, kind, dedicated people and teams.
As a member of our Insights & Analytics team, you will play a critical role in supporting Hallmark's digital initiatives across retailers and businesses by providing an understanding of online shopping, path-to-purchase, and drivers of digital commercialization for our categories. You will work with our Hallmark.com, Digital Commercialization, and key customer teams (for their click-and-collect capabilities), helping to identify insights with the potential to grow our digital business. Additionally, you will lead other research initiatives (outside of digital) in service of the Consumer & Shopper Insight team and the Insights & Analytics team as a whole.
The ideal candidate will be passionate about helping our stakeholders become wildly successful, delivering financial results and critical capabilities. You will be thoughtful, thorough, creative, collaborative, and will inspire people around you. You will be technical enough to have spirited debates with our seasoned research/digital teams and creative enough to collaborate on problem solving. You will be a high-impact, visible ‘resident expert’ on what our consumers/shoppers are doing, saying, and the ‘why’ underneath their behavior and motivations. Effective and engaging communication skills will help you succeed.
You will be tasked with a variety of responsibilities, including:
Identifying areas where consumer research or input are required
Recommending and designing appropriate studies or research initiatives
Executing a range of different types of consumer/shopper studies, as needed to address business challenges
Synthesizing and analyzing data from multiple sources, translating research insights into actionable recommendations and direction
Managing day-to-day relationships and project logistics with external research partners as needed
Acting as a knowledge source and subject matter expert in the digital commercialization space
