AYKO is on the lookout for a CRO Specialist who’s looking to take that next step forward in their career! With this role, we’re looking for someone who wants to enhance the CRO offering within the Creative Department and can bring experience to help grow the current processes.

As a key member of the Creative Department, you will be expected to consult on CRO strategies for our portfolio of e-commerce clients. You will help develop CRO roadmaps for clients, helping to plan out their improvement strategies over a period of time.

At AYKO we create and market high-quality e-commerce websites for well-known brands and we’re growing at an impressive pace thanks to our great reputation. We are proud to offer hybrid working, flexibility and continuous development opportunities to help you achieve your career goals.

  • Be proficient working with Google Tag Manager to create tags, triggers, and variables

  • Help support and mentor more junior members of the team with CRO, report proofing, and general management of UX/CRO output

Whilst this role is a stand-alone role currently, we’re looking for someone ambitious who is ready to build a team. As your portfolio grows, so will your team and we’d love to be in a position where this role oversaw a sizeable team of experts in time.

At AYKO we’re currently working with a combination of remote and face-to-face working. Whilst this role will be based out of our Leeds city centre HQ we’re flexible on remote working providing candidates can travel to Leeds once a week if needed.
