Seattle-based humor network Cheezburger today hired its first data scientist, Sean Power, an expert in Web analytics.
That’s according to a report on ReadWriteWeb.com, which interviewed Power for an extensive story.
Power told the site that he’s building a team to “manage, analyze and ultimately productize” the results of its data analysis:
“I’m going from the top of the stack (finance, ad, core business metrics) all the way down to the individual split tests that developers are creating. Infrastructure metrics, usability metrics, qual and quant metrics. If it has a number or is a qualifier, I’ll be interested in making sense out of it, if there’s a business reason to do so.”
Cheezburger’s been on a hiring spree, working toward doubling its staff in Seattle, since it raised $30 million in January.
