Job description


Marketing science and analytics have a rich and productive history within Unilever. For over 30 years, the CMI Advanced Analytics Unit (AAU) has been the Global Centre of Excellence for driving the agenda throughout the company, ensuring our marketing is inspired by evidence and standard methodology. We blend a strong understanding of our data sources (which describe our consumers, brands, categories, and markets) with the technical modeling expertise to derive robust insights from these data sources, all packaged in tools and software that makes it easy and intuitive for the organization in regards to decisions.

Today, the demand for analytics to power our insight and decisions is far greater than ever before, as the range of data sources available to us grows exponentially, and the technology to make sense of it evolves daily. It is imperative to be at the forefront of this revolution, ensuring that data-driven marketing becomes second nature whilst pushing the boundaries on what is possible through new modeling methodologies and democratizing the power of analytics by building user-friendly interfaces, and simulators to ensure wider adoption by business partners across the Unilever world. In line with this vision, AAU has been renamed Predictive Marketing and Shopping Analytics (PMSA) in CMI.
