We are looking for a highly motivated individual who is willing to develop their knowledge and experience to help create a market-leading E-Commerce website in a rapidly growing company.

With a passion for improving the customer experience, you will be integral in discovering opportunities, defining solutions and validating that these solutions work. This hands-on role works across departments. You will utilise platforms available and customer insights/behavioural data to optimise the website through configuration, tuning/optimisation, content and new features.

The product function at Beer Hawk is evolving with this a great time to join a growing and adapting team. This also means the product area for this role will change as the organisation and Product Team changes.


What you will be doing

  • Management of site changes through the agile delivery process, working closely with the Tech team as well as business scrum teams
  • Lead definition of requirements for select projects and functional areas
  • Website configuration for site features on Magento 2 and other 3rd party software
  • Search and browse tuning as well as site optimisation
  • Behaviour analysis using Google Analytics to make suggestions into site changes and validate enhancements
  • Exploring other research sources for best practice and improvements including customer feedback
  • Management of website issues, ensuring they are prioritised and fixed appropriately
  • Support marketing in managing site content


There is huge scope to make a positive difference to this fast-growing business, with the opportunity to take the role further over time.  


Skills & Experience you need to do the role:

  • Previous experience in a digital role(s) advantageous
  • Organised to manage multiple tasks and requests
  • Methodical and analytical mindset to discover enhancements and opportunities based on data
  • A drive to make the customer experience better
  • Strong communication skills to work with different departments
  • Experience with gathering, evolving and explaining requirements
  • Inquisitive nature, wanting to find solutions for business and customer challenges
  • Web analysis experience using Google Analytics or alternative
  • Some understanding of HTML/CSS
  • Understanding of digital marketing and Website optimisation/CRO would be an advantage
  • Magento experience would be an advantage

The behaviours we know work:

  • Being a true self-starter. Beer Hawk & ZX are proud of the speed at which our business moves so we like to work with those who are willing to be a part of our fast-paced environment.
  • Someone who is inherently curious - you know how to ask questions to get to the heart of the matter.
  • Skills and experience are great but what’s crucial is enthusiasm for the role and the ability to embody Beer Hawk’s values.
