Job Description

Director, Digital Data and Analytics (Marketing)
The Howard Hughes name is synonymous with entrepreneurial vision, tenacity and a pioneering spirit—values still embodied by The Howard Hughes Corporation today. While Hughes’ passion for aviation and the silver screen are legendary, it was his investment in real estate that forms the bedrock of the company.  At the core of our DNA, we believe we can Make Life Extraordinary.  We strive to embody these same qualities for every individual that our company touches, from stakeholders to partners, from consumer to shareholder.
We believe in “Thinking Big” at The Howard Hughes Corporation.   We demand excellence and an unrelenting dedication to success.  Our mission is to be the pre-eminent developer and operator of master planned communities and mixed-use properties in the United States.  We create timeless places and memorable experiences that inspire people while driving sustainable, long-term growth and value. We create environments where people want to live, work, shop, dine and play from coast to coast.
Data drives business decisions, informs marketing spend, and is a key indicator of growth.  We are looking for a digital data expert; someone who can own data – with a focus on digital - across marketing efforts for the entire company. Someone who will be challenged to evolve the role of data in building strategy and assessing performance.
The Director manages and works alongside the Data Analyst to develop cross-media measurement strategy for our properties across multiple verticals. This individual should have a strong understanding of tools in the digital analytics and research space, and will be familiar with various modeling and technology offerings to recognize project opportunities and represent these offerings to business leaders.  The Director will be collaborative and inspiring in their drive to define and execute the strategy for how we leverage digital data and analytics in our decision-making across the HHC organization.
