Words from Amin Harari, Founder & Chief Strategy Officer, ClearCut Analytics
ClearCut’s mission is to empower consumer packaged goods brands by providing critical sales data for strategic decisions and existing as a missing link in the retail data ecosystem. With a database of more than $50 billion in analyzed e-commerce, they’ve set their sights on growing their internal teams and improving their company culture for even bigger wins in the coming year.
What is one of the most important focuses for your business in the coming months?
2021 is a pivotal and exciting time for ClearCut. We have spent the last several years building a strong foundation for scale with proven products and services, the right team and a vibrant workplace, and now we are ready to hyper-focus on growth.
So how do we accomplish this? First, we have developed an aggressive product roadmap. Our roadmap aims to optimize our data processing as well as build new features to further position ClearCut as the leading provider of retail and consumer insights for CPG brands.
Second, we plan to invest heavily in our sales and marketing teams to expand our target market and accelerate brand awareness.
And third, we are committed to doubling-down on our culture. We are sensitive to ensuring that growth will not compromise the unique and positive atmosphere we have worked so diligently to create.
Bringing on the right people that not only embody our values, but also believe in the power of data for better decision-making, will be key criteria.”
What impact will this have on the business and/or your industry?
From an industry perspective, ClearCut is the missing link in the retail data ecosystem. As more CPG companies pair our e-commerce and Amazon sales data with brick-and-mortar data, they will be best positioned to innovate and scale in today’s dynamic retail environment.
From a business perspective, in order for ClearCut to grow quickly, we will need to nearly double our headcount by the end of the year. Most of these hires will be on our sales, marketing and product teams.
For instance, we will be seeking passionate sales development representatives, account executives, digital marketing leaders, client success managers and product engineers. Bringing on the right people that not only embody our values, but also believe in the power of data for better decision-making, will be key criteria. On top of this, we are excited to offer advancement opportunities for existing employees that have proven they are ready to step up during this critical phase of growth.
