You will need to know the nuts and bolts of Internet commerce, how do I do a good affiliate deal, and what is a bad one? What is a fair price for a bannner ad? How do you count clickthroughs? No Nu-be’s please!
You will be equally at home offering a discount to an advertiser of solar panels for a banner on our home page, or negotiating with a manufacturer for a discount on a wind turbine to be sold in our online store.
At least 3 years relevant experience preferred; good teamwork vital.
