We spoke with Dzmitry Zelianko who has been working for the company for almost three years. Most of this time he’s spent in the role of Team Lead at the Data Collection department. He told us more about his beginnings, technology, and clients at Delve.
Please tell us more about your Team, who you are, and what you do?
Most of the time, the Data Collection department works with the Google Marketing Platform products such as Google Analytics, Google Tag Manager, Google Data Studio, Google Optimize, Google Search Console, and Google Surveys. We run different kinds of audits, we help our clients to improve their data’s quality, enrich it, visualize, and activate.
How did you start working at Delve?
As a fast-growing company, DELVE always has some open positions. I found out about DELVE after a short conversation with a recruiter on LinkedIn. Back then, I thought, “Hey, this is a great opportunity for me and my career!”. Then I had 4 interviews (I know this sound a lot!), it was like that because Delve wanted to give me the “perfect match” position. The final interview was with our CEO, Greg Sobiech. Nowadays, it takes fewer interviews to hire somebody. Usually, it takes 2-3 calls with a candidate, and you know for sure whether you’ll be eager to invite them to DELVE.
What can you tell about the beginnings at Delve?
For every person joining the Data Collection department, we have a clear development plan. We have a framework, we call it 30/60/90. In the framework, we have a detailed plan of what has to be done during the onboarding process. There are different courses to take, certifications to pass, and new knowledge to acquire and learning how to become Delver. 😉
As soon as a newcomer passes the essential certifications, we start plugging them into “real” projects. It really helps to see how you can apply the knowledge you’ve gained. Additionally, we host several learning sessions with our team members. During those sessions, experienced colleagues share their knowledge providing more details on different aspects of our work. In most cases, upon completion of the 30/60/90 a newly hired DELVEr is ready to work with clients under the manager’s supervision. And it doesn’t matter what their knowledge level was before they joined us.
What kind of skills are you looking for in candidates?
A big role in our job plays the English language. DELVE has many big clients in the US (but not only). The better your language skills are, the better your communication with clients. That’s why DELVE is eager to pay for the English classes during the first half-year. At the same time, we are interested in our employees’ professional development, so we have an upskilling stipend for each DELVEr. The money can be spent both on online and/or offline courses.

What types of clients are you working with?
We are working with companies from different industries: Non-profit, Travel, IT Telecom, Real estate, Ecommerce, Insurance, etc. Some of our clients have 10-15k employees. Some of them appear to be worldwide organisations. Different countries, different cultures, different tasks and requests.
Nowadays, the Web Analytics field is very dynamic. The industry changes rapidly. You have to be aware of everything that happens and be able to consult your clients and partners. My team reads a lot of news and participates in numerous conferences. And this is the only way to stay in touch with the industry changes.
Why in your opinion is it worth joining Delve?
Well, a lot has already been said. However, I would like to emphasize that DELVE is a great place to start your career. At the same time, it is a great place full of opportunities for experienced specialists. We have a solid team full of great specialists who are always eager to share their knowledge with colleagues and to develop themselves.
