MECLABS – Why Work For Us?

MECLABS is a science lab that uses real-world research to help business leaders get better use out of sales and marketing technology and resources, including Internet marketing, website optimization, and lead generation and nurturing. We have been involved in direct research partnerships with companies throughout Europe and North America since 2001.

MECLABS deploys a rigorous Methodology to conduct research. This research is compiled from:

  • More than 15 years of research partnership with our clients
  • 1,300 experiments
  • Over 1 billion emails
  • 10,000 landing pages tested
  • 5 million telephone calls
  • 500,000 decision maker conversations

Insights from our work are then codified within our Primary Research groups. Much of this information is published for free via our web sites, newsletters, blogs, and web clinics. In aggregate, our research is made available in more than 100 conferences, and through over 974 case studies753 articles and 180 research briefs.

You’ve probably seen our research in action and never even realized it. In addition to the direct impact our Conversion Group has had on the way Internet marketing is done, our Training Group has educated marketers from countries such as the United States, Canada, Israel, the Netherlands, Singapore, Thailand, Portugal, Australia, New Zealand, the UK, United Arab Emirates, Belgium, and France.

We’ve influenced the Internet marketing industry in many other ways as well:

  • MECLABS was the first Internet-based research lab to conduct rigorous experiments across multiple industries to objectively identify what really works in marketing.
  • The group’s findings have been quoted in more than 13,000 sources ranging from the Economist to the Harvard Business School.

Want to join the MECLABS Team?

At MECLABS, we’re scientists. We are always trying something new to discover what really works. And we’re optimizers. We put those discoveries into practice in partnership with Fortune 50 companies and emerging businesses interested in improving their bottom line through better marketing and sales programs. 

We are currently looking for star players to add to our team. If you enjoy a fast-paced environment where the only limit to your growth is your own capabilities, please check our open positions below. 

We’ve hired people with experience ranging from IT, sales, marketing, finance, recreation, apparel quality evaluation, and food science. But they all had one thing in common…the capacity to grow, explore, question, push, invent, and change things.

Our organization has been involved in direct Research Partnerships with companies throughout Europe and North America since 2001. MECLABS is a research institution focused on offer-response optimization particularly in the field of “value-exchange.” 

MECLABS houses two wholly owned primary research facilities that currently conduct over 1,300 major experiments each year. In all, we have conducted tests with over 10,000 landing pages across 1 billion email sends and 5 million telephone calls. We have also developed the largest library of test protocols in our field. 

As a means of field-testing our discoveries, our organization has created micro-research laboratories/projects within major companies around the world. We regularly publish the findings of this research at MECLABS in publications and briefings through MECLABS subsidiaries MarketingExperiments and MarketingSherpa. 

As part of this work, MECLABS developed a patented platform with nine new conversion-related distribution formulas and a new research methodology for single-factorial testing and multifactorial testing in a digital environment.


So, what am I getting myself into if I decide to click on “Apply Now”? Who would I be meeting with? How long is the process? Will I need to know quantum physics? You might be asking yourself these questions or more, so we wanted to help ease any concerns, satisfy curiosity, or just prepare you for the MECLABS interview experience.

We’ve developed a process to help you identify if the opportunity with MECLABS is the right fit for you. Our process is thorough, as our team members invest as much as 21 hours in each candidate hired – from reviewing resumes and skills tests to preparing and conducting interviews.  We respect your time and take your investment seriously.

All of our interviews employ behavioral-based interview questions, where we are looking for examples of what you have done, not solely for your opinion or hypothetical situations.  We want you to be prepared to talk about your past experiences, professional, academic or personal. Both successes as well as mistakes or failures.

Typical steps may include (not necessarily in this order):

  • a phone interview with someone from our human resources team,
  • a chance to show your stuff in a skills assessment,
  • a tour of our facility,
  • interviewing with team members from the position department (make sure to ask a lot of questions about the role and team),
  • completing a couple of personality assessments (these help us get to know you a little better, a little faster)
  • and interviewing with senior leaders.

We realize that this is a time investment on both our parts, but hope the process provides you with a good experience as well.  We do our best to keep you updated as to where you are in the process and if we are not moving you forward, we will let you know as soon as a decision is made.

    I have been working at MECLABS full-time (more than 5 years)


    Great learning opportunities. You'll almost immediately start working and having direct impact on the marketing initiatives of Fortune 50 companies and small businesses alike. Very young, casual, intellectual atmosphere. Lots of interesting conversations to be had on the floor.


    Not a job to consider for the long term. Only so much advancement available. Leadership of company openly states that you should be focused on working for intrinsic value rather than monetary incentive. Think of this gig as a really well paid internship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a structure that allows talented employees to at least conceive of making a career out of MECLABS. A belief that long term financial security reflective of educational attainment and skill set can be obtained is necessary.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at MECLABS.

    Interview Details

    Basically, I would reiterate would most people have said already. Overdone and generic interview questions such as "Tell me about a time when you had to deal with an angry customer," and "tell me about a time where you failed to meet a deadline." Then they basically re-phrased these questions. I also had to do 2 phone interviews and a copy editing test before even getting into the office for a face to face. I felt very confident about my interview, and I usually get call-backs. However, they emailed me with a declination letter that proclaimed that while my skills were impressive, they felt I wouldn't "enjoy" the position...I was baffled they could make that determination. It appears to be a euphemistic way they like to decline applicants so they don't hurt feelings. Interviewers were young, naive and seemed bored. The only friendly/warm person was the receptionist. It doesn't even seem like a great place to's just one of the only 10 copy editing positions in lame-o Jacksonville. Also, this was about 2 years ago...the position is still posted on Indeed...
