JavaScript Test

Using http://www.blastam.com/analytics-consulting as your source page, write javascript that would accomplish the following:

Change the Blast Logo to redirect to the www.blastam.com/core-values instead of www.blastam.com

Rearrange the order of the six analytic tiles within the body of the page to show the "Testing & Personalization" as the first tile.

Using the same six tiles, dynamically generate a javascript object which will list each of the tiles displayed along with set of properties, including position, title and link url.

Using the Google Tag Manager dataLayer that is already present on the page, push an event with these values:

event : jsTest

event_category : Application

event_action : <<Your Name>>

event_label : <<Position Applying For>>

When a user presses the mouse down on the Tealium Partner Icon, trigger an alert with your favorite icecream flavor.

Rules of the test:

Yes, you can use jQuery.

Your solution must be entirely done via JavaScript. This means that you cannot alter the existing html code. We are taking your snippet of JavaScript code that you write and applying it to the live page via the javascript console. We recommend you test your script the same way.

You are not disqualified from being considered if you are unable to deliver a complete solution; your technique in how you approach the problem is most important

Technical Questions

Identify two tracking opportunities on this page and explain their value. Example: Tracking the "Request a Proposal" link on the CTA (call-to-action) can help with lead generation conversion analysis by Page.

In the tag management tool(s) you have expertise in, explain how you would fire a Facebook event conversion hit based on the click of the "Request a Proposal" link. Explain the requirements to deploying this tag.

Provide an example documentation on how to track the "Learn More" links to trigger a GA event via GTM and include category to be a static value "Learn More", action to be a dynamic value based on the title of the tile and label to be a dynamic value based on the link url.

For single page apps (SPA), explain the best method to capture screen views as pageviews?

Please attach your response for the JavaScript Test and Technical Questions as an additional page in your resume.
