This would be the perfect challenge if you are business oriented, have experience optimizing marketing channels and the skills to lead, facilitate and implement data-driven decisions.

What you will actually be doing

  • Prioritize, plan and optimize marketing channels & campaigns using performance data

What a day in the office might look like:

You start the day analyzing performance of all our marketing channels. You notice that performance of one of our channels has dropped and dive into the data to understand the reason for that. During the daily team stand-up you'll present your findings, suggest improvements to our pricing and raise problems or challenges you have flagged. Making sure that all necessary actions will be implemented you'll switch to follow up on a new test we just launched and make decisions on its success & further actions. After lunch, and some competitive table tennis, you'll research into potential new data sources and possible ways to use them for improving our decision making process. At the end of the day you will take a moment to think about overall user acquisition strategy and collaboration with other squads.

The team: You'll be working within our Performance marketing squad, which is made up of 2 analysts, 7 marketers as well as being supported by scientists and engineers 
Tools & technology: Our data is hosted on a Redshift SQL database and we use Looker as our BI platform.
