You'll be always looking for new growth opportunities and not be satisfied with minor results nor happy with only playing by the book.

What a day in the office(or remotely) might look like

You start the day with a standup where the team discusses what was done yesterday, any obstacles that need to be tackled and the plan for today. Before lunch, you analyze the performance of an experiment you've been running and start documenting your findings. Then you plan a session with the team to discuss the value of your findings and how to incorporate them into our campaign structure and product so that we can roll them out globally. After lunch, you start executing our new plan to grow our presence in a new niche or channel. Then you take a well-deserved break to challenge your colleagues in Foosball, Table Tennis, or Pool or join a random session on a coffee with someone. Finally, you contact your freelancer team to improve our ad copy and translations in one of the more than 20 languages you work with.
