About This Opportunity

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a true startup and help build a company. Our products have good fit in the marketplace but we need help creating a best in class marketing team that raises awareness of our products with the right customers at the right time to drive sales growth.

As a founding member of our Marketing team you will have the opportunity to improve the execution of existing marketing while expanding into new channels with new content types.

As part of a real startup this role requires you to strike the careful balance between digging in and relentlessly executing while also helping to level up procedures, playbooks and the role roadmap to scale with the company's growth.

Along the way you will get first hand experience with a cutting edge industry - 3d printing - and the opportunity to learn from a technical founder with significant online advertising experience who also played a key role in taking Uber Eats from 5 cities to a global food delivery giant.

Role Details

We make a wide selection of products that have been refined over the years to have strong fit in the market (sales, 5 star reviews etc..).

However our growth to date has mostly been driven organically via new products rather than consistent marketing efforts.

Our first Marketing Manager is responsible for optimizing the online presence of our products through product listings and then executing online marketing campaigns that generate significant positive ROI.

This means quickly getting into the details and taking rapid action - decision making, building, optimizing - to rapidly grow sales while maintaining profit margins.

You’ll be creating a plan, building the campaigns and creatives necessary to meet goals and adjusting campaigns (channels, bids, placements, creatives, products, audiences etc..) to achieve target ROAS. 

Success in this role is accomplished using a mix of skills to get the job done, including the ability to design high performance creatives for text, image and video, meticulous attention to financial performance and strong written communication showcasing the impact of your work.

What We’re Looking For

We’re looking for someone with experience successfully managing multiple types of online advertising campaigns, ideally in an ecommerce context where ROAS is of primary importance.

Experience with online marketplaces, display ad DSPs, landing page optimization, email marketing, video ads (ex. TikTok) and influencer marketing will be helpful to being successful in this role.

Demonstrated academic success - specifically in courses of a visual arts or mathematical nature - is also desirable and will be useful on a daily basis.
