  • Broadly understand the engineering costs associated with initiatives. Bring a sense of what’s easy, what’s hard, and what’s worth pushing through even if it’s hard.
  • Startup/E-commerce/SaaS experience is a plus.
  • Best-in-class experience building in-app mobile growth strategy, achieving conversion and retention goals.
  • Strong background in design and analysis of in-product funnel conversion tactics.
  • Expertise in audience segmentation, measurement, optimization, and automation.
  • Evidence of effective communication and collaboration skills to work successfully in a 100% remote team environment.

  • The opportunity to make significant, impactful contributions across several marketing disciplines.
  • The balance of individual projects where you’ll be able to immerse yourself in complicated tasks, but also day-to-day teamwork with both the Growth, Integrated Marketing, Engineering and many more teams across Marco Polo. There is great opportunity for learning, while working in a supportive environment.
  • The space to thrive at a purpose-driven company where we’re looking to make a positive impact in the world.
