  • Build member journey maps
  • Build and maintain scalable templates, lifecycle email automation flows, and attribution processes
  • Manage outreach lists, audience segments, and campaign inputs for member-facing campaigns
  • Assist in keeping track of where different communications are being handled (i.e., in product vs in other engagement platforms)
  • Work with cross-functional stakeholders to optimize deployment processes, including acting as a liaison between the product team and content writers
  • Establish regular reporting and dashboards to monitor campaign performance and KPIs
  • Support the R&D function in developing experiments across the member lifecycle to increase member activation, retention, and engagement

If you have some or all of the following, please apply:

  • Experience with deploying online channels, including email, SMS, and push notifications
  • Technical experience with API triggers and data synchronization
  • Strong QA skills and attention to detail, and ability to build for scale and efficiency as we grow
  • Ability to effectively collaborate and communicate cross-functionally as part of a remote team 
  • Creative problem solver able to apply expertise and learnings to new environments with new constraints
  • Bonus: Experience working in B2B2C startup environments
