We’d love to put your mind at ease while looking for a new opportunity during a pandemic.
Read about how we’re supporting #TeamThinkific during COVID-19 and how we’ve transitioned to working remotely.

Are you a proven digital marketer who loves creating and executing campaigns? Can you approach a challenge with both a creative lens and an analytical one? Does the idea of making a direct impact on a company’s growth excite you? Do you thrive when given autonomy and ample room for growth? You’re looking for a big challenge that holds big opportunities—and you’ll find that at Thinkific!

As the Growth Marketing Specialist, you’ll play a key role in optimizing Thinkific’s customer experience and driving new paid accounts through the customer funnel. You will work closely with a team of motivated, high-performing marketers, particularly with our Performance team. You’ll be responsible for end-to-end campaigns, from planning through to execution. As a multi-disciplinary marketer, you’ll have the opportunity to use your strategic, creative, and analysis skills at various points of projects.

In this role, you will:

  • Identify and execute one-off and evergreen conversion campaigns around new features or other timely opportunities, including large digital events or seasonal campaigns
  • Work closely with the Product Marketing team to own product and feature launches and communications
  • Strategize, plan, and implement ways to improve our lead-to-paid and free-to-paid conversion, from email sequences and landing page optimization to program development and beyond
  • Track performance metrics and assess new opportunities for growth and increased conversion
  • Optimize customer journey flows, including assessing current initiatives, developing recommendations, and building new collateral and customer funnels
  • Act as project manager for complex, cross-team campaigns and programs
  • Collaborate with other Marketing teams, including Content, Partnerships, and Customer Education, to build campaigns and programs that convert
  • Work closely with the Creative team to craft assets for campaigns and general marketing purposes
  • Create and iterate on persuasive written content to help show customers the value of Thinkific, encouraging them to move them along the customer journey

To be successful in this role, you must:

  • Have 3+ years of experience strategizing, executing, and reporting on digital marketing campaigns focused on customer acquisition
  • Be a strategic decision maker—you can take challenges like optimization or increasing conversions and develop strategies and build campaigns to tackle them
  • Possess intermediate to advanced knowledge of data and analytics. You can look at campaign, web, and marketing data, identify what’s important, and determine actionable insights from it
  • Take initiative and have a track record for getting things done
  • Demonstrate exceptional organizational skills— you can manage multiple projects, big and small, all without missing a beat
  • Be an excellent communicator—you’re equally comfortable discussing strategies and campaigns with different stakeholders as you are writing persuasive copy for customers throughout the funnel
  • Thrive in jumping into new projects and working in a fast-paced environment. This role will change a lot in the types of projects they work on month to month
  • Be collaborative at your core—you’re a team player, can facilitate discussions about campaigns, and both take and give valuable feedback

You might be the person we’re looking for if you:

  • Are eager to learn and grow—you’ve likely attended post-secondary education, continue to seek opportunities to level up your skills or have equivalent professional experience in a similar role
  • Approach problems with creative solutions
  • Are ambitious and driven—you’re excited to take ownership of this role

Bonus points if you:

  • Have experience growing customer bases for a SaaS-company
