Growth Marketing Strategist
So what does a Growth Marketing Strategist do all day? We research, analyze and identify barriers in our user’s experience and empathize with how and why they occur. We construct testing strategies and execute on them by writing product adoption messaging, building user communication flows, collaborating with teammates to model tests, publish, measure outcomes, and iterate; all with a high level of autonomy and efficiency.
Sprout Social is used by over 25,000 brands worldwide including Evernote, adidas, West Elm and Edelman. These businesses rely on Sprout to create stronger relationships with their customers through social media. The strategies you implement will directly impact our customer growth.
In this role, you’ll collaborate with partners in product, engineering, marketing and sales to increase Trial to Customer conversion rates, product adoption, and upsell opportunities. This team moves quickly and has the means to test changes in the Sprout product itself. This is a perfect role for someone who embraces learning through hands-on experimentation and has a hunger for understanding what makes our users tick.
We’re looking for someone with previous experience running successful tests to drive business results. You have developed a process for using data to successfully drive marketing strategy. You have a working knowledge of conversion rate optimization, persuasive writing/storytelling and user psychology.
If you enjoy problem solving in interdisciplinary teams, taking risks and failing forward, we’d love to chat with you.
