Senior Director, Marketing - Push and Email

| Chicago

 

Connecting with our customers is at the heart of everything we do. Can you lead the charge?

 

Groupon’s mission is to become the daily habit in local commerce and fulfill our purpose of building strong communities through thriving small businesses. We connect people to a vibrant, global marketplace for local services, experiences and goods. In the process, we’re positively impacting the lives of millions of customers and merchants globally. Even with thousands of employees spread across multiple continents, we still maintain a culture that inspires innovation, rewards risk-taking and celebrates success. If you want to take more ownership of your career, then you're ready to be part of Groupon.

 

As the Senior Director of Push and Email, you will lead the growth and expansion of Groupon’s Push Notification and Email Strategy, improving the customer experience. This role is part of a fun, diverse and dynamic North America Marketing Team and is critical to driving incremental profit from the full scope of our push and email program - from subscribers through to incremental profit maximization. Specifically, you will be a hands-on leader to the analytics, data science, strategy and execution team. You will also be the business owner and partner to the Product and Engineering teams that support your channel. You will work with marketing teams across digital and offline channels, as well as business teams across our North American categories to ensure a seamless end to end experience. This is a high exposure, high impact role that will shape the company’s marketing efforts and drive a consistent retail strategy and approach.

 

We're a "best of both worlds" kind of company. We're big enough to have resources and scale, but small enough that a single person has a surprising amount of autonomy and can make a meaningful impact. We're curious, fun, a little intense, and kind of obsessed with helping local businesses thrive. Does that sound like a compelling place to work?

 

 

You’ll spend time on the following:

  • You will lead the transformation, shape and growth of Groupon’s Push Notification and Email Strategy - driving mobile app downloads, push notification and email subscribers, gross profit, and customers

  • You will collaborate and provide internal expertise on push platforms driving utilization by Brand, Vertical, Lifecycle, and Revenue Management Teams to achieve objectives

  • Build amazing Push Notification, Email, and Push Data Science and Analytics teams and a winning culture that encourages innovation, resulting in significantly improved business performance

  • Develop and lead testing programs to increase contribution of Push Channels

  • You will collaborate with product to drive roadmap aligned to vision and mapped to CLTV growth

  • Act as an inspiring leader and establish methodologies and processes around powering and enabling email for the organization

  • You will work with senior leadership to set and execute department plans against revenue and customer goals and to communicate key insights and recommendations

  • Provide Push Channel Analytics and use insights to inform customer experience, marketing strategy, product strategy, and overall revenue strategy

  • Effectively balance efficiency improvements and placing bold bets on growth

 

We’re excited about you if you have:

  • 10+ years of experience in e-commerce and database driven marketing, email marketing and strong consumer orientation

  • Bachelor's degree in Marketing, Economics, or Finance; Master's degree in Marketing or MBA is a plus

  • You have deep expertise in running large-scale transactional online email and push marketing channels

  • You have experience building, leading, and inspiring medium-sized teams

  • A proven track record of development and execution of creative, innovative strategies to meet both the right long term outcomes and short term results

  • You’re strong with unstructured problem solving and analysis - you’re able to manipulate complex data and move past simple insights into actionable recommendations

  • You have proven experience in conducting statistical tests for marketing optimization

  • You have excellent written and verbal communication skills with the ability to present complex information in a clear and concise manner to influence a variety of audiences

An Insider's view of Groupon

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Groupon provides an environment where I can strive for maximum work-life effectiveness, room for growth, and there is always something new to do. I enjoy spending lots of time at work because I love what I do; the hours are not burdensome, Groupon fits me. I define success in my own terms & Groupon provides us with the flexibility to be successful.

Milan

Senior Manager of Operations

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We are working on arriving at the optimal attribution models across different areas of our business. For example, the attribution of a purchase to a specific experience — a home page feature, an email, a push notification — likely has a different window of time where we can reasonably say a specific purchase is a result of a specific experience.

Kristi

Data Scientist

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Here at Groupon, what you do matters. I got my start at Groupon as an intern and have had the opportunity in the past (almost) 5 years to build out a global volunteer program that has engaged over 5,000 employees in over 63,000 hours of service supporting the work of close to 650 nonprofit organizations.

What projects are you most excited about?

Recently, we committed to having 100% of our job descriptions reviewed for gender balance by the end of 2018. Also for 2018, work will continue with our Employee Resource Groups, who play a pivotal part in the attraction and selection of diverse top talent, and themselves can be developed and promoted into company leaders.
