Passionate about entrepreneurship? So are we.
Who are we at AppSumo?
AppSumo was started in 2011 with a simple idea: the tools you need to run your business shouldn’t put you out of business. Today AppSumo is home to ~20 of the best-looking and smartest (not to mention most humble) techies Austin, Texas has ever seen.
But our mission remains the same. We’ve partnered with over 1,000 startups to-date to bring our community the absolute best deals on software. These startups have gone on to become household names - we’re talking Evernote, Dropbox, and Mailchimp to name a few.
With hundreds of successful product launches and over a million entrepreneurs served, we’re looking to take AppSumo to the next level. We know that in order to do that, customer acquisition through paid media will play a big part. That’s where you, the PPC Manager, come in.
About the role:
This job is about effectively managing current PPC channels (Facebook, Google, Display) and more importantly finding and testing new channels to grow customer acquisition and expand the reach of AppSumo’s brand.
You’ll be working alongside our marketing team and will play a major role in the decisions we make as a company. On the day-to-day, you’ll be managing sizeable paid media budgets and constantly looking for new areas of opportunity. You will be tasked with creating a well-oiled growth engine through a variety of paid marketing tactics. In the first three months of this role, success means you hit $25,000 in net new revenue generated or saved from new growth or more efficient spending in the first 3 months.
This is a unique role that requires you to lead both strategy and execution for paid channels on a high-performing online marketing team. Our ideal candidate has 2-3 years PPC/paid marketing experience ideally in the software/tech space, as well as a solid foundation in all major areas of digital marketing.
Why you might love it:
If you’re excited by the prospect of developing new paid media strategies, managing big media spends, and wearing a lot of marketing hats, then this role is for you. We need someone with a proven track record of successfully growing a company’s user base with PPC channels and wants to take their experience to the next level.
Why you might not like it:
This role requires a high level of both creativity, technical skillset, and persistence that is needed to improve current growth channels and tirelessly work to find new profitable opportunities. If you’re intimidated by a fast-paced, high accountability environment, you are not process-oriented, or are risk-averse, then this role is not for you.
Pay & Benefits:
For the ideal candidate, the starting salary for this position is $101K + performance bonuses. In addition, we offer paid lunches every day, a stocked fridge, any snacks you want, and two all-expenses paid company trips with the team. (You can check them out here.) You’ll be equipped with a brand-new monitor, standing desk and any other gear you need to feel productive. Not to mention, we also have in-office massages weekly. Oh, and you can bring your dog to work. We love your dog :)
At AppSumo, we don’t believe in benchwarmers or clockwatchers: we treat all of our teammates like adults and trust that when you have something to do, you’ll get it done. If you need to run an errand, hit the gym, or meet a friend for lunch you’re encouraged to do so. You can work from home as often as you need to, and you’ll have unlimited vacation days to go on adventures. (Everyone says it, but we mean it: Take as much time as you want.)
We’re committed to creating a diverse, supportive, and collaborative working environment - every person we bring on to the team helps cultivate a culture that we’re proud of.
