Who Is AppSumo:
AppSumo was started in 2011 by serial online entrepreneur Noah Kagan. The idea was simple: the tools you need to run your business shouldn’t put you out of business. Today, the AppSumo team is home to some of the best talent from Facebook, Microsoft, Bloomberg, to name a few. We’re always looking for the best and brightest to join our team.
To date, we’ve partnered with over 1,000 startups to bring our community the absolute best deals on software. These startups have gone on to become household names in software, we’re talking companies like Evernote, Dropbox, and Mailchimp. With hundreds of successful product launches and over a million entrepreneurs served, we’re looking to take AppSumo to the next level.
That’s where you, the Deal Launch Project Manager comes in.
About the Role:
At AppSumo, we’re putting together the absolute best software deals to serve our community of 1 million+ entrepreneurs. We’re landing some of our biggest partnerships yet and your role will be to craft a process to make sure we launch every deal we close to our community as efficiently and effectively as possible.
In this role, you will work directly with our business development and marketing leadership to take all the moving parts of a new deal launch from content creation, videos, ads and more and streamline them into one cohesive process. You will work closely with creative content writers, designers, and marketers to manage launches that improve access to the world's best software for entrepreneurs.
Our ideal candidate has 3-5 years of project management experience, knack for building relationships, and being exceptionally detail oriented. In your first six months, success in this role means that you have led the launches of all our new deals and created a process that allows us to launch deals at the highest caliber.
Why You’ll Love It:
If you’re excited by the prospect of working with a talented and cross functional team, developing and prioritizing key projects, creating detailed processes, and forging meaningful relationships with your teammates, then this role is for you.
Why You May Not Like It:
This role is a lot of detail and influence — if you’re intimidated by process, need a lot of direction, or are not detail oriented, this role may not be for you.
Pay & Benefits:
We provide a competitive compensation package. 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 computer, 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 onto the team helps cultivate a culture that we’re proud of.
