We partner with many well-known brands such as Facebook, Google, and Mailchimp, integrating their services with WooCommerce to provide all the tools businesses need to run and grow their online stores. In this role, you’ll own and manage how these integrations are promoted to WooCommerce customers via our partner marketing program.

The program uses a mix of our owned channels (e.g., woocommerce.com, email, in-product notifications), and forms the basis for marketing commitments attached to each partner agreement negotiated by our business development team. You’ll lead the program, coordinating with channel specialists within the marketing team to execute on commitments.

  • Project management, coordinating with our channel specialists.
  • Post-campaign reporting and analysis
  • Liaise with partners to cultivate strong relationships and a spirit of collaboration.
