About the right team member:

You’re a performance marketer at heart, and you’ve grown acquisitions by creatively pulling direct response levers in multiple acquisition channels. You have a data-driven, customer-centric mindset, which you’ve applied to paid and owned channels, web optimization, referrals, and more. Attribution excites you, and you don’t rest until you have the data in hand to optimize campaigns. When the data isn’t there, you think creatively to develop hypotheses and solve problems. You thrive on driving strategy to execution and can expertly navigate through a project’s ambiguities. You build strong internal and external relationships, able to rally colleagues around ideas while quickly pivoting as business needs evolve. And you roll up your sleeves to develop new skills. Most important, you’re seeking an opportunity that will accelerate your personal and professional development, surrounded by focused, analytical, and compassionate people.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.

  • Blindness
  • Deafness

Reasonable Accommodation Notice

Federal law requires employers to provide reasonable accommodation to qualified individuals with disabilities. Please tell us if you require a reasonable accommodation to apply for a job or to perform your job. Examples of reasonable accommodation include making a change to the application process or work procedures, providing documents in an alternate format, using a sign language interpreter, or using specialized equipment.
