WHO WE’RE LOOKING FOR

  • Be an expert on social audience performance and testing, i.e. how to reach them and bring them into the acquisition funnel. 
  • Have a deep understanding of creative, what types of ads work, what types of tests to run. Able to provide clear feedback to the creative team to ensure we get differentiated ads that speaks to the brand ethos and illuminates the campaign themes. 
  • Have experience with landing pages, and how to make them convert better. 
  • Report on metrics daily, with clear guidance on what approach to take to hit goals. 
  • Plan a roadmap and implement test for different platforms, ad units, bid types, audiences, landing pages, to improve the efficiency of our efforts
  • Contribute to constantly developing and sophisticating our approach to paid social
  • Develop a strong partnership with our reps at Facebook and the other platforms. 
  • Identify actionable opportunities for growth, as informed by data analysis.

 

EXPERIENCE

  • Understanding of paid social creative best practices, and having an eye for creative quality
  • Bachelor’s degree required

SKILLS AND QUALIFICATIONS

  • You have great communication skills and are able to clearly explain and document plans and results to your team and the wider organization
  • You’re genuinely curious and passionate about marketing and staying current with new ways to reach customers
  • Mastery of paid social platforms and self-serve UIs, including Facebook/Instagram, Tik Tok, Snapchat, Twitter, etc and understanding the nuances of each

ABOUT BARK 


Here at BARK, we love dogs and their people. We’re looking to make all dogs happy throughout the entire world (we’re not kidding). Think Disney for dogs -- we make magic for dogs and their people through our products, events, and experiences.

Our ambition level is high, the opportunity is huge, and our love for dogs is through the roof! We launched in 2011 with BarkBox, a monthly-themed subscription of all-natural treats and clever toys. Since then, we've shipped more than 70 million toys and treats to the dogs across the world and use all of that direct customer feedback to inform new initiatives and ways to make magic between dogs and their people. We’ve since expanded into other offerings as well, as we aim to become THE Dog Company for every family with a four-legged, belly-scratch-loving, interspecies family member.
