Ergatta is seeking a Director of Retention to lead member engagement strategy!


Ergatta is a fitness tech startup that is creating a new consumer category: game-based home cardio equipment. The first of these is the Ergatta Rower, which provides a challenging, competitive, full-body digital fitness experience centered around an indoor rowing machine. As fitness activity shifts into the home—rapidly accelerated by COVID-19— we believe the big winners will be those that innovate around what is on screen. Our gaming-inspired content provides a fundamentally new and different consumer experience, radically different from the class-based model.

Ergatta closed a seed round of funding in July 2020 led by Greycroft Partners, with participation by Techstars, Mark Pincus (Zynga), Chamillionaire, and others. We are approaching another period of rapid growth at Ergatta, and are looking for someone to help accelerate the growth and development of our member engagement strategy. As the lead architect and quarterback of our retention marketing program, you will be responsible for developing an engagement strategy that drives product usage, referrals, and community participation.

To be successful, you should be experienced in leveraging email, SMS, push notifications and other channels to drive member action. You should be able to collaborate with cross-functional teams and be a strategic problem-solver. You should be member-focused (or rather, obsessed!) and determined to create experiences and campaigns that drive affinity, loyalty and evangelism amongst our base.
