Job type: Full-time

Hiring from: UK only

Category: Marketing / Sales

Forward Action is looking for a Digital Delivery Officer to join our fast-moving team. You’ll become our go-to expert for setting up mass email sends and Facebook ads, building the promotion campaigns that help our progressive clients hit their goals. You’ll also play a central role in our testing and optimising programme, reporting and analysing A/B test data and taking ownership of our test results library. If you’re passionate about making the world a better place, are excited at the prospect of working on the cutting edge of digital fundraising and campaigning and have excellent attention to detail and an analytical mind, this job is for you.

This is a permanent role, with the freedom to work both in our London office and remotely from anywhere in the UK. You can work either four or five days per week. Applications close Sunday 1 September.

Who we are

Forward Action is a digital movement building agency for progressive causes. We have been in the engine room of some of the most successful election and charity digital campaigns of the last few years, helping our clients add millions of new supporters to their email lists, raise more money online (from more donors) and create campaigns that have led to real-world change.

Our clients are some of the most exciting and impactful organisations in campaigning, including Greenpeace, The Labour Party, Centrepoint, WaterAid, and SumOfUs.

What you’ll do as part of our team

  • Build emails, set up Facebook adverts, and use Typeform to build surveys and prototypes of the engagement tools Forward Action is well known for (like this one)

  • Learn how to use a variety of tools for setting up and analysing digital adverts and email campaigns, including Facebook Ads Manager, Google Adwords, Mailchimp and Engaging Networks

  • Learn how to use tools to report on data from A/B tests, including Google Analytics, Google Data Studio, and Google Spreadsheets

  • Use these tools to gather data on ad campaigns, email campaigns and A/B test results (N.B. you won’t be expected to build tests, just report on their results)

  • Work with our Strategy team to analyse these results, then write up reports for clients and the rest of the Forward Action team

  • Take ownership of our test results library, keeping it up to date with new test results and working out a system for categorising results to make them easy to look up

  • Help other team members out with ad hoc organisational and administrative tasks to support their work (for example, helping out with application admin when we hire for new roles)

  • Liaise with clients via email, Trello and video calls

Benefits and location

  • Pro Rata Salary: £24,839 if you live inside London, £22,177 if you live outside London (with an additional £3,000 per year expense allowance for travel into/accommodation in London for meetings). This is a permanent contract.

  • Location: In our Hoxton London office, with the option to work remotely. Ensuring our team is open to people who live outside London and enabling staff to work flexibly are important values to us, so you’ll have the freedom to work from home regularly. Most of our meetings are done via video conferencing, but you may occasionally need to attend meetings with clients in London – once a month or so, on average.

  • This will be a full time role by default, although we’re happy to discuss four-day-per-week working as part of the interview process.

  • Holiday: 25 days/year, plus bank holidays and the week between Christmas and New Year

Why work at Forward Action?

  • Our values are critical to us: we will only work with causes that make the world a better place. You will get to work with some of the most inspiring and impactful organisations in the sector, and spend your days helping win progress on everything from climate change to clean water.

  • You will be working at the cutting edge of digital campaigning. We recognise that what we do can always be tested and improved, so we constantly pursue innovation. We are an agile, fast-moving team, and you will have the opportunity to rapidly develop and expand your skills and experience.

  • We are an equal opportunity employer and will use an anonymised application procedure to ensure the hiring process for this role is as fair as possible. Our team is open, inclusive, friendly, respectful and kind.

Abilities and experience you’ll need to have

  • Excellent organisation and attention to detail

  • An aptitude for maths and working with numbers

  • Basic HTML knowledge

  • An enquiring and analytical mind, enthusiastic about using data to challenge assumptions

  • Good written and verbal communications skills

  • Comfortable working in a fast-paced environment

  • Enthusiasm for using the internet to help build a fairer, more progressive world

  • Fluency in spoken and written English

  • Above all, we’re looking for a quick learner. We don’t expect you to know or have done everything when you start – instead, we’ll be looking for you to pick up new skills and knowledge quickly, then run with them.

Abilities and experience that are nice to have

We know it’s not possible for any applicants to have all these skills – it’s likely you’ll be able to bring two or three of the following to our team:

  • Intermediate-level Excel/Google Sheets skills

  • Experience setting up Facebook adverts

  • More-than-basic web coding skills

  • Experience building email marketing campaigns

  • A qualification in or experience with statistical analysis

  • Experience working in the charity sector or at an agency

  • Experience of working towards measurable goals as part of a team

  • Experience running or analysing A/B tests or experiments

  • Experience using Google Analytics

    Timeular is looking for a Growth Marketer to join our growth team in scaling our user base.

    We’re looking for someone who treats acquisition as part of the core user experience and therefore is eager to dive deep to find out what our users really need so you can tune every piece of the acquisition and create a smooth and engaging experience starting already from the first touch point.

    Timeular enables people to improve their time management to create more value for themselves and the people around them. Basically, it’s about helping people to focus on the right things, getting rid of distractions and ultimately create more value in less hours, which they hopefully will use to enjoy their life outside of work.

    As we live what we pray we will not ask you to work a crazy amount of hours. In fact, we try hard to protect your time. In return, we ask you to do your best job every day every 40 hour week.

    We are a fully remote team of 16 people working from 5 countries and are between 20 and 40 years old. You can work whenever you want but we’re accepting applications only from people living in a timezone somewhere starting from GMT-4 till GMT+2 (GMT-5 till GMT+1 in winter northern hemisphere).

    About you and this role

    You’ll be responsible to establish new growth loops and improve current ones to scale our Timeular user base in a sustainable and predictable way. While this is a very broad definition of your long-term goal, here is what you can start with until you have enough insights to come up with your own roadmap.

    Improve acquisition conversion rates

    • Dive into our Google Analytics and Mixpanel data together with the retention team to understand even better which customer-behaviour we provide the most value for and where are touchpoints we could acquire more of them.

    • Find, prioritize and run experiments to test your hypothesis for how to improve conversion rates and analyze the outcome. Mainly on our paid ads and on the webshop.

    • Facebook and Google Ads are currently our main acquisition channels. Support your colleagues in creating more efficient creatives and landing pages or to automate spending.

    Align our messaging and content

    • We aim to increase our traffic through helpful content that’s worth to be shared. Help us to build and tune a scalable content growth loop.

    • Find the sweet spot between our users’ voice and our values and make sure all our customer facing communication aligns with that.

    • We didn’t really invest in SEO so far. If you have strong experience there, it’s all yours and ready to go in order to increase our organic traffic.

    Lead people

    • Identify and prioritize the biggest issues we should focus our resources next.

    • Manage the implementation and iteration for solutions you come up with. Write and specify tickets and approve the implementations for release.

    • Help to find and onboard new people so they can do their best work and support them when they need orientation.

    We know you can’t perform at your best from day one because everything is new and there is a lot of information to absorb first. That’s why you’ll get assigned an onboarding buddy right after joining Timeular to assist you while getting started with your new challenges and all the questions you might have along the way.

    About you and our culture

    • As we work remotely, we communicate a lot in written form. To help you demonstrate the strong writing skills you’ll need for this role, we’ve made the first part of this application process a written task.

    • We believe that the most time efficient communication style, whether it’s client-facing or with your team members, is to be direct but respectful. We’re honest and transparent to each other and we support each other. So should you.

    • We work in cycles. We prioritize our top challenges and pitch solutions in a two week pre-cycle and then focus on getting the most promising solutions out within 6 weeks in mixed teams that change at every cycle.

    • We are a virtual team, meaning there is physically no-one around you and you should feel comfortable working like this most of the time. While we do a lot to bring people together it’s unavoidable that loneliness and de-motivation might hit you here and there. We have all been through this and have learned a few things.

    • We respect time because time is the most valuable thing we have: we show up, deliver and communicate in time. We respect everyone’s private time unless there is a real urgency.

    • We say no to distractions and focus on the important things. We seek the minimal path with the highest possible output. We single task our way along that path. We keep meetings efficient. Basically, we focus on focus.

    About the pay and benefits

    • We’re still at the beginning of our journey and therefore can’t afford to pay huge salaries; however we manage that with other benefits, which are mostly about helping you to live a healthy life outside of work.

    • The transparent salary for this role at hiring ranges between $40,000 and $80,000, depending on several factors like the country you’re in (taxes, living costs etc…) and your experience. After one year of working full-time at Timeular you can participate in the employee stock option pool.

    The benefits we offer are:

    • Work where, when and how you want as long it is in GMT-4 to GMT+2 (GMT-5 till GMT+1 in winter northern hemisphere).

    • 50 days of paid holidays (including national holidays) because we’ve learned that time off is the best source for great ideas.

    • Three paid team retreats per year to spend an incredible time together discovering unique locations and amazing food. All costs covered.

    • Paid parental leave and a couple more benefits

  • We're looking for a Growth Marketer who is hands-on, social, and thrives in a data-informed, vision-driven environment. You will help us bridge the community and developers with Aragon's products and brand. Our Growth Marketer should have a passion for connecting and networking with the open source community.


    • Grow the scale of the Aragon brand through different online and offline channels.

    • Plan, test, track, and optimize growth tactics and metrics for user acquisition and retention.

    • Prepare and coordinate press releases, announcements, and other news with media and third-party partners.

    • Propose and translate creative ideas to boost community engagement and attract product demand and find product-market-fit.

    • Brainstorm, test and implement viral marketing tactics with experimental or template DAOs and other concepts to attract product demand and find product-market-fit.


    • Deep understanding of digital marketing analytics, creative and media tactics and best practices.

    • Strategic mindset and ability to execute quickly.

    • Very good written and spoken communication skills in English.

    • Being highly organized, analytical, and detail oriented.

    • Being passionate about open source and decentralization.

    • Being an autonomous individual with a proactive attitude and a love for time self-management. We work focus-driven, not hours-driven.

    Nice to have

    • Previous experience contributing or managing open source projects.

    • Previous experience working remotely.
