    Nathan James is looking for a Digital Marketing Specialist to join our team and support the sales organization through the strategic and data-driven acquisition of qualified traffic.

    We are a design-first, home furnishing company focusing on the habits of urban dwellers and first time home buyers. We pride ourselves on the best in class customer happiness, providing the highest possible quality products that are affordable for the majority and assembly that isn’t dreadful

    This role reports to the Director of Digital Marketing and is responsible for the execution of our paid media and customer acquisition strategy. You will be running advertising campaigns on Amazon, Wayfair, Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram, and Google. You will build and manage campaigns; perform keyword, audience, and conversion rate analysis in order to optimize our budgets, bids, ad placements, ad unit types, and CPC’s; you will report monthly on performance relative to stated KPI’s, and your ultimate goal is to grow sales and lower customer acquisition costs. 

    This role requires 2-3 years of experience buying media and running paid traffic for an Ecommerce retailer, a brand or a digital marketing agency. Additionally, you must have recent experience running ads on Amazon’s platform, preferably from the Vendor side (AMS). It is recommended, but not required, that you have previous experience building and running paid campaigns on Facebook and Google.

You are savvy when it comes to web-based technologies, you are organized and understand how to prioritize your work and your time.

While you have the freedom to work remotely and control your daily schedule, with that, comes a level of maturity, internal awareness and self-driven motivation that is required to be successful in a remote environment. While it is not required to have previous remote work experience, it will be a criterion for consideration. 

    You will have a minimum of 2-3 years of experience in an SEM or related paid media / customer acquisition position. You may have a degree or you might not. That’s not what we’re looking for. We care about what you can do and how you do it. 

    BENEFITS & PERKS:

    We’re all about reasonable working hours, sharing, ample vacation time, wellness, education, comfort, and giving back. See our benefits and perks here

    HOW TO APPLY:

    Please submit an application here that speaks directly to this position here .

    There are no right answers or cookie-cutter expectations. A cover letter is not required, but those that clearly demonstrate how Nathan James would be a great fit for you and how you would be a great fit for us will be given full attention and are highly appreciated. 

    We’re accepting applications until 2/28/2020 00:00:00 UTC. 

    Next: We expect to take three to five days to review all applications. 

    You’ll hear from us by 2/29/2020 about advancement to a work sample. You will first be given a small work sample that validates your capabilities with the relevant role requirements and provides you some insight into the type of problems you will be working on. Then on to an interview. Our interviews are one hour to 1.5 hours all remote by Whereby video chat (no software needed), with your future colleagues, on your schedule.  

    We aim to make an offer by 3/13/2020 at the latest with a start date in late March.

    We appreciate your consideration in having Nathan James be part of your career. Our open conversation starts with this post. We look forward to hearing from you.
