Director of User Acquisition

| Hollywood

What the job entails:

Do you like poop? Of course you don’t. But apparently, many people do. This is exemplified by two of the most viral internet ads of our generation: Poo-pourri and Squatty Potty (look it up).

Jumpcut is an education company that sells online courses. We make most of our money through paid acquisition -- that means we spend between $500,000 to $1M a month on social media sites like YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and Snapchat on funny, viral advertisements like this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-H-H3l3v-gE&feature=youtu.be

We are looking for someone who is clever, creative, and analytical to be our Director of User Acquisition and to create similar advertising experiences for our potential customers. Your responsibilities will be centered around the creation of ads (text, image, and video) that convert to sales and -- more importantly -- have the potential to go viral. You'll be managing this entire process: experimenting with new creatives we want to test, managing our creative team to get those assets out, and working with our operations and analytics team to release those ads and then iterate on them.

We’re currently operating mostly on YouTube and Facebook, but we’ll need your help in expanding to other platforms as well. You'll also be managing a creative marketing team (producer, video editor, motion graphics artist, marketing designer, etc). Some of these positions we already have in-house, and some you will have to recruit/hire yourself.

As the Director of User Acquisition, you'll have one of the most important leadership jobs at Jumpcut, as most of our revenue comes from converting cold traffic into leads.


Who you'll be working with:

This job will report directly to our CEO, Kong. In 2018, Kong and Peter (COO) have been the main people responsible for our advertising efforts on YouTube and Facebook, and you'll be working with them directly. Moreover, we have a remote team of five advertising analysts that do the day to day work on the platforms that you will immediately start managing on the first day.



You will increase ad spend by 20% every quarter.

You will maintain an average of at least 4x ROAS on each platform we advertise on.


Technical requirements we're looking for:

  • At least 2 years experience on paid acquisition with a consumer-facing product
  • Deep knowledge of Facebook Ads or Google Ads, and management of 6 to 7-figure monthly budgets
  • Nice to have: Knowledge on other paid acquisition platforms (e.g. other social media or display networks)


Non-Technical requirements we're looking for:

  • Obsession with marketing and virality
  • Ability to think outside the box and come up with 10x ideas
  • Analytical skills and understanding of fundamental statistics to make data-driven decisions
  • Ability to find and recruit world class talent
  • Ability (or potential) to manage a team


Benefits, Perks, and Compensation:

We’ve got some pretty sweet digs, catered meals, unlimited PTO, and a full suite of benefits. Check out jumpcut.com/about for more information and to meet the team!

Compensation is competitive, and dependent on experience: $130k – $175k Annually

An Insider's view of Jumpcut

How does your team reward individual success?

Whether reward comes through bonuses, trophies at our all hands meetings or just a simple “great job” on Slack, my success is viewed as Jumpcut’s success. That’s never been unclear at a company that values “Helping People Grow”. It’s hard not to be thankful and even harder to not give my very best.



What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

At Jumpcut, our mission is to help our students learn valuable skills. Education is a tricky area because everyone is so different in the way they learn and absorb information. Our biggest challenge is building a flexible online educational platform that works for every single kind of student out there, no matter your background or learning style.


Product Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

I joined Jumpcut 10 mos. ago as a Customer Service intern - now I direct the entire CS team and am building our recruiting team, all while knowing that if I wanted to join a different department to learn new things, I'd be fully supported.

Point being: Jumpcut isn't kidding around when they say one of their core values is to "help people grow".


Customer Success Director

What are some things you learned at the company?

I originally was hired as a junior copywriter. I literally started out writing content emails. It's pretty crazy but over the course of 2 or 3 years, I ended up learning how to do product launches and learning how to put together marketing funnels that have made millions of dollars. It still sounds crazy to me.
