What the job entails:

Do you love playing statistical games with large sums of money? If the sound of this makes you drool...keep reading.

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're doing pretty well. For every $1 we spend, we bring in $4 in revenue. The reason why we're doing well is because we have great ads. But equally important is the fact that we optimize the hell out of those ads. We're constantly testing different hypotheses (do niche ads work, or general ads? do we target audiences at the ad group, or campaign level? do we put a frequency cap on our ads to smooth out spend, or let it spike at the beginning of each month? when do we use CPL versus CPV campaigns?) that help us get better and better over time.

If you're currently a business analyst, data scientist, data analyst, statistician, management consultant, investment banker, or all around data superstar, looking to grow in your career and lead an entire marketing analytics team, this is the perfect position.

Jumpcut is a profitable, Y-Combinator backed company, looking for our first analyst hire. You'll come on to lead this team, grow the team, and grow our revenue from 2-3x in 2019, from $10M+ to $30M+.

Right now, we're also bringing on a director of user acquisition that will deal primarily with the creative side. You'll be working with them -- they'll be the creative, and you'll be the analytical.

While much preferred, we do NOT require significant paid advertising experience -- we've found that if you're smart and curious, have a head for analytics, and can think strategically, you'll be a great fit for the job. If you're hired here, we'll spend the first month teaching you everything we know about paid acquisition, and then you'll take it over from there.


Who you'll be working with:

This job will report directly to our CEO, Kong. We currently don't have a marketing analytics team; 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 start managing eventually.



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 that we're looking for:

  • At least one year of experience in statistical or data heavy role at an online-first technology company, management consulting company, or investment bank


Non-technical requirements that we're looking for:

  • Able to find the signal in the noise
  • Can not only extract data from large data sets, but is able to strategically evaluate the data to come up with action recommendations
  • Understands how hypothesis-driven testing works, and can design a process around it
  • Creative analytically, and can tease out insights from a data set that other people might not know how to approach
  • Able to train others to think strategically and analytically


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: $70k – $90k 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.
