We are based in downtown LA. Our mission, our enormous market potential, our team and the technology challenges we are solving make HopSkipDrive one of LA?s hottest startups and an all-around awesome place to work.

Who you are

You will report to the Vice President of Growth and work across multiple teams, partnering with Marketplace Operations, Product, Business Intelligence and Engineering to develop, test, and optimize new and existing channels to drive CareDriver acquisition across all geographic markets.

You are equal parts growth marketer, analyst, and business strategist.

  • Work cross-functionally with CareDriver operations, product, engineering, business intelligence, and finance to create new, more sophisticated strategies for growth

  • Establish performance benchmarks and KPIs for all campaigns and work with BI team to ensure reporting requirements and dashboards are set-up prior to campaign launches and media tests

  • Manage and drive third-party agencies, ad networks, other service providers and vendors in the debriefing and execution of media strategies.

  • Monitor the competitive landscape and identify opportunities to grow and gain market share.

Your Qualifications

  • Structured thinking and ability to solve complex problems

  • Experience working cross-functionally: including Product, Data Science and Engineering

  • Expert at project management, able to independently manage multiple projects at various stages at one time

  • Bachelor?s degree in a quantitative field
