Shop Like You Give a Damn is looking for a Head of Growth

Stephan Stephan 10 Jun 2021 Shop Like You Give a Damn is looking for a Head of Growth

Do you love everything digital? Is data your favourite vegan breakfast? Are you familiar with all the different ways one can generate traffic? Then we might have the job for you.

We are looking for a digital marketer, a head of growth, a marketing magician, someone whose purpose is to generate heaps of traffic to our ethical marketplace. 

Having experience with organic search, paid search, social, affiliate, display and a variety of tools to manage those channels is a very very big plus as you’ll be managing them all.

Of course, we understand that every channel can be a full-time job on its own, so we’re not looking for you to be an expert on every channel, but knowing a few like the back of your hand, understanding basic ROI/ROAS logic, knowing your way around Google Analytics and being able to manage multiple projects with ease, goes a long way.

Do you feel we were just describing you? Please read along!

 

Who are we?

Welcome to Shop Like You Give a Damn, the largest 100% vegan, fair and sustainable online department store in Europe. Our marketplace offers a collection of ethical clothing, bags, shoes, accessories, homeware, makeup and care products for essentially everyone, from hundreds of ethical brands and sellers.

Shop Like You Give a Damn was founded by Stephan, Kim and Alex: three enthusiasts who want to turn the shopping world upside down with their vegan start-up, now a seventeen-person team, great plans and a healthy dose of impatience. We always say: shop with compassion. As little as possible. But when you do buy something, make it a vegan, fair and sustainable purchase. That is kind to all beings on earth. Kind to our fellow animals, to our fellow people, to all future generations.

Our mission is to make compassion and sustainability the new normal, by making ethical and mindful shopping really easy for everyone. That’s why we founded the largest online vegan department store for fair and sustainable products in Europe. For those who give a damn.

What are you going to do?

The steps we are taking towards the world we dream of could be even bigger. You’ll be joining the team as a general digital marketer. Someone who’ll be in charge of managing and running campaigns on all channels. 
You’ll be working closely with our CEO Stephan, someone who has over 18 years of experience in digital and will be your partner in anti-crime. 

So what are we talking about when we say managing and running campaigns?

  • Optimising our Google Shopping campaigns
  • Setting up and optimising Google Search campaigns
  • Optimising our social retargeting campaigns
  • Setting up an international affiliate marketing programme
  • Working together with our sellers on joint campaigns
  • Looking for partnerships with publishers
  • Being the point person on our comprehensive SEO project
  • Doing data deep dives to find impactful insights

As you can see, the job entails a lot of managing stuff. Indeed, we could’ve called this vacancy Digital Marketing Manager, but that would be describing the means, not the goal. Strong project management skills will be very useful in this position though. 

And don’t worry, we won’t ask you to do everything all at once as that would be impossible. We’ll prioritise together to ensure maximum impact.

And who are you?

You are not afraid to work independently, you are proactive, you get things done and can’t wait to put your ideas to the test. Data is your friend.

We are a small team with plenty of great ideas and not enough time to implement them all. But we’re still working day and night to make our department store the platform for fair, environmentally friendlier and 100% vegan fashion and cosmetics in the world. 

Of course, we won't ask you to work 24/7, but like all other jobs with us, this position does require a certain type of personality and passion-driven attitude to really make an impact on the world with us. 

We think that the following set of traits, interests and experience will be the best match:

  • You have a few years of digital marketing experience.
  • You are proactive and love to take initiative.
  • You live in or nearby Amsterdam or are okay with remote working from somewhere else in the world.
  • You have a high verbal proficiency in English. Speaking Dutch is a plus.
  • You love data and analysis.
  • You are always learning, unlearning and relearning.
  • You have epic (project) management skills.
  • You share our mission of making compassion and sustainability the new normal. You are (on your way to becoming) a vegan and have a passion for a vegan, fair & sustainable lifestyle.
  • You will be available for 32 - 40 hours per week.
  • You cannot wait to roll up your sleeves and start generating heaps of traffic!

What do we offer?

  • Be responsible for the growth of a global marketplace that has an ethical compass and sails a commercial course.
  • The opportunity to make a real impact WITH and IN our startup and determine its future course with us.
  • Collaborate with an enthusiastic and incredible team of mission-aligned people.
  • Working in our Amsterdam office, but also flexible working wherever and whenever you want.
  • A wonderfully relaxed and fun startup culture where you won't be afraid to ask and discuss anything.
  • Vegan treats whenever we have (some/no)thing to celebrate.
  • Table tennis battles with Bart and Alex, and occasionally other teammates.
  • A suitable startup salary with Stock Appreciation Rights (SARs).
