If your application seems like a good fit for this position, we will contact you in order to schedule a phone interview.

About the right team member:

You’re a performance marketer at heart and get psyched about new ways to introduce people to products that can help them live better. You know how to build relationships and negotiate with affiliate partners in order to drive meaningful customer growth with positive ROI. You have a deeply data-driven, systematic, and creative mindset, which you’ve applied to successfully optimize affiliate marketing portfolios and programs. Attribution and modeling excites you, and you don’t rest until you can tell thoughtful data stories to evolve your execution strategies. Data not immediately available? No problem! You think creatively to develop frameworks to assess both effectiveness and opportunity. 

At Betterment you will get to:

  • Drive Betterment’s performance-based affiliate program by growing existing relationships and identifying new partner and format opportunities in order to acquire high-quality customers 
  • Optimize program structure and efficiency through routine ROI analysis and partner negotiations
  • Own campaigns end to end: offer development, content update communications and compliance due diligence, platform manager (e.g., Impact Radius) management, analytics, reporting
  • Embody our test and learn mentality by developing tests and iterating on learnings in-program and across channels
  • Partner with internal teams and stakeholders (product, data engineering, analytics, legal and compliance, etc) to operationalize channel growth  

You will be effective if you have:

  • 2-4 years of affiliate program management and 4+ years of total work experience in a data-driven acquisition marketing role at a fast-paced workplace (brand or agency)
  • Direct hands-on experience with affiliate partnership platforms such as Impact Radius
  • Robust understanding of quantitative concepts around driving and measuring performance and ROI
  • Demonstrated ability to analyze data from various reporting models (attribution, platform, proprietary, etc) in order to draw insights and steer optimizations and testing
  • Experience working in an integrated digital marketing team, bonus points for hands-on experience managing other acquisition channels
  • Self-starter approach to work, with drive to consistently exceed objectives and take on more responsibility
  • Passion for disrupting an industry and being part of a team directly responsible for growing the customer base
