New Vertical App Brand Lead
Chicago, Illinois, US /
Affinity – Marketing & PR /
We’re seeking a Brand Lead for a new vertical app within the Affinity team at Match Group. The ideal candidate will be a passionate, creative and a strategic thinker who lives and breathes multicultural marketing with a focus on the Asian-American demographic. In this fast-paced, high impact role, you will help us build marketing strategy and tactics for a new app.
Know where you belong.
Affinity is a division of Match Group that is home to online dating apps like BLK, Chispa, and Upward where singles can connect based on what they have in common. Creating a sense of belonging doesn’t stop at our platforms - it’s the foundation of every team we hire.
When it comes to dating, the connection starts online, but the real magic happens once you meet in real life (IRL). We think the same is true for creating the best platforms, so our Affinity teams meet IRL monthly in Dallas.
How you’ll make an impact:
- Driving strategic insights and knowledge about the Asian American community and dating preferences
- Analyzing consumer insights and crafting plans and differentiation strategies across various marketing channels for the new brand
- Assessing performance of brand efforts/campaigns and identifying new community-relevant opportunities/partnerships for building brand awareness
- Beginning-to-end partnership with the brand & product teams as we develop and elevate the new brand throughout all touch-points, including advertising, research and in-app experiences
- Driving the social media strategy, including channel + content strategy and brand voice, to create brand awareness and drive app downloads
- Supporting influencer marketing strategy and execution
We could be a match if:
- You have a passion for the Asian American Community
- You have at least 4+ years of marketing/strategy experience, preferably for consumer mobile apps and/or consumer startups; agency experience is a plus!
- You have a desire to build, make connections and are a social person
- You have analytical prowess and curiosity for understanding performance metrics and reporting
- You have experience managing social media (Facebook, Instagram, TikTok and Snapchat) for a brand, including developing strategy, creative, building a community, and growing the channels through word of mouth
- You have experience leading influencer marketing programs
