Our global headquarters are in Seattle, Washington in the United States, working closely with our teams in Spokane, Berlin, London, and Barcelona. We have a track record of being recognized as a great place to work, having been named among Seattle's 'Best Places to Work' in Seattle Business Magazine and the Puget Sound Business Journal for three years running.

Our pioneering approach to people and pups alike landed us on the list of GeekWire’s Next Tech Titan in 2019 and the World's Most Innovative Companies in 2018 by Fast Company. Needless to say (but we're going to say it anyway)—we love dogs, and we wouldn't dream of going to work without them by our sides.

Who we are looking for:
You’re a get-your-hands-dirty marketer operator who is up to the task of managing our largest supply acquisition channels. You’re obsessed with delivering measurable results in a fast-paced environment, you thrive in data analysis, testing, optimization techniques, and staying organized.

Because results are everything to you, you constantly leverage data and experimentation to maximize the impact and efficiency of your budget and acquisition channels. ROI analyses are second nature to you. You’re curious about new ways to reach prospective customers and like keeping up with industry trends to see if you can incorporate them into your own strategies. You possess strong marketing instincts and confirm your instincts with data. You love diving in the weeds executing campaigns and nerding out in Excel, but you also enjoy taking a step back to consider how your strategies and tactics fit together and with broader organization priorities. Finally, you love creating processes to help make you and the team more effective, but you are open and agile enough to adapt them when presented with new information or priorities.
