Paid Marketing Manager

Redwood City, CA
Wealthfront is looking for a creative, strategic marketer to help build and manage our core paid advertising channels. Our mission is to deliver sophisticated financial advice to everyone. We offer free, comprehensive financial planning through our app, as well low-cost, easy and fully automated investing to help our clients achieve long-term goals. Our audience is young (hello, millennials!), smart, and motivated, and we’re passionate about helping them achieve financial freedom on their own terms.

We’re looking for an innovative paid marketing strategist who can help us build scalable ways of engaging our target audience. Your campaigns will differentiate Wealthfront from the rest of the industry and create interest and urgency around fully-automated money management. You will help grow our business by scaling paid marketing efficiently and sustainably. Not only are LTV:CAC ratios your bread and butter, but you also understand how branded content, the right affiliate partners, and engaging social media campaigns all influence consumer decision-making. In addition to growth, your paid campaigns will help us test new messaging, find product-market fit for a host of new 2019 products, and promote our content on both owned and partner channels. You’ll flex your creative and analytical muscles every day in partnership with product and content marketers, designers, and copywriters. And you’ll closely partner with Marketing Analytics to design an experimentation program that ensures we can maximize the value of every dollar spent.
