Acquisition Marketing Manager



We’re looking for THE marketer

Trussle is the UK’s first online mortgage broker and launched with the mission of helping buyers and homeowners save time and money securing a mortgage online.

We recently closed a £4.5m Series A funding round and have been growing at pace from partnerships with companies such as Zoopla, uSwitch and Noddle. With these things firmly in place, we want to start giving some more focused attention to the wonderful world of online and offline direct marketing...for that we need your help

About the role

This is a role for someone who sees marketing as a science as much as an art. We have CPL targets to work to and hate to waste money so there is a need to apply the method of hypothesis- > test -> learn -> iterate/improve across everything we do and every penny we spend.

This role will be central in defining and executing the Trussle acquisition marketing strategy and will involve:

  • Responsibility for all digital marketing channels

  • Budget and autonomy to run regular ATL marketing tests

  • Working closely with brand and design to create the best campaigns possible

  • Working closely with data/BI to ensure we are monitoring performance

  • Performance analysis and reporting

This is a great opportunity to join a ground-breaking PropTech startup (voted PropTech Startup of The Year at the Elevator Pitch LIVE Awards 2016!) and contribute to its success, as well as learning new skills from an awesome team of people. As an early member of our Growth team, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to progress and define your own role and specialism as the team grows.

About you

A candidate who has had broad experience with, and exposure to, diverse marketing channels and means of acquisition, is flexible enough to build digital marketing accounts one day and help set up a billboard campaign the next.

You will need to have an eye for brand as well as the technical ability to collect and interrogate data to test hypotheses and refine propositions.

You’ll have the following traits:

  • A great communicator, and have no difficulty explaining complex things clearly and concisely to a range of people

  • Bold- you will need to proactively find and take punts on new channels

  • Tenacious- getting to an acceptable and manageable CPL from direct isn’t easy and will require iterations and

  • Attribution modelling experience

  • Comfortable with standard industry tools. Adwords, Mixpanel etc

  • Strong quant skills. Advanced Excel

  • An eagerness to learn everything you can about an exciting tech product

  • Ideally some start-up experience but with good technical grounding/fundamentals from either big company training or strong mentorship.

  • A keen eye for detail

  • Keeping a level head under pressure. We’re a small team doing very big things, and that means moving (uncomfortably) fast sometimes
