Everyone deserves a job they love. Makers Academy retrains career-changers as software developers and helps them find that job.
You deserve a job you love. We’ve got one for you:
Makers Academy is expanding fast, adding new products and working with employers at a much larger scale. To support that growth, we’re re-launching our website on a more collaborative platform, and bringing all our marketing tools into one system.
We need your help to improve clarity and control over the systems we use to attract both B2C and B2B customers, so that we can support a broader range of people into exciting careers in software development.
You’ll be our go-to person for everything related to marketing technology: tracking and tweaking the performance of our digital channels, optimising our website content and user flows, and implementing new marketing software to replace the many interconnected systems we use now.
You’ll have the freedom to act in a way that you believe is right for the company. You’ll have a genuine say in the way the business is run, and the environment in which you work. You’ll be encouraged to identify problems and solve them; and to seek out new opportunities and pursue them. In short, you'll have a voice that will be heard and valued.
Success in this role looks like:
Consolidating our marketing tools and establishing our central marketing technology;
Growing our marketing funnels, for both B2B and B2C;
Optimising our digital marketing channels for lead generation;
Providing detailed and comprehensive reporting on our marketing channels and their performance, for the whole marketing team to act on;
Raising brand awareness, by managing our brand online and through digital campaigns;
Improving the usability and conversion rates of our website;
Effectively managing the digital marketing budget.
Typical things you’ll be doing day to day:
Managing the relationship with our digital agency, responsible for paid advertising;
Responsible for the ongoing management and improvement of our website, including SEO;
Designing and maintaining landing pages, emails and distribution of digital content;
Developing and managing digital marketing campaigns, across all our digital channels;
Tracking and reporting on channel performance;
A/B testing, tracking and designing user flows;
Evaluating customer research, market conditions and competitor data;
Reviewing new technologies and keeping the company at the forefront of developments in digital marketing.
What you can expect to achieve in your first six months:
Brought all marketing tech under one roof for both B2B and B2C (forms, emails, lists, nurture workflows, landing pages);
Implemented (data-driven) improvements to our marketing processes that help us to scale.
Working in a company that’s exploring how alternative management systems can help us achieve our ambitions;
Growing as a person, by learning radical transparency, vulnerability, the growth mindset, emotional intelligence, 'non-violent communication’, perhaps some hard truths about yourself, and how to give and receive feedback honestly and productively;
Able to join yoga and meditation sessions run for the students;
A Perkbox account, including significant discounts on products, experiences and things like gym membership;
Being surrounded by a diverse group of bright, motivated people, who all really care about doing the very best they can for our students, for our hiring partners and for each other.
Location: Our academy in Spitalfields, London.
Salary: We’ll offer in the region of £35,000, depending on previous (relevant) experience. After a year in the role, you'll be encouraged to set your own salary at least once a year (how do I set my own salary?).
Holiday: We have a minimum holiday policy, rather than a maximum - you must take at least 28 days a year.
Management: Makers Academy is a company built on trust, rather than fear: you’re trusted to make good decisions on behalf of the business (which includes how, when and where you work).
Apply with just a cover letter before 17:00 on Wednesday 25 April;
Answer some role-specific situational questions before 09:00 on Friday 27 April;
We’ll review completed applications only, and then get back to everyone who applied either with feedback about your application or an invitation to interview;
- Interviews will take place during the week of 30 April to 4 May and we intend to make a decision very soon after.
