Why this role is important to FindHotel

We started and grew the company to what it is today thanks to our effective performance marketing efforts, and PPC in its various forms is still a key customer acquisition capability for us. Our goal is to grow our paid search spend by a factor of 2-3X in 2019, and develop beyond core search marketing and into intent display and app store marketing during the year.

What a day in the office might look like

You start the day with a standup where the team discusses what was done yesterday, any obstacles that need to be tackled and the plan for today. Before lunch you analyze the performance of A/B tests that you ran and start documenting your findings. Then you plan a session with our product owner to discuss the value of your findings and how to incorporate them to our campaign building software so that we can roll them out globally. After lunch you work on building and optimizing our Display Remarketing campaigns to enhance the conversion rate and profitability. Then you take a well-deserved break to challenge your colleagues in Foosball, table tennis, or pool. Finally you contact your freelancer team to improve our ad copy and translations.
