Senior Partner Marketer, WooCommerce-Automattic

September 1, 2021
Urgent

Job Description

WooCommerce is the most popular eCommerce platform on the web, an open-source solution that allows users to customize every part of an online store. We partner with many well-known brands such as GoogleMailchimp, Pinterest, Stripe and PayPal, integrating their services with WooCommerce to provide all the tools businesses need to run and grow their online stores. 

This is an exciting time to join WooCommerce to help shape the future of commerce. As a Senior Partner Marketing Manager, you’ll be the bridge between our technology partners, business development, marketing and the rest of WooCommerce.

In this role, you’ll own and manage how these partners are promoted to WooCommerce customers using a mix of our owned channels (e.g., woocommerce.com, email, in-product notifications). You’ll lead the program, coordinating with channel specialists within the marketing team to execute on commitments. You will work directly with top tier partners to build relationships, define and execute on mutual growth goals, and collaborate on new co-marketing initiatives.

We have a huge footprint, but we’re a small company. That means everyone here has the opportunity to make a visible, profound, and lasting difference while helping the store owners that rely on WooCommerce everyday.

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Work on our partner marketing program, including:
    • Ensuring strategic alignment with the broader business goals.
    • Optimizing the program to improve partner revenue.
    • Refining and articulating the value proposition.
  • Collaborate with our business development team to negotiate contractual marketing obligations with our partners, demonstrating the value that we bring to the table.
  • Keep an eye on the bigger picture to ensure that campaigns are not in conflict with our interests, or obligations to other partners within Automattic.
  • Coordinate and oversee all partner marketing campaigns end-to-end, ensuring that all requirements and deadlines are met, including:
    • Setting the right strategy and goals in consultation with partners.
    • Project management, coordinating with our channel specialists.
    • Post-campaign reporting and analysis.
  • Liaise with partners to cultivate strong relationships and a spirit of collaboration.
  • Proactively seek out opportunities for reciprocal marketing from our partners.

YOU:

  • Have experience working directly with partners or clients to execute and craft the strategy and messaging behind multi-channel digital marketing campaigns.
  • Have a results-orientated, analytical approach to marketing.
  • Possess a comprehensive understanding of web analytics and digital marketing channels (email marketing, display advertising, paid search, and content marketing) and would be comfortable interpreting and analyzing results from campaigns.
  • Are an excellent negotiator.
  • Are a highly proficient multitasker, strong in both strategy and execution.
  • Have extensive experience managing projects and collaborating cross-functionally.
  • Love bringing order to chaos: crafting structure and building processes.
