Job Description

ConvertKit is a powerful marketing platform built for creators, by creators. We help creators grow and monetize their audience with ease. For coaches, YouTubers, authors, podcasters, and other creatives, there isn’t a better marketing hub to rely on to grow audiences, automate email marketing, and sell digital products – all within one platform. More importantly, there isn’t a team more committed to helping creators earn a living.

We’re on a mission to help creators earn $1 billion using our creator marketing platform. We have always been 100% independent and 100% remote. We are proud to have built a product that our customers love, and we look for people who have enthusiasm and belief in our mission, vision, and values to join our team.

The ConvertKit culture is one where emotional intelligence is valued, radical candor is encouraged, and where everyone works together to uphold a set of shared team principles.

  • Collaborate with support teams to address critical issues promptly.
  • Coordinate and improve implementation processes for smooth onboarding of creators onto our platform.
  • Participate in department initiatives, provide product feedback, and contribute to pilot programs.

  • Strong understanding of the email/newsletter landscape.
  • Have a collaborative approach to working with stakeholders across the business.
  • Exceptional visual, written, and spoken communication, and presentation skills.
  • Analytical mindset to evaluate performance and business impact.

  • Have enthusiasm for and belief in our mission, vision, and values.
  • Attend our bi-annual company retreats
