At Lost My Name, we're making the most technically ambitious physical books ever invented. We’re making storybooks magical for a new generation by creating impossible stories on a timeless medium, like a story that is created entirely out of a child’s name or making a book with NASA images and the world's first book that shows your own neighbourhood, your own street, your own house(!) in a book made especially for you. Oh, and speaking of NASA, we’d like to take this opportunity to brag that Tim Peake read Our Incredible Intergalactic Journey Home in actual space.
We think-up, write, illustrate, build, design, and sell all of our products directly, and have a team working to produce our wonderful products spanning from Art Directors to Dev Ops. We have sold more than 2.5 million books, games and posters in over 200 countries, and we’re just getting started! With the work you’ll do here with us, we’d like to think we’re on track towards becoming the UK’s most admired creative company.
We’re looking for a enthusiastic and detail orientated person to join the performance marketing team at one of the UK’s most exciting startups. The role offers the opportunity to work on growing an advertising channel that has significant impact on the business, and presents a huge opportunity for the person up to the task.
We’re looking for the kind of person who is comfortable managing their own time, able to effectively prioritise work, and recognise problems and opportunities to seek support as necessary.
Full time digital marketing experience isn’t 100% necessary, but we have a few key requirements. Strong written and verbal communication skills are a requisite, as well as confidence in dealing with people at a range of different levels. You’re going to be optimising campaigns based on data; so being comfortable with complicated numeracy and spreadsheetery is a must. If you’re familiar with code based languages like HTML and SQL it should really help you get into the groove. It doesn’t hurt to have some pre-existing knowledge of how digital marketing for e-commerce works too.
To underline the above, we’re looking for somebody with proven credentials in the world of work or with a strong academic background (remember, geek is good!), and therefore expect candidates to have a 2:1 degree or similar/better.
We’ve sold millions of products to children all over the world, and this reflects in our campaign coverage. If you have a knack for languages or know a second language in it’s entirety (except perhaps Latin or Klingon), it’s a HUGE plus.
What you'll be doing
- Day to day bid and campaign optimisation of our Bing and Adwords campaigns
- Keyword research, ad copywriting & performance tests
- Work closely with our BI team to drive weekly reporting & analysis of campaign performance against company KPIs
- Data driven tests of acquisition and retention campaigns using existing customer data
- You’ll also be part of the on-boarding and company wide education of some incredible new ad tech which will provide invaluable experience.
Why join Lost My Name
- You’ll get a sweet, SWEET training budget. £1k to attend whichever conference or training you’d like, wherever you like. Or you could learn some Spanish in Dalston, it's your call.
- We offer Yoga class every Monday night; just one of the many ways we keep centred and calm, despite the (occasional) chaos of startup life.
- We also have massages if yoga isn’t your thing, for everyone who wants one on Fridays. If you like neither yoga, nor massages (hey, they aren’t for everyone) we also offer mental health support through Sanctus, where you can speak to a wellness coach about how you’re doing.
- We have an office Sauna.
- We also provide a private healthcare plan, a pension plan and childcare vouchers (according to your plans) to show you we care.
- We have heaps of snacks. Like, so many snacks. And you can always suggest your favourite new ones to be added to our shopping trolley.
- Speaking of food: Team lunches. We nearly forgot team lunches. Every Thursday our Studio Manager, Shim, orders some super delish food from somewhere in London and we gorge ourselves. It sounds intense, but it's actually quite chill.
- Our office is full of puppies.
