Startup Europe. Grown up reporting
We are looking for an experienced marketeer to join us as our subscription marketing manager to turbocharge our reach; further build out our online presence; and grow and nurture our nascent membership base. As well as having a strong background in digital marketing and in startups, you’ll also have experience of membership or subscription models in a media or content related business.
Sifted is a new media platform reporting on the world of technology and startups in Europe, backed by the Financial Times. In less than two years we’ve become known for our high-quality journalism and fresh viewpoints — and must-read for many founders, investors and people working in startups across the continent.
Our team of reporters, based across Europe, aren’t chasing after the latest funding announcements or product releases; plenty of other sites have got that covered. We are telling the stories that should be told — big startup trends, compelling company profiles and the everyday lessons that come from growing a business and messing up along the way.
We have grown from a standing start to 500k monthly unique visitors, over 80k newsletter subscribers and a lively social media following, but there is much more to be done to both grow and consolidate our readership. In particular we want to build stronger relationships with our most dedicated readers while also diversifying our revenue streams away from our current advertising and sponsorship model.
You will be a key member of the team working directly with the digital marketing manager. You will initially assist with implementing our plans for digital marketing, social media marketing, SEO and partnership channels, to grow our reach, build our brand, promote our fantastic content (both commercial and editorial) and to develop the Sifted membership model. You will be working closely with both the broader commercial team, and the editorial team, including our existing social media journalist.
The role will include:
As Sifted is still a young business, you will have significant say in all aspects of developing and executing our marketing and growth function, including defining the tools that we use, and the processes that we implement.
We have a small-company mindset, but big company goals, and can draw on many of the strengths and benefits of a world-respected brand, the Financial Times. We’re friendly, hardworking and passionate about what we do. We have a flat structure, collaborate across disciplines, and everyone has impact across many areas of the business. We value feedback, honesty and clear communication.
