Tell me about Yonder

We’re building the financial membership of the future. Starting with a credit card that has fun and experiences at its core, we’re the antithesis to your dad’s stuffy, corporate, boring credit card.

Whilst tech is revolutionising the finance industry, credit is still stuck in the stone ages. We want to create a world where financial services are fair and conscious, and the stress of debt is eliminated for everyone. We're taking a values lead approach to changing credit for everyone, so we recommend you check them out here: Our DNA.

With £20m in seed investment, we’re backed by the best European Seed and Series A investors, early backers of Spotify, Wise, Figma, Revolut and Klarna.

Over the last 18 months, we’ve grown from just an idea to a beautiful, fully regulated credit product that our members absolutely love.

Sounds cool. Tell me about the role.

We’re looking for a Senior Performance Marketing Manager to own and execute our performance marketing strategy. You’ll be our most senior expert in performance marketing. Here's what you'll do:

  • Own, develop and be completely accountable for our performance marketing strategy; optimising existing channels, testing new ones and managing the agencies and freelancers

  • Explore new ways for us to grow through digital channels by launching regular creative and channel experiments, analysing their performance and scaling the ones that work for us.

We’re looking for someone that:

  • 6+ years experience in paid social marketing (required) – You’re an industry-leader in consumer paid social marketing. You’ll evaluate existing channels, setting our strategy, and resourcing your team through freelancers, agencies and in time, in-house team members. We're flexible on most areas of your experience, but not on this. Please only apply if you have this experience.

  • Has proven experience in building out a performance marketing function – you enjoy creating campaigns and creative briefs in the morning, followed by laying the groundwork for our long-term strategy in the afternoon. You'll shape and implement our growth marketing strategy, taking full accountability for the outcomes of our growth marketing efforts.

  • Is obsessed with data and experimentation – This role is deeply analytical. You’ll be guided, informed and measured by the data. You’ll use it to identify opportunities, experiment and A/B test new strategies, then report back on what you learnt.

  • Sets ambitious goals and takes responsibility for their outcomes – You’ll be responsible for launching and iterating on new and existing channels. You recognise growth isn’t just about getting more customers in the door and have a strong understanding of how our full funnel works to drive growth.

What it's like to work at Yonder

We’re based in our Old Street office, complete with a terrace, breakfast, coffee, dogs and plenty of comfortable space to do your best work.

You'll need to come in to the office at least 3 days a week, with everyone coming in on Mondays. You'll love it here if you:

  • Crave autonomy and thrive when given lots of responsibility. This isn’t the kind of role where you’ll be told how to do your job.

  • Enjoy fast-paced environments where things quickly change. This isn’t the kind of role where you’ll spend months on a project that doesn’t see the light of day.

  • Enjoy getting stuck in and contributing to the wider success of the business. This role isn’t just about paid marketing; it’s about helping build a growth function whatever it takes.

  • Want to contribute to positive change in the world. Credit has a bad rap, with its complicated products and greedy incumbents. We’re empowering and rewarding people through intuitive products that are a joy to use.

  • Are excited about working with a ridiculously smart and talented group of people, who’ll push you beyond what most competent people think is possible.

  • Are excited to get back into the weeds – everyone at Yonder does the work. This isn’t just a strategy or management role, you’ll be in the ad platforms, tweaking creative briefs, and evaluating campaigns.

  • Crave a fast-paced environment – we’re a nimble, fast moving startup that punches considerably above our weight. It will be incredibly rewarding, often quite intense, but with considerable financial upside if we get it right. We don’t keep normal 9-5 hours.

Stage 1: Hiring manager call (45 mins)

We'll have an initial call to find out a bit more about one another.

Stage 3: Onsite with the team

  • Marketing review: (60 mins): We’ll dive into your experience in paid social marketing and understand how you’ve approached your work in previous roles, and how you might approach things at Yonder.

We promise to make a decision within 48 hours.
