Jumpcut is not just another ed tech company - we invest in people’s futures. With over 100 million individuals in America wanting to start their own small businesses, we’re providing a cohesive platform for digital entrepreneurs to actualize their dreams.

We need a highly creative and growth-minded Director of Marketing to take us to $100 million over the next 4 years. This person will own and scale our current user acquisition channels, while leading us into new opportunities to grow our customer reach.
The most important trait we’re looking for is someone who is passionate specifically about user acquisition (e.g. paid advertising), and wants to build a career scaling out a huge team at Jumpcut doing this. The main way that we help our best students from our courses through our Lifetime Fellowship is by running their paid marketing for them. You’re going to be building out that marketing infrastructure so that we can help hundreds of our students scale up their businesses. (Think of it as starting your own advertising agency.).

Who You Are
You sign your name on it - Whatever it is that you’re working on, it should be the highest quality. Everything you create should reflect an extraordinary amount of effort, passion, and thought.You run into the wall - You aim for the difficult first, instead of avoiding it.You welcome bad ideas - We believe in something counterintuitive: good ideas come only from the accumulation of bad ones. The bad ideas spur more bad ideas, which spur slightly better ideas, and from there, sometimes…poof!You’re a barrel - The term “barrel” comes from Keith Rabois, who argued that there are two types of people: bullets and barrels. The ammunition is important, but what’s more important are the people who can aim them correctly.You help others grow - All of us “hold mirrors” up for each other, so that we can both see and fix our flaws. Direct and honest feedback has no equal.
