“Marketing without data is like driving with your eyes closed.”
Jumpcut is a Y Combinator and venture-backed startup that creates cinematic online courses with the world’s biggest influencers.
The founding team at Jumpcut has years of experience creating binge-worthy content — we’ve created multiple viral YouTube channels that now have over 4.5 million subscribers and over 500 million views. We’re now taking that content creation experience and applying it to the monotonous world of online education.
If you’ve ever taken an online course, you already know that 99% of them suck. That’s because they all do the same thing: record a dry and uninspiring instructor who talks to the camera for hours on end. While this is fantastic for getting over an Ambien addiction, it’s atrocious for actual learning.
Think about what can be done with video: we have the ability to create things like Avatar, The Dark Knight, and Game of Thrones, but the status quo when it comes to online courses is this. In an ice cream parlor of unlimited flavors, every other online education company has opted for vanilla. We have our eye on the mint triple chocolate chip birthday cake cookie dough with strawberry whipped cream and banana nut sprinkles.
Our team is approaching online learning in a completely new way: combining educational content with compelling stories, captivating cinematography, creative soundtracks, and much more. The result is a beautiful course that feels like a movie. We believe the future of education lies in creating world-class content.

We’re looking for someone who loves strategy, marketing, and analytics to work with our core team to scale our revenue past the $20 million mark.
Your responsibilities will be centered around optimizing our 7-figure a year spend on paid traffic. You will work to improve our current spend, but also create and implement a strategy to grow our spend. In addition, as the company grows, you will be building, growing, and managing the paid marketing and analytics teams. Because of our small team size, you will constantly be getting your hands dirty in the data -- looking through it, cutting it, and building processes/systems to streamline its analysis -- and because of this work, you’ll have a great grasp of what ad strategies work and don’t work for our product. You will eventually create and optimize our ad testing framework to ensure that we’re leaving no stone unturned when we’re testing our ads across demographics and audiences.
Currently, we’re spending millions each year on Facebook and YouTube, but we’d also like you to help us expand to other platforms such as Google Display Network, Snapchat, Twitter, Reddit, and other ad platforms where there’s potential.
While much preferred, we do NOT require significant paid ads experience -- we’ve found that if you’re smart and curious, have a head for analytics, and have previous strategy experience, you’ll be a great fit for the job.
Finally, the job will require you not only to work closely with Kong (CEO) and Davis (Head of Ops), but across our other departments (engineering, production, operations) as well, in order to come up with strategies for growth.
The 2-year vision for this job is for you to build, grow, and run an entire team of marketers and analysts who are focused primarily on customer acquisition through paid channels.
WHAT YOU’LL DO
You will love this role if you:
Have a curiosity for how companies grow via paid ads (ever wonder how viral ads like Dollar Shave Club and Squatty Potty are made?)
Have a drive for wanting to be an expert at paid marketing (Facebook ads, Google AdWords, Snapchat, etc.)
Are a constant learner (e.g. you like to take online courses on your free time)
