“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.
You will be responsible for taking over all our paid advertising. Your first 6 months will be taking over each platform (Facebook, YouTube) and optimizing the spend; after that, you’ll be hiring a team to scale our revenue to 50M by hitting other platforms and increasing spend on our current ones.
Your main responsibility will be strategic: you’ll be testing hypotheses on which ads and which audiences work the best, but you’ll also be responsible for building out our analytics capabilities (and learning SQL while you’re at it), working with our content team on ad ideas, and eventually managing a team of analysts underneath you.
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. However, if you do have experience -- especially running advertising for mobile games -- you’ll be a great fit here.
You’ll be working closely with Kong (CEO), Peter (COO) and Davis (Head of Ops).
You will love this role if you:
Create Excel spreadsheets for your life because you think it’s "fun"
Like seeing revenue going up and up
Want to develop expertise in a tangible domain
Love experimenting and coming up with hypotheses
