What We're Looking For
We are looking for a passionate, detail-oriented, analytical, resourceful, charismatic, and customer-centric acquisition-focused growth marketer to join our Marketing team.
This role will be responsible for improving the conversion of new users across all our marketing channels into happy, valuable clients. The role will work with the entire acquisition marketing team, as well as product, engineering, and other marketers to build a smooth, informative, and customized experience for new customers coming from a diverse set of channels, backgrounds, and knowledge of M1. It will involve both day-to-day hands-on and high-level work in strategizing and executing to improve a critical part of our customer funnel. The successful candidate will have an “always-be-testing” mentality combined with a long-term and customer-focused view.
Our ideal candidate is an experienced marketer with 3-5 years of experience including dedicated work in Conversion Rate Optimization (CRO), Appstore Optimization (ASO), and creative testing. The right person has run countless A/B and multi-variate tests, understands the statistical side and also has extreme empathy for the customer. Combining these traits with an ability to turn research into hypotheses will lead to success in this role. You will get to build out and own our testing/experimentation philosophy, processes, and technology needs. You will look at our home page and immediately see ten things you want to test, have a framework to pick the first three, and know the tools needed to measure the impact. You will be able to take learnings and apply them across the entire funnel and just as easily take hypotheses and test them across key moments in the funnel.
The successful candidate is both able to work with a creative team to drive great customer experiences and dig in with the analytics team as a data-driven numbers guru. You have a successful track record of meeting and exceeding goals while designing and driving high-performance programs in a fast-paced environment, with a strong understanding of the supporting data and systems. You will not only grow our existing program, but quickly and proactively look for ways to fundamentally change and build upon it in new, unique ways.

Women, minorities, veterans, members of the LGBTQIA+ community, and individuals with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply. With our three DEI task forces (internal education, recruiting, and community involvement) and five Employee Resource Groups (Mental Health, Pride, Black, Latinx, and Women at M1), M1 employees and leaders set aside company time to tackle DEI projects and achieve goals every quarter.
Our team embodies our eight core principles and if these principles speak to you – we’d love to talk with you.
- Mission Driven: We will passionately apply ourselves to deliver immense value to our customers, knowing if they succeed, so too will the company.
- Extreme Ownership: We think and act like owners. Our focus is on building long-term value, not scoring short-term marks. We own everything in our domain, including the outcome and everything that affects it.
- Boldness: We want to do things of consequence. Make a difference. We would rather fail at something meaningful than succeed at something trivial.
- Bias for action: The best way to make progress is to act.
- Economical: Efficiency is important, and we consider both the costs and benefits of our actions.
- Team-oriented: In working together, we maintain a low ego, make everyone feel welcome, assume good intent, trust one another, and seek out different perspectives. We empower our teammates to be at their best.
- Challenged, but not overwhelmed: We are curious people who always want to grow. Growth happens outside our comfort zone. We achieve our potential through consistent, manageable growth.
- Integrity: We do the right thing. When we make mistakes, we own and correct them. We would be proud of our actions are shared with our family, friends, and strangers. Everyone can count on us to act according to our values, beliefs, and principles we state we hold. This trust must never be broken.
