As Samotics expands, your position will involve a lot of responsibility and offer plenty of room for professional growth.

The growth hacker

In the role of growth hacker you divide your time between various tasks: (1) You will own all our paid lead generation channels; we primarily use LinkedIn campaign manager but also SEA and other social channels; (2) own our organic lead generation channel, the website; (3) manage our marketing automation systems and tools. In all of the above we leverage smart tools and next-gen technology to automate as much as possible. Finally, we are very keen to help you develop an all round set of interpersonal and business skills that will serve you well for the rest of your career.

You will play a key role in our growth: it is your key responsibility to generate (and educate) potential leads through two of our key channels; LinkedIn and our website.

  • Running and managing digital campaigns across all our channels (paid & organic)
