SEA Specialist at FindHotel

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Posted on Sep 21 2019 (over 1 year ago)

Will you join us on a journey to disrupt the trillion dollar travel industry? We are looking for the best and brightest who share our passion for travelers, data and product.

FindHotel believes travel is the one thing that really opens minds to new ideas, cultures, and ways of thinking. Our mission is to get every traveller in the world the best accommodation deal. From adventure travel and backpacking to honeymoons and family vacations, we deeply care so that every traveller can make the best-informed accommodation choice at the absolute best conditions for every trip.

We are growing fast and looking for a SEA Specialist to join us in becoming a global travel category leader.

To be successful at this role you need to be passionate and experienced enough on performance marketing in general and SEM especially. You'll be dealing with search campaigns with hundreds of millions of keywords, so a systematic approach, knowledge of the tools and an automation mindset are super important, while not forgetting about the micros and good practices. You'll be always looking for new growth opportunities with a pirate mindset and not be satisfied with minor results nor happy with only playing by the book.


What you will actually be doing/responsibilities

  • Optimizing and scaling our different performance marketing channels, especially paid search
  • Creating and managing large scale marketing campaigns globally
  • Identifying growth opportunities and hacking the heck out of it
  • Focusing on automation: automating our different processes around user acquisition with AdWords Scripts, SQL, Python, etc.
  • Owning your own projects, communicating proactively and educating the rest of the company with your insights

What a day in the office might look like

You start the day with a standup where the team discusses what was done yesterday, any obstacles that need to be tackled and the plan for today. Before lunch, you analyze the performance of an experiment you've been running and start documenting your findings. Then you plan a session with the team to discuss the value of your findings and how to incorporate them to our campaign structure so that we can roll them out globally. After lunch, you work on building a script that will automate part of your follow up routines and frees up time for more experiments. Then you take a well-deserved break to challenge your colleagues in Foosball, Table Tennis, or Pool. Finally, you contact your freelancer team to improve our ad copy and translations in one of the more than 20 languages you work with.  


People we love

  • Data guides every decision you make, from pricing to prioritization and experimentation
  • You own problems, strive to get big wins delivered and take initiative where possible
  • Tech-savvy and love learning new tools and technologies
  • You try to automate as much as possible. A good knowledge of AdWords scripts, SQL, python, etc. is a plus
  • Curious, not afraid to experiment and willing to question the status quo
  • You have experience with Performance Marketing, knowledge of the tools and a mind full of innovative ideas
  • You have high proficiency with Excel and comfortable using BI tools such as Looker

Why join now?

  • This year we will be helping +1M customers around the world find better hotel deals, using data, transparency & industry-leading features
  • We are in fast growth mode and have been growing bookings by +100% YOY for the past 2 years and plan to continue doing so in the coming years
