We’re a lean team that’s growing fast. That means in some cases requirements will be really clearly defined, audience insights set, comms templated and you’ll sweep in to execute. In other cases, we’ll be working from scratch - putting our heads together to come up with solutions. That means you’ll be working closely with people from different parts of our business, helping build campaigns and processes that’ll help to hit our big goals.
