Job Description

Digital Marketer
Contract position initially to Mar 31, 2021

Who we are

LifeTales is a small Toronto-based tech startup with a double bottom line — a for-profit company with a social mission. We're mostly Toronto-based, now working remotely with no current plans to return to an office post-Covid.

Building on our core tech platform, we just launched a new web app — Celebrate (https://celebrate.buzz) — and will also soon be launching our iOS version. We believe Celebrate will be a quadruple bottom line: fun for the gift-givers, awesome for the gift receiver, a great fundraiser for charities and profitable for us!

V1.0 is already very good — best in class. But not yet as good as we want it to be. We have many ideas for continued improvement. And we hope you’ll bring more.
 

What’s the gig?

Our laser focus for at least the next 6 months is on Celebrate.

We're looking for a talented Digital Marketer who is hungering to have an immediate and significant impact on the business. You will be responsible for exploring, testing, measuring and assessing the full range of digital strategies to drive and grow traffic, engage our current visitors and attract new users.

Our primary emphasis in the near term will be on Affiliate and Email marketing. You would be working remotely, with our senior BD leader and the CEO/Founder.
