Growth Hacker

full-time StudyPortals Eindhoven

Finding new services is in the StudyPortals DNA and therefore we are expanding the team with a Growth Hacker. As a Growth Hacker, you love growing web-based services from idea stage to reaching thousands of happy users. You are a smart creative person, who knows how to get things done. You are eager to really understand the needs of international students and turn these insights into a great product. It’s the great user feedback and the visitor graph pointing upwards that gets you out of bed every morning.

What you say to your friends when they ask what you do:

“I am having fun building and marketing innovative products to make a real impact in the lives of millions of students worldwide.”

Your key goals & responsibilities; aka your playground:

As a member of our LABs team you will be in charge of growing study abroad-related web-services from MVP to successful implementations, including having a great business plan. This typically includes the following tasks and responsibilities:

- Product Development: you enjoy working in a lean environment (build, measure, and learn). As a creator you are not hesitant to run a variety of tasks yourself, be it developing an MVP, partnership building, digging into complex Excel sheets or starting an email marketing campaign.

- Data Analysis & Research: you have a data-driven approach when it comes to deciding which direction a project should take and how to allocate people and resources. You prioritise based on anticipated impact and potential, substantiated by facts and figures

- Online Marketing: a good user base is key to success. You install and execute the right marketing strategy in collaboration with our marketing experts and external partners.

- Managing external resources: sometimes we work together with 3rd parties like web development or online marketing agencies. You are responsible for managing these collaborations and make sure that our partners are delivering to our expectations.
