Job Details

Constant.Co has built a platform that's reshaping the way marketers around the globe promote consumer products online. It allows marketers to build rich shopper experiences that are platform and retailer agnostic. We call these experiences Landing Spaces. They can build these experiences once and then syndicate them to any social network or ad network, targeting audiences that are segmented by retailer. Landing Spaces experiences support every stage of the path to purchase (awareness, engagement, consideration and conversion) and let shoppers check out seamlessly at their preferred retailer. This radically alters the economics of digital marketing. Instead of wasting their budgets on fragmented, generic activity, marketers can devote their ad spend to building high-impact, high-ROI experiences tailored to specific audiences, and then reach those audiences on any platform.

In less than two years our exceptional team has created a solution that's been swiftly adopted by many of the world's biggest brands and retailers, which handles huge amounts of retail product data, interacts seamlessly with dozens of retailers' eCommerce platforms, and provides an outstanding CMS (Landing Spaces Studio) that's easy and intuitive to use. You'll join our smart, talented and friendly team at a time when we're taking on a series of fascinating challenges that require us to keep developing new and innovative technology we're expanding into more international markets; we're deepening our integrations with major social networks, ad networks and eCommerce platforms; and we're adding powerful features that can handle every key use case that marketers across dozens of very diverse retail categories will need.

About The RoleThis strategic role includes leading and building a team that owns the end-user facing technology of Constant.Co. The Constant.Co platform is already embedded in many high-profile websites, and our clients depend on our ability to represent their brands and integrate seamlessly with their partners.
