Performance Marketing Executive

At Loaf we make insanely comfy sofas, beds and other laid-back wares that help people live happier, more relaxed lives. And we're on the lookout for an on-the-ball Performance Marketing Executive to help us deliver strong and profitable growth from our Paid Search and Paid Social marketing channels. These are absolutely critical to our success, so we're looking for a super-smart A-player in the making with bags of passion and curiosity who'll play a pivotal role in taking us to the next level!

Reporting to our Performance Marketing Manager, you'll be responsible for the day-to-day management of our PPC channels, building, optimising and reporting on our Paid Search, Shopping and Social campaigns across Google, Bing, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest. We've grown tons in these areas over the past couple of years so this is a role with exciting opportunities to take ownership of key growth-driving projects.

Curiosity and a self-starter mentality will get you far in keeping our campaigns running smoothly, hitting targets and spotting areas for growth and improvement. You'll love to geek out over data, and will feel right at home in a spreadsheet, diving into performance metrics and pulling out the story behind them. With your keen eye for detail and natural problem-solving skills, you'll be the first to spot, investigate and explain unexpected shifts in campaign performance indicators and the drivers behind them. You'll also feel comfortable taking the initiative to propose and execute potential solutions and optimisations, from bid and budget adjustments to ad creative overhauls.
