We're building an all-star team at Tablet, based around an employee-first approach — simply put, we want Tablet to be a great place to work. We've grown exponentially, our business has grown more complex, and it's agile, fast-moving talent that will ensure we remain on the path to growth. You'll be a good fit if you're self-directed, self-motivated, and you do better work when you're trusted with a healthy amount of freedom and flexibility. We're located in Union Square, NYC.
Our brand is built on authenticity and a healthy dose of irreverence, but balanced, at all times, by consistency and discipline. The first two keep us from being boring, while the last two keep us from losing our focus. We know there's more to life than travel — but at the same time, we recognize that an extraordinary travel experience has the potential to touch just about every aspect of our lives.
We are currently looking for:
No recruiters, please. We do not work with 3rd parties for placement. Don't see anything that matches your expertise? Feel free to email us and tell us what your expertise is.
Our developers constantly challenge one another to improve their craft. We mean this seriously. To thrive in our environment you'll need to be smart, capable and independent, with a hunger for autonomy and for the responsibility that comes with it. We hire developers with great long-term potential and then enable them to achieve it. You'll spend your days using the flexibility of UNIX to produce simple solutions to complex business problems. The dress code is casual, the floor plan is open, and the upside is unlimited.
Working with our co-founders (CEO & CCO) our Head of Marketing will sit on our management team and play a critical role in helping achieve our aggressive growth objectives through combined performance and brand marketing strategies across all channels including editorial. Travelers who know Tablet love Tablet. The challenge is to expose more travelers - within our well researched international target audience - to Tablet. We have recently been acquired by Michelin and we will be able to more than double our marketing budget in 2019 in order to support our growing ambition. We intend to launch brand marketing campaigns - a first for us - in addition to our performance digital marketing activities while maintaining demonstrable ROI for brand. We also plan to develop the reach of our localized websites in major European and Asian markets.
Our intimate but growing marketing team requires a well rounded leader with a successful track record of devising and executing unified high-yield ROI performance and brand marketing strategies in e-commerce and/or travel. The ability to analyze campaign performance, capture insights, innovate on strategy and be creative are crucial to success. In collaboration with our data analyst, you'll provide regular reporting on KPIs to the CEO and management team. Additionally, you'll manage select agencies/vendors (we currently work with two) and collaborate with a diverse set of stakeholders including technology and product teams to ensure a positive and consistent site experience.
