You will need to have the drive to work independently, prioritize based on impact, and possess precise communication skills to work as part of a growing team. If you’re a data-driven problem solver who can operate with a bias for action and innovation, then this role could be for you!

What You'll Do

  • You will lead affiliate marketing for KOHO, serving as the key point of contact for our affiliate marketing efforts and being the in-house subject matter expert.
  • You will strategically forecast and achieve growth, acquisition, Cost of Acquisition (CAC), Return on Investment (ROI), and Customer Lifetime Value (LTV) targets.
  • You will execute affiliate recruitment, onboarding, user growth, campaign optimization, communication, reporting, and data analysis in collaboration with the partnerships and broader growth teams
  • You will monitor and adjust campaign management to ensure alignment with monthly, quarterly, and annual budgets and targets.

  • You will monitor day-to-day affiliate channel activity, analyze performance by conducting channel deep-dives, identify areas of improvement, and consistently look for ways to drive growth while achieving efficiency goals. The ability to quickly pivot, making real-time decisions about budget reallocation to realize opportunities, will be quintessential to success.
  • You will ensure necessary tracking for affiliate programs on the web and mobile, including UTM parameters, link tracking on mobile (experience with a Mobile Measurement Partner), and instrumentation with technical teams as needed to ensure full ROI visibility.
