  • Own and drive the analysis of all campaigns based on clearly defined success metrics and find opportunities to level up
  • Devise and implement a testing program to enable experimentation aimed at increasing the effectiveness of CRM efforts as we continuously launch and learn
  • Partner with Marketing and Creative, eCommerce, Product, and Community Support to define and implement campaigns that align and contribute to business plans
  • Drive reporting to the broader organization to ensure that performance and our member journey is shared and understood for improvement and collaboration
  • Have fun and become an engaged member of the Zwift community

What we're looking for:

  • 7+ years of experience leading a CRM team at a high growth, community-centric or member/ subscription driven consumer brand 
  • Direct experience in building and developing member messaging journeys that utilize multiple channels including remarketing, email, push, in-app and beyond
  • Proven ability to synthesize and interpret data and customer insights into successful engagement strategies
  • Obsessed with driving positive member experiences through all CRM channels via engaging messaging and relevant content
  • A hands-on leader with deep experience in talent development and performance management
  • Expert-level knowledge of Marketing Automation software with a perspective on the best-in-class vendors in the market
  • Strong project management skills, excel at juggling multiple projects, staying organized and prioritizing deadlines
