Who we are

Mention Me is the Referral Engineering® platform for growth-obsessed ecommerce brands.

Our clients around the world use us to employ customer advocacy as a strategic and powerful customer acquisition channel.

If you’re reading this job ad with the intent to apply, your timing is just about perfect.

While 2021 was a year of big milestones for Mention Me - including surpassing US$1.5bn delivered in referral revenue to our clients - our gaze is set firmly on the future.

We’re on a mission to put advocacy and referral at the heart of marketing, delivering a data-driven but customer-led (and much trusted) discipline and dataset no marketing team should want to be without.

We’re growing our 100-strong team dramatically in 2022 with new hires across all of our teams. Success requires us to continue developing our product, building on our partnerships and driving more value for our clients.

Crucially, it also requires us to continue finding smarter and evermore effective ways to and reach new customers and tell our story. We’re looking for the right candidate to help us keep exceeding other people’s expectations of B2B SaaS marketing.

The Role

Reporting to the Marketing Director, own our performance marketing and paid media strategies and be a key influence on our conversion rate optimization efforts. Be responsible for setting the strategy and empowering your team to drive maximum return on investment across all online and offline acquisition channels including PPC, events, paid social, display advertising and SEO.

Digital marketing and advertising currently accounts for around 40% of the inbound opps that we pass on to our sales team. Success in this role means growing that figure to 60% by January 2023. Up for the challenge?

Using a data-driven approach, help our growth and scaling efforts by owning and developing the generation and nurturing of qualified prospects through all paid activities. Optimise lead conversion across the marketing funnel while developing and inspiring your team to build skills, unlock their potential and progress their careers.

If you value autonomy and opportunities for growth in a dynamic and exciting business with a great culture, come and talk.

Diversity, equity and inclusion

We celebrate every Mentioneer, exactly as they are. We don’t shy away from breaking down systemic discrimination in society, or from difficult conversations and decisions. We’re committed to being a force for change.

The same goes for our recruitment. We welcome every application, regardless of race, religion or belief, ethnic origin, physical ability, family structure, socioeconomic status, age, nationality or citizenship, marital, domestic or civil partnership status, sexual orientation or gender identity. If you’d like to find out more about diversity and inclusion at Mention Me, get in touch.
