Your goal everyday is to lead and inspire our mixed media acquisition team. You will execute display, email, sponsorship, and content marketing plans while working side by side with the PPC team in support of our business category managers. This means constantly testing and exploiting opportunities, big and small, to build a sustainable leadership position in our high priority verticals, as well as supporting our umbrella brand initiatives.


Accuracy, authenticity, and quality are essential in everything we do. We obsess about finding the right partners to associate our brand with, and you will be bringing your marketing expertise and taste to bear and pushing our messaging out. You must deliver a meaningful message about Squarespace products and values. Every ad placement is analyzed both on a qualitative and quantitative level, and constantly iterated and optimized upon.


As a team we have the opportunity to think big and pursue ideas far beyond what traditional marketers might imagine for our channels. Our goal is to continually find new opportunities to successfully expand our relationship across every media channel.


We seek transparency in everything we do. We strive to communicate and provide resources for our organization that clearly explain how our channels operate, how the team is performing, and how we hope to improve. As a channel manager, you’re expected to constantly seek improvement and ensure that our processes are accurate, thorough, and firmly understood. Data is your best friend, and our data analytics platforms provide everything you need to succeed.


You will lead a small, tight-knit group that bounces ideas off of each other all day long. We actively solicit input from other members of the growth and business operations teams to learn from their experience and expertise.


We all give open feedback to one another, regardless of our positions. Transparent feedback is encouraged and expected at Squarespace.

Plan and execute all mixed media and integrated sponsorship activities for Squarespace, with a particular focus on display, email, content marketing, and site sponsorship activities, all to support our vertical category managers execute their business plans
