Marketing Innovator/Virality Guru

at FunnelScope in Shhhh...   —   Mar 29, 2014   |  
Overview
Have you ever asked what it looked like to be at the right place, at the right time, with the right opportunity.....we are the first hotel search engine built on top of social networks to provide social recommendations. We are initially targeting the $100B global online hotel booking market with a focus on social network users (with unprecendented revenue opportunities). As TripAdvisor once drove higher conversion via anonymous reviews, we are driving exponential conversion with our extensive database of personal recommendations. Recent research reports evidence that recommendations from people we know provide a 4x increase in purchase intent. With 18 months of developing social hotel rating and review “listeners”, we have amassed a database of millions of ratings from nearly every corner of the globe that can personally influence more than 100M people....and growing.

If you are ready to live outside the box and participate in an exponential innovation in a 100B Industry....then hang onto your hat and contact us asap as the train is leaving the station! We are in the process of raising the only round of funding necessary to profitability.....once complete the line will be long....

You will be responsible for adding to and optimizing the core social hooks for a revolutionary social travel service. The marketing innovator will be responsible for driving viral adoption of the product across Facebook, Twitter, email and other networks. You will grow and optimize our current processes by creating and prioritize new features and collaborate with design and the engineering teams to bring these flows to life. This role initially reports to the CEO.

This is a tremendous opportunity for someone looking to leverage their viral social media ideas on a compelling social product that combines proprietary data and a new way of searching for travel. We are currently a bootstrapped startup and therefore this is an equity only position initially. We have begun process of raising capital and expect to close funding soon. Upon funding, you will receive a competitive salary and benefits.
