About the role

Who we are

At Emi Labs (Y Combinator 2019) we are building the next generation technology infrastructure to increase Frontline Workers' access to professional opportunities. We currently offer a SaaS recruitment platform powered by A.I. that helps employers engage with Candidates through chat applications to drive faster and more efficient hiring processes.

We save Recruiters a huge amount of time by automating tasks such as screening, validating skills, scheduling interviews and collecting documents, enabling them to focus only on qualified candidates. This helps them hire the best Candidates for their roles, while at the same time giving a fair opportunity, and a great recruiting experience, to all Candidates alike.

What you'll be doing

You will become the first Growth Manager at Emi Labs and drive huge impact by co-leading the second phase of our long-term strategy as a company. You will be defining our growth strategy to rethink how Frontline Workers can more easily find the perfect job for them, and also how employers can reach these Candidates in a faster and more efficient way.

The role requires a person who can be a visionary to imagine how the world will look like in the future, but also be a scientist that can help us build and lead a backlog of data-driven experiments to get to that future. To accomplish this you will work in a dedicated squad along with Engineers, Data Scientists, Product Managers, UX Managers and Operations Leads. This role will give you huge visibility and the opportunity to get feedback on your plans directly from Emi’s leadership team.

Your Main Responsibilities

  • Bring a new perspective and skillset to the way we can plan and execute growth strategies at scale.
  • Develop a methodology to experiment on product changes, and measure the impact of every growth initiative.
  • Partner closely with Product Managers, Engineers, Data Scientists and Operations Leads on our growth strategy, experimentation and testing, and aligned reporting.
  • Execute plans and experiments across email, social media, job boards, conversational platforms, and referral programs to help companies reach a higher volume of Candidates, faster.
  • Understand different audiences at scale, be able to make common sense segmentations, and run iterative growth experiments.
  • Execute and analyze A/B test plans to improve engagement performance and conversion rates.

What we're looking for

  • At least 2+ years of growth, product or campaign marketing experience (ideally in a B2B SaaS environment).
  • Advanced analytical skills including A/B testing, cohort analysis, and conversion rate optimization.
  • Ability to work successfully with little guidance and comfort navigating ambiguity.
  • Strong project management skills.
  • Delivers value every week: thinks big, starts small, grows fast.
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills, both in Spanish and English.


  • Experience building/growing marketplace type products (where there is a supply and a demand for a good/service).
  • Have started a Growth Team from scratch in the past.
  • Some coding experience (we use SQL, javascript and python).
