Job Requirements Who we’re looking for

We’re looking for a highly motivated, creative and fun person to take our growing email marketing program to the next level!

- You’d be in charge of (1) finding new email subscribers and OZY-enthusiasts, (2) getting them to say Yes! to getting awesome OZY emails, and (3) measuring and analyzing just how much our readers interact with OZY emails and finding ways to increase our open and click-through rates.

- Everything has to be done, like, yesterday, so you should be ok with a fast-paced, intense environment where you’ll definitely be working on more than one thing at a time.

- We love beautiful language and gorgeous design. I mean, just look at us (ozy.com). So our readers expect that language and design in their emails too. You would be in charge of making that happen.

- You should love analytics. LOVE. You should feel so excited looking at a spreadsheet, you can hardly handle yourself. Because without knowing the numbers, we don’t really know anything, right?

- You’re obviously a nice person, but we want people who are awesome to work with. Someone who raises their hand when there’s stuff to be done. Someone who’s energetic and just brings it every day like a champ. We need a team player not a lone wolf.

You should know how to
- Use a spreadsheet program really well

- Use email deployment platforms like MailChimp and Contactology

- Troubleshoot technical issues related to HTML templates and email deployment

- Develop rigorous testing practices – are emails being properly delivered? Are they being caught
in spam filters? Which subject line makes best sense for a particular campaign?

- Dig into analytics data to come up with usable insights about how to make the process and product better

- Create readable reports

- Use Photoshop/Illustrator/InDesign

- Come up with solutions to make things better so that our readers continue to be thrilled to receive an email from OZY in their overflowing inboxes.
About Our Company INTRODUCING OZY:

Former CNN/MSNBC anchor Carlos Watson and his team have launched Ozymandias (“OZY”), a new kind of daily news and information site that brings “educated but edgy” readers up to speed on what happened over the past 24 hours and then vaults them ahead by previewing 5-10 new people, new places, new ideas and new trends each day.

OZY readers are treated to truly forward-looking, global content, designed for easy consumption across mobile devices, tablets and laptops. In addition to great substance, OZY will stand for great style, including sleek, modern, colorful site design; compelling "make you stop and stare" pictures; and creative, well-produced multimedia.
