—————————— Job Description ——————————

Founded in Tokyo in 2012, SmartNews has quickly become the go-to source of news for millions of users around the world, and a leading news discovery mobile app. Our mission is to deliver the worlds quality information.

We are looking for an experienced marketing scientist with a passion for mobile marketing, mobile growth, as well as news and content discovery. This role will be responsible for shaping and executing paid growth strategies. You will find a huge opportunity to reach users in the right context with the right message through existing channels where we operate and newer ones.

Our charter is to drive profitable acquisition of users across platforms and marketing channels (social ads, in-app mobile ads, video and more) – and to grow the SmartNews brand in the US using a multi-million dollar annual budget.

You will work very closely with a cross functional team of engineers, product managers, data scientists, product marketers and corporate planning. We are looking for a candidate who is able to work with multiple stakeholders to develop data driven insights, propose recommendations, build a roadmap and operationalize it. This role requires managing by influence, data-driven thinking and driving measurable change.


Our marketing team is very tightly integrated with growth marketers, data scientists and engineers. In this role you will get a chance to learn about our cutting edge tools we have built already and also shape the roadmap of what we could build in the future. The engineers and data scientists and growth marketers are all embedded in one loop with a common goal, so there will be easy and dedicated access to different functions critical to driving growth.

Also in addition you will learn about how we have scaled using traditional and some non traditional channels, enriching learning about our unique story.

Come help us figure out how to accelerate our growth even further!
