Job Summary

Are you a creative, highly-motivated, data-driven marketer with a passion for acquiring new customers and launching new products? Interested in Amazon Alexa and the future of voice-first consumer marketing and engagement? Audible - an Amazon company and perpetual innovator – is seeking an entrepreneurial, analytical, and results-oriented marketer who can develop and lead marketing programs and campaigns focused on driving traffic and customer acquisition via Amazon Devices. This is a unique opportunity to make a significant contribution to building smart, innovative marketing programs that are demonstrably impactful to the business. You will work cross-functionally and globally across Audible and Amazon to support and accelerate the growth of Audible.

The ideal candidate is an early adopter of voice technology with an entrepreneurial spirit. You will have a successful track record in partner and/or consumer product marketing and experience in e-commerce and will demonstrate a knack for rolling up your sleeves and getting things done with both internal and external partners. To be successful in this role you will need to be creative and dedicated to continually testing, measuring and evolving new marketing programs that drive traffic, acquisition of Audible on Amazon Device, and ongoing usage. When you build something that delivers results, you’ll need to be able to scale your program to leverage your work.

Your mission (and ours) is unique and powerful: fill hearts, minds, and souls with premium audio content that enables learning and literate entertainment.
