Digital Marketing Manager

ReUp Education - San Francisco, California or Remote - Full time

About ReUp Education

More than 40% of college students in the U.S. drop out -- some 37 million Americans in the last two decades. Many of these “Forgotten Students” leave college with mountains of debt (over $27 billion annually) and without the earning power of a diploma. The social, economic, and human potential loss is enormous.

While this completion crisis is alarming, ReUp has the solution. We are proud to work with some of the most diverse universities and colleges in the country -- tackling this problem together at scale.

Founded in 2015, we are the only organization that focuses exclusively on helping universities engage and re-enroll students who have “stopped out” and support them until graduation, through our technology-enabled service. To date, we have re-enrolled over 7,500 students and recaptured over $18 million in tuition for our university partners.

The Role

ReUp Education is seeking a skilled Digital Marketing Manager to run our acquisition and engagement efforts to drive student and university growth. By helping us execute, iterate, and innovate on our outreach strategies across channels, you’ll enable us to achieve our ambitious goal of re-enrolling and supporting millions of college students.

The Digital Marketing Manager will focus on creating student-facing materials that touch upon multiple aspects of a student’s return to higher ed, from re-enrollment to graduation. You will take advantage of user segmentation, combined with predictive analytics and automation, to create and disseminate content and messaging that resonates with current and prospective students. You will also work with our sales team to help drive university partner acquisition through a variety of demand generation tactics. Experimentation (e.g. A/B testing) will be critical as we seek to understand how to best reach and serve both potential partners and students alike, based on their unique needs.

This is an incredible opportunity to play a meaningful role in a growing early-stage startup as we tackle a huge problem that affects a largely underserved population. If you’re a natural self-starter interested in combining creativity with the power of data, marketing, and automation to transform people’s lives, come join us!
