HARRY’S COMMENTS: We are working with a well-established manufacturer of air purification products/systems in its search for a world-class 1P Amazon Performance Marketing Manager.

This is a HYBRID position located in New York City. You’ll be expected to be onsite 1 day a week. This is non-negotiable. As such, you will be expected to live in the metro NYC area (commutable).

About our Client:

Our client is a leading manufacturer of air purification solutions. Over the years, they’ve become renowned for innovative, energy-efficient air purifiers that combine mechanical and electrostatic filtration. Our client operates in over 50 countries.

The range of products has been designed to cater to many different environments, from compact, colorful models to professional-grade purifiers for larger spaces.

About the Role:

The 1P Amazon Performance Marketing Manager will drive continued eCommerce growth. With a strategic focus on Amazon, this hire will partner with cross-functional teams and agencies to drive lifetime value for the business and achieve business objectives through performance media.

As such, it’s important that you have hands-on experience with Amazon (ideally Amazon 1P / Vendor Central) as well as strong business acumen to be able to generate holistic and strategic media strategies focused on both acquisition & retention.

This position holds cross-functional responsibilities and will work closely with Sales, Operations, Brand, agency partners, and Finance business partners to execute effective strategic initiatives. This role reports to the Head of DTC.

The ideal candidate for this position has expertise and a track record of owning Sponsored Ads/Sponsored Brand Ads/ETC. In this role, you’ll have the luxury of an agency to help you with the day-to-day. With that being said, we’d like to see a candidate who has both.

Expect the following questions to be asked during our first round call:

  • Against which Amazon/Marketplace (1P) KPI’s is your success bonused / reviewed against?
  • Discuss with me the Amazon (1P) strategies with which you have HANDS ON EXPERIENCE. You’ll be asked to send me a link to your CURRENT Amazon 1P store.
  • Are there any other OFF-Amazon performance marketing channels/platforms with which you have hands-on experience?
