Conversion Rate Optimization Expert

Blackbird Garage Chicago, IL

We’re looking for a Conversion Rate Optimization Expert that can run tests that will increase performance for our fast growth clients.  Many of our clients don’t have the internal resources to do this the right way.  You can’t blame them.  Before we started running their paid social ads, they were doing less than $1m in annual sales.  Now, they’re on pace for over $30m annually and running as fast as they can to manage this breakneck growth.

What we do, and how we do it:

Blackbird Garage is a digital growth agency that specializes in direct response customer acquisition.  In our first 2 years of operating, we’ve helped 4 companies scale from around $1m in annual revenue to $30m+ annual run rates.  We have more clients on that same path.   How?  We’re experts at ecommerce strategy and paid social advertising.  Think Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest ads.  We plan and optimize paid social campaigns.  We achieve scale, profitably.  

Who we’re looking for:

We want someone whose capabilities with Conversion Rate Optimization are (or will be) in the top 5% in the world.
