Marketing & Communications, Sales & Business Development
Missoula, MT, USA
Posted on Thursday, June 22, 2023


As a pioneer in digital outdoor navigation with a suite of apps, onX was founded in Montana, which in turn has inspired our mission to awaken the adventurer inside everyone. With more than 300 employees located around the country working in largely remote / hybrid roles, we have created regional “Basecamps” to help remote employees find connection and inspiration with other onXers. We bring our outdoor passion to work every day, coupling it with industry-leading technology to craft dynamic outdoor experiences.

Through multiple years of growth, we haven’t lost our entrepreneurial ethos at onX. We offer a fast-paced, growing, tech-forward environment where ownership, accountability, and passion for winning as a team are essential. We value diversity and believe it leads to different perspectives and inspires both new adventures and new growth. As a team, we’re hungry to improve, value innovation, and believe great ideas come from any direction.


The Growth Marketing Manager - Mobile User Acquisition is an exciting opening on the User Acquisition team that drives significant growth and business impact for the onX Hunt app. This position will own and implement a large-scale annual advertising budget and multi-channel strategy focused on increasing and optimizing onX Hunt’s top of funnel. You’ll work closely with the onX Hunt team to bring campaigns to life across various digital channels and you’ll be looked to for identifying new opportunities to acquire new, passionate onX Hunt customers.

Who You Are:

  • Mobile Marketer. You possess 5 years or more of customer acquisition experience through mobile marketing tactics such as measuring incrementally and install quality, and have done so on behalf of an app within the App Store and Google Play Store. You also are able to demonstrate confident & comprehensive campaign management abilities with strategic and technical understanding.
  • Social Ads Marketer. You've managed paid social campaigns across major platforms including Facebook, Snapchat, and TikTok. You have experience leveraging creatives & tactical strategies, making campaign and backend optimizations, and managing budgets.
  • Hypothesis and Test Driven. You’ve figured out opportunities along your digital marketing career to not let advertising algorithms interrupt your ability to create iterative tests. In doing so, perhaps you’ve also been able to connect your tests back to app user behavior and can speak to testing programs you’ve designed that have helped support various marketing funnel rates and metrics.
  • Understand Attribution, Measurement, and Incrementality. You possess a strong familiarity and practical experience working with self-attributing networks (SANs) and using mobile measurement platforms (MMP) including fraud monitoring, post-back configuration, and event management. Your experience navigating attribution has potentially also led you to working with media mix modeling (MMM) as another means of attributing marketing contribution.
  • Strong Communicator and Team Player. You know that paid user acquisition requires a high degree of interpersonal and written skills to execute and report on a campaign. When you spot an opportunity, you collaborate with designers, writers, data analysts & stakeholders to make it a reality. When there’s a win, you understand that the success of one channel requires the support of others and you share wins across the greater team.
  • Customer and Product Curious. You have hands-on experience developing hypothesis-driven marketing tests and advertising assets that speak to consumer insights. Your curiosity has led you to deep customer persona understandings, and this has translated into successful testing and product marketing campaigns.
  • Mobile Analytics and Systems Thinker. Your mobile marketing experience has required you to understand the backend and technical needs of advertising, analytics, and attribution platforms. In doing so, you may have worked with platforms such as Google Analytics, Amplitude, Branch, or mParticle. You’ve worked with a diverse team of engineers and analysts to set up relevant platform usage and troubleshoot where needed.
  • Revenue & Efficiency Driver. You’ve worked with financial teams and senior management to drive paid user acquisition based on sound economics. Beyond individual channel metrics, you’ve communicated performance through business metrics such as LTV:CAC and Revenue.

As a Growth Marketing Manager, your essential job duties and responsibilities will look like:

  • Lead onX Hunt’s Paid Acquisition Strategy. You’ll lead the onX Hunt paid user acquisition strategy including overall management of related digital ad channels and budgets. To be successful, you’ll need to be curious, willing to learn, and invested in making onX Hunt successful.
  • Own onX Hunt’s Digital Advertising Budget. You’ll be responsible for partnering with the onX Hunt team and Finance in order to create yearly, monthly, and weekly budgets. You’ll forecast relevant metrics to inform performance of the mobile marketing funnel such as install-to-trial rates.
  • Channel Management and Diversification. You’ll directly own and manage digital advertising channels for onX Hunt including Facebook, Google AC, Snapchat, Remerge, TikTok, and others as needed or relevant. You’ll implement digital marketing tactics including—but not limited to—ad management, attribution settings, targeting, creative development, landing page optimization, A/B testing, tracking, and analysis. You’ll also help identify, and standup, new advertising channels and will manage vendor relationships, creative development, and managing necessary technical implementation.
  • Business Analysis and Strategic Improvements. In partnership with the UA leader and other UA managers, you’ll periodically undertake strategic business tasks and projects such as evaluating costs, risks, and opportunities to the paid acquisition business. You’ll help manage implementation and continuous improvements to relevant parts of the marketing tech stack.
