Acquisition Marketer 2021

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

We’re looking for an Acquisition Marketer to join the Fastmail team in our Center City Philadelphia office. Introduce a trusted email brand to new audiences, on a team that puts people first.

What you’ll be doing

Together with the rest of our team, you’ll work on our email services Fastmail, Pobox, and Topicbox. When the vast majority of people get email for free, the reason people choose Fastmail is because they value privacy and a great experience.

Fastmail is in a growth phase, and we want to reach more prospective customers wherever they are. We use great opportunities, both one-time and ongoing, to introduce ourselves to the growing market of people concerned about their digital privacy, or who just want better email!

You’ll be part of our growing marketing team, supported by a data scientist, graphic designer, and the rest of our staff. You’ll be responsible for sourcing and managing:

You’ll be responsible for tracking performance and metrics, including CPA, to ensure effectiveness and ROI. You’ll find words that work for the audiences you target, building our marketing toolset one campaign at a time!

Who will do well at this job

You may be a fit for this role if you:

Your background should include:

A background with PR or analytics, while not required, would be a strong plus!

All members of our marketing team should be excellent, compelling writers, capable of producing high quality copy. You should be an effective team player, coming together with your colleagues to ensure consistent tone and messaging across all our marketing work. You should be comfortable managing your own task calendar to hit deadlines, and be comfortable with the basic number crunching of paid marketing performance.

Working at Fastmail

This is a full-time role. Like everyone on our team, you’ll get great benefits.

This job is based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Right now, we’re all working from home, but in general we have a strong in-person culture, and would like to have someone who will be on site and part of that culture once it’s safe to hang out in person again.

We also have an office in Melbourne, Australia, and we’re in close communication with them. This means that you’ll need to be available for an hour or two of evening calls each week. We are partners, parents and caregivers ourselves, and we understand time-zone flexibility goes in both directions. Talk to us if you’re unsure. (Also, once it’s safe to travel again, you’ll have the opportunity to travel to Melbourne, an artsy and charming Australian city!)

You can read about our values, and our blog contains interviews with some of the people who will become your colleagues at Fastmail.

We encourage employees to write and speak about the great work we do, and to stay engaged with their professional peers. Many staff members choose to attend conferences for learning and networking, and several staff members are regular conference speakers.

We welcome all applicants regardless of race, color, religion, age, pregnancy, gender identity or expression, disability, or sexual orientation. We can help you relocate to Philadelphia if needed. The thing we can’t help with is a visa or sponsorship. You must already have the right to work in the United States.

Sounds great, what’s next?

Email us at to introduce yourself and tell us why you would be a good fit for the job. Send us a resume (as a PDF, please) and the most effective marketing campaign you’ve run! We’d also love to hear what you’re interested in, what makes the job interesting, and anything else you want to tell us up front.
