Paid Search Manager

Seattle, WA - Full-time

Apply to this Job

At Glowforge, we help people bring home the future and make it their own. Our printer uses a laser to carve and engrave products from raw materials like wood, leather, acrylic – even cardboard. Take a look and see for yourself.

We build magical products to delight our customers, and we do it while taking care of each other. We hire people who are outstanding at what they do, who thrive in tight-knit teams, and who want to make things that make a difference.

Together, we've built a product we're incredibly proud of, and the reward has been incredible growth.

We work together because we believe in the power of creativity. We believe we can bring about a future where anyone can print anything.

We'd love to have you join us.

This is a full-time role in Seattle, and we are happy to help new employees relocate to this beautiful city.

Why we need you

  • There's nothing quite like Glowforge. That means we need to build the market as we grow.
  • You already understand why that makes search marketing pretty challenging!
  • When someone's never heard of 3D laser printing before, it's hard to match their search intent. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.
  • Right now, there are millions of people searching for Glowforge who don't even know it yet. We need someone who knows how to find them.
  • We think that someone is you.

  • Constantly test and iterate to drive continuous improvement. Every quarter will be the best quarter yet!
  • Collaborate with other teams to support their needs as well as those of search.
  • Consistently identify new opportunities for growth

You need these qualifications
