We are a small but mighty team working at the crossroads of technology and entertainment.

What’s in it for you?
This is an incredibly exciting time to join the digital business. As the Director, Lifecycle Marketing, you will play a key role in the evolution and success of the Direct-to-Consumer (DTC) business. You’ll have the opportunity to work with a dynamic, passionate and incredibly talented creative team to launch a new subscription-based streaming & interactive experience from the ground up.


The Director of Lifecycle Marketing will be responsible for strategic leadership of our lifecycle marketing initiatives. You will be able to turn customer data and insights into actionable strategies, delivering meaningful interactions with our growing customer base.

In this role you will spearhead efforts to increase customer engagement and retention, build segmented customer journeys and bolster the customer communications experience. You will have a vision for the best customer experience and will lead the team to develop and deploy the most effective and innovative multichannel CRM programs with an agile “test and learn” mindset, focused on maximizing customer lifetime value, loyalty and retention.

About you:

• A proven customer lifecycle marketer with the ability to develop and execute successful customer engagement and retention strategies within a digital subscription environment

• A customer first, creative thinker who isn’t afraid of working with data to enhance campaigns and overall strategies

5. Increase ROI - Optimize comms through A/B and multivariate testing: template, segmentation, content, calls-to-action, timing and frequency.

6. Deliver KPIs – Ensure overachievement against budget on all retention KPIs and own retention forecasting

7. Customer Insight – Continuously strive to better understand customer behavior and gain actionable insights that flow into improved retention strategy and activity. Including delivering a propensity to churn model and engagement plan to mitigate.

8. Reporting – Regularly monitor analytics and develop reports, including an attribution framework/process, for all activity for relevant business stakeholders, to ensure the impact of initiatives is fully understood and the results are used to inform future plans and improvement.

9. Customer service – Collaborate with the internal customer service teams through development
