Customer Acquisition Manager at Popsa

Popsa is looking for an customer acquisition expert to join us at our Soho HQ in London.

  • Equity: Share Options are available for all employees
  • Location: Soho, London

About Us

Popsa is an B2C tech startup that uses data science to automatically design and ship personalised prints such as photobooks, calendars, and boxes of prints.

In March 2018 we announced our second fundraise from some of the best investors in the world, including Silicon Valley accelerator 500 Startups, famous brand experts The Garage Soho, Pembroke (investor into Five Guys and Heist), and Octopus (by far the largest investor in Europe).

Our goal is to generate beautiful keep-sake mementos and personal photo-diaries entirely in the background - selecting the best user-generated content via machine learning algorithms before programmatically designing appropriate layouts.

We're calling it a subscription service to your memories; your best photos carefully curated and lovingly presented, printed and shipped to you each month - all without lifting a finger.

Our iOS app is live in 10 languages and we ship to 38 countries around the world. A major new version (as well as our Android app) will be launched later this Summer.

We are generating increasingly larger revenues, growing by 60% month-on-month in the last year. France is our biggest market, followed by the UK, Germany and Denmark.

They are made for 50th birthday parties, capture a new baby’s first year, or a fitting way to remember the holiday of a lifetime.

After launching Android in Q4, we also have the opportunity to broaden our marketing mix. We are investing more in content to fuel our campaigns. There will be opportunities to work across brand-awareness campaigns, both online and off.

Do you have a customer acquisition idea for Popsa, or an example of how you used insights to create a great campaign? We’d love to hear!
