Yo, We Are Hiring: Affiliate Marketing Manager

Do you consider Rakuten a form of entertainment? Are you a number-crunching, pattern-hunter with an agile approach? Do you feel an affinity for figuring out that new-new, get a headrush when you exceed your targets, and have a desire to work with high-growth digitally-driven brands that make innovative, game changing, must-have products? Um, yeah! 

We are hiring a full-time: Affiliate Marketing Manager

Location: Your House x Queen-and-Bathurst-ish

We do (very hands-on) agile strategy for innovative consumer product brands. We touch everything from highly analytical business model development through go-to-market strategy. We cross creative x performance all day long. We are obsessed with solving problems that stand in the way of business growth.

In short? We're crazy-entrepreneurial management consultants and go-to-market mathemagicians with scrappy graffiti around the edges. ;)


We make a big impact, with a small team, in a short amount of time, and have the best time doing it. You will spend your time on value-add activities rather than cutting through red tape. You will be part of a smart, ambitious, energetic, creative, and fun team that has big goals -- and you will be an integral part of achieving them.
