Measure results and optimize the lead nurturing workflows for these segments to convert leads into customers.
Work to minimize list decay and unsubscribes while increasing the productivity of our email sends.
Develop documentation and road maps for processes, A/B tests, and promotions that succeed through email.

Required Experience:

BA/BS degree or equivalent work experience.
