ABOUT THE ROLE:
Udemy’s Director of Promotional Pricing Strategy and Operations will own promotional pricing strategy within the newly formed pricing team that sits in the larger marketing org and works across the business. Depending on scaling needs, you will build out the promotional pricing strategy team through 2019 and beyond. This team will be tasked with finding and recommending promotional types, levels, frequencies, use cases for various geographies, channels, lifecycle states, ecommerce moments and for various education product types. You will deeply influence Udemy’s marketing and growth strategy.
You will be involved in major monetization initiatives from fine-tuning promotional pricing strategies for the current marketplace, to creating new promotional pricing strategies for markets and products that don’t currently exist.
You are a cross-functional leader and will work seamlessly with Data Science to conduct and own economic and market research to support your work, with product and engineering to build systems to support promotional strategies and finally, with our demand and supply side marketing teams to implement those promotional strategies. You are also comfortable with frequently presenting and sharing your vision with the company in general and with top leadership.
If you are relentlessly rigorous in your analysis, find difficult intellectual problems impossible to resist, and are an excellent and influential leader; if you can balance empathy and efficiency, can build strategies, processes, systems and teams and are hungry to build and own a crucial piece of the revenue-value-chain of a global, rapidly growing business, then this job is for you.
