Acquisition Marketing Manager at BarkBox

New York, NY

Do paid search ads, display networks and keyword targeting make you howl? Is TrueView your True Love? Does a 6-pack o’ beer, your favorite pup, and a promoted content campaign sound like a nice little Thursday night? If you answered yes to these questions, we should chat.

Bark & Co. is a fast-growing business for people who absolutely love dogs. The Acquisition Marketing Manager will own a variety of paid acquisition channels on BarkBox and BarkShop, ranging from paid search and display to promoted content and new channel tests. You’re an analytical, hard-working digital campaign junkie that gets your fix by analyzing current/past campaigns, rolling out new creative and copy, identifying new ways to scale, and looking for ways to drive down CPAs across multiple channels.

This requires daily set-up, optimization, and analysis of multiple campaigns, following a direct response approach. Prioritization comes naturally to you. You will be responsible for managing the most efficient channels for BarkBox and will be working towards monthly and annual growth goals.



  • Create, analyze, and optimize advertising on Google, Bing, and Yahoo Search, as well as a variety of display campaigns
  • Test creatives, bids, placements, landing pages, and audiences to scale campaigns efficiently.
  • Prioritize efforts and budgets to meet company goals.
  • Generate weekly and monthly performance recaps.
  • Coordinate copy and the banner ad design process with our in-house design team.
  • Stay up to date on ad platform updates as they roll out. There is opportunity to expand into new channels as BarkBox grows and tests. 



  • 2+ years of experience with paid marketing channels and platforms, with paid search, display, and paid social as the most relevant skill sets
  • Strong analytical skills with meticulous attention to detail. Data should speak to you.
  • Familiarity with site testing tools like Optimizely and landing page optimization.
  • Advanced knowledge of Excel: pivot tables, vlookup, etc.
  • Experience managing and completing cross-team projects.
  • Empathy, warmth, curiosity, humility, and a somewhat inappropriate sense of humor. Openness to poop jokes is a must.
  • You have a dog and are obsessed with making dogs happy and healthy.



  • Paid mobile experience.
  • Email marketing experience.
  • Affiliate marketing experience.
  • Implementation of campaign automation using ad platform APIs.
  • Previous experience in start-up environments.
  • Photoshop skills.
  • The overwhelming majority of your phone’s photo album is pictures of dogs - yours and everybody else’s.
