About the Role
We’re looking for a skilled Senior ASO Strategy Manager to join our Mobile & App Marketing team, working closely alongside some of the top marketers in the world. You’ll thrive in a fast-moving, fluid environment, and be passionate about shaping user-centric experiences, communications, and working with diverse groups of people across the organisation to achieve your goals. You have in-depth experience in ASO with a global skew, who thinks strategically and is prepared to roll up your sleeves and get things done.

What You'll Do

  • Work on Canva’s global ASO strategy across over 50 countries and 100 languages
  • Work alongside the mobile & app user acquisition team to contribute to the strategic framework and roadmap for ASO for both mobile & desktop apps
  • Evolve the ASO testing methodology & experimentation to maximize impact
  • Ensure relentless prioritization to deliver a roadmap optimized for impact at scale and aligned with business priorities
  • Engage other teams to identify opportunities for high impact growth initiatives
  • Support impact measurement initiatives and work alongside data scientists to build measurement solutions
  • Manage agency consultation projects to support filling knowledge gaps and accelerating growth

Who You'll Be

  • At least 4-5 years ASO experience on a global scale, with a proven track record of devising and implementing ASO strategies and partnering with the app stores to grow mobile audiences. 
  • Experience across both branded and non-branded terms, and how to create impact for apps that are relevant for a large variety of non-branded search terms.
  • Agency or client side, we don’t mind as long as you have experience growing organic installs and improving conversion for all traffic sources — not just doing ASO or improving keyword ranks without real impact. We don’t set goals or measure success by keyword ranks.
  • You’re a big thinker and are excited to test new strategies to achieve step change growth on the storefronts (keep in mind that no black hat or grey hat tactics are allowed).
  • Experience working with App Store Connect and Google Play Developer console is a must. Along with App Store Optimisation tools like AppAnnie, Mobile Action, AppTweak, Storemaven and so on.  
  • Experience working with desktop apps stores such as Microsoft Store and App Store Connect for Mac apps will be highly regarded.
  • Proven understanding of how app stores operate and what drives performance. And we want to see a passion for ASO! 
  • Passionate about cultural localisation and the role it plays in the way we approach online marketing. Experience with ASO across different locales and markets is a must. 
  • Clear, concise and persuasive verbal and written communication. Ability to convey strategy and prioritization to senior stakeholders.
