We’re looking for a Paid Search Executive to join our growing London team. We’re looking for someone who is data-driven and understands how users behave in search in order to provide them with the best experience.

We’re a little different to what you might be used to though.

  • At Wise we’re on a mission.
  • A mission to empower our users to make smarter financial decisions based on transparent information.

In order to do so we empower and trust our teams to take ownership over decision making and execution within their area of ownership, ensuring they can execute on the things that will have the greatest impact for our users.

Search is no different!

Your Mission:

  • Set up, optimise, analyse and report on large Google and Microsoft Ads accounts as well as across Apple Search, spanning multiple markets and languages, with the potential to expand to new search engines in future
  • We are constantly striving to boost quality score and improve user feedback, and you will have the opportunity to own the A/B testing process across landing pages, ad copy and extensions
  • Assist in the creation and maintenance of dashboards and weekly/monthly reports, along with contributing to wider team-based plans, presentations, and updates

You’ll love this role if you…

  • Have experience running large, successful direct response search campaigns for a fast-growing business or agency, ideally across multiple markets and languages. Any experience with translations is a bonus
  • Put the customer first, always. There is no point in doing search unless you understand how you’re helping the end user
  • You are passionate about digital marketing and know what levers to pull when optimising a campaign against specific KPIs
  • Have experience creating, amending and implementing Adwords Scripts
  • You are comfortable working with numbers  and are able to gather actionable insights from data
  • Understand how SEM fits into the user journey and works alongside other channels such as Paid Social, Affiliates & SEO
  • Are proactive and able to prioritise projects on impact, with a low level of supervision
  • You’ve got experience with bid management tools (e.g. Kenshoo)

What’s in it for you?

You’ll be part of a team of exceptionally talented marketers who consistently break new ground in performance marketing thanks to strong relationships with key publishers such as Facebook and Google.

Within Wise we operate in a flat structure, you’ll be in charge of your own workload and focus areas, giving you the chance to have a huge impact in one of the UK’s fastest growing and most successful startups.

Who we are:

Wise was founded in 2011 with a clear mission: Money without borders so people and businesses can send, spend and get paid in any currency, whenever, wherever.

Sure, the heart of what we do is international money transfer. And we’re committed to making it instant, convenient and fair for millions of people, all over the world. But we’re growing our other products and our teams at an exciting pace. And we’re looking for the very best to jump on board.

What it’s really like to work here:

At Wise, we do things a bit differently. There’s no corporate nonsense, and no old-fashioned hierarchy. Instead, we work in dozens of self-sufficient, autonomous teams. Think of them like start-ups within a start-up.

Each team picks the problems they want to solve. So, there’s no micro-management. No hiding behind fancy job titles. And no one is telling you what to do. You are your own boss. But you’ll get tons of guidance and plenty of support from your talented, super-smart teammates.

We’re going to be upfront — the way we work doesn’t suit everyone. But if freedom, and life-affirming, head-scratching professional challenges rock your world, we could be a match made in heaven.
