    Head of Growth

    What it’s like to work at Bark.London

    Thank you for taking the time to read this and for considering us to help progress your career.

    Firstly, who are BARK.London?

    We Do Growth.

    We’re a specialist performance marketing agency for category-leading direct-to-consumer ecommerce brands & retailers. We have one aim: help businesses grow. Practically, we do this with best-in-class paid media, data science; and full-suite creative.

    We’re officially Performance Marketing Agency of the Year 2024, Most Impactful Performance Marketing Agency of 2023, and double Meta Business Partners, as well as Google and TikTok Partners.

    Our vision is for Bark.London to be a vehicle for our team to achieve what they want to achieve: personal & professional. We’ll support them (you!) in whatever that might be and recognise that it’s our job as an employer to give our team every opportunity to make their goals a reality.

    We want to continue building an amazing place to work. A place where you can be yourself, do your best, and ultimately grow as both a person and a colleague. We do this through a supportive culture, flexible working, perks and continuous commitment to learning and development. See more on this below.

    Part of becoming a great place to work is that we’re committed to including people of all backgrounds and experiences. That includes race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, age, political affiliation, family or parental status. We want to hear from you!

    Why is this a unique opportunity? (why we’re even hiring)

    Over the past five years, we’ve grown in size and reputation quickly by hiring exceptionally talented people who truly care about getting results for the businesses we partner with, then providing them with the tools, support and training they need to excel.

    We’re a fast growing team that packs a punch and currently manages over 2x the annual spend of the “big 6” agencies on direct-response paid social alone.

    We’re going through a real growth phase at the minute and are searching for another inspiring Head of Growth to help lead the growth of pioneering DTC brands and build on our existing reputation for excellence.

    We’re looking for someone who wants to join a quickly growing, well organised people-first business at an incredibly exciting and pivotal time of growth, whilst accelerating their own career.

    This is a rare opportunity to join a rapidly growing company – without all the pitfalls of typical ‘startups’ – and personally impact the growth of businesses that are making a real difference.

    Our Clients

    99% of our clients are direct to consumer eCommerce brands and typically fall somewhere into the below categories:

    • Fashion, apparel, jewellery
    • FMCG
    • Greetings & misc. gifts
    • Sports & fitness
    • Subscriptions

    Many are venture capital backed. Many are bootstrapped, founder owned & run. They all trust us to lead their growth.

    Importantly, we ensure every client we sign is thoroughly vetted before we even offer to take them on. It’s important to us to grow the right way, with clients who we genuinely want to work with.

    Here’s our criteria:

    • They’ve got to pass the “lunch test”. They’ve got to be genuine, decent people to work with. Would we want to hang out or go and have lunch with them? Great relationships breed great work, and we want to give you a supportive environment to work and grow in, not clients who are rude or unreasonable.
    • They’ve got to have a product(s) and brand we can get excited about as a team. Nothing worse than working on a brand you don’t believe in.
    • They’ve got to want to grow and be in a position to support that growth. We partner with businesses to scale their customer acquisition, not just to push buttons in ad accounts.

    If they fit this criteria and we want to work together, then we’ll go ahead, but only if we’re sure it will be a strong partnership and only if we’re confident we have the capacity and resource in the team to make it happen.

    Just some of our clients (Paid Social, Google PPC, Attribution, Creative):

    • Chilly’s Bottles
    • Getir
    • FreeSoul
    • Dash Water
    • Not-Another-Bill
    • Aligne

    …amongst others

    Our Team

    We’ve gone against the typical agency model and hired an extremely senior to mid-level team first. Logic being, it’s important to build a firm foundation: be in a position to actually provide a great service to clients, and provide consistent up-skilling opportunities to the wider team as we grow.

    Paid Media Team (you)
    From Performance Marketing Executives to Directors, all incredibly strong on data, communication, creative and DTC strategy. As a team, they ensure our clients’ advertising is profitable and efficient as well as leading creative strategy and briefs to drive growth. They have a huge amount of freedom to advise the clients on what they should be doing, and have our full backing.

    Data Science Team
    Answering the hard questions and problems that can unlock the next leg of growth for our client partners.

    Creative Team
    A rapidly growing department designing and delivering paid advertising creative that just works. We offer full high-end production, low-fi influencer or user generated content (UGC), and asset design service combining a mix of photography, videography, motion graphics, copywriting and much more.

    Each of our team members is empowered to be a cross-channel specialist. Everyone works and communicates closely with each other at all levels of the business.

    The Role

    We’re looking for a Head of Growth to join us who is excited about taking on a new challenge and quickly growing with us as a business.

    Day to day, you will be leading a team of Growth Managers and Growth Executives with a core remit to oversee the performance marketing strategy (covering paid social, paid search, data & creative) for our clients’ businesses to ensure their long term growth.

    Alongside being the lead strategic contact for your clients, you’ll also be part of the full client lifecycle, including leading pitches and onboarding new clients.

    You must be switched on, commercial, empathetic, ambitious, a natural leader with a positive attitude and a desire to learn new things, as well as the ability to pick yourself and your team up after making mistakes.

    This is a senior role. At the least you should have at least 6+ years’ experience in performance marketing in an eCommerce focused role, either agency or client side, with a core focus on paid social and paid search.

    This is a pivotal role in the company as we continue to scale, and one where you’ll be instrumental in helping develop the talent within the agency itself too. You’ll be playing a vital role in helping grow not just BARK as a business but shaping some of the best high-growth ecommerce brands in the industry.

    We have regular company socials, hangouts, events and meet-ups, with a real focus on maintaining our company culture. So if you’re enthused by being surrounded by a fun, high performing team doing some industry leading work who challenge and bring out the best in each other, we want to hear from you!

    Here are some things you should know about how we work and what we expect as a team:

    • Work smart and do work you’re proud of.
    • Your time is your own. Manage it well.
    • Our clients are our partners, always do the right thing for them.
    • Always be learning.
    • Embrace failure, we learn the most when we make mistakes.
    • Get involved and enjoy yourself, life’s too short to take things too seriously.

    The Profile (you)

    • Minimum 6+ years in performance marketing.
    • Been hands-on with paid media, specifically Meta and/or Google, for 4+ years. Deep expert here. This is not a hands-on ad account role, but you must be able to do anything you’re asking your team to do.
    • Highly likely to currently be either at an agency and servicing ecommerce clients, or in-house at a fast-growth DTC brand between £5-50m annual revenue.
    • Been working on ecom clients managing budgets from £100k/month+.
    • Exceptional stakeholder engagement skills.
    • Great team manager. Experience essential.
    • Impressive. Great gravitas essential.
    • Needs and wants to be part of a high-performing team.
    • Excited to join a fast growing independent agency with a compelling proposition, great client roster, a reputation for delivering excellent work and a team who care.

    I’ve learnt more here in the past 6 months than I have in my previous 4 years leading Nike’s Search team across EMEA. Bark have completely delivered in their promise of giving me full exposure to the wider eCom growth picture, leading cross-channel strategy and making an undeniable impact” – Alex Smith, 6 months into being a Head of Growth.

    What the team are saying

    BARK is a great place to work! The people are friendly and welcoming and the culture is really enjoyable with regular socials! It has also allowed me to develop a range of skills, aided by the fact that we work closely with clients, much like an in-house team, meaning we help grow their business through multiple channels rather than being siloed to one.

    Josh,
    Growth Manager

    I love the flat structure here at BARK where my ideas are always valued. The flexibility that BARK means that I’m never burnt out and I can always bring the best version of myself to my work. Working on a wide range of interesting clients at different stages in their growth journey has exponentially widened my experience.

    Anysia,
    Growth Manager

    There’s a real focus on the “bigger picture” for the brands we work with outside of just what goes on in the platforms. This means getting a deeper understanding of the business which is really interesting and I think can often be overlooked by agencies. As a result we've been able to build strong relationships whilst working with great people.

    Daniel,
    Senior Growth Executive

    Team spirit is really important at Bark, so you’re not only working alongside some of the best in the business but your professional goals are a priority too. The culture is also great with regular socials so it’s a really friendly environment to work in.

    Georgina,
    Senior Growth Executive

    BARK are true to their word on Growth, I’ve worked here for over 2 years now I can safely say they've helped me grow as a creative and as a person.

    George,
    Creative

    BARK for me it's not just a workplace, it's a nurturing canvas where my creativity blossoms as a Motion Designer. The unwavering support and camaraderie within the team makes every challenge a shared triumph, shaping a journey where growth is not just encouraged, but celebrated!

    Leandro,
    Junior Creative
