Growth Hacker Scribd
Scribd is a paradise of growth hacking opportunities. So far, we've taken Scribd to a profitable website with more than 90M monthly uniques. But we believe there is a ton of low-hanging fruit optimization waiting to be unlocked by a skilled growth hacker.
We are big believers in the methodology of growth hacking and all the components that go into it, from rigorous A/B testing to fast iteration, data mining, analytics, and funnel optimization. We already have a lot of the core infrastructure built for this and regularly conduct ad-hoc growth hacking experiments that have yielded huge gains. As our first designated "growth hacker", you will get broad leeway to continue this work: prototyping, testing, and analyzing new features and optimizations.

You have strong analytical skills, can write complex SQL easily, and get a thrill out of watching metrics go up (we certainly do!). You can write both prototypes and production ready code, and have excellent technical judgement about when to do each.
