About Candide

Candide is a growing market-network platform based in central Bristol with the mission to connect plant lovers with inspiration, knowledge and each other.

We have offices in Bristol (UK) and Cape Town (South Africa) with over 50 staff members.
We openly put our people first, and we’re proud to be building a team that genuinely loves working and learning together. We know how important culture is, so have a read to see if you think we might be a good fit.

We are looking for a data-driven marketer to join the Candide Marketplace team. The focus of the role will be to grow and direct new buyers into the marketplace by continuous optimisation and experimentation of our products SEO, ASO and the CRO.

Your Responsibilities

You’ll be working within our Marketplace cross-functional team, responsible for organic product growth; working directly with our designers, supplier growth team, engineers and the product lead to help optimise every step of our customer’s journey.
Focuses will be:
  • Website; designing CRO tests, day to day SEO optimisations and reporting on our best SEO opportunities to the broader teams
  • Content; managing on-page SEO and content optimisation, doing keyword research to feed into the content plan and guiding our link building and outreach programmes
  • App Store; optimising our app store listing with ASO keyword research and A/B tests
  • Campaigning; promoting and leading the wider company on the latest and best practices for organic growth.

Your Background

You’ll be tech-savvy with existing knowledge of technical SEO, SQL, and HTML being a big bonus. You’ll enjoy working with data and may have experience with analytics tools, including an advanced understanding of Microsoft Excel/Google Sheets.
We’re looking for someone with a strong academic background ideally in a quantitative field, or with a track record of quantitative mastery through work experience.

You’ll be highly driven and keen to continuously innovate campaigns and engage with our users.

Team Culture

We work in small, cross-functional teams to turn business goals into product features. Great communication means there is an inherent no-blame culture, and our collaborative and inclusive structure encourages everyone to share ideas on how we can improve our processes, growth and product. All our teams have a short daily stand-up, this ensures we remain aligned, and those who build products stay very close to our customers that enjoy them. To encourage innovation, we hold monthly hack days where everyone can build something new that falls outside our current roadmap - an idea, a campaign or even a small product - with whomever they like.

Our Values

For plant lovers
We democratise information about plants by building social connections between people, gathering their knowledge and making it as accessible as possible. We ultimately aim to be the most useful tool in a gardener’s pocket and to accentuate the social, environmental, and physical benefits already associated with gardening.
For the future
We explore new, emerging technologies and continuously adapt to rapidly seize opportunities others have missed. In this way, we will bring the gardening industry into the 21st century and secure its relevance in the long-term.
For good
We build on the inherent positivity of our subject matter and protect our “warm and safe community”, which sets us apart. We use our platform to encourage conscious, informed decision-making and work with individuals and companies to progress our values.
