About the Role
Our subscriber growth engine has been powered by a small but effective growth team call Subscription. Our team is focused on growing our subscriber base and revenue through rapid experimentation - both key metrics that power our subscription business. The team is responsible for a significant part of the product including subscription growth funnels, pricing, payments, and referrals. Our team also works on core retention business metrics: reducing churn and retaining subscribers over time. The team will drive longer-term strategic changes to the core subscription provisioning infrastructure to set us up for the next phase of growth including payments infrastructure, winbacks, cancellation, and other touchpoints further along the lifecycle of users and subscribers.
