Senior User Acquisition Manager



San Francisco, CA, USA
Posted on Saturday, November 21, 2020
At Inkitt, we believe every author should have an equal opportunity to succeed. Our mission is to discover hidden talents and turn them into globally successful authors. Traditional publishing often leaves authors behind with human editors responsible for selecting books fit for publication. Inkitt is a pioneer at the forefront of Data Driven Publishing. By inventing an algorithm which analyzes users' reading behavior to identify hits, we have removed subjectivity from the traditional publishing equation. This gives Inkitt the unique ability to discover hidden talents that might otherwise have gone unnoticed.
Are you a builder? We are looking for the change-makers of the world; the people who just build the solution anytime they are unsatisfied with the status quo. Be a part of the revolution to develop new ways of distributing our books, audiobooks, creating games, and video series!
Come build the Disney of the 21st Century with us!
