CRO Manager Role

About GrowthHit

GrowthHit is a growth marketing agency that specializes in conversion rate optimization.  We provide a customer-centric growth strategy for clients and run rapid growth experiments across paid social, websites, and email automation.  

We’ve worked with everyone from VC-backed startups and Fortune 500 brands.  Our clients have been featured on The TODAY Show, Wall Street Journal, and Shark Tank. We’ve seen clients raise over $40M in funding. We’ve spent over $3M in paid ad spend. 

We’re obsessed with growth.  Our team has written best selling books on growth marketing, launched 5 figure courses on technical marketing and presented on startup growth topics across the country.  We love teaching as much as executing. 

GrowthHit is a lean team of technical marketers, data nerds and side hustlers that get sh*t done.  We love working with founders because we treat every company like our own.  We don’t work with jerks and we don’t hire jerks.  We’re based in Seattle but have a remote team.
