Share Local Media, or SLM, is a rapidly growing startup reimagining the world of offline marketing for tech and e-commerce companies. We started as e-commerce marketers ourselves, and launched SLM with a goal of turning direct mail into a high performing, scalable channel for a digitally native client set. To do so, we’ve taken an inputs based-approach to the space, and re-engineered the channel from the ground up to make it easier to test, faster to execute, more measurable, and ultimately, more effective for e-commerce and tech clients of all types.

So what does SLM actually do? We’re a full-service direct mail agency, media program operator, and technology platform, serving some of your favorite e-commerce and tech brands (think Casper, Lyft, Grubhub, etc.). We live and breathe direct response marketing, and strive to delight clients with high performing campaigns built around fast, data-driven client service, and premium, unique branding.

What are we like at SLM? We’re passionate, humble, and kind. We value data-driven thinking, speed, persistence, creativity, and teamwork. We love helping clients grow and scale through a tactile medium that has long term brand value. And finally, we get excited about transforming an old-school channel into something new through data, product, technology, and a service-driven mentality.

An Insider's view of Share Local Media

What are some social events your company does?

There is always something fun on the calendar to look forward to! Apart from our bi-weekly happy hours, we’ve gone bowling, wine tasting, to hot-pot, and to karaoke (on many occasions). We also love to celebrate big milestones whenever we can. The team is small and we’re all friends so it’s fun to hang outside of the office and try something new!

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

One of our biggest technical challenges is maintaining the performance of our ETL pipelines as customer data evolves so our analysts and data scientists can have clean data to explore for insights.

How does the company support your career growth?

SLM fosters career growth by providing employees with autonomy and ownership – while offering support as needed. At SLM, I’ve had the chance to own key relationships, solve pressing problems, and manage a growing team. Along the way, I’ve had guidance and back-up, enabling me to progress faster and be more confident in my abilities.

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

SLM started in 2016 with one product; in 2020, we offer four product lines, with more on the way. Our success has been powered by a team-driven philosophy of client-focused improvement. All team members must think critically and creatively. How can we better serve client needs, increase speed, reduce friction, and generate better outcomes?

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

There is so much opportunity to own and drive progress from Day 1. Every day, I’m collaborating deeply with the team to solve for emerging problems, and every day, I feel like I’m learning or doing something new. It’s always interesting and dynamic! Doing so many things for the first time is scary, but that’s how you know you’re growing.
