About us

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.

Share our excitement? Great - we’d love to hear from you!

The role

We have built a platform that enables our clients to deploy and manage direct mail campaigns similar to how they would use a tool like MailChimp to run an email marketing campaign. We offer full personalization and can interface with a clients CRM or automated marketing platform to trigger mailings based on user behavior and segmentation.

  • Integrating with printers and other 3rd parties to enable us to offer new formats and features.
  • Working with our data team to iterate on tools and methodologies for attribution, tracking and reporting.
  • Help us evolve our AWS infrastructure for performance and security.

Our primary technologies are Ruby (on Rails) and React.js. We are using Postgres, Docker, Redis and running on AWS.

Come join the party!

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!

Marketing Manager

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?
