  • Collaborate with the Product, Engineering, and Marketing team to optimize conversion flows and user acquisition tactics.
  • Develop and own our SEO strategy and figure out how to drive sales via our relationship content.
  • Educate the team about what you’re learning about our users and what resonates with them. We are a user-centric company, where all innovation is driven by what we learn about our users.
  • Demonstrate intellectual curiosity and outside-in thinking on best and evolving practices, and ensure the team is constantly at the edge of the newest high-potential opportunities, tools, and systems.

  • A good understanding of the D2C consumer subscription market
  • Deep understanding and experience across performance marketing channels, demonstrating depth and breadth of strategic and tactical knowledge of how different performance marketing channels can drive customer and business goals
  • Deep understanding of performance metrics, including CPI, CAC, LTV, ROAS, etc.
  • A passion for Marketing. You stay up to date on the industry, platforms and changes as they roll out
  • Experience working closely with product and engineering to develop tools and strategies to maximize performance
  • Organized and structured, ability to reliably deliver on plans and forecasts

Why Lasting from Talkspace?

Lasting from Talkspace is a relationship counseling company and creator of the #1 relationship health app, as seen on The Today Show, Good Morning America, and many more. Our product helps millions of couples nurture and repair their emotional connection.

In light of America’s 45% divorce rate, we believe that relationships are one of the most important and pressing issues of our time. Consider the following:

  • Research has shown that relationships are as vital to your overall health as diet and exercise. People in healthy relationships live 10 years longer on average, and marriages in distress can lead to a variety of physical health issues;
  • The key factor in lifelong happiness and satisfaction is maintaining long-term, healthy relationships;
  • Most importantly, the leading factor in the cognitive, emotional, and social development of children (and the future generation) is relationships (i.e. the emotional connection between the two parents).

Lasting is a scrappy startup trying to solve difficult problems, sprint quickly, and scale its service globally to help build and maintain relationships everywhere. Fun company-wide events, happy hours, wellness perks, flex PTO, access to Talkspace products, and competitive benefits are just some of the ways we make Talkspace a great place to work. Do you want to save the world? Come join us!
