Manager, Native Advertising

Chicago, IL

Are you one of those unicorns that can balance creativity AND analytics? Can you be a storyteller – but for a purpose?

Are you excited by the idea of working in a sort of marketing laboratory – in which you get to grow a channel, and grow it by applying test-and-learn techniques to your creative ideas?

If this sounds like you – then join us at one of the largest and fastest growing direct response marketing companies in the country. We've grown nearly 1000% (and went public on NASDAQ) over the last 2 years by emphasizing consumer insights and heavy creative testing to power our campaigns.

We're looking for someone to take over and really own our native marketing channel. You have a natural way with words – success will hinge on being able to test through enough copy to find high CTR headlines and high converting advertorial landing pages. You are also someone willing to accept setbacks as just one step toward success. Succeeding in native takes iteration and a dogged mentality.

The Native and Content Advertising Manager will report to the Digital Marketing Director, and will manage and help create and scale our performance based native advertising projects to meet company sales goals. We are looking for a person that makes data-based decisions who can create engaging and compelling content.

Frequently cited statistics show that women and underrepresented groups apply to jobs only if they meet 100% of the qualifications. GoHealth encourages you to break that statistic and to apply. No one ever meets 100% of the qualifications. We look forward to your application.
