Hey hey 👋🏻 I’m working on a job description for a growth hacker. It’s a little unconventional and might put off some people, but that is exactly my intention. Would love to hear some feedback from the pros before I put it out there. Here it goes: -- I hate the term ‘Growth Hacker’. But I’m looking for one. I dislike the term because a lot of people call themselves a growth hacker, while they are basically just doing marketing. You are not a growth hacker because you read a case study on the Dropbox referral system. I’m looking for someone who really likes to break things, wants to figure out how algorithms work and exploit them. And then enjoys the rush that follows from the traffic explosion and smoking servers. The most important qualification for this job is that you are a star at figuring things out. You are the person who knows that he is not the best writer but has found that great AI-tool that does the copy for him. The funny thing is, that most true growth hackers I know, use their qualities on things that don’t matter or are evil. They figure out tiktok, but use their findings to push the latest crypto scheme. If you join our team, your efforts will help sell more products and services that people actually love and want to use. Our company is an umbrella company for companies in a few different niches from graphic design to rehab, so you won’t be bored. My vision for all of the companies is to deliver quality to the customer or visitor and reach as many as we can by sometimes coloring outside the lines. I do draw a (hard) line at tactics that harms others. We want to be able to look ourselves in the mirror at the end of the day. Here are some examples of projects you would be working on: • We are building an army of Quora accounts right now to game the system. You will help testing strategies and come up with new ideas to put the accounts to good use. • We sell digital products on all sorts of platforms. You will help in figuring out how the algos of these platforms work so that we can exploit them. That can go from sending mass traffic to a listing (still works on some of the platforms!) to buying reviews to testing different preview images. What’s in it for you • Part of the training is taking the best course there is on Growth hacking. It’s a course by Jared Codling and I’ve paid $3000 for it. It’s worth every penny and you’ll love it. You can’t get a better training. • You should do this because you love it and want to learn and grow. You will get a fine salary which will be increased if you show your value. But this is not Facebook or Google. But, the learnings will be invaluable and will set you up for the rest of your career. • Work directly with someone who has a big passion for growth hacking and will give you tons of cool ideas to work on. How to apply Send me why you would be the right person for this job and describe in detail what growth hacks you’ve done so far and the results it got.

1. Change the “he” or remote it. You’re assuming the growth hacker is a male only. 2. You focus on learnings and ambition, so in the how to apply you might want to ask for a specific task to compare applicants in the same context. For instance, give a website and ask applicants to come up with a growth hack technique for it. Good luck
