Front End Specialist
Brands and Retailers are sick, seriously, it’s bad out there…they need a prescription, and the only prescription available is Koupon Media.
How sick you ask? Well, they are sick of the fraud that comes along with their current coupons, they are sick of having to deal with their IT department just to get out a single coupon, they are sick of customers only coming to their stores for promotions, they are sick of coupons eating in to their margins, they are sick of consumers not engaging with their brand past the point of purchase…I think you get the point.
We started this company to focus on realizing one vision: to reinvent the coupon. Our prescription for brands and retailers is through our patented technology that gives all of our clients the ability to set up mobile coupons in under 1 minute (without the IT headache), track user engagement, and then provide them trackable analytics regarding that coupon. Our platform is a highly customizable way for brands and retailers to develop a mobile strategy today without having to wait 2-3 years!
We are a highly skilled team that has a combined retail and mobile experience that spans close to 3 decades. We are looking for you to come in with fresh ideas, and move pixels around like they owe you something!
