Intro to Growth Marketing

The Growth Marketing team’s mission is to lead the business towards high-growth opportunities that are efficient and scalable.

We take a hypothesis- and data-driven approach to identifying and executing marketing activities that drive significant, sustainable, high-ROI growth.

We use insights from data and research on our payers, merchants and partners to develop and test hypotheses on growth opportunities and we use our findings to develop scalable marketing strategies to acquire, retain and grow usage of GoCardless.

The Growth Marketers work hand-in-hand with Product Growth, bringing the marketing skills, viewpoint and expertise to a truly cross-functional team. This cross-functional Growth team includes engineers, developers, designers, product managers and more, all laser-focused on scalable growth of GoCardless.
