Digital Marketing Manager – Ecommerce Growth Specialist
Scythia is a next-generation consumer products platform built by acquiring private-label e-commerce brands who are mainly selling stable, non-seasonal products.
The objective of the business is to acquire businesses/ products which sell on the Amazon marketplace and other e-commerce platforms and aggregate these businesses into a consumer products platform.
Our focus is on businesses with stable, non-seasonal revenues, without fad-like demand drivers. Our acceleration programmes can unlock growth through a combination of product management, performance marketing or supply chain expertise and other business functions.
Scythia supports the acquired businesses’ further evolution by hiring best-in-class talent to focus on areas where the founders were unable to, frequently due to constraints in working capital, time, knowledge or process development.
Our goal is to create a virtuous cycle of scale, enabling greater central marketing and brand management expertise, which drives organic growth of acquired product ranges, which in turn enables Scythia to build an ever-stronger brand and marketing management engine at the core. Through all of this, we will focus relentlessly on professional execution, from sourcing and managing supply chains, to customer after-care, and everything else in between.
When it comes to people, of course we expect a lot. We will always aim to be as flexible as possible and understand that life happens to all of us. Hand-in-hand with this is an understanding that we are fast-growing and must be sufficiently agile to deliver what is required even when this means that priorities may change at short notice and at times “all hands are required on deck”. We will actively work with you to help identify individual potential and to enable you to achieve it.
The founders of Scythia believe that truly great teams evolve from a culture of ownership, respect, trust and challenge; we look forward to welcoming you on our journey!
