💡 About Albus
The first thing you need to know about Albus is that this business has absolutely nothing to do with Professor Dumbledore of Hogwarts fame.*
Based in London, UK we are looking for talented, hungry and passionate people to join the founding team on our quest to build the World’s #1 Influencer Marketing Platform for Brands and Enterprises.
We’re working on a paid pilot with L’Oreal and, as one of our corporate partners, the possibilities for commercial partnerships are huge. As well as L’Oreal, we have close relationships with other globally recognisable organisations who have been involved in the initial validation, all of whom have asked to use the service once it has been built.
*That said, working here might just be more magical than anything J.K.Rowling could conjure up!
✨ Our vision
Online advertising is in crisis. The advent of ad-blockers, global privacy concerns and increasing regulation are resulting in brands shifting budgets away from traditional advertising strategies.
+30% devices now using ad-blockers
84% millennials don’t trust branded advertising
But 58% do trust ads if it includes an influencer they like
Influencer advertising delivers 11 X ROI vs display ads
Brands are spending big (influencer fees projected to be over $6.5bn in 2019), but they’re struggling to deliver impactful campaigns, efficiently at scale. How much should they be paying for an influencer? Have they got their money’s worth? What are the benchmarks of success? Who is accountable?
At Albus we are building a suite of tools that help brands bring the end-to-end process of managing influencer marketing in-house. We’re using cutting-edge tech and superior UX to bring unparalleled workflow efficiencies and real-time data insights that enables CMOs and marketing / PR teams to plan and execute impactful and cost-effective campaigns that build awareness, drive engagement and generate sales far more effectively than traditional forms of advertising.
🙌 About the role
We’re on the hunt for a creative-minded (but scientifically-wired), full-stack engineer to join our founding team as Technical Lead. This is an opportunity to help us shape the early development of our MVP, build our development team and steer us towards a culture of rapid-innovation, experimentation and technical reliability.
