Email Developer

DOE + profit share + benefits

Holiday Extras are on the lookout for an Email Developer to join our email marketing team! The Email team’s job is to communicate with every one of our over 5 million signed up customers in a relevant, entertaining and timely way. When people interact with our emails it makes us a happy team; when people click that dreaded unsubscribe link it make us sad: so it’s important that we send the right messages, at the right time.

We’re an unusual mix of techy and creative and this is what enables us to code responsive emails, write SQL, create clever dynamic marketing campaigns, and understand our databases. Not to mention, designing email templates and coming up with new marketing strategies to help boost our performance.

You’ll be designing and executing email marketing strategies to focus on opportunities that enable us to grow our email ‘opt-in’ list. Ownership is key; you’ll be managing various email campaigns with a variety of teams across the business. You might be working with other trading or marketing teams or even collaborating with the European part of the business.

We use the latest software to create engaging experiences our customers expect across multiple devices and lifecycles. We always strive to innovate in order to deliver the best experience to our customers. Our Learning Academy, quiet Lounge, supportive environment and focus on personal development, help our team members grow and become experts in their field!

It’s not all hard work though; we’re pretty good at having fun too. Whether we’re out in the beautiful gardens catching some sun in a deck chair, playing frisbee or playing a quick match of doubles on the pool table, we can be satisfied with another awesome day at the office.
