Conversion Rate Experts (CRE) might be the place for you

CRE is the world’s leading agency for conversion rate optimization (CRO)—a term that it coined in 2007.

It has worked in over 80 different verticals, in 11 languages, and in 39 countries—helping to optimize the profits of some of the web’s most sophisticated companies, including Amazon, Apple, Google, Facebook, and Dropbox, as well as many blue-chip enterprises, financial institutions, media companies, and fast-growing startups.

CRE increases the profits of businesses scientifically by analyzing their websites’ visitors, creating optimized pages, and then A/B testing them to measure the increase in sales. It has generated billions in revenue for its clients and double- and triple-digit improvements are the norm.

At the bottom of this page, you’ll see a list of the roles that we hire for. First though, we’ll describe why you’ll love working for Conversion Rate Experts…

What you’ll get on this page

The top ten reasons our team members joined us (according to them)

1. Work from anywhere in the world you choose. We’re looking for the very best people, so we won’t be restricted by your location. We won’t expect you to visit clients either, so you can spend the whole day doing productive work—and the whole evening with your loved ones.

2. Collaborate with prestigious clients. Imagine what it will feel like to lead projects for companies like Amazon, Apple, Google, Facebook, and Dropbox.

3. We pay well; our consultants achieve six figure incomes. We pay considerably more than most other agencies, because we know that one brilliant mind is worth a hundred mediocre ones.

4. Learn to be the best in the world. We’ll reveal every secret we’ve ever discovered about growing web businesses. You get to be entrepreneurial but without the risk.

5. Work with great colleagues. We’re continuously building the world’s number-one team of conversion rate experts. We also work with many of the world’s most respected marketers, so you’ll be in exciting and stimulating company.

6. Join our private mastermind group. Though we work remotely, we communicate frequently. As well as daily collaboration with your colleagues, you’ll have access to our mastermind group, which discusses the latest techniques we’ve developed and the results they’ve generated.

7. Develop personally and professionally. You’ll receive regular mentoring and training designed to optimize your performance, time, and income. You’ll also have the freedom to use the latest technology, as well as the budget to work with the best vendors in the world.

8. Full access to our private library of winning experiments. Our published case studies are just the tip of the iceberg. You’ll be able to fast-track your development by studying our private case studies, which describe in fine detail the winning controls that we’ve created in almost every industry vertical.

9. Extremely collaborative culture. Pretty much every newcomer expresses surprise at how helpful and sharing our team is. If you’d like to discover more about what it’s like to work for us, here’s an article about our culture. It’s the most revealing article we’ve ever published, and is well worth a read if you’re considering joining our team.

10. Visit our stunning offices. We hold regular get-togethers for our team members at our stunning UK offices in the spectacular eighteenth-century Hawkesyard Hall, amid picturesque formal gardens, canals and 200 acres of grounds. And it’s just 40 minutes from Birmingham International Airport. You can see it in the video below.

You’re statistically likely to be happy here

We’re a cheerful bunch—and that’s a fact.

We use software called TINYpulse to monitor and manage our company culture. Every month, TINYpulse asks each of us how happy we are, on a scale of 1 to 10. As the graph below shows, our team happiness score is way above average. (Plus, we expect that TINYpulse’s average is already high, because its clients are companies that focus on this kind of thing.)

We have won a TINYpulse award for our industry-leading scores for team happiness, company culture, personal development, communication and transparency, talent retention and attraction, and performance recognition.

You can work remotely—wherever is ideal for you

Remote working is the future, and we’re experts at it. Our founders have worked remotely for over fifteen years. We frequently get quoted in the media about how we have pioneered ways to build a fun, collaborative and highly effective remote-first business.

Working remotely can change your life. We passionately encourage our team members to embrace the freedom that remote work gives. We are proud that they…

  • Don’t miss important family events
  • Spend quality time with loved ones
  • Travel the world and explore new places
  • Work in amazing surroundings
  • Don’t waste time and energy commuting
  • Have time to keep fit and stay healthy
  • Embrace interests and passions outside of work.

We’ll provide training, mentoring and support to make sure you benefit from the freedom and autonomy that remote working provides.

Our team

You’ll learn new and interesting life skills

It’s not all about marketing. During our company get-togethers, our team members present on a wide range of valuable life skills, such as:

  • Optimizing work-life balance
  • Reading body language
  • Experimenting with remote schooling for children
  • The psychology of success
  • Designing lean, self-service workflows and managerless companies
  • The science of happiness
  • How comedy works
  • Process optimization (we’ve been on tours of Amazon and Jaguar Cars).

You’ll be working with exceptional people

Our team includes successful entrepreneurs, Amazon best-selling authors, Cambridge PhD scientists, heads of agencies, veterans of direct response marketing, and former employees of Google, eBay, Ogilvy & Mather, and British Aerospace.

Our growth has come from our reputation for getting amazing results, and we intend to keep it that way. If you believe you’d be a valuable addition to the team, get in touch with us—wherever you live, whatever your current situation, and whatever your earnings requirements.

Our team

Interested, but not sure if you’re qualified?

We don’t all have formidable backgrounds. In fact, some of our highest-performing team members were “diamonds in the rough”—exceptional people working in unexceptional surroundings.

So if you aren’t sure whether you’re suitable, please apply anyway. We have loads of experience recognizing talent and aptitude and, at the very least, the application process will reveal the skills we believe are valuable.

Our founders providing training.
You’ll get comprehensive training, and access to all the tools, techniques, and services we use to get things done quickly. You’ll also benefit from one-on-one mentoring, and access to the training materials our founders created for companies like Google, Moz, and Dell.

The roles for which we hire

We hire for the following roles. For all roles, the first stage of the application process is the same, so if in doubt, apply anyway, and then we can collaborate with you to explore the position that makes the best use of your skills, experience, and strengths.

We understand that you may already have clients or projects of your own, and that’s fine. Please mention this in your application. Some of our team members have the freedom of being self-employed—although this does mean you’ll manage your own taxes and home-office expenses.

(Note that, for obvious reasons, if you work for one of our clients—or for a company actively considering using our services—we can’t consider you.)

Roles that are client-facing

CRO consultant

Get paid to learn everything we know about growing businesses, work remotely, and achieve a six figure income.

Join our highly experienced team of experts who are responsible for delivering amazing (and measurable) results for our clients.

You’ll use the following:

  • Your personal expertise.

  • Our internal mastermind group.

You’ll provide our clients with the following:

  • Strategic advice.
  • Ideas and content to measurably grow their businesses.
  • Unbiased technology recommendations.
  • Highly professional project management and leadership.
You should have expertise in most of the following:
  • Web analytics, SEO, PPC, affiliate marketing, and offline marketing.
  • Real-world sales and direct-response marketing.
  • Understanding the psychology of a website’s visitors.
  • Usability and design of highly converting webpages and sales funnels.

Complete our online application form, giving us evidence that you have the skills we’re looking for. It’s pretty rigorous, though we’re sure you’ll appreciate that we have to be this way, given our results-based approach to everything.

CRO researcher

Wanted: a brilliant technical mind from inside—or outside—the web industry.

Our CTO and founder is a Cambridge PhD scientist, and several of our departments were created by a former aerospace engineer, so we know from experience that top-class scientists, engineers, and people from other technical disciplines really get this stuff.

We’re currently looking for one such technical mind to join our research department. Perhaps surprisingly, you don’t need to have experience working in the web industry. That’s because you’ll be working closely with some of the world’s best web marketers, creating processes and workflows that support—and sometimes automate—many of the activities they carry out.

What you’ll be doing—and why it’s an exciting opportunity

At Conversion Rate Experts, we don’t guess what’s wrong with a web business. We find out. This is the job of our world-beating research department. The key question to address is “Why aren’t visitors converting?” and we leave no stone unturned in finding the answer.

Typically, we seek to understand different visitor types and intentions, identify user-experience problems, and gather and understand visitors’ objections. We have developed a unique approach to doing so that’s unrivaled in the industry.

And this is where you’ll come in. We’re looking for a brilliant technical mind to join, and shortly lead, our research department. We’re growing at a rate of knots, so we’re looking for someone who has the potential to follow suit. The role will effectively be a hands-on crash course in entrepreneurship.

Our methodology is much more scientific and accountable than most web businesses. You must be systematic in your approach, and able to master sophisticated technical concepts and apply them in situations where the cost of failure is high. You’ll also be a great communicator, capable of making sense of complex data and presenting it in a constantly innovating and evolving manner. Most of all, you’ll be a problem solver, able to think logically in complex situations.

We guarantee to beat your existing salary. We firmly believe that one great mind is better than one hundred mediocre ones, so we’re happy to pay the best rates for the best people.

You’ll need to have the potential to quickly become great at the following things
  • Understanding the psychology of a website’s visitors.
  • Project management, motivating teams, and mentoring others.
  • Time management.
  • Communicating complex subjects in a way that’s easy to understand.
  • The psychology of persuasion.
  • Web marketing.
  • The Internet.
  • Advertising.

Front-end designer and developer

You’ll get to design and build pages for the world’s best companies

You’ll join our team of world-leading experts, responsible for delivering amazing (and measurable) results for our clients. You’ll take ideas, concepts and copy, and turn them into winning pages to A/B test against our clients’ existing versions. You’ll be helping to measurably improve pages that others think are unbeatable.

You’ll need to be the best in the world (or on your way to becoming the best)

We’re looking for the following:

  • An eye for detail. You’ll design pages to the high standards that enterprise-level clients demand.
  • CSS, HTML, and JavaScript skills. (Experience of implementing A/B tests is a bonus.)
  • Experience carrying out quality assurance and usability tests on your work.
  • Communication skills, so you’re comfortable speaking to clients (and fun to have on calls).
  • An appreciation and understanding of the power of copywriting and typography.
  • An obsession with the craft of creating and improving awesome stuff. (As a company, we focus a lot on systems and workflows, lean principles, XP, iterative design, clean code, etc.)

We guarantee to beat your existing salary. We firmly believe that one great mind is better than one hundred mediocre ones, so we’re happy to pay the best rates for the best people.

Please apply even if you don’t have all of the above—provided you’re keen to learn quickly.

Roles that aren’t client-facing

Internal operations (to help us scale)

As a remote-first company, we rely on usable systems and great technology. Our operations team creates and oversees these systems to make us productive, efficient, collaborative, and scalable.

You’ll be working alongside all of our departments to keep us at the cutting edge of technology, workflows, automation, and data security.

We’re looking for people who are…

  • Technical and create things that are elegantly easy to use
  • Great with Google Workspace
  • Experienced with remote collaboration tools
  • Highly responsible and proactive with data privacy and security
  • Early adopters who love discovering and researching new technologies
  • Good at discerning software that’s robust but also not clunky
  • Accustomed to working with lots of non-integrated technologies and implementing better systems that don’t break what’s there already
  • Fascinated with productivity and lean principles
  • Excited to find opportunities to automate or remove repetitive tasks
  • Experienced enough to know the cost of technical debt and mess, and therefore diligent enough to decommission whatever’s being replaced, and always leaving things tidier than when they arrived.

Of course, we know that one person is unlikely to have all those skills, and what we are really looking for is the ability to tackle novel, hard projects, like the following recent examples:

  • Creating a process to convert the Google Docs manuscript of our book, Making Websites Win, to Kindle in 15 minutes.
  • Using tools like Zapier to integrate our financial reporting tools with our sales CRM and management dashboards.
  • Identifying the best podcast hosting company and then setting it up.
  • Deciding on our visual design system—and our design ethos—and then finding a designer who can roll it out.
  • Choosing project management tools and building templates to standardize the delivery of our client services.

Sales and marketing

We’d like you to tell the world about our innovations, client success stories, and behind-the-scenes knowhow.

We don’t have a typical sales and marketing function. We attract clients by publishing high-quality and genuinely helpful content (like our book, case studies, and articles). Our approach is only to publish things we’d send to our best friends.

We “sell” by being genuinely helpful and having good systems for providing valuable advice, to the right people, at the right time.

We are looking for the following:

  • Creators: writers, designers, video editors, and more, who can take the most useful things we do internally and share them publicly. Maybe you could co-author or illustrate our next book.
  • Marketers and promoters who can get our content in front of new audiences (using SEO, email marketing, podcasts, webinars, events, paid advertising, etc.)
  • Technical marketers who design CRM workflows, email sequences, and personalized experiences for our website visitors, email subscribers, sales prospects, and clients. For example, identifying better alternatives to WordPress (we recently decided on a combination of Hugo, Cloudinary, Netlify, and Github, all of which we love), setting them up, and creating the easy-to-use documentation for our team members to use.

You don’t have to be able to do everything in the list above, and they aren’t necessarily full-time roles. For example, we often need very specific skills, like audiobook narrators, or infographics designers. Just let us know what you’re great at.
