Explore the daily responsibilities, required skills, and salary potential of a growth marketing manager. Discover industry statistics surrounding job growth, common qualifications, and main sectors of employment.
Growth marketing managers are responsible for tracking, analysing, and recording important business data, using these insights to identify specific metrics to improve, then executing the appropriate growth initiatives. This could include information on customer demand, demographics, engagement, and common problem areas.
With the right data, managers select specific business areas to test new growth strategies. Should tests be performed within a product, growth marketing managers may work with the development team to implement the necessary changes. Alongside devising growth initiatives, these professionals also communicate their customer insights to relevant stakeholders; helping departments navigate through current trends and recurring issues.
These professionals typically report to the CEO of a company, the head of their marketing department, and the head of the product management. They also commonly possess skills in analytics, engineering, design, operations, and digital marketing.
As a subset of digital marketing managers, growth marketing managers can look forward to plenty of future opportunity. According to SEEK statistics, the industry is projected to experience a 21.7% job growth in the next five years.
