bullbird. engineered travel gear.

bullbird is an early stage, Boulder based start-up in the travel / consumer goods industry. We engineer travel gear so it performs better and lasts the journey. Our first product was a remake of the humble travel pillow. It was born from a simple insight that we wanted to get some rest in flight, but didn’t want to look ridiculous doing it. 80% smaller than traditional travel rests, it set out to become a crowd fund darling, and sell over 100K units in Brookstone.

Role

The time has now come for us to expand and spread our wings. We have just taken on new funding, and are about to take flight on our next chapter. To do that we are eagerly seeking someone to take over our eCommerce efforts with a key focus on Amazon and our own direct to consumer online store. Currently we are selling via our own branded store, however we are not on Amazon.

The role will be to establish our eCommerce efforts and help drive the growth, revenue and implementation of this department. The role will have clear KPIs and sales targets, however being so nascent, it will ultimately be up to you to define your career path and the direction of our business. We see this as a huge opportunity to get in on the ground floor and build not only our online business, but the foundation for your career in this space.

We are a super small team with big ambitions. We don’t have time for people who need a lot of direction, hand-holding or pep talks. It’s all about the hustle and we are super excited to have someone with your energy, enthusiasm and fresh ideas join our team. Oh and a love of travel goes a long way…

This role will also require basic levels of forecasting, inventory management and supply chain management.

Digital Marketing:

You will work with our partners and agencies to implement our digital marketing activities across key digital channels such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and Pinterest. You will have access to our Business Manager Tools, Google Ad Words and Data Studio thus experience in these tools and platforms is a must.

You will be expected to help grow and manage our social community across Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and Pinterest. Under your stewardship, our agency partners will derive best practice content and activations, including CRM, research, brand partnerships and referrals.
