  • Job Code

Were looking for the rare Leonardo da Vinci of A/B testing and CRO to join our world-class remote digital optimization team as a hybrid UX/UI visual designer and front-end developer all in one package. Yes, this is a highly unusual request to pack all these skills into a single uber-talented person, but we have a reason: weve found this is the fastest way to get high-quality testing ideas implemented. And speed is the name of the game in the CRO world that includes both website and app optimization. We know this is a tall order but we recruit nationally with a similar strategy for all positions and know this renaissance person is out there and we are confident we will find you!

Hello, my name is Kaitlin Reiss, Head of Ecommerce at Metabolic Living, and I need your help. Were a 100% remote $60MM+, self-funded, 9-year old company with 100+ teammates thats growing 100% YoY with a goal of being a billion-dollar brand by 2023. Weve hired the leader of our digital optimization team who has 3,200 split tests under his belt. And now were recruiting the remaining pieces of this world-class team as we get ready to launch two major strategic initiatives to introduce our new brand: our state-of-the-art e-commerce website and customized app that leverages machine learning and AI.

This role will have a heavy influence in how we both develop and market both of those assets. The funnest part is that we spend $2MM+ monthly in online ads now, scaling to $5MM by end of the year, so that heavy traffic flow allows us to ideate, execute and iterate hundreds of times per month with rapid learning. For those of you who are as obsessed with testing as I am, this is a dream-scenario to be in. I joined the company because I wanted to be part of building their new brand, to build something special, to build it the right way. And to do that we need the help of a world-class talent in this role.

This is a fantastic opportunity for someone with a creative, inquisitive and razor-sharp mindset whos oozing with ideas and obsessed with creating amazing user experiences that convert like crazy. You get annoyed when pixels arent perfect and when UXs and UIs dont make sense and scratch your head each time you purchase something personally on another website or and wonder why their checkout process is so inefficient! And the reason you chose to develop the whole enchilada package of UX/UI/CRO/design/dev skills is so that the amazing ideas bursting in your head could get implemented precisely the way you envisioned, without anybody else messing them up :-)!

Your days will be exciting and filled with variety one day you might be optimizing a quiz form in our performance funnels we use in our Google and Facebook ads another day you may be optimizing a checkout or upsell page our e-comm website another day you might be optimizing the onboarding experience in our customized app. Youre engaging with senior leadership to connect user experiences to company vision, analyzing data with our data scientists to detect success patterns and even talking to customers to gain deep insights into motivations, frustrations and barriers to success.

And heres the best part its all inside a truly meaningful mission we have at Metabolic Living: to make our metabolism-first lifestyle the worldwide standard for healthy living. Even without the current pandemic, people unnecessarily struggle with their health, confused by so many competing options that dont get results. So, weve developed a simple process anybody can follow to optimize their metabolism to deliver the energy their body needs to thrive. And weve created the full ecosystem of products to make that process as easy as possible (read more below). That means when your test ideas win, youve helped thousands of new people helped stop struggling and start thriving. That satisfaction is priceless and tremendously fulfilling as a human.

In spite of the crisis the world is in, were thriving, and in fact growing, because of the products we sell. The world was already coming to us, but the pandemic just poured rocket fuel on those trends. Our goal is to build a $1 billion dollar consumer brand by 2023 and this role will play an enormously important role in achieving that. Oh, did I mention that the company is 100% remote and always has been? This may be the opportunity you are looking for right now!

IMPORTANT: Were serious about high-performance, so our culture is built around deep work to allow uninterrupted time for the intense concentration needed to deliver world-class performance.

Who Are We and Whats the Companys Background?

Metabolic Livings mission is to empower people to thrive EVERY day so they can enjoy life to the fullest. And our vision is to do this by making our metabolism-first lifestyle become the worldwide standard for healthy living. Its a flexible, fun lifestyle thats 100% focused on delivering the results that matter: feeling your best, looking your best and performing your best. In the shortest time possible.

It puts YOU back in control. It helps YOU understand how your body and metabolism works. It empowers YOU to fix your own problems. And because it alleviates the frustration and confusion so many of us experience when trying to fix our health, it makes you want to tell the world about it.

Our goal is to grow into a billion-dollar multi-channel brand thats distributed via online, mobile and physical retail. For 10 years, weve been painstakingly building the products, services, framework, team and culture to make this happen. We have a robust, mature, complete and profitable business model with scalable customer acquisition. And now were pushing into a massive new growth phase.

Weve built a full ecosystem of products that allow someone to live a metabolism-first lifestyle. This includes exercise and nutrition programs, nutraceuticals, functional foods, memberships and coaching programs. Were launching our mobile app later this year, then will push into offline retail, extend into home-delivered meals and more. But ONE thing at a time, just like weve done for 9 years.

Our next major step is rolling out our new Metabolic Living brand and centralized e-commerce website at www.metabolicliving.com, scheduled to be live in early Q4 of 2020. We will consolidate into this centralized website our various product-branded microsites that have fueled our growth to date. The website you see there now is just a temporary one we did to be good humans to give away all of our workouts and recipes for free to help raise money for our front-line health workers.

And immediately after that well be rolling out the MVP of our true customization app one that dynamically assembles the perfect customized meals plan, workout, stress reduction, detoxification and musculoskeletal optimization plan for our audience based on our proprietary Metabolic OSTM model. And then in 2021, well be adding the machine learning and AI piece to leverage the biometrics streaming from todays wearables to dynamically optimize that plan based on how someones body is responding. Static plans are old and outdated true customization is whats needed to deliver results.

So why is a metabolism-first lifestyle needed? Because there are record amounts of sick, overweight, tired and depressed people piling up around the world. Were over-worked, over-stressed, over-fed and full of toxins. And were deprived of the sleep, nutrition, movement and relaxation we need to thrive.

Unfortunately, the typical solution of extreme dieting and exercise traps people into a 1-step-forward, 2-steps back vicious cycle that makes them worse off. They bounce from one latest flavor-of-the-month program to the next, never making progress trapped in a downward spiral of increasing desperation.

And philosophies like Paleo or Vegan, while extremely healthy for some, create a rigid us-vs-them tribal mentality thats self-limiting. Neither of those philosophies work for all people all the time or even the same person all the time. People differ. Bodies change. If thats not respected, things will backfire.

The answer? Instead of trying to FIND the perfect program, you need to CREATE their own one that respects how YOUR body works. And thats where our metabolism-first framework comes in.

It empowers you with a repeatable, customizable method to optimize your metabolism. Because weve found through working with millions of people that a fully optimized metabolism is what delivers the results everyone wants feeling their best, looking their best and performing their best, EVERY day.

So, instead of fighting against your body and getting inconsistent results with a one-size fits all program or protocol, we teach you to work with your body to enjoy consistent results by building your OWN perfect customized program. One thats practical, enjoyable and sustainable and starts working fast.
