What is a Growth Marketer?

Think about popular products or services like Netflix, DoorDash, Dropbox, or your favorite app.

If you’re like most people, you use them without thinking too much about what goes on under the hood.
But they weren't always so popular. As seen above, Dropbox only had a handful of users in 2008 (image credit: Sumo).

How did those popular services get traction?

How do they determine the price of what they're selling?

Hell, how do they know what notifications to send people and when?

This is where Growth Marketers come in.
They're are experts at growing companies by acquiring, retaining, and engaging users.

They do this through a mix of disciplines such as marketing, programming, data analysis, sales, among others.

Basically a Growth Marketer is like a regular marketer, but on steroids.
A Growth Marketer knows how to...
Run Instagram ads (or TikTok, Snapchat, etc.) ads to acquire customers at a profitable cost.
Optimize the social media feed for an app in order to maximize user engagement.
Test different coupon codes over email to maximize profit for an e-commerce campaign
Determine what makes users stick around by writing SQL queries to parse a database.

Growth Marketing School

How It Works

Our Growth School is a full-time program that lasts 13 weeks.

It gives you the foundational knowledge, real-world projects, and resume experience that you'll need to work as a growth marketer immediately afterwards.

Unlike college, we're cost-efficient and 100% outcome based--we only succeed if you are successfully employed as a growth marketer.

The program is broken up into two parts, with a gateway exam in between.


We'll teach you everything you need to know to think like a Growth Marketer and use the language of growth, tech, and business.

The tools that people use will change over time, but the fundamentals you learn will never change.
