Senior SEO And Growth Marketing Manager

Posted May 20

Khan Academy is a nonprofit organization on a mission to provide a free, world-class education to anyone, anywhere. We already reach millions of students every month and are growing rapidly, and right now we’re hard at work helping learners address any unfinished learning that the COVID-19 pandemic may have caused. We also know that not all communities have been impacted equally by this pandemic, which makes our work focusing on providing equitable solutions to historically under-resourced communities even more important.


Our students, teachers, and parents come from all walks of life and so do we. We are fun, diverse, quirky people that come from a variety of backgrounds. Our team includes people from academia and from high tech companies and tiny startups. We hire great people from diverse backgrounds and experiences, not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because it makes our company stronger. Valuing diversity, equity and inclusion is necessary for us to actualize our mission and truly impact the communities we serve. We believe that the best way to provide impactful education is to create a diverse team of people from different backgrounds, races, religions, genders, sexual orientations, ages, and experiences. We’re a hardworking team that’s passionate about helping learners and teachers around the globe! We strive to be world class in investing in our people and commit to developing you as a professional.

We’re looking for an experienced Senior SEO and Growth Marketing Manager to play a leading role in helping Khan Academy find, retain, and engage with learners, teachers, and district administrators.

  • Manage key conversion points in the marketing funnel, including landing pages and website calls-to-action (CTAs). Continually measure and optimize the performance of these conversion assets.
  • Keep pace with SEO, search engine, social media and digital marketing industry trends and developments.

What you bring:

About the team:

Each member of the marketing team has a lot of impact and makes huge contributions. We come from a wide variety of backgrounds from kindergarten teachers to Fulbright scholars. Team members have worked in marketing for ecommerce, nonprofit organizations, and other edtech companies. Half of the team is based in the Bay Area and the other half is distributed across the East and West coasts from Massachusetts to Arizona so we operate in a creative distributed-friendly way.
