Affiliate Marketing Manager.

Austin, TX

Full time

ROUND BARN LABS

Agency/OPM

Round Barn Labs (RBL) is a fast-growing independent growth marketing consulting firm offering Growth Strategy, Analytics, Paid Marketing (Search, Social, Programmatic), and intelligent affiliate (influencer) partner marketing.

We are long-term thinkers driving impact for our clients.

RBL thinks about individual channels and the entire picture in ways typical agencies do not.

We have a more robust understanding of in-house teams and growth. Since our founding 10 years ago, we’ve worked with brands like ModCloth, Future Fitness, LiveNation, Nextdoor, Hatch, Amazon, Facebook/Meta (Portal & Oculus), Ironclad, Perk, Atlassian, Hopin, Ask, Tempo, Hatch, AXS, Puma, Ritual, and Grammarly to name a few.

We are the only affiliate agency or consulting firm that has experience working on affiliate programs for eBay (in-house), Amazon (in-house), and Facebook/Meta (agency) with a particular strong background in ECommerce, Marketplace, Health & Wellness, SaaS B2B, and Consumer Technology companies.

We can give our clients two core channels to drive holistic growth: 1) ACQUIRE Paid Social/Search/Programmatic, and 2) PARTNER Affiliate/Partner/Influencer. We collaborate with high-growth B2C e-commerce, subscription, and marketplace clients in the U.S. We’re nimble, hungry, fast-paced, and keep our distributed team happy.

Inspired by leading growth practitioners to be more than an agency, we are working with clients to unlock growth.
