Job Description

Spanish Marketing Associate


You can learn anything on Udemy.

Today, over 5 million students in 190+ countries are taking online courses on Programming, Yoga, Design, Photography, Spanish, Marketing, Guitar, Finance, Cake Decorating, and so much more.

More than 22,000 courses (in 40+ different languages!) have been published in our marketplace. Each course is designed and taught by an expert instructor and hundreds of new courses are published every month. So whether you want to advance your career, change professions, develop your personal passions or simply learn something new, Udemy is here to help you achieve your goals.

Founded in 2010, Udemy has raised a total of $48 million in venture capital and is headquartered in San Francisco, California.



We're a small but growing team with a big mission -- to help anyone learn anything, online. We're looking for folks who are incredibly hungry, passionate, smart, fun, scrappy, (we could go on :-)) to help us achieve that mission.

We already have more than 320 published instructors and more than 1,500 courses in Spanish, a figure that has doubled in the last 6 months. With the rapid growth we need someone fluent in Spanish and English who can help accelerate the sales of our Spanish content and help making our Spanish instructors more successful.

This position will be focused on growing Udemy’s sales in Spanish speaking countries. There are three main areas in which we will ask you to focus:

Establish Local Partnerships with Spanish Speaking Channels -- you will need to familiarize with the Spanish courses we offer and find the rights channels to position them. You will need to be find the right partners to work with: affiliates, blogs, deal sites, Youtube channels, etc.  For instance, how can we sell our tech courses to the readers of the most popular tech blog in Spain? What is the biggest deal site in Mexico that we should be working with? Is there a popular Youtuber we can partner with to promote a drawing course on Udemy?

Work with Instructors to Promote via Their Own Channels -- you will need to advise our instructors about best strategies for them to market their courses and drive revenue. You will do this both through one on one conversations for the high potential instructors as well as through the creation of blog posts, Faculty Lounge in Spanish, podcast… to help all other instructors.

Work with the Student Marketing Team to Launch New Initiatives to Increase Spanish Sales -- you will need to work together with our marketing team and help create and launch campaigns both for user acquisition as well as targeted at our existing Spanish user base.

You will need to be creative, hands on, eager to work on multiple projects and able to change focus quickly. You’ll also need to be a rigorous prioritizer. There’s so much we can do and you’ll need to be focused and razor sharp as you choose tactics with the highest ROI.  And last but not least, you will need to be a hustler in order to get the attention of the right partners that allow us to put Udemy courses in front of the right audience.

You’ll have the opportunity to have a huge impact on Udemy’s rapidly growing Spanish business.
