Far Homes: Search Engine Marketing Manager

Posted February 2024

About Far Homes

At Far Homes, our mission is to make buying a home in any other country as easy as buying a home down the street. Founded by experienced real estate technology executives in the US, we’re currently active in Mexico, where we’ve connected thousands of homebuyers to a network of local real estate agents to help them find their dream home.

About the Role

We’re seeking a Search Engine Marketing Manager with battle-tested SEM expertise, strong analytical skills, and entrepreneurial drive to take over paid search efforts from our co-founder and to help us scale the business (by a lot). You’ll be Far Homes’ first Paid Growth hire, and your objective will be to hit our ambitious paid acquisition goals while maintaining a disciplined grip on contribution margin. 


We’re looking for someone who knows from experience all the ins and outs of how to build and optimize SEM campaigns/systems and who steps up to independently drive our paid acquisition efforts forward. You’ll build and manage the campaigns day-to-day and will also define and execute the roadmap for building a world-class SEM machine from scratch.

What you’ll do

  • Scale our SEM efforts from humble beginnings to becoming an acquisition powerhouse.
  • Manage day-to-day search marketing operations. Set up campaigns, optimize bid strategies, ad copy, landing pages and more.
  • Define and implement the roadmap for continuous experimentation to drive growth and optimize cost per acquisition.
  • Analyze data to drive business decisions & results. You’ll watch daily campaign performance like a hawk, conduct analysis on experiment results using data from a variety of sources, and help define the metrics that guide us as we continue to scale.
  • Collaborate with product/engineering to prioritize and implement tech that gives us the fastest path to SEM success at scale.

What it takes to succeed

  • 3+ years of experience using Google Adwords with large non-brand keyword portfolios and a 6-figure or higher monthly search budget required. Experience scaling a budget substantially is a huge plus.
  • Deep understanding of automated search bidding strategies including tCPA & tROAS required.
  • Ability to make experience-backed, well-scoped recommendations for what SEM systems/tech we should implement to hit our goals.
  • Exceptional analytical skills, including a reflex to anchor analysis to why it matters for the business and the ability to make decisions with imperfect or limited data. Advanced abilities in Excel/Google Sheets is a must.
  • Excitement to work at a startup and the scrappiness that comes with it. You’re a ruthless prioritizer, enjoy wearing many hats, love to figure out how to do more with less, and are comfortable constructing things with a bit of duct tape and glue. 
  • You always have contribution profit in mind. Sure you’re an SEM expert, but you can think like a CFO.
  • Bonus: experience with other paid channels. We’re focused first and foremost on hiring someone who’s stellar with paid search marketing. But if you’re also someone with the appetite and skills to spin up and grow paid marketing across multiple channels, that’s a big plus.

Some reasons you may want to join our small team:

  • Build from the ground up: If you’ve ever wanted to create something phenomenal from an early stage, this is your shot. Our team is small and each person is critical in shaping our future.
  • Remote-first, four-day workweek, and an emphasis on balance: Balance is baked into our company’s DNA as much as hard work, and we’re excited to offer a remote-first culture and four day workweeks. This is a core part of Far Homes. So is a culture of ownership, hard work, and ambition. “Balance” to us means holding both these truths at the same time; there will be weeks that require less work, and times when, to be successful, you’ll have to put in extra time or respond to texts/calls/emails outside of normal working hours.
  • Benefits: Salary ($90K -$115K USD) and equity. 100% employer-paid-for medical insurance (50% for dependents). Dental and vision insurance. 2 weeks of PTO, unlimited sick days. 

Other important info

If you’re excited about this role, we’d love for you to apply even if your experience doesn’t perfectly match! We believe it’s the unique experiences, diverse backgrounds, and different ways of thinking that make a great team, so you may be the right candidate for this role even if you don’t check every box on the list.

This is a full-time, US-based remote role. However, because we get together every 4-8 weeks in-person in Seattle, being within a 2-3 hour flight’s distance is strongly preferred.
