Digital Marketing Lead, Lupa


Radio Ambulante is an award-winning narrative podcast that tells uniquely Latin American stories in Spanish. Presented by renowned Peruvian author Daniel Alarcón and distributed by National Public Radio (NPR), Radio Ambulante engages talented radio producers, journalists and illustrators from Spanish-speaking communities and regions across the Americas to bring quality longform journalism to the radio.

In September 2019, Radio Ambulante, in partnership with Silicon Valley ed tech company Jiveworld, SPC, launched Lupa as a mobile app for intermediate Spanish learners to develop “listening fluency” using Radio Ambulante stories and a suite of tools based on the Jiveworld Method.

Our Lupa launch team has developed brand assets as well as a GTM strategy with a well defined timeline and milestones. We are seeking an experienced, digitally savvy marketing professional to help refine our materials and execute the marketing plan, identify and measure KPIs, suggest course corrections, and keep us on track towards reaching our target audience and specific sales and subscription goals for Lupa. Ultimately, our candidate will share, and help us realize, Radio Ambulante’s vision of breaking the language barrier between Latin America and those who don’t yet fully understand real-world Spanish.
