  • Solid understanding of affiliate marketing, attribution models, and other performance marketing metrics
  • Availability to travel for face-to-face partner visits (seasonal and when safe to do so) across Europe

  • Pension Scheme: Our pension provider is The People’s Pension. We offer a minimum employee contribution of 5% and 3% employer contribution.

We want to build a world where fashion works for everyone, and we want teams that are just as inclusive. Diversity and inclusion is an integral part of our culture at Lyst. We recognise and celebrate the value and impact diversity brings to our company and are committed to ensuring this is a consistent focus, for which we are held to account.
