Does performance-based marketing across multiple influencer and affiliate networks get your tail wagging? Do you have publisher affiliate relationships that have lasted longer than your real-life relationships? Bark & Co. is a fast-growing business for people who are obsessed with dogs and we're looking for an Affiliate Marketing Manager to help take things to the next level.

As the Affiliate Marketing Manager, you'll own our performance-based marketing programs across the Bark & Co commerce universe (BarkBox + BarkShop). Our network of CPA-based Instagram, publisher and influencer affiliates needs a steady hand to manage strategy, relationship building and campaign management.
