Stoked on a drive that just won’t quit, we’ve got a one-track mind to get better every damn day. So, hell-bent on self-improvement, we changed our name to groove even better with the market and our partners.
Our roots, though? They’re not going anywhere!

We’re all about spreading warmth to foster trust and employing data to cast light on our operations. Just a snapshot of our ethos to give you a glimpse of the magic backstage.

Our rap sheet is overflowing with wins and hard-earned experience optimizing revenue across the entire customer journey. With specialized knowledge and hands-on capabilities, we’ve covered the tech stack management from A to Z.

Enter McGaw s first Chief Operating Officer (COO)
You’ll be the trusty sidekick to our energetic Founder/CEO, Dan McGaw (linkedin.com/in/danielmcgaw).
Now, let’s set the record straight.
Getting your tango on with Dan, a tattoo-sporting, high-octane, straight- talking CEO/founder, ain’t a cakewalk.
With over 20 years of trailblazing as a founder, Dan’s got the tenacity to challenge you every single day. Expect spirited debates and all-round brainstorming to ensure we’re generating the best ideas, not just the first ones that pop into our heads.
Dan might be an adrenaline junkie with a penchant for cranking up the volume, but don’t let his punk-rock veneer fool you. He’s as warm-hearted as they come, always the first to lend a hand when his team, friends, and clients find themselves in a jam.

**So, you’re curious about the kinda superpowers you need to possess to
nail this gig, huh?**
Well, we’re talking about a resume as jam-packed as a Thanksgiving turkey, with 15+ years in digital and operations, preferably running at full tilt in a MarTech, analytics, or revops agency. Add to that, a decade being the boss, and half of that time mastering the financial side of custom integrations and services delivery.
Four years of strutting your stuff in C-level roles will do nicely, thank you.
It’s not enough to just understand the marketing tech landscape – we need you to know it like the back of your hand: products, services, architecture, platforms, the whole enchilada.
You should have more experience in process improvement than a 5-star chef has recipes. Agile? We’d love a sprinkle of that! You should also have a head for figures that’d make a seasoned accountant green with envy.
If you can sniff out problems like a bloodhound and forecast potential issues like a seasoned weatherman, you’re on the right track. Your learning curve should be steeper than Mount Everest and your problem-solving skills sharper than a ninja’s choice weapon. Remaining as cool as a cucumber under pressure and beaming positivity like a 100-watt bulb are just par for the course here.
Being a whizz at handling multiple complex projects, a go-getter who takes initiative, and someone who doesn’t buckle under deadlines is who we’re looking for. Your interpersonal skills should be as smooth as a Shakespearean sonnet, and you need to have a knack for diffusing a tense situation like a bomb disposal expert.
Qualifications: What Have You Got Up Your Sleeve?
As for qualifications that make us go weak in the knees: Experience in a tech startup smaller than a hive of bees, or a large company bigger than a bustling city; expertise working remotely and leading a virtual tribe; international business experience and working in a high-octane, high-growth company would make our hearts skip a beat.
Now, onto the scorecard of success
After three months of stretching your superpowers, we’re hoping for a 10% boost in client satisfaction and retention, a 5% hike in project profitability, and a 10% improvement in labor efficiency. You’ll also be masterminding our growth management meetings and laying down some cool hiring plans.
Six months in, and we’re looking for client revenue expansion to go up by 10%,
Project profitability and labor efficiency to get a 10% and 20% leg-up respectively.
We’re also hoping to see you whip up some repeatable upsell and cross-sell processes.
A year later, with you at the helm, we should see:
A 15% rise in project profitability,
20% improvement in labor efficiency, and
An awe-inspiring 50% increase in new hire retention.
And just for fun, YoY revenue growth of 50%.
Our Benefits Are the Cherry On Top of This Sweet Gig
We’re talking flexible hours, remote work (U.S.-based superheroes only), competitive salary with profit sharing, a radically transparent workplace, and an open-door policy for your genius ideas. Plus, unlimited PTO, Starbucks and Uber Eats monthly allowances, 3% 401k contribution, top-tier health insurance, parental leave, snazzy tech gear for remote setup, and a bunch of paid holidays.
Oh, and the chance to become a beacon of knowledge in the marketing tech community. And a learning curve that makes Mount Everest look like a bunny slope. Phew!

As our linchpin, you’ll partner with the client services team and their clients to churn out win-win outcomes for both them and McGaw.
While the CEO will take the wheel for sales, marketing, and new customer acquisition, you’ll be the trusted lieutenant. Supporting the CEO with sales/revenue growth, overseeing the Sales Director to expand our current client projects is your gig.

During Your Second 3 Months:
In this phase, you’ll implement your hiring plans, spruce up organizational charts, and revamp financial planning to double the company’s revenue in the next year. You’ll join forces with the CEO to tweak and optimize the company’s 3-year plan to achieve at least 50% YoY revenue growth.
After Your First 6 Months:
By now, you should be totally rocking the services team and business operations, freeing up the CEO to zero in on sales, marketing, and recruiting. You’ll have your fingers on the pulse of McGaw and be ready to take it to the next level!
