Life at AWA

We are always looking for talented, experienced people and we hire from all over the world.

Why work with us?

Work on stimulating projects from anywhere in the world, using the best tools, supported by a team of specialists. While our focus on creating results for our clients is unrelenting, we believe in having fun doing that. Work must be enjoyable, and we are super flexible in our approach. That might mean working from one of our offices, your own home, the beach or on top of Table Mountain in Cape Town.

What sort of work will you be doing

Your task is to help your client’s business grow in demonstrable ways by being truly user-centric and applying our CRO methodology. Your clients are demanding businesses from around the world from household names like Canon and Avis, to Woolworths in South Africa, to famous Shark Tank entrepreneurs in the States.

What can you expect from us?

You’ll be coming into a rapidly-expanding business, where there is a constant stream of stimulating projects and lots of opportunities for you to develop and grow. As an agency we invest heavily in our people.

Every 90 days the entire team gets together. It’s a chance for you to meet your colleagues face-to-face, celebrate success, learn from each other as well as external speakers like Roger Dooley, Nathalie Nahai, Dr. David Lewis, Dr. Joe Gladstone and Leah Pica.

Your colleagues are some of the most accomplished CRO practitioners in the world. The team includes published authors, business turnaround CEO’s, Oxford Maths graduates, growth hackers, MBA lecturers and ex-international marketing directors.

What we’re looking for in you

Your track record of results optimising websites and mobile experiences speaks for itself. You have hands on experience of the whole CRO process from research, analysis and prioritisation to ideating, wireframing, briefing, QA, babysitting, concluding, analysing and reporting on split tests


  • Are a brilliant communicator, both verbally and in writing
  • Are naturally curious to find the right answers to a problem through research
  • Enjoy learning and are on a constant path to self-development
  • Have the courage to challenge conventional thinking and be challenged yourself
  • Enjoy data and using it to persuade others to take action
  • Have personality and a sense of humour

Our seven-stage application process

Our optimisers are some of the best in the world and work for the most demanding companies. We only recruit experienced people (last year we only made 2 hires), not recent grads of online courses.

Finding this type of talent is tough, so we have a thorough and challenging application process. If you think you meet all the criteria listed above, click on this link to be taken to Stage One of the process.
