PPC Specialist

Share job:

We’re Left, a technology company based in the Vancouver suburb of Maple Ridge. A certified B Corp, Left is committed to “doing things right”: making our mark on the world in a positive way with technology and innovation. Our top-notch culture and award-winning Community Engagement Program have led us to be awarded “Best Workplace BC”, recognized by the BC Tech Association as the best in BC for “work, life, and play” and winner of the 2018 BambooHR Hero Award.

At the heart of our business we’re building RightMesh, a platform to connect the next billion people without infrastructure using a fully-distributed mobile mesh network for Android, IoT hardware, and other mobile devices.

Left Travel Inc., a subsidiary of Left, is made up of a small (but mighty) team which believes the search for the perfect vacation rental should be easy. We are on the hunt for a PPC Specialist to work with our Left Travel team. If you live and breathe Google AdWords and Google Analytics, and are constantly reading and researching to stay up-to-date on the latest trends, we want to meet you. We value and believe that the relationship between travellers and their hosts should be simple, comfortable, and direct. We have an extensive travel brand portfolio that includes,,,, and others. Most of your time will be spent working with these brands, analyzing the data and optimizing campaigns to make them bigger and better than they already are.

Where does all this cool stuff happen? Our space is a physical representation of our core values. With an open concept built to encourage community, including a large communal kitchen, fully equipped games room and plenty of chill spots to relax, our Lefties feel as comfy here as at home. Family is important to us, and our office provides an inclusive environment for all on our team no matter what age or stage of life.  Being in Maple Ridge, we are perfectly located for both city dwellers - only a 40 minute drive from downtown - and for those who prefer the 'burbs.

Speaking of sky-high real estate prices, you have room to breathe out here and can afford to exhale. Not only do you get greater balance in your life, but you get to keep way more of what you earn. The difference is substantial (Hint: for a family of 4, it could be more than $50,000 in your pocket every year!). Calculate how much you would save by living and working in Maple Ridge here:
