OLX Nigeria is looking for a User Acquisition Manager

by | Jun 30, 2015

Refusing to be fazed by the recent ‘OLX Nanny’ fiasco, OLX is looking to expand operations in Nigeria by hiring a new User Acquisition Manager.

The job description entails leading all aspects of customer relationship management including customer outreach, sales, support and partnerships, primarily relating to the vehicles section of the site. For this, you are required to have deep knowledge of the auto industry and vehicles available in the Nigerian market.


If you ask me, it looks like a perfect job for educated auto dealer apprentices, looking to break into the white collar space, or even unoccupied enthusiasts from the Nairaland auto section. However, OLX has opted for Economics, Business and MBA degrees as filters for applicants. I find it odd that whilst looking for someone with first hand experience in the local auto industry, they expect the person to have “experience using data analysis applications like Excel and Process design tools”.

I’m not sure how many people will meet all the criteria but, if there’s anything we’ve learnt about job listings, it’s that most of these requirements are just a way of reducing the number of applications they have to sift through. So, qualifications and requirements notwithstanding, if you feel you have what it takes to fit the primary job description, you can apply here.
