The term **"growth hacker"** was first used in 2010 by [Sean Ellis](https://twitter.com/seanellis "") to describe a professional whose main objective is to make a given product or service grow. Andrew Chen popularised the term in his article [Growth Hacker is the new VP Marketing](http://andrewchen.co/how-to-be-a-growth-hacker-an-airbnbcraigslist-case-study/ ""), where he explains the case of Airbnb. For Chen, a growth hacker is a hybrid of a marketing professional and a programmer. In 2013, Sean Ellis created the [GrowthHackers](https://growthhackers.com/ "") community where members share knowledge, techniques and experience.
