Director of Marketing

Are you looking for the challenge of scaling a brand new ecosystem from its earliest adopters to reach billions of people while working amidst one of the top teams in the world?  Our client seeking our Head of Marketing to own the marketing roadmap for building out the developer and entrepreneur ecosystem.  

Our client is a developer platform which requires a B2D2C market fit so early efforts will focus on engaging the developer community through events, content, and education. Later efforts will apply these at scale by engaging the global community to help spread the message from the grassroots up. Key prongs will be community engagement and content but the core metrics of protocol adoption and usage are ultimately the most important.

This is a very high ownership position and the outcomes are very visible.  You will have to wear a lot of hats along the path to building a team while inspiring them with your ability to execute.  You will excel if you're a highly communicative leader who has strong experience building growth teams for developer-focused startups, a killer instinct for hacking growth and a strong get-shit-done quotient.

To be explicitly clear, this is a position for someone with significant experience in developer-focused startups and not someone who has optimized a career for executing a single channel, who prefers to strategize rather than execute or who is uncomfortable being challenged every day.  On the other hand, if you become your best self when you’re given a set of difficult mission objectives but an empty canvas on which to paint your way to them, this might be a fit for you.

Key Requirements

  • A clear track record of world-class performance in growth or marketing leadership roles in technical startups. Your background should clearly demonstrate excellence.
  • Blazing intelligence, curiosity and a technical mindset.  Demonstrated passion for blockchain and developer ecosystems.
  • Experience building and leading marketing teams in dynamic startup environments, ideally those with a strong developer/community/ecosystem component.
