Job description

We’re now looking for a passionate and driven Growth/Marketing Director or Manager to further scale our growth efforts and help our customers succeed. This is an excellent opportunity for an ambitious professional looking to become a key player in a fast-growing, yet highly profitably, international business

Our software can be taken into use within minutes from a technical point-of-view and we aim to provide our customers all the tools and the material they need to succeed without ever having to talk to us (although we love to do so) and most of it's free too. It's this unrelented focus on value-creation that enables us to build a scalable business and our growth team plays a huge role in achieving that.

Your role would simply be to figure out and implement scalable ways for us to acquire and convert leads and grow the business as fast as possible, while still remaining profitable.

As our marketing is very content-driven, your job would also include creating and curating value-adding content for our buyer personas, be it in the form of blog posts, case stories, or product marketing material.

This is obviously quite a comprehensive challenge, so you won’t be left alone to deal with it but will have the full support of our team for doing that. You won’t be starting from scratch either as we already have highly effective systems in place for marketing automation, a massive content library, and an ever growing stream of inbound leads.

This position will require you to be an analytical thinker capable of quickly solving problems on the fly, be they related to our own growth strategy or to figuring out ways to help our customers. You should also be a prolific writer, and have an eye for visuals. However, succeeding in this job will take more than just thinking about the big picture. You’ll need to be willing and able to do the footwork to make those visions a reality. 


We require you to:
 

  • Have excellent communication skills, both written and verbal, in English. Fluent communication in other widely used languages are a plus.
  • Not be afraid of taking and carrying responsibility
  • Have a proactive mind-set and relentless drive to make things happen
  • Be an analytical and talented problem solver
  • Have an eye for visual content
  • Take pride in the quality of your work and the value you deliver to customers
  • Be passionate about learning new skills and improving your game
  • Be a true team player, and not be afraid to get your hands dirty
  • Ideally, understand and have skills in one or more of the following:
    • Online, inbound or product marketing
    • Content creation and graphic design
    • Growth hacking
    • Management consulting

We can offer you: 

  • An opportunity to grow into a key player in a fast-growing start-up
  • A chance to impact the way we operate and grow as a company
  • Flexibility to shape your role and the way you work
  • Mentoring to help you become a marketing superstar
  • An unrivalled start-up company culture in a professional surrounding
  • New office in Keilaniemi with a gym, sauna, and a view of the sea
  • Competitive salary and option plans

We believe that the best people aren’t necessarily the ones with the most experience but the most burning desire to always learn more and get better at what they do. If you have a passion for making a real impact with your work, we’d like you to join us on our journey to help companies all over the world become more innovative!
