Levels: Senior Marketing Manager, Partnerships Lead, Director of Marketing
Listen, if you’re reading this, there’s a really good chance you already know what is expected from a true Senior Marketing Manager.
You essentially need to:
- Tell great stories
- Grow the brand
- Drive new users (and revenue)
- And as we grow, recruit, hire, and coach the marketing team
- While spending countless hours cleaning data, tweaking copy/emails/landing pages, living in spreadsheets and Google Analytics, and finding that one misfiring Zap that broke your latest campaign’s automation….a lot of unsexy work
Below you’ll find some specific bullet points of what’s expected (more leads, pipeline, revenue, etc.), and what marketing channels you’ll be responsible for (we’re 100% inbound--all the usual channels), but here’s ultimately what really matters to be successful in this role:
Full Funnel Marketing and Growth:
- Design Zion’s marketing campaigns to meet specific marketing objectives based around three core goals:
- Top of funnel: increase brand awareness and social engagement
- Middle of funnel: grow the Zion email list and Telegram community
- Bottom of funnel: continually convert interested community members into paying Zion customers
- Work with the executive and marketing teams to plan, schedule and execute these campaigns to meet the stated goals
Own the Relationship With Creators and Influencers
- Own the relationships with creators on the Zion app, navigating their organizations they lead to educate key partner contacts about Zion’s value proposition with their audiences.
- Expand current relationships with creators to get product feedback and improve adoption and use. If successful, relationships and partnerships should last forever
- Innovate on how we encourage influencers to build communities on Zion
Interfacing With Product Team
- Listen to our Creators and Influencers about what they like about the app and what else they’d like to see built. Then translate those requests into strategic feedback to our product and engineering teams. When requested features get built into the app, communicate that back to our broader Creator community, and specifically to the Creators who requested those features.
- Be comfortable with business and marketing language as well as technical language
- Recruit and manage a high-performing team, defining its operating model, goals, KPIs and build this entire org from the ground up
- This will include doing the work before you have a the full team built
You may be a fit for this role if you have:
- Excellent verbal and written communication skills, and the ability to represent Zion effectively in interfacing with creators & executives
- 7-10+ years of relevant experience, with a background in strategy, Marketing & Advertising, Influencer Marketing and Community Building.
- A focus on building & developing lasting marketing campaigns that will allow the brand to endure for years to come.
- A proven track record of leading high-performing teams in a product-centric environments
- Broad and deep experience designing industry-wide marketing strategies.
- An operationally focused mindset, with an ability to see a deal far beyond signing, and to lead/influence teams developing and implementing plans to realize the intended benefits of partnerships pursued
Not required, but a bonus if you have:
- Experience in working with open source projects
- Experience in working with decentralized networks, Bitcoin, Lightning Network, consensus protocols, smart contracts, blockchains, etc.
