(Not A) Head of Marketing

Job description

You have a great talent for making an impact? Mailbird is willing to give you the opportunity to challenge yourself!

We're looking for our next team leader to make an impact on the Marketing side at Mailbird, and are ready to offer our next hire the environment to make it happen.

We're not looking for a regular Head of Marketing. We're looking at giving a creative and out-of-the-box thinking talent the opportunity to (litterally) send Mailbird to the Moon. 

You will be responsible for initiating, driving, and implementing marketing initiatives that make an impact, and to set Mailbird on the path to 1 million paid users.

We're a fast-moving, award-winning company that focuses on making email management as easy and enjoyable as it can be, especially in a multi-email accounts context. Currently on Windows, but we’re working on a cross platform version, to be released first on macOS, then Windows and later to mobile devices.

At Mailbird we value impact, being data and experiment driven, learning, collaboration and having fun while doing it. With 20 nationalities located all over the world, you will find yourself in a truly and fully remote international environment, where engagement, values, and job satisfaction are goals of equal importance to the financial goals of the company.

If this feels like a fit, and if you're able to come up with crazy ideas and get things done, we would be extremely pleased to have you join our team of Mailbirdians!
