We are looking for an experienced, positive and quietly confident Marketing Director to join VINAYA: a vibrant design and technology startup based in Shoreditch, London (and soon California). We create ‘smart’ (i.e. electronic) and beautifully-designed products that enhance well being in the digital age.
Our first line ALTRUIS is a collection of designer wearable technology that lets the user filter their smartphone notifications so they can avoid distraction whilst remaining connected to the most important things. Our mission is to use technology to facilitate a more holistic (and accurate) approach to well being, and design technology in such a way that it makes us more human, not less.
We are a young, innovative, and fast-growing tribe of curious minds, representing 18 countries and speaking over 30 languages collectively. The team is made up of hardware and software engineers, data scientists, product designers, neuroscientists, strategists and creatives, working together to design less obtrusive, beautiful technology that is deeply rooted in scientific, human insight.
Our home is VINAYA House, a 3-storey converted church in the heart of trendy Shoreditch. We champion daily mid-afternoon ‘silence’ breaks to switch off, Friday drinks, and team lunches.
We require a diligent and proactive Marketing Director, with a mix of creative-visionary and strategic execution skills, who will report directly to the CEO. Forming one fifth of the senior management, you will be responsible for managing a team of 7 people. Your role will entail being the final filter of the whole frontline (sales, marketing, partnerships and creative) team, before being passed through the CEO. This will require attention to detail, and a fast understanding of what the CEO expects to see in terms out output from your team. You will be set 3-5 quarterly objectives, and then you will be expected to work autonomously and manage your team independently (using the CEO for support where required). You will need to be geographically flexible, being based in London, but with travel to LA, SF and NY.
Recruitment jargon aside, we’re looking for someone passionate about our brand and our mission. Someone who loves the idea of combining fashion, design, science and technology. Someone who isn’t afraid to take risks and make decisions quickly with limited information. And someone who is excited at the possibility of being given autonomy to negotiate deals, pull in partners, help steer the direction of this business, and essentially act like a founder.
Please send your cover letter and CV to email@example.com - we can’t wait to hear from you!
