Director of Growth Marketing

Syracuse preferred, Remote possible

We're transforming the automotive industry and we're in hyper-growth! We just received a $104MM growth equity investment. Are you hungry, driven, relentless, and entrepreneurial? Do you want to be at the forefront of SaaS, generative AI, conversational AI, and more? Ready to be in a hyper-growth environment where progress is lighting-fast, change is constant, results are immediate, and grit, inventiveness, energy, relentlessness, collaboration, and passion are mandatory? Someone who WANTS to be in the trenches, doing and creating directly as much - if not more than - they are 'directing' (as a matter of fact, much more)? If this job is for you, you're as comfortable (and passionate) about developing the best email or paid social campaign in existence as you are establishing and scaling the company's growth marketing strategy and automation capabilities; you're relentless about A/B testing, performance marketing, and data-driven decision-making; and have built demand generation and growth marketing models from the ground up and then scaled them. We're strategic, but have little time for "strategery." If titles and layers and  matrices are your thing, you may want to look elsewhere. If you want to spend your days directing and conceptualizing
while others do the work, this may not be a fit. You'll be creating, making, delivering, juggling, and flowing to the work relentlessly. Shaping strategy, building out an organization, analyzing and reporting, and evolving the brand growth marketing and demand generation strategy while you're flowing to the work in a very lean organization. And you'll have loads of fun while doing it. If that STILL sounds like you, read on!
