JOB : HEAD OF MARKETING

We would love you to work with us!

* Marketing for tech platform & sales
* Shiny new role – make it your own
* Fulltime, salary commensurate with experience
* Based in beautiful Noosa

 

We are Lode

Lode is a tech Platform revolutionising the way companies find talent.  We’re a startup in the University and talent connection space with huge plans. 

Our crew is an eclectic mix of smart people who are passionate about what we do, and is led by a founder with over 20 years in big data and technology.  Working as a part of our tribe gives you the opportunity to be across everything, while owning and growing what you do.  No two days are the same!

 

Why we need you

Well, the short answer is because we are growing and need someone to tackle this stuff for us fulltime.  Slightly more info includes the fact that we don’t want to outsource this function, nor do a half baked job ourselves…  We need a pro in-house, stat.

 

The actual job

This is a seriously important role to us. Reporting to our CEO, you’ll be a part of the engine room that sits behind our platform and gets stuff done.  You will work closely with our tech and sales teams to define our marketing strategy and branding piece.  Everything we do from that point onwards links back to this.

Off the tops of our heads, we will need:

  • Marketing & social strategies
  • Branding
  • Sales campaigns
  • Lead Gen & SEO
  • Calendar of activities
  • PR & Market announcements
  • Collaboration with our external partners (Universities, large-scale employers) when needed.
  • Management of a junior resource
  • Analytics & Measurability
  • And a whole lot more that you’ll bring to the table and we haven’t thought of!

And then you’ll need to oversee the implementation of these initiatives.  This may mean building out a team, or using trusted partners.  Either way, you’re going to be all over it.  You’ll also be working with a Digital Marketing Coordinator.

As well as that, and because we are a startup, there will be a certain ‘all hands on deck’ aspect to the role as and when we work on big projects, pitches or presentations.  Or it may simply be offering a hand up to someone who needs to upskill.

This is a super meaty role and in order to get the most out of it personally, you will thrive in a busy, changeable environment.  No day is the same at Lode.

 

About you…

You are clearly creative, curious and energetic, with a really super strong eye for detail.  You have a high quality of work and are results oriented.

You will be able to lead others in order to achieve the outcomes we need.

Your can-do attitude, creative ways of working out problems, team focused, and collaborative approach works every time.

You’ll be happy to jump from one thing to another when needed.  Have we mentioned that startup environments change a LOT on any given day…?

If you are looking for a standard 9-5 office job, we categorically aren’t for you.  There will be times where we all pitch in and work hard to complete a project, then when the pressure is off, we take it easy.

 

The things you need to have

Marketing – oddly enough, our highest ranked competency is applied knowledge and experience in Marketing!  Go figure….  If we had to put it into years’ experience, we’re looking for 3-5 minimum.

Bonus points for experience in the tech/startup or education worlds, so you know what you’re walking into.

Tools – Salesforce & Pardot

Socials – strong knowledge across LinkedIn, FB, Insta, Twitter and any of the others you think we need.

We’re looking for someone with a minimum Bachelors level degree in Marketing, or equivalent experience out there in the big bad world.

 

Interested yet?

If this sounds like you, please apply here.  We don’t mind what you apply with, but it needs to showcase your skills, experience and values and ideally previous examples of work.  We’d also love you to tell us what it is about our job that resonates with you!

Side note: our recruitment process includes telephone screening and up to 2 interviews, plus a Trial Day.  If at any point you are unsuccessful, our promise to you is that we will provide you with meaningful feedback as to why, so you’re not left hanging.
