What you'll be doing

Your objective will be revenue generation. We want our marketing function to generate a high quality revenue pipeline and deal flow through leveraging various strategies including content marketing, SEO, community management, events, and webinars.

To achieve these two aims we think your duties may include:

  • developing a creative, data and results driven marketing strategy that has a particular focus on digital marketing, content marketing, and product marketing. This strategy will be iterative - part of the role will be finding out what works in driving engagement with our target audience and adapting the marketing strategy to drive this engagement.
  • implementing the marketing strategy. You will have resources at your disposal to help implement the strategy (including budget to hire relevant team members) but as a small team you will also be pivotal in delivering all of the marketing activities that the strategy encompasses.
  • measuring the impact of various activities within the strategy. You will be required to use data to drive insights into what is working and what isn't and will need to be able to pivot away from any activities that aren't effective towards ones that are.
  • solving any marketing related challenges. You will be the subject matter expert within the company on all things marketing and will be required to solve any challenges the marketing strategy uncovers.
  • managing the marketing budget and building out a marketing team in line with the Risk Ledger growth plans. Managing the team to ensure they are delivering against the Risk Ledger business goals.

The opportunity for growth is as big as your ambition! You will be a pivotal hire, helping to build a company that will change the security industry for the better. We have big ambitions at Risk Ledger and we expect you to have the same.
