Community marketing activation software will soon be at the heart of every company's marketing stack. Our client is an early pioneer offering an innovative approach and solution that enables every company to reign full control and unlock the power of their most valuable asset: their communities.

They are looking for someone to take this to the next level and build a new standard of community marketing activation as the enterprise category leader. For their upcoming relaunch and ongoing development of their core product they need someone who is ready to build their masterpiece.

You’ll be the technical visionary with the autonomy to choose the solution stack and hire your own team over time.

The ideal candidate is a full-stack “Rockstar” but also personable and action oriented, who can manage, lead, and recruit top engineering team.

You bring confidence without attitude. Intelligence + humility = WIN.

When you work hard, you sweat excellence.
