Circle is building the modern community platform for every creator and brand in the world: think "Shopify for creator/brand-led communities". We make it really easy for creators and brands to bring their discussions, members, and content all into one place. Circle is a product-led company, with thousands of paying customers.
The Growth Marketing Lead is a brand new role on our team — and will be responsible for standing up our new lifecycle marketing function here at Circle. You will own and oversee performance across the entire customer lifecycle and funnel — from website traffic all the way through to a new lead becoming a paying customer. Your main goal: drive growth by delivering a cohesive customer experience by moving more of our leads through each step of the lifecycle.
This person will collaborate cross-functionally with the wider marketing and sales team to build beautiful campaigns that drive growth. In addition to being a highly analytical self-starter, you’ll be able to think both strategically and enjoy rolling up your sleeves to execute.
This is a 100% remote role. We're now a fully remote team of 65 (and growing!) based in the U.S., Colombia, Portugal, India, Argentina, Slovenia, and other countries. We have a preference for candidates in U.S. and European time zones.
