 About Thrive

Thrive Wearables create world changing health and wellness wearable technology. We are seeking an experienced digital marketing professional to head up our Marketing operations. We’re at an exciting stage of growth, and if successful, you will play a pivotal role in ensuring Thrive maintains its position as the go-to wearable technology experts.

Why work at Thrive?

We work exclusively with clients in the health, wellbeing and fitness industries and we believe the work we do should have a positive impact on the world. We use our technical expertise to advise clients, (re)design their products, and build their roadmap for global-scale production.

As well as client work and partnership development, everyone at Thrive has the opportunity to instigate and work on our internal projects and innovations.

Our office in the heart of Brighton is surrounded by excellent shops, food options and pubs. We're a close-knit and diverse team with a shared interest in technology, health & wellbeing.

About the role

You will work with the team to shape and focus Thrive’s brand identity, and drive awareness, engagement and conversion among target audiences.

  • Have exceptional marketing and communication skills

  • Be able to use data effectively and work with other teams using data to drive decision making

  • Be a creative problem solver and seeker of opportunities

  • Be a confident team member and contributor

  • Be organised and able to prioritise to make maximum use of time and resources

  • Enjoy working in a small, but highly talented team

 This opportunity offers the chance to work in the incredibly exciting wearable and IoT technologies industry. This is a great time to join a company with big growth plans, with the aim of being a big player in the IoT market in the UK. We offer diversity within our roles and the chance for our employees to leverage our in-house expertise to take their own ideas forward. We nurture our staff to allow their talents to shine by tutoring, training, support and encouragement in their roles.
