Marketing Director

Marketing Director

Part time (estimated 2 days a week)

About 15gifts

At 15gifts, we’re obsessed with the psychology of choice. We study the key principles that drive people to make confident choices on the high street, and we pour this insight into our intelligent decision engine technology to replicate the experience online.

We work with some of the world’s leading brands and power thousands of confident customer decisions every day. Our partners include Verizon, Vodafone, O2, Sky, Virgin Media, EE and BT.

We also love data; with every interaction, we learn more about our customers - gathering insights and generating increasingly accurate recommendations.

We’re a fast-growing company and we’re excited about the opportunities that lie ahead. We’re a team that’s made of driven and ambitious people, and we’re looking for someone to become part of our success story.


About the role

After a significant period of growth, we’re excited to be creating our first internal marketing function. Over the years, we’ve built an impressive customer base in the Telco and Media sectors, through personal networks and word of mouth. We’re proud of our brand purpose and values, however these are often not visible externally. 

We’ve recently hired a Commercial Director, and alongside this change we’re keen to build a strategic marketing plan to support the sales function in signing new customers, both in our existing sectors and potential new ones.  

We’re looking to hire a strategic leader to build out and implement a marketing strategy that supports our sales function. We imagine that this person may have previously held a Marketing Director position, or similar role in a technology business, and is now open to a part time opportunity. We're hoping to employ someone, but would also be open to working with a consultant.

The successful candidate will help us to achieve our vision to become thought leaders in the field of combining consumer psychology principles and machine learning in online interactions.

However, we will of course be following strict social distancing and health & safety guidelines for as long as is advised.
