Operations Director

We're a digital-first sales & marketing agency for B2B SaaS, technology & IT companies. Using a combination of content marketing, SEO, automation, paid media and market understanding, we fuel our customers sales & marketing efforts and accelerate growth.

5 years into our journey, we’ve been growing consistently 30-50% year on year and now find ourselves 35 people strong and ready to push on to the next stage of our own growth.

Reporting directly to the founders, we have created an opportunity for an ambitious, experienced individual to join our exec team to manage and shape our team of digital marketing experts (think Design, Development, Content, Paid, Martech and more) so that we can continue to do amazing things for our customers at scale. There is only so much we can articulate about the opportunity here, so if you think it’s a challenge you can attack and want to learn more about the journey you could be part of - apply now and we’ll set up a Zoom to get to know each other.
