PaaySay Marketing Officer
We need our Marketing Officer to be able to lead customer acquisition and retention from ground up. PaaySay is looking for a growth-obsessed marketer to take ownership of developing and executing the PaaySay brand in our core Markets. Working to drive growth, you'll create and lead your team, and build-out new capabilities across the whole mix in multiple markets. The PaaySay brand will be a huge asset to us - it is what will set us apart from the competition and incumbents. It is the manifestation of our mission, and this is not a job for the faint hearted. First and foremost we want to be famous, and famously loved, for rewriting the remittance history book. Cheap money transfer this ain't.
But we're not looking for a classic brand marketer. We need more than that. This is about building a global brand that turns our global community of users into an army of word-spreaders. It's about managing a tone that takes it right to the line, but never too far, fighting the establishment on behalf of the people with both digital and traditional media as your toolkit. And a higher level of intellect. And at your heart, you're an entrepreneur.
You a Marketing GURU, mad scientist of consumer marketing space and driven by high ambition to be part of one of the biggest FinTech revolution.
We are really passionate about what we are doing and aim to disrupt the international payments space. You would work in a fast paced environment with a global team from HP, HSBC, Warwick Business School, Imperial College, Queen Mary University (and many more)
Viral growth is the single most important element of our growth model. You'll take charge of growing the level of evangelism amongst our customers in a way that delights, surprises and deepens their love for the brand.
You'll bring and grow channels, always focussing on ROI and size of opportunity. It's a direct response mindset, but we're also building a brand here. You'll deploy a significant media budget to scale and grow the business within specific audiences (e.g. ethnic communities, students, expats), and across mass media channels. You'll oversee creative production and be responsible for ensuring tone and message are spot on.
Experiential, stunts, campaigns, social media, buzz
We will set a high bar with a string of successful stunts and content marketing campaigns - these drive customers to feel closer to brand, establish our challenger status and help grow our awareness. We believe that going forward this is key to our fame, but as we scale into new markets, the creativity needs to be sky-high, and the execution pin-point.
Testing and growing new channels
The playbook needs to be written, and there's a long way to grow. You'll have freedom, resources and headcount to try whatever you want, and to work with other teams (e.g. Product) to drive hyper growth.
