This role is absolutely central to the success of Osper's expansion into the US and globally.

You will continually refine the strategy, execute the tactical plan and drive towards both top and bottom of funnel success metrics.
You will be asked to take leadership roles in Osper's social and PR channels to serve both customer and corporate messaging goals.
You will also be tasked with educating internal product teams and external partner institutions on the needs and behaviors of young people, parents and educators who want young people to learn how to be financially responsible..

You believe in learning by doing, particularly when it comes to teaching young people about money.
You have naturally strong editorial skills and a keen sense for establishing and adhering to a distinctive brand voice.
You are an outgoing, master organizer when it comes to immersing yourself and curating a community to rally interest and peer to peer support behind a movement like teaching young people about money.
You have rock solid instincts, if not direct experience, in user acquisition/funnel management which allows you to measure impact and methodically prioritize community development tactics.
You are a scrappy self-starter who can excel in an unstructured environment, which includes a steady cadence of experimentation and post-mortem evaluation, and also entails navigating several geographies and time zones daily.
You have at least 5 years experience in a related community or general marketing role, ideally with a technology company and/or in the education or financial services field.
