CMO / VP of Marketing - Toronto at TradeGecko
Toronto, CA
Here at TradeGecko, we’re helping commerce entrepreneurs build amazing businesses, by building the world’s leading order and inventory management platform that's redefining B2B commerce operations, connecting the global supply chain and making boring business software a thing of the past.

We’re always being asked how we’ve gotten such quick traction in the market and the answer is simple….we hire relentlessly resourceful individuals, hackers, freethinkers and people that make it their mission to make our customers even more awesome.

TradeGecko was founded and is HQ'd in Singapore, we also have offices in Manila, Philippines, and Toronto, Canada. With this role we intend to continue to focus on growing our North American efforts and are looking for a great marketing leader to join our growing, global company.

A deep understanding of SaaS, inbound marketing, marketing funnels, demand generation and the experience to build and scale a marketing organization based on critical SaaS metrics.

Do you believe that the vast realm of marketing (incl. Brand, PR, Comms etc) is the single most important tool that a company must leverage to distinguish itself and become wildly successful? Are you looking for the opportunity to create and lead a best-in-class marketing organisation within the the SaaS market? If yes, then this may be the role for you.

We’re currently seeking a visionary with a deep understanding of traditional and innovative marketing strategies and a proven track record of creating campaigns and initiatives to drive and increase customer acquisition. This is not a role for the faint-hearted. You will be rolling up your sleeves while you help to build, mentor, drive, and elevate our talented marketing team, and TradeGecko, to the next level.

Historically our growth has come from Inbound marketing, our relationships with other fantastic platforms; Xero, Shopify etc., and through some strategic SEM. We want to improve and scale what has worked in marketing and build an experimental machine to test all of the other strategies we could adopt to drive customer growth.
