Growth Partner / Fractional Head of Marketing
Why work with us
Kilonova is a boutique marketing and strategy advisory firm focused on supporting projects across Blockchain Infrastructure, DeFi, Web3 and the Metaverse.
We exist to support the blitzscaling efforts of visionary leaders that can push decentralization, self-sovereignty and conscious capitalism forward.
As serial entrepreneurs ourselves, we understand that pioneering bleeding edge technology, building a rockstar distributed team, figuring out product market fit, fostering a vibrant community and raising capital - at the same time - is really hard. So we join founders and their projects early, accept responsibility for narrative formation, building out critical brand touchpoints, hiring and training the marketing team, and generating traction in the shape of community growth, lead generation and investment commitments in the early stage startups we advise.
Our mission is to empower and accelerate these nascent projects around the world, with the vision that by doing so we can help shape the future of money, the new Internet, and the way we collaborate, grow and enjoy life.
We are looking for a magnetic, fast paced, organized and proactive Digital Marketing professional with 12+ years of experience in marketing to help us implement our methodology and act as fractional head of marketing for portfolio companies that we advise and help succeed, while in parallel Kilonova hires and train the team that will take over the marketing practice so that we can automate ourselves out of the job.
The ideal candidate is, before anything, a Crypto / Web3 / DeFi user, passionate about blockchain technology and the decentralized future it can shape, and is just as passionate about digital marketing, the ever changing technologies supporting it, and its timeless core concepts.
A seasoned professional with hands on experience and a passion for building teams and implementing growth blueprints while staying flexible to the dynamic needs of nascent projects. The ideal professional is focused on growth, is creative and analytical, results driven, resourceful and leads by example.
