Now, we are looking for our next Head of Marketing, who can help us elevate our brand to new heights and further strengthen the way we attract and support entrepreneurs of the future.

The position

We know that startup founders come in all shapes and forms and you will play a crucial part in positioning Sting, making sure our offers keep being well-known, relevant, and attractive.

Your role will include:

  • lead and develop Sting's marketing strategy and goals to reach overall business objectives.

  • produce and distribute content and communication, and evaluate the data to understand impacts and improvements.
  • manage and guide the marketing team (small but knowledgeable).
  • Report to the CEO, and work closely with other decision-makers to align marketing activities.

We assume you have worked with marketing and communications on a strategic and hands-on level and can drive change and achieve results. We value a can-do, problem-solving approach, a friendly and unpretentious attitude, and an ability to create collaboration.

To be successful you need the following:

  • at least 5 years of combined experience in marketing/communication and knowledge of crafting marketing strategies.
  • experience in leading a marketing team, with a strong ability to drive teamwork.
  • strong project management skills, with the ability to implement and manage different projects in parallel.
  • a content-first approach with an excellent ability to produce engaging marketing material.
  • fluent in Swedish and English with excellent oral and written language skills.
  • a bachelor's degree or equivalent experience in marketing

Bonus if you have:

  • experience working with HubSpot
  • understanding of how to work with PR in an effective way and strategic tool.
  • experience working with or in a tech startup(s).

At Sting, we are passionate about innovation and entrepreneurship, and we are looking for an innovative and fun-to-work-with Head of Marketing who shares our vision and values.
