Partner Marketing Manager
Toronto, ON /
At Horizon, we’re building a new dimension where Internet economies are fun, accessible, and for the benefit of all participants.
We have two amazing products to make this real:
Sequence, the all-in-one developer platform + smart wallet that makes building web3 games and applications easy.
Skyweaver, a digital trading card game—powered by Sequence—where players can win, own, and trade their NFT/SFT game items.
Sequence is poised to drive web3 adoption on a massive scale by making blockchain easy, fun and powerful for users and developers. And, Skyweaver is a groundbreaking video game with an unprecedented player-owned economy, novel gameplay, and an already fervent community.
While the challenge is hard, we find it incredibly fun. And, we have the ingredients to make it happen: a well-capitalized company with some of the best investors in the world, including Brevan Howard Digital, Take-Two Interactive Software Inc., Coinbase, Ubisoft, Polygon, Morgan Creek Digital, Initialized, BITKRAFT, and more; an amazing team of leaders in the web3 space; engineers who have built widely popular open source; a former top McKinsey strategy consultant; gaming industry veterans; and founders who have built and sold successful companies. You'll get to work with and learn from them all. Learn more at https://horizon.io/
About the Role
Sequence makes building great web3 games and apps easy for developers of all sizes and experience levels. This means that the Sequence community creates a ton of unique, fun, and memorable web3 experiences that we want to help the world discover.
We’re looking for an experienced Partner Marketing Manager to join our growing Sequence Marketing team and to play a key role in defining and growing our Partner Marketing efforts. The Partner Marketing Manager we’re looking for loves working with developers and gamers, is a collaborative relationship builder, and is excited about the opportunity to grow a function from the ground up.
The ideal candidate will have several years of experience in Partner Marketing, or in a mixture of Marketing and Business Development, Sales, or Customer Success roles. They will thrive working in a remote-first environment and collaborating virtually with colleagues and partners alike. While they don’t have to be an expert in web3 or gaming (yet!), they will have a deep-seated curiosity and desire to learn.
We’re looking for someone who is comfortable being both hands-on and strategic. You will collaborate on building the Partner Marketing strategy and you will be empowered to execute it. This means you’ll work collaboratively to define how to best approach Partner Marketing at Sequence to drive our business goals forward, and then take that strategy and bring it to life. You will work closely with developers building web3 experiences using Sequence, help drive awareness and adoption of their projects, and ensure that other web3 builders understand how Sequence powered those successful projects.
You will report to our Director of Product Marketing for Sequence and be part of the Sequence Marketing team. Your work will be incredibly cross-functional and you can expect to work closely with our Business Development team, our Product team, and of course our vibrant community of builders and partners.
This role offers a unique opportunity to make a huge impact on a new function at a growing company in a rapidly-scaling sector. The projects you’ll work on have the potential to affect hundreds of millions of people around the world. You will be a key asset in making web3 accessible to people worldwide.
