The Role
We’re on the hunt for a crypto-curious PMM  to help make Kraken and our asset listings easy and accessible for everyone. In this role, you’ll be responsible and accountable for the success and growth of the depth and breadth of assets we offer on the platform. This will include conducting inbound research to understand the motivations, needs and opportunities behind Consumer, Pro Trader, and Institutional needs, as well as crafting and executing go-to-market strategies that bring tailored products to the market. 
You’ll be an important partner to our product team and will have a hand in influencing the asset listing roadmap. Your team will lead, organize, conduct, and coordinate proactive quantitative and qualitative research with various stakeholders and partners to distill insights that help us deeply understand and empathize with our users and prospective clients. You will learn their most pressing needs and problems. These inputs will influence our product-lead growth, segmentation, messaging and experimentation. You will inform how we solve these problems and provide value. 
You will activate cross-functional partners in marketing at the right time to achieve our go-to-market goals. This will include setting measures of success and defining the inputs/outputs needed to derive product-market fit. You will use these to activate and direct acquisition, retention, content, social, comms, brand, creative, and other teams. You will conduct the efforts needed to achieve and scale growth. A key thing is we focus on resonance in our storytelling and we are thoughtful and calculated with our big bets.
What You’ll Do
Leverage your knowledge of different marketing functions and how (and when) to best leverage and activate their skills for product launches and sustained growth
Orchestrate marketing from inbound to go-to-market execution across UXR, market research, data and intel, acquisition, retention, content, comms, social, and brand
Dive in and assume a variety of marketing roles when the need arises
Serve as subject matter expert in all things assets and lead a team in planning and executing  go-to-market strategies for asset listings, features, and enhancements by forming the positioning and messaging 
Learn what new clients need before they need it through direct research, surveys, competitive intel, and market sizing
Consider the DNA of Kraken, the cultural values we stand for everyday, and ensure those genetics are in each product we ship to further deliver on our brand promise
Take a diplomatic leadership approach to involve stakeholders early and get cross-functional work done; be a proactive leader and decision-maker that can rally leaders around a common problem or goal
Use sound product sense in marketing every day: identify the problem we are solving for, our hypothesis, what goals we will set and how we measure them, what channels are best to use, what we should do now, next, and later, and plan we will scale and automate 
Create and share intel on competing products and marketing; summarize what is working well and what is not and how we will differentiate ourselves; know our products, our competitors products, and the differences between them better than anyone
Use quantitative and qualitative analysis to create briefs and narratives that identify opportunities to grow our client base 
Plan and execute go-to-market strategy for new products by framing the positioning, messaging, and value propositions for each relevant client segment 
Make data-driven decisions when framing hypotheses, determining product-market fit, evaluating campaign performance, and setting goals
Be an owner: step up and take the lead on challenging, ambiguous work 
Who You Are
You have a minimum of 6+ years of experience in product marketing, martech product management, lifecycle, or channel marketing within a B2C context
Experience in crypto, fintech, or investtech highly preferred; 
You have a deep understanding of complex crypto products and the competitive landscape, including DeFi, staking, parachain auctions, etc. 
You  are an avid trader that understands the ins and outs of the market and consumer needs. 
Pro tip: Show off your crypto expertise on your resume/cover letter. We love seeing creative applications!
You have experience running successful go-to-market (GTM) B2C campaigns for multiple products and features for existing customers
You have built, scaled, and led sophisticated, globally-distributed, matrixed teams
You have a strong interest in crypto and belief in its future impact on economics, trade, and society; you follow the industry whether you’re a seasoned OG or you recently started your journey down the rabbit hole and through the looking glass
You’re a concise speaker, storyteller, and writer: you can slice, dice, and distill a narrative from a complex data set into an executive summary 
You’re an ally to product managers and other marketers, often volunteering to test alphas/betas, lead inbound customer research, and seek diverse perspectives
You can be the antithesis of a lone wolf: you clearly communicate and involve stakeholders early and often and work to secure buy-in, address concerns, and incorporate feedback 
You’ve got an ease about you: you address urgency head-on and handle difficult, ambiguous situations with a clear, cool head and an open mind

We’re powered by people from around the world with their own unique and diverse experiences. We value all Krakenites and their talents, contributions, and perspectives, regardless of their background. We encourage you to apply for roles where you don't fully meet the listed requirements, especially if you're passionate or knowledgable about crypto!
