Director of Product Marketing
Palo Alto, CA
The traditional financial industry was not built to put the interests of clients first. At Wealthfront, we’re committed to building products and services that are designed to earn you more and make it easy to bank, invest, and plan for your future. And we don’t want to stop there – our vision is to optimize your money across spending, savings, and investments, putting it all to work effortlessly. Deposit your paycheck with Wealthfront and, with the click of a button, you can have us automate the rest. Our software can top off your emergency fund, pay all your bills, and even invest the rest to help meet your goals. We call this future Self-Driving Money™.
We’re looking for a passionate marketing leader to help change the conversation around finance and help more people discover a better financial life through our products and services. But we know that finance is a crowded space with incumbents and competitors – we need someone with strategic messaging chops and creative ideas who can help us stand out in the crowd and grow our business. Specifically, this person will partner with the Advice Automation product team to bring the first features of our Self-Driving Money™ vision to life later this year. As a result, you’ll be an essential leader in the success of our ultimate product vision.
This role reports to the VP of Marketing and is an essential hire for our small but mighty marketing team. This is an ideal opportunity for someone who’s excited to get their hands dirty building from the ground up and to mentor other team members. In addition, this person will have the unique opportunity to influence our overall marketing strategy and help shape the vision for the team as we grow this year. If this excites you, we want to hear from you!

Join us so you can help us turn this industry on its head and build a service that our clients don't just like, they love.
