Status - Remote

Status is a well-capitalized, young startup with a rapidly growing team and open source community. We're building an interface for the next generation of internet applications powered by blockchain and peer-to-peer technologies. Decentralized applications remove the need for middlemen and centralised servers, and provide a clear path forward towards an internet where users get to own their own data, and economies built on open protocols.
We're a fully remote company made up of 25 people (predominantly engineers) and our team deeply values location independence, being self-directed, flexible work hours, open source software, and the fast-paced nature of a startup working on an emerging technology.

You will be expected to develop and execute upon our go-to-market strategy. You should be a creative marketing professional skilled in storytelling and preferably a background in direct response.
This role will provide room to grow, and does not come rigidly defined. You'll be expected to play a part in building our marketing team and will be also granted the freedom to design our brand in a way that's not possible within larger firmly established enterprises.

- Understand cryptocurrency communities and the nature of an open source community-driven project in shaping marketing decisions.
- Research and understand market, product, and competitive dynamics and share findings and recommendations with product management to shape product decisions.
- Support brand initiatives for new product or features releases.
- Seven to nine years marketing and branding experience, with at least five years experience in enterprise software product marketing preferred.
- Exceptional written and verbal communication skills - - Must have experience crafting and evangelizing product messages, developing creative product marketing content and comfortable presenting to customers and sales teams alike.
- Experience working with top-tier agencies from first contact to execution.
- Strong project management experience.
- An interest in blockchain technology and open source software.
- Self-motivated and the ability to work with a high degree of autonomy.
