As the rapid growth of our company continues, we are looking for a Marketing Director to join our team of hard-working and motivated professionals. This is a new position at our company, and you will get the opportunity to shape it based on your expertise. As the Marketing Director, you will be responsible for the company’s marketing, including planning of marketing materials and campaigns from budgeting to implementation. The ability to recognize new marketing needs, marketing channels, and target customer groups for the purpose of creating new business opportunities is essential in this work.
As the Marketing Director, cooperation with the other departments inside the organization is an essential part of your work. You will participate in product development by bringing forward customer needs and wishes, and your expertise will be utilized when new product development plans are made. You will participate in planning of scientific research projects from the marketing point of view. Additionally, you are expected to create and maintain relations to the key opinion leaders within the industry. Together with the sales team, you will plan the launching of new products and search for efficient ways to reach distributors and end users. Abacus’ external communication will be on your responsibility, and one of your goals is to improve the visibility of the company.
We expect you to have a goal-oriented and enthusiastic approach to your work. While it is a “hands-on” position, we do not expect you to do everything yourself: you can purchase services from existing or new partners and make use of your own contacts. As a successful marketing director, you can build your own marketing team around you. You will have the support of a close-knit work community used to working in an environment where colleagues are there to help each other. As the marketing director, you will be part of the operative management and report directly to the CEO.
