Vector Head of Growth
Head of Growth
Silicon Valley startups and legacy businesses alike have realised that users’ working experience could be improved and are rushing to plug every system imaginable into their messaging apps, wanting to be the one true collaboration platform. But users are overwhelmed. Too much information, fragmented over multiple apps, compounded by the pain of switching between them.
We believe that chat communications platforms are the next interaction environment of the internet. We believe applications should be launched and worked on in collaboration inside of digital meeting rooms. But we do not believe that users have to be drowning under notifications, or to feel trapped in never-ending 24x7 meetings. Or that they can’t disconnect at the risk of missing important stuff. Or that their data might be lost if a company goes bust.
So we are developing Vector (https://vector.im) a best-of-breed opensource collaboration tool aiming to open a new world of communication where online collaboration doesn’t necessarily means distraction.
Vector allows teams to work efficiently as a group by bridging together all their tools and conversation in a simple and uncluttered environment making it easy to tune in and tune out on every individual’s own terms. Secure, interoperable thanks to the Matrix standard (http://matrix.org) and centered around communication (text, voice & video), Vector lets people organise their work by conversations, each of them becoming real virtual teams putting all decisions, files and exchanges on the record, and making them available from anywhere. Vector’s target audience is small teams and working groups, in the future growing to the wider collaboration space.
Vector is looking for the support of an enthusiastic Head of Growth, passionate about communication and openness, experienced in driving usage adoption of mass market creative applications, and whose objective will be to convince people to use Vector rather than other closed alternatives.
Vector runs as an autonomous incubated startup within Amdocs, the leading provider of customer management solutions to mobile networks (http://amdocs.com), and is split between London (UK) and Rennes (France). You'll be joining an enthusiastic team of about 15 people.
You will be responsible for refining and executing the go to market plan of Vector, leading the communication effort and customer management. You will also be accountable for revenues. The role reports to the head of the unit, who is also leading the product development, and will work closely with the Product Manager, focusing on the product definition and user experience. You will set up a team including a Community Manager responsible for the customer relationship at every stage of the sell (leads, feedback gathering, and support) and a Marketing Operations Manager.
Your tasks will include:
- Convince people why Vector is a better alternative to Slack / Skype / etc
- Build on & improve existing GTM strategy: main channels, content definition, advertising strategy, partnership programs
- Lead messaging efforts
- Deliver on success KPIs, revenue and user base lines of the business plan
