Job Type Full-time


We are looking for Australia’s best tech Marketer, who is over COVID-19, a gun on the slopes and who may enjoy the outdoors. Is it time to get moving? Say goodbye to dingoes, poisonous spiders, the pandemic at the local pub, and say hello snowy mountains, fresh air, cheap housing, zero traffic, world class pinot and of course Queenstown down the road.

You would be a natural Marketing front person who can establish a complete marketing function that is focused on a great digital product and brand that is now ready for a new sales-focused marketing approach supported by a smart strategy and planning.

Our client, an established Agritech company, is looking to fill a newly created Head of Marketing position, which focuses on three main functions within the company – lead marketing function, digital product expertise, and sales integration and revenue growth.

The ideal marketing lead will be responsible for creating an effective product marketing strategy and building brand awareness to propel company growth. You will work closely with the sales team to understand customers, act as a company brand ambassador to external sources, and drive sales revenue through a successful array of new marketing initiatives.

You could be an Ex agency Strategist or Planner? Or a Marketing Head within a corporate looking for a new challenge in the tech scene? Perhaps your proven in products and have already worked in marketing for a local SaaS brand we know well.

This role suits someone with pure drive, innovative tech smarts and who, of course, is going places. The right candidate needs to be senior in their career, connected to rural communities New Zealand wide, smart, articulate and process-driven. They’ll understand the business challenges a mature tech start-up or growing business may face and think strategically with every project they complete.

They’ll be a team player, invested in the success of the wider team and the business in general – motivating, and seeing the results of campaigns and converting new online leads into retained customers.

The Australia’s best tech marketer will have the energy and business acumen to work alongside a dynamic sales team (who also like to ski), take direction from the board and understand where return on investment fits into the growth plan. They’ll not only have a budgeting and planning track record – but also know and enjoy the rural sector and be prepared to work smart creating an ongoing pipeline of new leads, and opportunities for the sales team.

Sounds like you? Ready for some snow!
