We’re looking for a product marketer who can help us continue to grow as the #1 credit-building app. Kikoff financial products have already helped hundreds of thousands of customers improve their credit scores; and with your help we can improve the financial lives of millions of Americans.
Product Marketing at Kikoff means you will be directly responsible for the adoption and customer experience of our products. You’ll be rolling up your sleeves and talking to customers, analyzing data, and whiteboarding to come up with the best strategies. This is a highly collaborative and cross-functional role, you’ll partner closely with many teams: product, design, engineering, customer support – and more!

What you can expect in this role:

  • Create and execute on go-to-market plans: you’ll own a roadmap for product adoption and initiatives to ensure the best possible customer experience.
  • Turn customer insights into product marketing strategy: by speaking to customers, looking at support tickets, analyzing usage data, discovering bugs, and more – you’ll create an actionable roadmap for our products.
  • Uncover hidden opportunities: You’ll proactively find blockers to scale and opportunities to create an even better customer experience – and then work with the rest of the team to remove them. We place a high premium on taking the initiative to solve problems.
  • Launching new products & features: as part of a high growth startup, you’ll have the opportunity to drive the launch of multiple new products and features.
  • Own end-to-end marketing campaigns: you’ll work with a team to execute on marketing campaigns, from campaign strategy, to design and creative, and then sharing the results and metrics.

What will help make you successful:

  • Customer-focused: you always think of the customer first and make sure we never lose sight of that as a company. Our products and company will be successful if we make sure we’re helping our customers first and foremost.
  • Attention to detail: You’re scrutinizing every detail of the customer experience to identify pain points and opportunities.
  • Data oriented: you feel comfortable analyzing and interpreting data, and using data to back you up.
  • Team player: you’re able to effectively lead others towards a common goal, explain insights and data, and manage a complex project.
