Full time • Oslo
We’re looking for someone eager to take the lead on all our marketing initiatives across all our startups.
Head of Marketing
Railway is a close-knit team of entrepreneurial makers, dedicated to help solve some of our time’s biggest challenges. We build lightweight startups with heavyweight impact, leveraging untapped assets in established industries. Our backbone is human-centric design, and we value long-term sustainability over short-term financial gains.
You will be joining our dynamic team of seven employees, at our Vulkan office. You will collaborate closely with our entire organization and together, we will invent new startups and scale them to achieve international success.
As Head of Marketing you will have the freedom to take the lead and invent our marketing game from scratch. You will have the responsibility for all marketing initiatives across the different startups we build, meaning you will be responsible for creating awareness through marketing and PR to generate growth for both Railway and our ventures. This includes everything from the larger marketing campaigns to the daily grind on social media.
In short, your actions will be crucial to our success and will set the direction of the company in the coming years. We can’t teach you how to do it. We can’t even give you large budgets to make it easier. Instead, you need to be resourceful and figure it out together with the rest of us.
To be successful in this role, you'll need strong collaboration skills, a maker's mind, and the ability to convey our stories in an appealing way that sparks interest. This will require exceptional skills, but most importantly someone who believes in what we are trying to achieve in Railway and are willing to invest in our community.
You have previous experience with marketing and can point to past successes and expand on what you learned.
You are proactive, always looking for something to improve and capable of realizing your own visions.
You are both empathic and analytical, enabling you to understand how we create value for people and measure that impact to prioritize the best actions.
You are resourceful and able to accomplish a lot with little, even if that means you have to be unconventional or hack something together to make it work.
You have valuable connections in the industry and are able to build strong professional relationships.
You are eager to take the lead on marketing and are comfortable knowing we can’t teach you what you need to know to succeed.
You speak, or are currently learning, Norwegian or another Scandinavian language.
We'll ask for some personal info along with your portfolio or description of earlier marketing projects you have been a part of.
We will set-up a video call with Sondre and Andreas, our founders, where you will spend some time getting to know each other and dive into questions you might have.
We will share a take-home exercise with you. This will help us get a sense of your abilities, and you can get a feel for the kind of problems you will be solving at Railway.
By this point, you will chat with the rest of the team and share a bit about your background, experience, and achievements, and learn more about the role.
The last informal chat where we will dive into Railway's values and culture. This is also a perfect moment to ask any pressing questions.
Let's sign and make it final.
