Who is the Marketing Team?

The Marketing team supports the sales and customer success teams by creating marketing campaigns that help the sales teams to connect with potential customers. This usually takes the form of creating a piece of content - a thought leadership article, blogpost or podcast and then creating a marketing campaign around it which we promote via online advertising. Potential new clients see and read the content and often then contact us to find out more information. This is when we are able to start talking to them about the products and services we have to offer.

Our customers:

Our potential clients are all people who work in financial services offering products to everyday people.

How can we work together?

If you’re interested in marketing we can help you get a really good insight into marketing and how it works with the rest of the business. As our Kickstarter you will be shadowing one of the marketing managers and learning how they create campaigns. You will also have the opportunity to shadow our sales development representatives to understand their role.

Why Currencycloud?

We are a remote-first company; whichever location you’re contracted to, we leave it up to you and your manager to agree on how often you come into the office. To make things easier we offer an allowance so you can create your own working space at home because we REALLY mean it when we say remote first.

Your health and well-being are of paramount importance to us, and so our jampacked employee benefits reflect this!

We offer a competitive salary, an individual learning and development budget, a pension or 401K contribution, mental health days and comprehensive health care that includes annual optical and dental allowances, access to mental health support and a monthly allowance that you can spend on anything health or wellness related!

At the moment we are unable to consider applicants living outside of our entities and we are unable to provide visa sponsorship.
