Able is seeking a Head of Growth Marketing to join our distributed team. This is a newly created role, and deserving of a unique person to fill it. Here’s the story: over the past several years, Able has grown immeasurably. Our revenue and team have grown +30% y/y. We’ve also grown in the type of company that we are:

Chapter 1: We were founded in 2013 as a product and engineering hub for a portfolio of early stage start-ups. We grew up as an in-house/external hybrid shared services model. That allowed us to hone our skills and establish our operational and cultural foundation. 

Chapter 2. In 2019 we began to expand our vision. We began to grow outside of our inset partner base. We had good initial success meeting new partners, kicking off new relationships, and delivering high value work.

Chapter 3. We are now beginning a new chapter, an expansion of the ambition of Chapter 2. We have two primary audiences to grow with:

  • Organization Leaders. Founders, CTOs, CPOs, and nonprofit leaders who need product and engineering expertise they can trust to achieve their vision.
  • Supernodes. VCs, Private Equity Leaders and family offices that maintain networks of investment companies. We offer a unique model to create a product strategy and engineering shared services capability across the portfolio.

We are looking for a leader who can help better connect us with these groups. A key catalyst for our Chapter 3 growth plan. A door opener. A natural connector. A relentless and fearless hustler who manages their broad network thoughtfully and powerfully.
