Thanks for taking a look at the job description for Head of Marketing at Impala. We felt a little bit impersonal just throwing you right in there with words like “revolutionizing” and “disrupting”.

As such, we want you to know that the person that wrote this job description apologises in advance for any clichés, tropes or sudden-insecurity-driven-panic-attacks that you might find in the description below.

What is Impala?

Impala makes building travel software incredibly easy. We provide hotels with a powerful data management platform that makes connecting to software, hardware and room distributors extremely easy. Think Twilio for Travel.

We launched in January 2019 and since then have grown at - quite frankly - a ridiculous old clip. Our technology is already installed in hundreds of hotels worldwide, on six continents and categorises more than 1 billion data points.

We are a growing team of exceptional people split across engineering, product and commercial that have built a fantastic community.


Where is Impala going?

We’re supported by some of the best investors in the business, the early-stage backers behind Deliveroo, PillPack, SecretEscapes, Zoopla, Trivago and more. They’re on board because of our vision - revolutionizing a $1.6 trillion dollar market that’s been out-of-date for 20 years.

Within the next two years, 25% of hotel bookings worldwide will flow through Impala technology and the product that we’re building will support the entire ecosystem of travel technology (we already have over a thousand companies signed up).

Anyone travelling anywhere will interact with products powered by Impala and to achieve this we’re growing the team to 50 people within the next year. Now is the most exciting time to be joining Impala as we go through a large push to scale up!


What will you be doing?

  • Building the marketing team and function of a company that has multiple layers of complexity in what messaging has to be directed to which external stakeholder at what time.
  • Overseeing the Go-To-Market of our products, making sure they're well messaged and communicated to the right target segments.
  • Developing a consistent brand and brand strategy that articulates our mission, values and ethos to the technology and travel worlds.
  • Working with the Product and Sales teams to develop to help make our products exceptionally powerful tools for our customers to solve problems.
  • Building a thought leadership strategy within travel technology. We're out there on the leading edge of this industry and we need to talk about it with more clarity and more purpose.
  • Overseeing a growth marketing strategy that takes into account the variety of non-standard channels on which we have to market and communicate.

It’s an incredible greenfield role for the right person.

You should join us if:

  • You have held a Head of Marketing/CMO/VP Marketing position in the past and has built an incredible brand at a startup previously.
  • You have experience managing and leading people before.
  • You have experience in B2B marketing, preferably in deep technology.

  • We offer an extended lunch break option, meaning you can take an extra hour lunch break, and we trust you to make up for it later in the day.
