  • Strong empathy for the customer, user-centric mindset, and an unwillingness to lower standards.
  • Proven track-record in marketing successful product launches in fast-paced environments.
  • Natural-born leader who will lead not only the product marketing function, but be a key leader across the marketing organization, shaping overall audience, marketing and communications strategy.
  • A work ethic of going above and beyond to make things happen. Ability to be hands-on and thrive in a fast-paced environment with strong project management skills.

Our diverse and dynamic team is made up of more than 400 members representing over 40 different nationalities. While we are based in Geneva, Switzerland, we have offices in Zurich, Prague, London, Vilnius, Skopje, Taipei, and many more employees working remotely around the world.
