Startup Growth Marketing Leader

We're looking for an extremely talented Growth or Marketing Leader to build the Akkio community.

Cambridge, MA
Full Time

This is a rare opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a well-funded AI startup. Report directly to the COO. Offers come with substantial equity grants and our culture is built around shared wins, so success drives large career, financial, and personal growth.

AI will transform every industry -- but only when it’s accessible to everyone, not just data scientists. Akkio makes it simple for businesses to take advantage of the power of AI by combining highly efficient machine learning with a simple and easy to use interface. Our freemium model ensures that everyone can try Akkio, big or small. We are looking for a leader to own growth with this product-led growth model, so a sales-led, account-based approach won’t be very effective here. To be the right fit you must believe in our mission and be excited to work in a small, dynamic startup team.


As our Growth Marketing Leader, you will be responsible for building the relationship between Akkio and Predictors (our target users) - the Sales, Marketing, and Finance revolutionaries using data to predict the future so their companies can win in the market. You will be a key member of the leadership team, helping to craft the go-to-market strategy and then executing it. Your first task will be to build and cultivate a community around Akkio, building lasting relationships with influencers in the space and awareness of the product. You will own earned media. As we scale you will build and lead a team that focuses on acquisition, activation, and retention. You will leverage data and our AI platform to optimize funnel efficiency. Most importantly, you will approach each day with an entrepreneurial mindset - rolling up your sleeves and doing whatever it takes to grow. In exchange, our team is committed to supporting the culture of experimentation that you develop. 

About You

  • You have demonstrated past success and have a hunger for more. 
  • 3-5 years of go to market experience in a product, growth, or marketing role (ideally in B2B SaaS, product-led growth, and/or startup environments). At first, you will be the sole member of this team -- VPs need not apply. 
  • A natural networker - you are pro-social and enjoy building relationships with influencers, early adopters, and brand advocates.
  • A storyteller - you get excited about products and the problems they can solve, and that excitement is contagious
  • Self-motivated - you identify opportunities and roll up your sleeves to make them happen; you’re not afraid of getting your hands dirty.
  • Technology enthusiast - you stay up-to-date on the latest tools, best practices, and are always striving to make processes more efficient and effective.
  • You are not afraid to experiment and willing to risk failure to do it.

Our Mission

The promise of the AI Revolution is to tackle numerous, intractable problems across business, healthcare, science, education, government, transportation, and logistics to name just a few. But so far, the benefits have been seen only by the few organizations with the resources to support data science and machine learning teams.

Akkio makes it so that every Predictor has access to the same state-of-the-art AI capabilities, formerly only available to the largest corporations and most well-funded research groups.

We do this because we believe that AI is the future, and the future belongs to everyone.

To all recruitment agencies: Akkio does not accept agency resumes. Please do not forward resumes to our jobs alias or Akkio employees. Akkio is not responsible for any fees related to unsolicited resumes.
