Marketing Communications Leader

The Opportunity
We are excited to offer the role of the Marketing Communications Leader to an entrepreneurial new member of our international team in Zurich. You will lead our “internal agency” with coms channel specialists and designers. At the same time, you will work with exceptional independent creatives. The joint goal is to deliver 360 campaigns that stand out: brand storytelling, product launches, athlete & event storytelling, technology highlights, seasonal campaigns, community building. The scope is global and spans channels like trade marketing, all things digital, events, PR, sports marketing and community marketing.

You are a contemporary marketeer with a creative spike and an excellent understanding of digital channels. You have several years of experience at a creative agency or in an “internal agency” at a great consumer brand. You are leading multifunctional teams and have proven to deliver campaign impact in contemporary channels without huge advertising budgets. The role requires a dual spike: being a great planner who shapes the marketing roadmap and drives execution while at the same time being an idea/design person who helps the team to take the creative leap. You feel naturally drawn to such a broad role because you know that great ideas only come to life through hands-on execution. You speak and write in English and ideally in German as well.

You will work in an environment where we make ideas happen fast, decide quickly and give you high levels of responsibility. You will work with an exceptional team in Europe, the US and Japan and report directly to one of the founders of On. You enjoy a rapidly growing/changing work environment and the go-getter spirit of a young, ambitious team. The role requires a 100% commitment and you are willing to travel 10-20% of your time.

If you are interested in shaping a young global sports brand, please send your application to [email protected]. Ideally, please include examples of campaigns that you spearheaded. We handle all applications confidentially.
