Sports Marketing Leader

The Opportunity
We are excited to offer the role of the Sports Marketing Leader to an entrepreneurial new member of our international team in Zurich. You will work with our incredible group of pro athletes from different sports and devise the best activation strategy to celebrate their achievements. Teaming up with our athlete manager, event manager, marketing specialists and brand ambassadors, you will make sports marketing at On bigger than the sum of its parts.

You are a contemporary marketeer with a creative spike and a passion for sports. You have several years of experience in activating athletes and their stories in writing, photography and film. You know how to unleash the power of digital channels and earned media. While you are rooted in the sports world, you know how to tell a story that is relevant to a wider audience beyond the individual sport. 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. 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 20-30% of your time.
