Stitch is a developer-first API startup with a mission to deeply connect financial systems with the wider world. We provide an API which allows third-party apps and websites to interact with their user's bank accounts in ways that unlocks the ability for companies across Africa to build innovative technology products quickly.
Creating innovative financial products is incredibly difficult today, and we believe that unlocking the way people interact with their finances starts with enabling developers with the tools and infrastructure needed to execute on their vision.
We are looking for a Head of Marketing & Communications who can help support our team by building out and professionalising our mission-critical marketing function.
In particular, we're looking for someone who can drive a multi-faceted communications strategy across a number of platforms: our website, Stitch's social media presence, formal press & media, and creative content marketing channels like blogs and video showcases.
The ideal candidate is creative and self-sufficient: as Stitch's first real marketing & communications hire, this person will be looked upon as a trailblazer for Stitch's public presence, using a number of tools at their disposal to ensure that the Stitch brand and offering is well-communicated.
We see this role as being critical to our leadership team, and as such will be looking to compensate the individual with equity appropriately. We want to ensure that you feel as if you own a part of this company, as your work will drive the fabric of the business.
