We are Open Social. We develop online community software (think: your own private Facebook platform) that helps organizations like Greenpeace and the United Nations fulfill their missions.
Open Social is growing fast! Because of last year's 1.25M euro investment from Peak Capital and Nimbus Ventures, we are growing our position and accelerating our rapid growth in Europe and the US. That's why we are looking for a new Head of Marketing that speaks English fluently, has experience in the B2B SaaS world and that helps us create awareness and traction via inbound and outbound marketing to power positive change across the globe with our product.
