We're creating a new payment
network for the internet

Open positions

Marketing Manager – Accountants

At GoCardless we are looking to scale from processing $1 billion a year to over $10 billion. Our vision is to create a global payments network, making payments simpler on the internet no matter what country you're in. We’re moving into our next phase of growth and are looking to add new talent to the team to continue our momentum with SMEs, larger enterprise merchants and our global expansion.

The need to take recurring payments is increasing: it is becoming strategically important, not only for established users of direct debit such as utilities, telecoms, and media companies, but also for the latest wave of Software as a Service and Internet of Things providers.

We’re looking for an amazing product marketing manager to take our products and craft the messaging and positioning to each of our audiences – from a small digital agency or a city council looking to modernise their existing cumbersome Direct Debit processes, to a global SaaS powerhouse taking payments in 90 countries.

The role

You will be responsible for managing all marketing activity to the accountancy sector and for helping us develop strong, long-lasting relationships with accountancy companies. Initially, this will be for the UK, with the opportunity to expand this across Europe. This will include working with a range of firms from small sole trader businesses up to the top 100 practices, as well as in-house finance teams.

Working with Marketing team, you’ll build out a strategic plan to develop our brand within the accounting sector, building on existing relationships and developing new ones. You’ll use a range of channels from our accounting software partnerships to the major associations to direct marketing.

Some of the main elements of the role will involve:

  • Manage our portfolio of existing accountancy and bookkeeping firms building trust, credibility and advocacy in the sector.
  • Develop a multi-channel marketing strategy to drive awareness of GoCardless among accountants.
  • Utilise existing relationships with accounting software and apps providers to build out our accounting and bookkeeping merchant base.
  • Build out relevant content and collateral to support accountants to promote GoCardless internally and to their client base.

This is a brand new role and you’ll be working closely with the Marketing and Partnerships teams, reporting to the VP Marketing. You’ll also work closely with Sales, Product and Operations team to ensure we are building long term relationships with this sector and meeting merchant and revenue targets.

Who we're looking for

We’re looking for a marketing rock star who is creative, driven and excited about working in a fast growing FinTech startup.

  • You are an experienced marketer with a proven track record of working within the accounting sector.
  • You are self-motivated, driven, high energy and engaging.
  • You have a mix of creative and analytical skills - able to develop new innovative marketing activities with strong quantitative analytical skills to review and act on the results.
  • You have excellent communication and copywriting skills.
  • You are able to work across multiple teams both internally and externally.
  • You are curious and a rigorous thinker, always probing beyond a simple answer and assuming nothing.

In your application, please include your CV and a cover letter explaining why you are a great candidate for this position. Our team come from a variety of backgrounds and we welcome diversity – if you're unsure, please apply.
