NEAR Foundation is hiring a Partnership Marketing Manager. This role will work hand-in-glove with the BD team to help promote, amplify and integrate new 3rd party partners to the Near ecosystem, using the marketing team collateral, resources and communication channels.

You will:

  • Develop a clear understanding of the Near proposition to partners (marketing) and the pipeline / target categories (BD)

  • Work closely with marketing to maximise partnership announcements across Near channels
  • Work closely with BD to ensure the marketing activity plan complements the BD pipeline of targeted 3rd parties (e.g. by sub-category, region)

You should apply if you:

  • Are either an established Partnerships Manager with 2-4 years experience, or perhaps in an agency working with multiple clients. If you’ve worked as a member of a marketing or BD function working on 3rd party partnerships and you’re ready to step up to manager level, this role can also accommodate a motivated and committed candidate.

  • Able to work with a global remote team and can be flexible to attend meetings to accommodate the global team. Work life balance is good, but ad hoc meetings across time zones can be common.
