Grow (with) our business

Job offering for a Digital Marketing Manager / CMO (m/f/x)

About SciFlow and our vision

We help researchers and students to focus on what is important when writing a paper or thesis - the writing and not the formatting. With the idea in mind to simplify scientific writing, we started SciFlow two years ago. Paying customers and a cooperation with the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) are excellent first steps. For the next steps, we could use some help 😁.

We want to take SciFlow from what it is now to an open publication platform. We want to shape the way how research results are written and shared - worldwide. That means open access to results and an automated platform. Not everything should be automated. We make it easy for our community to provide peer review in a transparent way.

To keep it short: We see the future of publishing as connected, open and automated.

We are looking for

  • a CMO who establishes SciFlow in the global research community.
  • a hands-on mindset in the content marketing area.
  • a leader who develops a Performance Marketing and builds a team.
  • a partner who can shape the way our company does marketing.
  • someone who will grow with the company.

What you bring to the table

  • You have a degree in business administration, media, communication, economics or journalism or similar.

What's in it for you?

  • Usual market salary and shares in the company
