About Thatch

Thatch is a new way to buy, sell and discover unique, interactive travel guides and services from content creators around the world.
We care deeply about helping people spend more time doing the things they love - and less time with the stuff that gets in the way. And we do this by obsessing over the details that make product experiences useful, human and fun.
The company has raised $5.2M from some of Silicon Valley's best early stage investors including Tim Connors at Pivot North (first investor in 6 $1B+ companies), Wave Capital (early operators at Airbnb that lead data science and corp dev), Freestyle.vc (early investors in Patreon, Airtable) and Marc Randolph (co-founder of Netflix).

⚽️ What we look for in teammates

Smarts
We don't care if you have a fancy degree. We care that you're naturally curious and have a natural inclination to learn new tools, and an ability to get up to speed quickly in different areas of your job, intuitively make connections across new concepts, and efficiently communicate your ideas and solutions for the problems at hand.
Goodness
We care about working with good humans which means we only hire people who are honest, reliable and generous, with high emotional intelligence and a healthy balance of humility and confidence.
Grit
Building things from scratch is difficult and full of uncertainty. You should enjoy working hard to solve real problems, not be afraid to try and learn new things, have a bias toward action and have the passion, perseverance and resourcefulness to stick with it when things are ambiguous or uncertain.

The Role

We’re looking for an ambitious, well rounded marketer early in their career who is eager to work and learn in an early-stage, fast-moving environment.
As a junior marketer, you will be responsible for working within the strategic goals of the marketing organization, but creatively leading your own projects and delivering strong results. You’ll be expected to own campaigns from start to finish, including creating content to execute on them. Additionally, you’ll set the strategic direction for our social media platforms and be responsible for delivering on their growth.
A note on marketing at Thatch: As a marketplace, Thatch has two key customers to market to - each with distinct needs and wants: Travel Creators (supply) and Travelers (demand). Today the majority of our marketing efforts are focused on Travel Creators but over time expect this to shift more to the consumer.
