Growth Marketing Manager at Boords

We're looking for a Growth Marketing Manager to join our team. This is the perfect job for an ambitious all-round marketing superstar. In this cross-functional role, your primary responsibility will be to grow our user base across Boords.

Why work with us?

The Boords story started as a conversation over a burger between Tom Judd and James Chambers, the co-founders of award-winning London animation studio, Animade. Tom, complaining about the laborious and time-consuming process of storyboarding and James quietly taking it all on board... then the lightbulb moment occurred: Boords. Storyboarding made simple! Boords has completely transformed our workflow and we hope it is something that will help other creatives save time, heartache... and the occasional desire to break a computer.

We are inviting you to be part of our Boords family to work closely with the leadership team at Boords. This is a rare opportunity to play a pivotal role in terms of Boords’ growth and success.
