Help wanted – Chief Marketing Officer at UpWave

UpWave AS is seeking an experienced chief marketing officer (CMO) to drive further growth globally. The main responsibility will be to increase website traffic by an order of magnitude. We are experiencing good conversion rates and low churn, and are now working on increasing awareness.

UpWave is a task management tool launched early in 2016. We spent the remainder of the year finding product/market fit, and now have paying users in 30 countries. Check out the recent community feedback on Product Hunt.
