Airtasker searching for a CMO just weeks after ASX listing

Airtasker successfully landed on the ASX late last month, and now the gig economy startup is looking to bolster its Australian team with the hire of a chief marketing officer.

The company’s IPO valued the Airtasker at $255 million, despite the fact that it is yet to post a profit. Airtasker shares began trading at $1.05 on the day it listed and are now worth $1.33 as of Thursday, 8 April.

Airtasker has appointed a creative agency

Now Airtasker is hiring for a range of roles, with positions including data analyst, product manager, head of talent acquisition, VP of product, software engineers, and CMO.

The CMO job listing says Airtakser is looking for “an experienced marketing leader to help us spread the Airtasker message across the world and empower more people to realise the full value of their skills.”

The successful candidate must have built and taken a team of 50+ people to scale, and will be supported by a full-stack marketing team in Sydney and Manilla. They must also have worked in an international product setting before.

“You are an advocate of evidence-based marketing, a student of modern content and growth marketing practices, and are well versed in creating a holistic marketing strategy across multiple channels and in deep collaboration with Product leadership,” says the listing.

Airtasker isn’t just looking in Australia for the gig either, with the job listing revealing that Visa, PR sponsorship and relocations support will be made available to the right overseas candidate.

Earlier in 2021 Airtasker appointed One Green Bean as its PR agency of record, following a three-way competitive pitch.

In mid-2020, the company awarded its creative account to Two Mad Cowboys.

The agency dropped its first creative for Airtasker months later, with its ‘Task Smarter’ campaign pushing the message “It’s amazing what you can’t do”.
