Axis is again hiring a head of marketing, posting:
The Director of Marketing holds ultimate responsibility for all marketing activities in the Americas (Marketing Communications, Branding and Events, Partner Marketing and Business Development Marketing) as well as Educational Services and Sales Development/Lead Generation.
Original 2018 post:
Axis job opening (deadline Nov 30, 2018):
We are currently recruiting a new Director of Marketing who will have ultimate responsibility for all marketing activities in North America and be part of the North American Management Team. The position reports directly to the Vice President, Americas.
In lieu of market pay, Axis offers:
Wednesday popcorn, Friday morning bagels, ping pong, and other fun activities add to the time we spend together.
Axis is bad at marketing (e.g., explained here at ISCW18). Most notably, they release lots of good new products but do a really bad job at promoting / explaining / marketing them. More broadly, for a company as large as they now are, they are nowhere near as visible as they could. I am not sure if a single new director is going to fix that as it might be more of a cultural / organizational problem but we will see.
