What- the Opportunity:  Director, Corporate Communications.  This is a fantastic opportunity to join one of Canada’s most exciting companies in a role crucial to the company’s continued growth and success. The company is out of start-up phase and well into “scale-up” phase and the new Director will ensure continued place as a pioneer in the tech space.  This role will involve a blend of global media and analyst relations work, with an emphasis on US & Canadian-based contacts, as well as investor communications and public relations.

      • Global media and analyst relations experience with an emphasis on US-based and Canadian-based contacts 
      • Investor communications
      • Executive communications experience in technology (ideally software/SaaS), ideally with both private and public companies
      • People leadership experience (teams of 2+ direct reports, preferably at manager-level)
      • Agency work experience is considered an asset
      • Experience in Technology Analyst Relations with companies such as Gartner and Forrester
        • a proven track record of creating an open dialogue that positively influences analysts’ perceptions and research rankings of company strategy, product, platform, and performance (note that approximately 30% to 50% of the role will involve analyst relations)

How Much: Base salary commensurate with experience, starting at $125,000 Cdn and upwards from there, plus a healthy target bonus, great benefits, and other perks. And how do you put a number on working with some of the most innovative minds in Canada?
