8BARS – Marketing Lead (UK)

8BARS is a new mobile platform for the music community, currently focused on the UK hip-hop, rap and R&B scene. We are seeking to democratise talent discovery, connect artists with their fans in exciting new ways and provide real and meaningful opportunities for artists, wherever they are in their journey.

We are a diverse team with deep experience across mobile, gaming, music and talent management. The company is backed by a top group of music, entertainment and hip hop investors.

Our offices are located in London but we hire and empower talent wherever they choose to live!

Your Job at 8BARS

As a Marketing Lead, in close collaboration with the founders, you will develop the app-growth strategy, understand our market and inform our roadmap and its execution. You will work closely with the development team on building a strong brand positioning and guarantee its cohesiveness across product and marketing assets/campaigns. You will be in direct contact with our community through face to face interactions, the 8BARS app and other channels with the aim of translating their needs and thoughts into actions to drive growth.

Who are you
  • You have experience in a marketing leadership role. The eventual goal is to build an internal team and work with agencies as needed
  • You are someone who understands the fundamental ingredients of building an impactful brand
  • You are someone who likes to keep busy and finds ways to add value (to the company or your skillset) if there is time between tasks/initiatives
  • You have experience with online advertising, social media and/or influencer marketing
  • You have a track record of building user growth through traditional and non-traditional channels
  • You understand the mobile marketing funnel and user journey from Advert to install, and beyond

  • You can write a clear brief for internal stakeholders or external audiences/agencies
  • To be clear, we’ve listed a number of areas across all of Marketing.
