Your mission will be to lead our Ecosystem team. You will build new growth engines for HoneyBook that leverage our ecosystem - Our community and potential partners.

Be a growth hacker. Identify and optimize new growth engines. Deeply understand early customers’ needs to create an amazing early activation experience. The goal will be to build a strong funnel end to end.
Be a strong operator. Flawlessly execute on the details of your strategies to ensure product launches, feature updates, and other initiatives are delivered on time, on budget, with exceptional craftsmanship.
Be a connector. You will live at the intersection of marketing and product development, and focus on customer acquisition through activation.
