Head of Marketing-Bloom
Are you looking to join a rapidly growing startup on a mission to change the aging narrative and redefine retirement for adults 50+? Are you passionate about building community, tackling big challenges, and ready to roll up your sleeves? If so, this may be the right opportunity for you.
Who Is Bloom& How Are They Changing the World?
Bloom is a community of adults 50+ learning, connecting and redefining a new phase of life. They’re on a mission to change the aging narrative and redefine retirement. Many of us spend longer planning a 2-week vacation than we do planning for our retirement. And although there’s plenty of tools and services available to help us prepare to transition financially, there’s not much out there to help us with all the other transitions that we’ll experience.
Who will I become when I retire - when I’ve given up my current identity, knowledge, and power? How do I find meaning and purpose? How do I handle the changing relationships with my children, family, and friends? How can I overcome old habits and the self-sabotaging thoughts that no longer serve me?
These issues remain out of traditional retirement planning conversations, so we end up without a plan for the mental, social, physical, and spiritual aspects of retirement that many of us are faced with.
This is why Bloom was founded. To unravel the wide range of thoughts and feelings that can surface - even those that are hard to talk about - and create a safe and welcoming space to explore them together.
Backed by top tier venture capitalists in NYC and SF, this Toronto based company is now seeking a growth-oriented Head of Marketing to take them to the next level!

Team Building: You’ll lead, coach, and grow the Marketing team as you create alignment and set priorities, all while making every person on the team a better marketer
Marketing Analytics: You’ll establish clear KPIs and processes for reporting on the effectiveness of marketing efforts and leverage marketing analytics to empower data-informed decisions
