Snowball Effect is looking for a Marketing Manager to join our energetic and growing team. If you’re the right sort of person, you’ll be passionate about developing the New Zealand capital markets, enjoy working with a diverse range of investors and companies, and want to be part of a high performing growth company in an emerging and dynamic new market.
At this stage, our target market is the growth sector – typically businesses with several million dollars in revenue, and seeking anywhere from $1m - $10m in capital to fund growth. Snowball Effect has an investor audience of ~18,500 investors, with ~1,400 certified as ‘wholesale investors’.
It is important that we develop a pipeline of high quality companies wanting to raise capital, then tailor the best solution to that company.
We’re hiring a Head of Digital Marketing to lead the ongoing development of Snowball Effect’s marketplace, and more specifically the task of marketing Snowball Effect and investment opportunities to a wide and varied audience. You will be working in tandem with other members of the team, both on the marketplace and database development (IT) as well companies that are making offers through our platform.
You will have ideally had at least 6-8 years of digital marketing experience, particularly focused on email marketing and analytics, as well as online search. You will enjoy making decisions quickly and have a track record of delivering outstanding results. You may also have had some project management experience, or have developed skills that make you suited to ensuring that multiple parties are working together to deliver as planned.

We’re on a mission to simplify investment into high growth Kiwi companies. Snowball Effect is a marketplace that simplifies access to a range of alternative investment opportunities. We do this by facilitating offers of securities through public offers, private offers, and wholesale investor offers. Over our 4.5 years of operation we have raised more than $45m of capital.
More broadly, our vision is to have a significant impact on the New Zealand capital markets. We see an opportunity to provide investors with easy access to financial products, while also providing tools for them to manage their portfolio and engage directly with the companies and sectors of interest. For companies, it’s a complete capital raising package and access to a wide investor audience, so it’s a quick and efficient way to raise funds. We see the opportunity to provide fresh thinking and technology to a relatively stagnant industry.
We’re driven by the significant positive impact we can make by building a thriving marketplace to connect growth companies with the capital, services and people they need.
This is a critical leadership position within Snowball Effect, and will play a key role in developing an important part of New Zealand’s capital markets.
Snowball Effect benefits from world class directors and advisors. Day to day we’re a small team of 8 with a flat structure. Everyone in the team has a specific role, with each role commanding significant responsibility. As a company we’re focused, with a clear plan of where we’re heading. We expect performance of the highest calibre, and we’re confident that our remuneration is representative of the investment we expect from each member of the team in Snowball Effect’s success.
We’re here for the long term, and this role provides the right person with an opportunity to play not only a critical role in driving business growth, but also to shape the future of New Zealand’s capital markets.
