About the role

We are a digital health company focused on bettering care and accelerating cures for patients with ALS. We are hiring for our first full-time Marketing position, reporting directly to the CEO. At this early stage, you will have a great impact and will be responsible for cultivating our company voice, developing unique and compelling content, devising and implementing growth strategies, and synthesizing site and marketing analytics.

ALS is a 100% terminal illness affecting roughly 6,000 new people per year in the U.S. alone. The care system for this highly complex disease is broken. Every ALS patient needs specialized care, though many never gain access to a specialist. Novel therapies are even harder to come by. Although there are many active clinical trials, by the time most patients get diagnosed and are deemed eligible for trials, they have progressed too far to qualify and are deprived of potential therapies.

Synapticure is on a mission to change that. We’re reinventing the end-to-end experience for patients with ALS and, eventually, for those with other neurodegenerative diseases. We believe that progressive care with comprehensive testing not only improves lives; it unlocks data and insights that will significantly accelerate drug discovery and development, and–ultimately–transform ALS into a disease that can be managed, with individualized, targeted treatment programs.

As Growth Marketing Manager, you will be responsible for generating our inbound leads to hit aggressive growth targets, as well as educating current and future patients and partners on our product. We are looking for a versatile team player who can wear many hats, with the ultimate goals of reaching new patients in ALS and other neurodegenerative diseases; establishing Synapticure's thought leadership in topics like virtual care in neurodegenerative disease; and boosting patient outcomes with integrated Virtual Care, Hospital at Home, and integrated remote patient monitoring.

We’d love for you to join us.
