Ripplematch (201-500 Employees, 128% 2 Yr Employee Growth Rate)
RippleMatch is a platform for early career hiring that helps build diverse teams and hire the right talent virtually.
Working at RippleMatch:
At RippleMatch, we build technology to make early-career hiring more effective while increasing access to opportunity. Figuring out where to begin your career is a difficult and overwhelming decision. Traditional career services and job boards with millions of postings aren’t very helpful. It’s also not a fair contest. For many students, opportunity is limited based on where they attend school and their personal networks. RippleMatch is changing this. Our platform is a two-sided marketplace — on one side, we help early-career candidates from around the country discover job opportunities that match their skills and interests without effort. On the other side, RippleMatch helps hundreds of employers like Amazon, eBay, and Teach for America hire top talent virtually and build diverse teams. We have a technical product that leverages automation and intelligent workflows to make finding your dream job or hiring the right candidate easier, faster, and fairer than ever before. Since launching RippleMatch from a college dorm room in 2016, we’ve raised $34 million in venture funding, grown to 1 million+ users from 1300+ colleges & universities, and brought on hundreds of leading employers as customers. Our tight-knit team of 60+ talented people works hard, celebrates wins, and cares deeply about changing the way finding a job works.
NYC or Remote:
RippleMatch has a NYC headquarters but follows a remote-first working policy. What does this mean? You can come into our NYC office everyday, once in a while or very rarely! RippleMatch will keep eastern hours as a company and we will expect any remote employee to have consistent high-speed WiFi access and maintain full time residency in the United States. Creating strong bonds between RippleMatch team members means a lot to us and we are investing heavily in creating opportunities to make sure remote employees get plenty of in-person time. We offer in-person onboarding, travel benefits and virtual team building activities!
The Role: We are looking for an exceptional product marketing leader to drive effective storytelling throughout marketing, sales, and customer success and work with our CEO, product, and revenue leaders to define our long term brand positioning. What you’ll do:
As Director of Product Marketing, you will be responsible for crafting the story of how RippleMatch works for prospects, buyers, and users. Your job will be to decide how to best position our overall brand and determine the product positioning that is likely to make RippleMatch a leader in the early-career recruitment space. You will hit the ground running in the areas we already have traction, take a number of areas from zero to one, and hire talented product marketers to support you. You will also collaborate closely with the Marketing, Sales, and Customer Success teams within the organization to successfully roll out all developed product marketing and make sure that we are telling one cohesive story.
Who you are:
- An exceptional storyteller with 5+ years of product marketing experience, including 3+ years of managing a Product Marketing team

Culture & Perks:
At RippleMatch, we understand that our success stems from the people we have on board, which is why we invest heavily in our team’s well-being and growth. We offer a full slate of perks including equity, a dog friendly office, paid vacation, discounted memberships to Class Pass, a pre-tax commuter program, discounted Citi Bike memberships and comprehensive healthcare benefits (with free plan options!). We work hard to foster a culture of constant self-improvement, true ownership, and positivity. At our core, we are a tight-knit team that works hard, celebrates wins, and cares deeply about changing the way finding a job works. We are going to fundamentally transform the hiring landscape and won’t settle for anything less.
Our office is conveniently located near Union Square in Manhattan, NYC, but we’re a remote-first working environment. Our employees are given a lot of flexibility and have the option to be fully remote or to come and go in the office as they please. We have cultural benefits for both our in person and virtual “offices”!
To ensure the health and safety of our team, RippleMatch does require proof of vaccination for all employees entering the New York City office and any in-person company event. RippleMatch is accommodating of all medical and religious exemptions.
