What We Do

We are building a global cryptocurrency wallet and exchange. Our mission is to eliminate the barriers to entry and open the blockchain economy to everyone. We're taking a new and exciting approach to the user experience to ensure anyone can participate with confidence.


We also bring Personal Blockchains to the world. Personal Blockchains are an application of blockchain technology allowing for proof of integrity between the user and our service. They represent a new standard of accountability where any single user has the power to hold us accountable for every transaction, no matter how large our company grows. For more information on Personal Blockchains, please visit https://welcome.symetria.io.


Symetria is the first to implement Personal Blockchains, but we're offering it freely to the world, and our goal is to spread the idea to other industries -- to change the way business is done.


Where we are

As a start-up, we have been working on communications through an “all-hands on deck” approach, across several channels. We have done some social media marketing and content marketing through a blog channel with reasonable output resonance. We have also dabbled with social ads, only to be cut-off by the ban for anything related to cryptocurrency on most leading social media platforms and have sent out a press release.


As we near the launch of our MVP, we are at a stage where the communications and PR activity needs to become a strategically-driven concerted effort to build awareness of and convert users to Symetria as a wallet and exchange. We also want to spread the word about our core technology, Personal Blockchains, and build excitement around a potential token release. This all needs to be expertly done in close coordination with the Chief Marketing Officer and the Development Team.


What we need

We need someone who will hit the ground running by immersing themselves in all things cryptocurrency, Symetria and Personal Blockchains, taking stock of our communications efforts to date, and picking up from there to change direction and pace as needed.


As the communications lead, you will be a critical hire for the growing marketing team and will be empowered to develop and execute strategic multi-channel

communications campaigns to help meet our objective of becoming a leading cryptocurrency wallet and exchange both by user-base and trade volume.

  • Work with CMO and wider marketing team to formulate a content strategy, build a content pipeline and editorial calendar that supports marketing objectives.
  • Create targeted content that generates a measurable ROI for use across all marketing communications channels.
  • Establish and maintain all internal and external communication processes and document best practices.
  • Nurture and develop media relationships with key press partners to secure coverage in leading tech, blockchain, cryptocurrency and general financial news publications, news sites and journals.
  • Produce newsworthy content that is consistent with brand messaging while building out and manage a team of freelance writers to support broader communication needs.
  • Work collaboratively with social media manager and community developer.
  • Remain up to date with industry news and developments to ensure we remain part of the conversation and generate new ideas that are topical.
  • Develop systems to ensure that communications are compliant with all relevant laws and regulations (e.g. working with external counsel to build awareness of, and compliance with cryptocurrency laws, data protection, etc.).
  • Use content management and CRM systems to analyze customer engagement.


Summary of Role

As the Communications Manager, your job revolves around working in coordination with the CMO to create, oversee and implement internal and external communication programs that promote Symetria and our products. As a fully-funded startup we are looking for a self-motivated communications specialist that is adept at building and executing upon processes whilst navigating a fast-paced and dynamic market.
