Head of EMEA

Job description

Linktree is the market leading linking platform. In 2020 alone we grew from 3 to 10 million users (now over 12 million!). The platform enables brands, artists, publishers, agencies, creators and small businesses to curate an online ecosystem, instantly guiding their audience to the destinations that they care about.

With an already global customer base, we are looking for someone to lead our entry into and growth across EMEA. With our team currently spread across Australia, USA, Brazil and Indonesia this role will be based in the UK and work fully remotely until we are ready (and Covid allows us) to open an office. 

At Linktree, hybrid work has brought team culture and mental health front and centre to our culture. We are more focused than ever on providing tools and creating initiatives that enable open communication and prioritise employee wellbeing — from creating rituals around sharing daily goals and activities, to making sure our staff has the appropriate digital tools to stay connected and motivated, and achieving a work/life balance.

This role would suit someone with experience at early-stage startups that has developed the strategies and operational structure to bring products or companies to new markets, and then scale.


In this role you would:

  • Create and implement localized strategies for the Linktree to enter and thrive in each region
  • Build a hiring roadmap and work closely with Linktree HQ to hire top talent for the region under your management
  • Represent Linktree as a market leader in EMEA and lead partnerships with platforms and brands to expand Linktree’s reach in EMEA
  • Have P&L ownership for the region’s performance
  • Collaborate with social, content and growth marketing teams to ensure Linktree’s channels for EMEA operate effectively, including socials, content and broader growth tactics
  • Collaborate with other regional and country managers to learn from each other's successes and failures 
  • Generate and present reports on subscription numbers, marketing performance, support and external market factors to the leadership team

We are looking for:

  • Experience in Head of Country or Region roles within EMEA at tech startups
  • Previous team and people management experience, including building/scaling a team
  • Someone that can demonstrate their strategic approach to marketing and growth in previous roles

Our company culture

We hire with a people-first approach, so more importantly as a human, you will be collaborative, curious, enjoy solving complex problems and have empathy for the growing pains of a rapidly scaling startup.

Linktree's company culture and values are based around collaboration, diversity, inclusion, and flexibility. Those are all nice words but to give you some more specific examples:

  • We are a family-friendly and flexible work environment with our team with a number of our team working hours around school and home commitments.
  • We have several diversity and inclusion initiatives underway, including a D&I council, training for all staff on neurodiversity, unconscious bias and the incorporation of a transgender inclusion policy.
  • Our team is diverse across age, gender, and race and we are very proud of that.
  • All Linktree staff work either fully remote or a hybrid remote and in office sometimes, even when COVID is behind us
  • We prioritise our team's mental health, with all employees have free access to Smiling Mind & Uprise, including 1:1 coaching sessions from qualified psychologists or counsellors.

The Linktree story:

The Linktree journey begins in 2016 when co-founders Alex, Anthony and Nick were running a digital agency and using Instagram to make announcements about the artists they managed. Created as a side hustle to solve a simple problem, Linktree has well outgrown its roots, with over 12 million users worldwide, 30,000 + new signups every day, and over 120 million unique views per month. Paired with rapid growth, Linktree has recently garnered much attention in the tech world, earning 4th place on Fast Company's "10 most innovative social media companies of 2020".

In March 2021, Linktree raised $45 million in Series B Funding led by Index Ventures and Coatue on top of our Series A with Insight Partners and AirTree. The funding will be used to expand headcount globally, develop product features and go towards making Linktree the best possible place to work for our staff.

The Linktree audience is broad, spanning publications, artists, celebrities, fashion and beauty influencers, YouTube stars, sports teams and household brands, right the way through to individuals with a side hustle and micro-influencers. Linktree subscribers include TikTok, Facebook, ClassPass, Patreon, Zapier, Katy Perry, Selena Gomez, Pharrell, Jamie Oliver, HBO, Red Bull, Adult Swim, Cara Delevingne, Comedy Central, Gordon Ramsay, Billabong…and many more!
