About Us

We are on a mission to shake up marketing and make all brands think advocacy-first.

Marketing is at a crossroads. The status quo just isn’t working anymore. Third-party data is disappearing. Consumers are overwhelmed with noise. Businesses are frustrated by their over-dependence on Google and Facebook. Something needs to change. We’re putting advocacy at the heart of marketing.

Hot on the heels of closing our $25M Series B, we are building out our first office in the US. We are the European market leader and best funded player in our space. We’ve proven the value of customer referrals, having delivered more than 4.5M referrals and $1.5B of revenue to our 450 clients so far. Now we’re applying AI and machine learning to referral data to better understand who a brands’ most valuable customers are and to improve the performance of all other marketing channels and the wider customer experience.

We’re looking for a General Manager for the US to lead our expansion into North America. We’re looking for someone with a deep understanding of the martech ecosystem and proven experience of building a team and scaling a business in the US.
