Why Fyllo

At Fyllo we are on a mission to accelerate the economies of tomorrow. What does that mean? Our technology platform enables high-growth companies to reach and understand consumers, activate marketing and loyalty programs across multiple channels, and navigate today’s ever-changing regulatory landscape.

We have created the world’s largest data marketplace of cannabis and CBD purchase data along with a market-leading regulatory database that is used by Fortune 500 companies and emerging brands in highly-regulated industries like cannabis, crypto, short term rentals and more.

Having been founded in 2019, we have closed our Series C and raised 100 million to date. 2022 has proved to be another big year with our acquisition of Semasio based in the EU, so that together we will continue to grow our footprint globally. Semasio is a Unified Targeting provider that enables digital advertising professionals to reach their target audience by seamlessly combining audience, contextual and brand fit solutions into one targeting strategy. If you are someone who has a bias to act and believes in having more fun together, then read on!

Your Role

We are seeking a VP of Product Design to lead our growing UX/D team.

This is an exciting opportunity to have a major impact on all of the products within the Fyllo portfolio and help shape the future of our offering. 

A successful candidate will be able to work through early-stage ambiguity and roadmap prioritization to establish a clear vision, anticipating future needs to ensure design strategies and systems are scalable to meet new demands.
