Our NFT platform token, OGN, is traded globally on Coinbase, Binance, Huobi, and other exchanges (https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/origin-protocol/). Our OUSD governance token, OGV, will launch soon and be immediately tradable on additional top exchanges.


We are looking for an experienced VP of Marketing to lead Origin’s global marketing strategy.

Origin is a global and community-centric project, so the ability to coordinate with regional managers across multiple timezones is critical.

As a marketing leader, you will measure and report progress against marketing goals. You must have a strong bias for making data-driven decisions and prefer measurable campaigns over unaccountable marketing spend.

You should be a creative and tenacious problem solver who sweats the details. You should have a broad range of skills across the marketing spectrum, including:

  • Strategic planning and execution
  • Recruiting and hiring
  • Analytics and conversion funnels
  • Pay per click advertising
  • Social media and content marketing
  • Retargeting, custom audiences and hyper-targeting

  • Deep familiarity with the blockchain ecosystem and participants
