Job Description

At QuantAQ, our mission is to mitigate global air pollution.

As a company, we value the role that fundamental scientific and engineering research play in developing new technologies while doing so with the knowledge that what we build must scale if we want to meet our goals.

At QuantAQ, we provide access to professional-grade air quality data to a variety of clients (including research, government, and the private sector) to empower informed decision-making and to create cleaner (air) outcomes. We provide our clients with everything they need to build and manage distributed air quality sensor networks at scale including our proprietary air quality sensors (developed through years of R+D at MIT and Aerodyne Research) and our integrated software platform. We care deeply about using innovative technologies and socio-technological approaches to help businesses, governments, and community stakeholders obtain actionable air quality information across a variety of contexts.

If you're looking for an opportunity that allows you to highlight your own skills and solve one of society's most pressing environmental challenges, we would love to hear from you. To learn more about QuantAQ, check out our Climatetech Summit video.


What we're looking for

We are looking for a full-time Director of Marketing to join our rapidly growing team at QuantAQ. We’re a seed-stage startup with a rapidly expanding product-market fit. As the first marketing hire, you will start as an individual contributor with the opportunity to build your own team and grow into a management role as we grow. If that excites you, let’s talk!

In this role, you will be responsible for creating and executing a comprehensive marketing strategy that solidifies our brand and expands our reach. The ideal candidate is an experienced marketing leader who has a proven ability to tell compelling stories, has experience with hardware products and/or cleantech, and has an interest in working in the climate and environment space. If this sounds appealing, we would love to hear from you.

This position is remote-friendly, with options to work hybrid or in-person in Somerville, MA, or San Francisco, CA.



In this position, you will work directly with and report to the CEO. Responsibilities of this position include:

  • Develop and implement a comprehensive marketing strategy that aligns with QuantAQ’s overall goals and objectives. This includes creating customer personas for target audiences and developing campaigns that deliver messaging through a variety of channels.

  • Oversee and manage the marketing portion of our website. Work with engineering to implement changes as needed.

  • Oversee all marketing-related aspects of our digital marketing platform (HubSpot) and work with the Sales team to ensure any necessary processes or protocols are in place

  • Work with the product and executive teams to develop go-to-market communications for new products and other milestones.

  • Manage QuantAQ’s brand and reputation and ensure consistency across all platforms and communications materials.

  • Draft blog entries, PR, social media posts, and other forms of content to drive brand awareness. Identify topics relevant to our target audiences to write well-researched pieces that are consistent with our brand.

  • Manage relationships with marketing consultants and contractors to write blog articles, manage paid ads, and more.



Candidates need not meet all requirements below, but the more that you meet, the better match you may be for existing work. Learning new tools on the fly is expected, and hopefully part of the fun.

  • 6+ years of industry experience in marketing and communications

  • A proven track record of developing and executing successful marketing and communications strategies

  • Expertise in digital marketing and advertising
