Head of Marketing

“The best minds of my generation are spent trying to make people click ads. That sucks.” — Jeffrey Hammerbacher, founder of Cloudera, on why he left Facebook.

We are Toronto’s best kept secret — a company of intelligent, creative and driven technology professionals working for civic and social good.

We are passionate about making public libraries accessible, delightful and engaging. A lot of companies tout ‘social impact’, but at BiblioCommons we serve 6 million diverse users each month, and help them access publicly funded materials in their communities.

Libraries are more than just book stacks — they are public spaces that foster learning, connection, and community in an increasingly isolated world. BiblioCommons is bringing that community online with clever software that powers some of the world’s largest libraries.

We are creating software that transforms the experience of libraries, modernizing an essential public education service. With 6 million monthly users in 4 countries, we are looking for a Head of Marketing to craft our strategy, amplify our brand and grow our user base.  


As the Head of Marketing, you’ll build out the BiblioCommons brand— crafting a strategy to make us the go-to thought leader in online library spaces. You will work cross-functionally with product and design leadership on vision and strategy. One of your key initiatives will be to help Library Directors understand and embrace our vision for the future of public libraries.

  • Develop creative thought-leadership campaigns aimed at building our user base of librarians across North America, Australia and New Zealand
  • Define messaging and positioning for the BiblioCommons brand
  • Build best practices for libraries, leveraging independant and existing research to lead the market
