Marketing Specialist

Yokohama, Japan

At a Glance:

At On, we believe it’s not the human body that determines whether you cross the finish line, reach the peak or dare to dream the big idea - it’s the human spirit. When we run, move, and explore, we access reserves of performance that go way beyond the physical. We discover a capacity to dream bigger. And we start to see that we can make that dream a reality.

We are looking for an entrepreneurial and hands-on Marketing Specialist to join our Japanese Marketing Team based in Yokohama. You will manage and coordinate the end-to-end delivery of product campaigns in Japan.

As a sports brand that is born in the Swiss Alps and with running at its core, the Japan team at On is a fast-paced place to be with a great desire to explore. We’re the friend who shows you where to find city adventures, the run crew captain who won’t let you slow into the finish, the trail runner who pushes you to the summit to soak up the sunrise. We love getting to know our community and finding out what they want and need. We’re always looking for new, interesting ways to communicate our products - so if you have an idea that could be our new secret weapon, speak up and run with it (literally)!We’re big thinkers and change-makers, constantly reinventing how we do things - questioning the status quo and finding new ideas to try as inspiration strikes us. This role is based in Yokohama, Japan.

  • You know your way around 360° marketing campaigns and have an understanding of brand story-telling and how to bring this to life.
  • You can see the bigger picture, but you know it's the fine details that really matter.
