As the Director, Investor Relations at Thinkific, you’ll directly engage internal and external stakeholders, from our senior leadership team, teams across Thinkific, buy-side and sell-side analysts, and investors. In this role, you’ll support the development and implementation of Thinkific’s investor relations (IR) strategy, work to support and communicate our sustainability and social impact programs, and collaborate with our PR team to build a strong investor communication strategy.

  • Monitor market information to iterate on the IR strategy, policies, and programs as needed
  • Engage and develop strong relationships with the investment community, including both the sell-side and buy-side

  • Own investor communications, including responding to queries from the financial community as well as institutional and retail shareholders, in addition to managing corporate press releases from end-to-end
  • Analyze sell-side analyst reports and market opinions on the company and provide summaries and analysis to management and internal stakeholders, sharing feedback as needed
  • Prepare monthly IR reports focused on peer monitoring, shareholder ownership analytics for senior management, in addition to ad-hoc reports as requested
