Senior Director of Product (Killi)- Toronto

Freckle is currently seeking an experienced Senior Director of Product for our consumer application Killi. The product lead will take ownership of the Killi app and brand and manage the rapid growth of the technology and consumer base.

Killi is a consumer-facing mobile application that allows people to opt-in to take back control of their personal data and enter into direct financial contracts with brands and advertisers via the blockchain. Killi directly tackles the issues of personal data breaches and massive corporations getting rich by selling their customers’ data in exchange for, well, nothing. Killi also provides a transparent market solution in the face of growing cries for government regulation around the collection and use of personal data.
