James Walpole
Interested in Intermediate Marketing & Entry level Sales roles
Let me help you build your startup's brand and marketing operations from scratch.

As a startup marketer for four and a half years, I’ve become a marketing MacGyver for a company that has seen all the ups and downs - firefighting PR crises, writing up content, launching products, shipping emails, riding the social media waves, and even donning a mascot costume a few times.

I believe in blue-collar practicality, (extreme) ownership, (actual) integrity, and a sense of playfulness in marketing as in life. I eat startup chaos for breakfast and turn it into wisdom (if I’m lucky) which I try to write about every day at jameswalpole.com.
