FR Executive is working in partnership with Peak to recruit a world class CMO to help them become the global leader in the data analytics-as-a-service space.

This is as exciting as tech opportunities get, with the business recognised by PwC this year as one of 12 global B2B tech businesses with fast growth potential.


Peak is a data analytics machine powered by brilliant minds. There are lots of data analytics companies and services, but none quite like us. We were born from a belief that no-one else does data analytics quite right.

Some clean data, some crunch data, some analyse data, some draw insights from data and some make recommendations based on data. We do all of that for our clients and, with our subscription approach, we do it continuously, transforming data into amazing opportunities.

There’s a lot of clever technology behind Peak, but that’s only half of the story. Our people let us make the most of that technology. Yes, they create it and use it, but they also interpret the results that our technology delivers, providing insights and straightforward recommendations to improve the performance of businesses based on data our clients provide.

We were founded in November 2014. Since then, we’ve grown rapidly and, in 2015, were recognised by Tech North as one of the ‘top tech start-ups in the UK’ through winning the Northern Stars competition. In 2016, we opened a development centre in Jaipur, India, completed a round of £1m seed funding and partnered with cloud engineering firm and Amazon Web Services Big Data Partner Cloudit.


Our vision is to create a new market segment, based on a unique product/service offering to solve our customers’ business problems through data, and to become the global leader in this exciting new segment.

We want to build a global tech champion, based in Manchester, and we’re well on our way. We’ve just raised a series A round through some of the most respected early stage investors in the UK and we’re growing at the same rate as fastest growing global SaaS companies did at our stage.


We’re seeking to create a culture of innovation and entrepreneurial spirit, where our employees drive the business to succeed, and make a direct and meaningful contribution to our success daily. Most importantly, we enjoy the work we do.

We believe in an open, transparent and friendly relationship with our clients and co-workers. As individuals, we are approachable and trustworthy; as a company, we are highly committed to our clients and employees. We listen to and gain a deep understanding of our clients’ needs, whilst being reliable with a strong work ethic.

We take pride in our work, which is always of the upmost quality, and we are confident in our ability and expertise.


Marketing is being massively invested in, and we need someone brilliant to lead it. We want to build the most advanced growth marketing function in the world, using our own technology and techniques to help us grow at pace on the global stage.

You’ll have already grown a SaaS business from the ground up and be eager to do it again, but better.  You’ll be able to show that you have built a global brand and directly increased revenue through marketing activity.  You’ll be hands-on, extremely driven and you’ll have a passion for data and know how to use it

This is a fantastic opportunity for you to play a key role in growing one of the hottest UK tech companies.
