Kickstarter is the go-to crowdfunding platform for creative projects across everything from film, games and music to art, design, and technology. Fueled by the support of our team, our mission to help bring creative projects to life has been a core tenet since our inception in 2009. 

As of November 2023, we have helped more than 249,000 creative projects reach their funding goal with pledges totalling more than $7.6 billion dollars. We continue to be committed to the growth and success of not only our community, but our team as well. Rooted in shared values, Kickstarter sees team members as whole people, giving every individual the autonomy and space to participate in decisions that impact them.

Kickstarter is seeking a Senior Outreach Lead, Comics to join our Outreach team. This role reports to the Senior Manager, Outreach.

The salary for this role in the United States is $95,000 - $110,000.


In this role, you will:


  • Build and strengthen relationships with comics creators in Kickstarter’s community and connect with promising creators who could use Kickstarter to bring exemplary projects to life.
  • Track creator conversations using Kickstarter’s CRM and maintain service-level agreement (SLAs) around considering priority creators for curation and outreach support.
  • Help creators craft strong campaigns, advise on launch strategy, and connect them to relevant community resources.
  • Develop and refine comics community–specific educational resources and surface to appropriate creators in collaboration with other teams at Kickstarter.
  • Establish and strengthen relationships with institutions and partners in the Comics ecosystem to build Kickstarter’s referral pipeline.
  • Contribute to Kickstarter’s strategy for events within the comics community, attending as a representative of Kickstarter, communicating with creators and industry audiences both one-on-one and through public speaking opportunities.
  • Make the case for Kickstarter in a competitive funding landscape and gather intelligence about alternate paths to funding that comics creators are pursuing.
  • Serve as an internal champion for the needs of comics creators, surfacing feedback around product, policy, and experience to internal stakeholders and collaborating on cross-team initiatives that aim to improve creators’ experiences.
  • Use Kickstarter’s comics curation channels to celebrate creators’ work and coordinate marketing features on brand channels for priority creators.


About You


  • You have at least 5 years of deep, professional experience working in the comics community, including a network of connections in comics, and industry knowledge about how creative work is funded.
  • You have a demonstrated ability to align with strategic objectives and get data-driven results. This includes tracking goals and budgets that level up to company and team strategies.
  • You have exceptional communication skills and are adept at presenting to small and large groups, speaking to the press, and have the ability to represent Kickstarter in a positive light at industry events.
  • You have a demonstrated presence within the comics community through playing a central role at key events, developing a compelling online presence, writing thought pieces, or making other meaningful contributions to helping independent creators and institutions succeed.
  • You have a strong sense of what makes crowdfunding projects succeed and the ability to assess quality, innovation, creativity, and clarity of presentation when reviewing a campaign.
  • Bonus points if you have experience bringing projects to life on Kickstarter as a creator, campaign consultant, or backer.


What You'll Enjoy


  • A fully remote workforce with plenty of opportunities to get to know your colleagues
  • 100% employer-paid health plan offerings
  • 16 paid vacation days, 10 sick days, and a company-wide winter break between Christmas and New Years
