Jul 13, 2023 - Peggy is hiring a remote Director of Growth. 📍Location: Canada.
Peggy is reenvisioning the art market by establishing Art 2.0. Our mission at Peggy is to support the livelihoods of artists. Why? Because artists are the ultimate observers of society with messages to share that create change. What does this mission look like in the world? A world with art in every home. A world where liquidity in the art market is accessible to middle-market collectors. A world where collectors support artists and their observations of the world, the messages they have to share, and the change they create. Peggy creates new opportunities within the art market by making investment-grade art accessible, filling the untapped gap of resale activity in the middle market and shifting benefits to artists by enabling resale royalties.
Being on the frontier takes visionary thinking, a flexible mindset and the ability to thrive in unchartered land. We value security, storytelling, straightforwardness and forward-thinking. Peggy is the place for you if you’re seeking personal and professional growth and to establish a new way of doing business in the art market.
As a seed-stage startup, Peggy does not offer a rigid corporate structure. If you crave the structure, clarity and predictability of traditional corporate environments, Peggy might not be a place where you’ll thrive. We operate in an ambiguous environment by being curious, placing bets, shipping fast and learning from the outcomes. We are light on processes at Peggy, instead favouring relationships of high trust achieved through high impact. At our stage, exceptional competencies centre around leading, owning and prioritizing work that achieves business strategies.

Caring deeply about what you do and about establishing Art 2.0
