  • Evaluate and recommend new technologies to improve marketing performance
  • Develop and maintain metrics and scorecards to monitor marketing performance in partnership with sales and revenue operations
  • Proactively explore data to find trends, discover relevant insights, and present analysis and findings to a variety of audiences
  • Ensure our marketing stack and processes are in compliance with relevant privacy regulations
  • Own recurring marketing funnel and performance reports

What you’ll need to be successful:

  • Bachelor’s Degree in a related field preferred, plus 3+ years of experience in marketing operations, sales operations or a similar role
  • Excellent analytical skills including mastery of Microsoft Excel and experience in data analysis and building dashboards and reports
  • Hands on experience with marketing automation systems, Marketo preferred, and integrating those systems with other technologies
  • SalesForce experience is a must
  • You know that no job is too big or too small for you and you have the ability to handle multiple projects at the same time in a fast-paced environment
  • Good understanding of web technology as it pertains to marketing and related technologies
  • Ability and desire to grow your technical skill set through self-directed learning, structured training experiences, and coaching from colleagues
  • Conversely – an eagerness to share your own knowledge and skills with team members

    An Insider's view of Kazoo

    What makes someone successful on your team?

    Communication is incredibly important in a distributed engineering organization. We rely heavily on collaborative practices like code review and paired-programming to get our work done.

    Fearlessly diving into the arena "unknown unknowns" can be intimidating, but is required for some of the more difficult software problems a team is solving.
