  • Bring new and creative ideas to the table around acquisition, retention and growth.

Lead shared services marketing functions including Web, SEO, Agency marketing, Events and Office of Project Management. The services under your leadership also support the Small Business, Mid-Market and international teams.

  • Handle revenue-generating functions that support all channels.
  • Work cross functionally with key internal partners including Sales, Product, Finance, etc. 
  • Act as a primary collaborator with Product Marketing to ID product and partner requirements to fuel growth.

Who You Are 

  • Experienced B2B SaaS Marketing Leader
