Growth and Product Marketing

Sorry this position is filled.

Do you enjoy doing big things fast? Are you happy digging into the needs of a market and then solving them? Are you excited to build a company’s marketing function from the ground up?

We are a software startup building Grist, a next generation spreadsheet-database. You’ll be joining the unique combination of a small team in early stages of growth, and a well-developed ambitious product with great potential. Our customers love Grist. They are the driving force that brings joy to our work.

We are looking for a friendly, creative, experienced marketer to drive Grist’s growth and product marketing — to bring value to many more people.

We have a great team, and enjoy working together. We value our people. We provide generous compensation, paid vacation, and comprehensive healthcare, dental, and vision benefits. You will receive an equity package too.

As the first marketing hire, you’ll have a huge amount of autonomy igniting growth, crafting marketing strategy that’s flexible and doable, and executing it. We’ll ask you to determine market needs, how to position ourselves, and how to tell our story – and then to go do it. Ultimately, your goal will be to develop and execute a coherent marketing plan. You don’t have to be an expert in everything, but we expect you to understand the many pillars of marketing, and help us identify and find complementary skills as the company grows in the longer term.

You’ll be joining a committed team of proven startup builders. We have a few qualities we can’t live without:

  • You’re a product marketer with a generalist bent and a let’s-figure-it-out / roll-up-your-sleeves attitude.
  • You know how to gauge market demand + product opportunity; articulate the strategy, messaging, and positioning to meet it; and develop the channels to do so.
  • You’re comfortable working fast wearing many hats and taking an iterative approach.
  • You’re comfortable working with modern marketing tools and methodologies.
  • Ideally, you’ve seen growth at a startup before.
