Director of Marketing
You are a passionate B2B marketing communications expert, able to leap integrated marketing strategies in a single bound. You are a self-motivated and tenacious problem-solver, seeking out every opportunity to promote the company’s vision, optimize marketing operations, and delight customers with creative campaigns that break through the clutter. You are a roll-up-your-sleeves “do-er” with an innate sense of urgency and a bias toward action. You have had success building and nurturing a team, sharing your expertise and experience while fostering the talents of individual contributors. The rigors, hours, ups and downs of startup life are attractive to you because you believe in a vision, and you genuinely want the company you work for and your contributions to make an impact. You checked your ego at the door and your decisions are based on what is best for customers, the company, and your team.
