The Duckbill Group is a small and growing company looking for its first full-time marketing hire to level up our marketing.
Why now? Simply put, our business is growing and we’ve taken our marketing machine as far as it can go given our expertise and time. We’re looking for someone far better than we are to dedicate themselves to improving our marketing.
Duckbill presents a unique challenge for a product marketer: we operate three distinct lines-of-business with their own customer personas, GTM strategy, and sales approach. Each line of business works together, feeding each other and growing each other. Those lines of business are:
Your work will primarily focus on our consulting and SaaS at first, and we expect you’ll naturally begin splitting time evenly between them after a while.
You will be our first full-time marketing hire, taking over the duty from one of our founders (the CEO, whom you’ll report to). This gives you the opportunity to shape a marketing function as it grows from its early days. You will be expected to get your hands dirty and execute on the plans you create. Our expectation is that you will figure out new ways for us to grow our audience and better reach our prospective customers, which will naturally lead to a mix of contractors, agencies, and additional staff as we grow.
While “first marketing hire” causes some to dread the conversations around convincing everyone marketing is important, we’re happy to say you won’t have any of those issues here. We’re all big believers in the value and power of effective marketing here.
Some example upcoming projects
Compensation & Benefits
Compensation for this role ranges between $120,000 and $140,000 per year depending on experience; we do not provide equity.
We provide a 401(k) with a 100% match up to 6% of your salary. The 401(k) vests immediately, too.
We provide healthcare, vision, and dental with premiums fully covered by the company. Of course trans benefits are covered; trans rights are human rights. Dependents are covered 50%.
“Unlimited PTO” is often misused to pressure employees into taking less vacation than they should, so we offer 3 weeks of PTO that accrue monthly, plus unlimited sick leave.
“Paid parental leave” is challenging for a small company. Being a parent is far more challenging, so we of course offer paid parental leave for new parents of any gender.
We provide an allowance of up to $3,000 for setting up your home office, or we’ll cover the cost of a membership at a coworking space.
We look for three things in every candidate: smart, humble, and hungry. That is, we actively seek out people to join us who are emotionally intelligent, desire to build up the team rather than solely themselves, and passionately pursue goals and outcomes.
We are a fully remote company with team members in San Francisco, Portland, NYC, and more. We’re a small company (you’d be employee #9!) and a young company (our two year anniversary is March 1, 2021).
We are not venture-funded, and have no intention of becoming so. We’re financed instead by the magic of revenue and profitability. We focus on growing steadily and remaining profitable as we do.
Diversity & Inclusion
We’re building a diverse and inclusive workplace where we learn from each other. We hire adults. We value transparency, autonomy, experimentation, and kind, direct feedback. We welcome nontraditional candidates, and people of all backgrounds, experiences, abilities and perspectives. We’re an equal opportunity employer and our hiring process is structured to put you at ease and help you demonstrate your best work. If we are doing a poor job of this at any time, please let us know. We hire for strengths, not absence of weakness. Come do great things with us.
