Why We’re Hiring For This Role
Our fastest-growing customer segment is mid-market teams of 101 to 1,000 people. We’re one of the few purpose-built solutions in our category that offers a click-to-trial product—making us the ideal choice to effectively serve growing teams within organizations.
Our mission over the next 12 months is to build the largest cheer squad of people planners, and we’re hiring a Senior Growth Marketer to help us get there.
You're a data-driven growth expert with experience leading top-of-funnel acquisition programs in SaaS. You’re a whizz at optimization and a growth partner to product and content marketers.
You thrive on experimentation and trying new-user acquisition strategies beyond traditional paid marketing—and you’re confident with building the frameworks for this. You’re a champion of results and learnings, not vanity metrics.
Until now, our Director of Marketing has managed our paid marketing. It’s an opportune time for an expert like you to take the reins and spearhead the strategic delivery of our 7-figure annual acquisition budget. We’ve also got a growing 130K email database of prospects, trials, and customers for you to experiment with—and fantastic product and content marketing peers who are ready to collaborate!

Once you’re a bit more settled, we would expect that you jump into the following projects:
Work with the Senior Product Marketer on GTM product marketing campaigns that generate market demand for Float
Seek new lead growth opportunities across marketing, product, and sales, and champion commercial opportunities into team decision making
Collaborate with the product team and Senior Product Marketer to increase new trial user activations
