Hardest part(s) of the job? 

This is a new market, we are establishing a new category. We have a lot of interest in the market right now and are the leader, but our competitors/the market is changing on a daily basis. We need someone who can come in and drive our growth through exceptional storytelling and branding. This is a dynamic market and we want to keep our lead.

  • Experience marketing an HR (SaaS) technology is a must.
  • Must have created content, with strong product marketing roots. 
  • Must have experience creating exceptional brands, telling compelling stories that stand out and experience positioning companies in the marketplace.
  • Prefer start up experience. If they do not have this, we will be looking closely at: 
    • Is their expectation that they will have a big team around them, with a lot of resources? 
    • Do they know how to create buzz when you don’t have a household name?
  • Must have led a team of at least 4 people, with experience hiring (not just inheriting).

  • Intangibles: Must have the ability to be both strategic, and tactical. This is a high execution position, but this person will also be setting strategy and creating the playbook.
