This role requires the ability to create and maintain API connections with various lead sources and Marketo.

This includes segmenting marketing lists and creating all the automated marketing campaigns around those lists.

  • Marketing Operations: You will own our marketing tech stack. You will come up with recommendations to make our tech stack more efficient. Data tracking and integrity is also your responsibility. You will have to work with the VP of Marketing, the Director of Content Marketing, and the Director of Sales Operations to ensure that all data tracking and management is working properly.
