  • Good understanding of marketing fundamentals to drive growth (branding, positioning, messaging, segmentation, digital channels, conversion funnels)
  • Experience executing multi-channel marketing campaigns across digital and offline channels (advertising, web, social, influencer marketing, email, in-product, etc.)

  • 3+ years of consumer marketing experience, preferably in software/ app
  • High energy & positive mindset; willingness to roll up sleeves & get stuff done
  • Excellent program management skills
  • BA/BS or equivalent experience required


  • Highly competitive salaries
  • Ample paid time off as needed – we’re about getting things done, not face time

  • Great location: walking distance to Caltrain and downtown Mountain View
  • A fun, high-caliber team that trusts you and gives you the freedom to be brilliant
