  • Keep up with current industry trends and topics to ensure effective communications.

  • Support other marketing team needs as they arise, such as conference strategy & execution and supporting PR and media requests.

Preferred Qualifications

  • Experience in SaaS marketing.

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.

  • An eye for both newsworthy angles and commercially targeted content.
