Clarity, a Series A cleantech startup, is looking for a seasoned Senior Customer & Channel Marketing Manager to help advance our mission of bringing clean air to the world. This person will work closely with our Customer Success and Sales teams to identify champions of our air quality monitoring solution, build an international community around the use of our products, and help both Direct and Channel customers get the most value out of our solution — increasing lifetime value and driving customer satisfaction.
Clarity is a globally distributed organization with headquarters in Berkeley, CA, empowering the world to reduce air pollution with air quality Sensing-as-a-Service. We are a diverse group of engineers, scientists, and makers motivated by doing something good in the world.
We make it possible for anyone to easily and cost-effectively measure, understand, and take action on air pollution. Our Sensing-as-a-Service solution is currently deployed in over 60 countries and is changing how cities and communities measure and understand their air quality. We envision a world where novel sensing technology, IoT, and cloud computing simplify air quality measurement, enabling cities and industrial facilities to scale up the number of monitoring sites and take data-driven action.
With Clarity, customers can cost-effectively deploy a dense network of low-cost air quality sensors spread over a geographic area. This approach provides hyper-local air quality data, which is relayed into the cloud and then flows into our web-based Clarity Dashboard to drive analysis and decisions.
Clarity’s highly accurate air quality sensing networks are deployed in more than 60 countries around the world, with sales occurring through both Direct and Channel sales.
