Director of Marketing

Director of Marketing

imgix is looking for an experienced marketing professional to help us define and execute our strategy for increasing our brand awareness and growing our customer base. The ideal candidate would be capable and willing to dive headfirst into our current marketing efforts, grow them, and shape them into a cohesive strategy that we can build a team around. 

Most of our growth strategy to date has been focused towards generating new small to mid-size business leads. As we continue to evolve our product line, we plan to move up market, which will involve new strategies and a deeper interaction between marketing and sales. The person functioning in this role would be driving these ambitions forward.

What we are looking for

  • Direct experience in (or comparable relevant experience paired with an interest in) marketing and growing SaaS business models. 
  • A take-charge attitude, whether it means performing boots-on-the-ground tasks oneself or securing the resources necessary to get things done faster.
  • A high attention to detail and a healthy respect for design. We pride ourselves on our written content, our design standards, and the public persona we have built. We expect any candidate for this role to feel similarly.
  • A metrics-driven approach to validating strategies and campaigns.
  • An instinct towards delegating, whether it be through building out a team or outsourcing to capable third-parties.
  • Developer marketing skills, including developer relations strategy, would be ideal but not required.

About the role

  • This role reports directly to the CEO and operates with input from the entire executive team.
  • Key areas of focus will include marketing, advertising, developer relations, and events.
  • Marketing and growth projects will often leverage resources from the Design, Engineering and Customer Success teams. In these cases, it will be the responsibility of the Director of Marketing to abide by the established processes for scheduling and delivering work defined by those teams.
  • The quantity of sales accepted leads will ultimately be the measurement by which this role is evaluated.
  • The technologies we use for the purposes of marketing and growth include (but are not limited to) Salesforce, Hubspot, Google Analytics, Dropbox Paper, and Google Sheets. Additionally, we use products such as Google Ads, Twitter Ads, and LinkedIn Ads to advertise our products. Segment ties all of these things together.
