About the role

Civis is hiring a Head of Product Marketing to oversee Civis’s product positioning, messaging, and go-to-market execution in partnership with our sales teams. We have product-market fit right now, but we need an excellent product marketing leader to define our product story and work hand in hand with our business teams to take it to market online. 

We’ll expect this person to master the fundamentals (website, sales documentation, case studies) but also to bring creative plans for how we can differentiate our product story in our customer conversations, social media, and in the press. At each step we’ll expect this person to manage their performance with well defined metrics against our sales and marketing goals. 

Responsibilities:

  • Product positioning: Define and position our two product lines—the Civis platform and our survey applications—broadly and in our target sectors to ensure the messaging and positioning of our products create competitive advantages and drive demand and adoption of our products. 
  • Content: Content is King & Queen in quarantine, so we’ll expect this person to write and co-write interesting, compelling content. 
    • Sales: Identify, develop and manage the creation of our online and offline sales and marketing assets (sheets, website, videos, or presentations) that close deals. 
    • User stories: Uncover and write up the value-adding customer stories that we can evangelize through our target sectors to improve current customer experience and gain new customers that share those problems. 
  • Go-to-market partner: Partner with the business teams on demand-generation, outbound, and earned media go-to-market campaigns across our four target sectors (commercial, nonprofit, public sector, political).  
  • Competitive research: Equip all customer-facing and product roles with competitive intelligence that strengthens their ability to deepen product-market fit. 
  • Public sector user developer community: Partner with our product team to foster a user developer (data science and engineering) community among our hundreds of users in the government and nonprofit space.  
  • Be the internal go-to expert: Be the knowledge resource on our buyers and users to serve as the internal expert on where we do and don’t have market opportunity 

Required Qualifications

  • 7+ years of product marketing experience for B2B/SaaS products
  • Experience positioning products with multiple stakeholders across different industries
  • Self-starter who thrives in a fast-paced start-up environment
  • Ability to translate technical concepts into understandable content and stories
  • Proven track record of collaboration across product, marketing, and sales teams 

Preferred Qualifications

  • Experience working in the consumer, nonprofit/advocacy, or government sectors
  • Formal degree or self-taught engineering or data science skills
  • Experience building a product marketing function from the ground up
  • Familiarity with the business intelligence/analytics/data science landscape

An Insider's view of Civis Analytics

What's something quirky about your company?

One of my favorite parts about Civis is the culture of learning—talking about academic papers is encouraged as well as sharing weird facts about things people are interested in. I also love the people at Civis because they genuinely care about each other and also serving the wider world.
