Jellyvision is hiring a Sr. Marketing Manager, Partner & Channel! 


Company Overview

We here at Jellyvision are the proud parents ofALEX®, an interactive employee communications platform. ALEX makes navigating tricky decisions—like choosing and using employee benefits or improving your financial wellness—easier, faster, and more helpful, not to mention entertaining. To help people understand their benefits, we design interactive experiences based on proven behavioral science principles, and we personalize our products to make them relevant to each individual user. The success of the ALEX platform has exceeded our wildest dreams which is why we need talented folks like you to help us help ALEX take over the world.

Your Impact

We’re looking for a talented marketing leader to run our partner & channel marketing program, supporting our channel sales team and partners with the messaging, tools, and campaigns they need to be successful. There is tremendous opportunity in this role, as you’ll be supporting a sales team of nearly 20 folks (a 300% increase from last year!). Additionally, you’ll be driving the strategy behind recruiting and onboarding new business partners and working with some of the country’s most influential brokerages, carrier partners and industry leaders.

Ideally, you’ll be partner-obsessed and have specific experience in a channel marketing role. Additionally, you need to be entrepreneurial and someone who thrives on working within a lean, collaborative, super fun team. Bonus points for existing knowledge of the insurance broker space and/or 5-10 years of experience.


In a nutshell, we’re looking for a person who is:

  • Dedicated to helping the sales team win. At Jellyvision, sales and marketing are BFFs. As the channel and partner marketing manager, you’ll make sure you’re in lock step with the channel sales team’s needs. You’ll work very closely with sales leadership, including the Director of Channel Sales, to make sure their team is on track to hit its goals by implementing and communicating a strong vision.
  • A powerhouse at prioritizing projects in order to develop and execute a channel marketing plan that makes the most short-term and long-term impact. Some projects are neatly prioritized, with whipped cream and cherries on top, and others are, well, a little messier. You’ll make sure the most impactful short-term initiatives are in the immediate view, and the long-term initiatives are still in the peripheral. It’ll also be important to be flexible, as these priorities can change to meet the demands of the market and sales team.
  • Great at developing and nurturing industry relationships. Because helping our channel partners crush their goals is so important to us, you’ll need to get on calls, go to conferences (about 5-10% travel involved) and really get to know the key people at our strategic partnerships. Equally important will be driving partnership programming to make our channel champions successful with ALEX.
  • In sync with the partner personas to create the most relevant marketing copy and collateral. Most often, you’ll be the first marketer to take a pass at copy for emails, decks, one-sheeters and other sales collateral, which means you’ll need to have a very clear understanding of pain points, seasonal relevancy, and calls-to-action. Additionally, when sales needs come up, it’ll be crucial to understand what the marketing team has that can be deployed or re-worked to accomplish the goal.
  • Comfortable balancing and coordinating with stakeholders. As we have stakeholders in many departments (creative, sales, product, project management, legal, etc.) you’ll need to make sure each stakeholder is heard, and then drive decisions.
  • An effective, concise communicator. There is a lot of information, and it’ll be up to you to make sure those aforementioned stakeholders are up to speed. You’ll need to know who owns a part of the project, and who just needs to be informed. And those communications need to be concise and jargon-free.
  • Biased towards action and doesn’t require much guidance. We’re moving pretty fast, and you’ll need to be comfortable choosing a point of view and a path forward with imperfect data. Our channel sales team has recently scaled up, and with growth naturally comes a (sometimes) steep learning curve.
  • A servant leader – a good listener, humble, helpful, enabling, team oriented. We’re a humble crew. Our product and our company mission is about helping people. We want helpers on our team!

Anything else?

Our credo is a simple one: be helpful. And we think we can be most helpful if our workforce is as diverse in thought, perspective, and culture as the people who use our products. We are looking to add amazing folks to our team who will bring diversity across many lines, including race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, age, marital status, disability, gender identity, sex, and country of origin.

Thanks for your interest in Jellyvision!

An Insider's view of Jellyvision

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Jellyvision is a place where I truly feel like leadership wants me to be healthy/happy. They really show me they want you to have a work/life balance. The company does everything they can to avoid unwarranted stress with unlimited PTO, flexible Working From Home, emails reminding me to take care of myself, and ways to get help from my teammates.


Implementation Manager

What projects are you most excited about?

I am most excited about the diversity, equity, and inclusion projects that I get to be a part of. We’re have emerging Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) that have engendered out of a toolkit our department created, streamlined trainings, and a diversity & inclusion strategic framework in place to name a few!


Recruiting & Onboarding Coordinator

How does the company support your career growth?

At Jellyvision, you don’t just hear from your manager when you’ve done something wrong. Jellyvision is big on positive feedback and celebrating success. In my experience, management has been great at helping me identify what my strengths are and pointing me in that direction as I progress here.


Senior Customer Development Representative

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Implementation is a team of ballers, constantly impressing me with new ideas. Our most recent ideas are new classes around Professional Development and a pilot approach to quickly implement customers. These ideas came from folks on the team. When my coworkers have these ideas, my job is to give them the support and resources to run with them.


VP of Implementation

What are Jellyvision Perks + Benefits

Jellyvision Benefits Overview

* Competitive pay, 401(k) with matching and benefits. We pay 100% of the cost of premiums for medical, dental, vision, disability and life insurance for our employees (as long as you qualify for our tobacco-free discount; if you’re a tobacco user, your medical premiums will be higher than $0). We also cover a really nice chunk of the cost of premiums for spouse/dependent medical, dental and vision insurance.

* Casual dress and a flexible schedule. Come in a sweatshirt, jeans, whatever, like everyone else here.
Creative work environment. We are lucky to work in a place that is full of intelligent, talented and innovative folks. Although most hours the place is deathly quiet (we're a focused bunch), this is punctuated with hilarious outbursts and general merriment, which makes a nice way to spend the day.

* Free food. Every week, we stock our kitchen with free healthy snack foods, and we have a catered lunch every other week to give people a reason to hang out and eat together.

* Easy transportation and lots of love for folks who bike to work. We’re really close to the North/Clybourn red line stop and the Halsted (#8) bus (right by the Apple Store and Mega Whole Foods too), and we have a transit FSA that allows you to dedicate pre-tax dollars to public transportation expenses. A number of our employees like to bike to work, so we also have bike storage, showers and lockers in the office. And for those without their own bike in the city, we offer free divvy memberships – complete with Jellyvision bike helmets you can borrow from the office.

* Did we mention our yoga and meditation classes? We bring a pro instructor right to the office. Fully subsidized by Jellyvision and fully optional, btw.

* Oh! And we have a massage chair. Not just any massage chair, my friend. It’s the Renew 2 Zero-Gravity Massage Chair by Brookstone®. Feeling a little stiff? Sit down. Relax. Feel better? Good. Okay, back to work.
