Marketing Operations Strategist
Would you describe yourself as a resourceful individual with experience measuring and optimizing a B2B sales and marketing funnel, who is able to understand how to reach buyers by pulling together strategies that link people, processes, marketing technology and data? Do you like solving complex business problems, ones that do not have a clear ‘right’ answer, but instead, require identifying key considerations, evaluating scenarios, and determining the best path forward to achieving a solution? Do you get excited by being a consultant and connector, both for internal and external stakeholders, helping to deliver high-quality solutions? Do you have experience creating ROI-driven marketing program strategies, combined with hands-on experience with marketing automation, CRM and other marketing technology tools and platforms? If you answered “yes” to these questions, then we may have the opportunity you’ve been looking for.
