With the upcoming release of Descript 2.0, a cross-platform rewrite of our desktop app with support for both audio and video editing, we're looking to hire a Marketing manager. You'll be our first dedicated product evangelist, building relationships with audio and video creator communities, as well as businesses that are (or could be) customers.
- Find and build relationships with influential creators - vloggers, podcasters, etc.
- Represent Descript at conferences
- Maintain our social media presence
- Customer training (calls, video conferences, etc.)
- Content creation
- Create training videos
- Write case studies
- Write app documentation
- Oversee blog content marketing strategy
We’ll be evaluating applicants based on the following five criteria:
Extroversion & affability
We’re not looking for someone who “can” put themselves out there and talk to people, but someone who lives for it. We’ll be looking for examples of this in your history, e.g.
- Extensive cold calling / emailing
- Going to conferences and making friends
Social Media Prowess
You should personally be an active user of Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube, etc.
You should understand the world of vlogging - you should have favorite vloggers, etc. Ideally, you have a vlog yourself. You would love to go to Vidcon even if it wasn’t for your job.
Not merely an order-taker - has a demonstrated ability to figure out for him/herself what’s strategically important to the business, prioritize/simplify, and set measurable goals.
Subject matter expertise
You have a deep understanding of the workflow of video producers. You’re a competent user of editing tools.
You write well and communicate clearly. We should be able to find videos on YouTube that leave no doubt as to your technical and communication skills.
Please attach a cover letter that speaks directly to your experience with the above five requirements. Applications without a cover letter will be rejected without being read.
