Job type: Full-time

Category: Marketing / Sales



As a member of our small and mighty team, the Demand Generation Marketing Lead will design, develop, and manage multi-channel co-marketing and demand generation campaigns that drive leads for our self-serve and sales-assisted funnels. You’ll collaborate with cross-functional teams to broaden our audience, educate small businesses about the power of customer-centric service, inform prospects to keep Help Scout top-of-mind, and encourage fans to demonstrate interest in our products. Ultimately, your strategies and tactics will support our mission to empower customer-centric businesses with tools that serve people in the most human, helpful way.


Watch this 2-minute video from Justine, the hiring manager (and our CMO!) to hear more about what you can expect.

About the role

Thanks to our blog and HelpU education platform, we’ve become a go-to resource among folks that identify as support professionals. Part of your job will be helping us identify creative ways to engage new audiences and create demand for Help Scout’s products. 

You’ll own end-to-end strategy and execution for creative marketing campaigns across various channels (webinars, ebooks/downloads, events, videos, social media, and more), working with colleagues in sales, support, design, content, email, growth, and SEO/PPC. Together you’ll research target audiences, plan and test messaging strategy, and follow-through on campaign implementation, ensuring customer-facing teams are enabled to follow-up on inbound leads. 

We have a number of integrated and strategic partners at Help Scout. You'll build relationships with new and existing partners to identify co-marketing opportunities that reflect the best of both brands.

You’ll help us broaden our audience by driving self-service and sales-assisted leads into various marketing funnels in order to meet forecasted pipeline goals for subscribers, leads, MQLs, SQLs, SOPs, and trials. 

You’ll draft compelling content for landing pages, social assets, and other deliverables as necessary to support the execution of your campaigns, manage the campaign launch calendar and launch plans for each campaign, make improvements based on customer feedback, track and report on performance metrics, develop creative insights, and optimize conversion rates. 

Your programs are built on a foundation of compelling customer-centric content. They communicate value, reflect our brand promise, and engage customers at every step along their journey. 

A typical week

Brainstorming with teammates across the company to understand product use cases, learn industry trends, and identify campaign themes—and then you take it one step further by scheduling a few customer calls to validate (or challenge) what you’ve learned. 

Building out a new project plan in Asana (our project management tool), updating calendars, deadlines, and tasks across in-progress campaigns, and checking in with teammates to ensure everyone is set up for success and timely delivery. 

Working with the team to develop a scalable webinar program and identify additional opportunities to leverage on-demand webinar playback for lead generation.

Mapping out the campaign brief, writing/editing copy, and working with our design and growth teams to set up a campaign landing page.

Researching and evaluating event opportunities, lining up our sales team or internal speakers to attend, and developing appropriate lead capture tactics.

Writing, scheduling, and responding to posts on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and LinkedIn.

Dipping into the support queue to read, evaluate, and respond to co-marketing and partnership inquiries. 

Researching the latest strategies, tools, and tactics to support your goals.

About you

You have experience building and executing multi-channel campaign strategies across a variety of mediums, channels, and lifecycle stages, along with solid knowledge of demand generation funnels and common tactics used at each stage within the funnel. 

You are a highly organized and detail-oriented project manager that can manage multiple projects and timelines simultaneously. 

You thrive in environments where you can be creative, use critical thinking, and be proactive with new ideas. You push yourself to learn new tools, strategies and techniques, because let's be honest, you love this stuff!

You are an exceptional writer capable of creating copy appropriate for multiple channels and lifecycle stages, grasping complex ideas and explaining them in plain language. You work hard to make every word matter, and ensure your social media copy and other public-facing content is engaging and error-free. 

You have worked in B2B SaaS and enjoy the challenges of attracting people and getting them to consider our product. Bonus points for experience with SMB markets or in companies with a hybrid self-service/sales assisted business model. 

You are empathetic and thoughtful, always putting yourself in the customer’s shoes. You know that the most relevant messages start with understanding how people feel. You have a deep sense of empathy for your customers, which includes internal and external partners and stakeholders. That’s really what drives you to do excellent work.

You have a high bar of excellence and leave no stone unturned when it comes to quality assurance. Shipping a campaign with a broken link will temporarily ruin your day (but you’ll quickly recover and learn from the mistake).

You believe remote teams are the future of work, or are at least excited about the idea. You have experience working with remote teams or can adjust your work and time-management style to be remote-friendly.

You can work almost anywhere in the world as long as you have 3+ hours of overlap time with US Pacific(GMT-8) working hours or are willing to time shift to accommodate the preferred timezone.

Who you'll work with

Justine Jordan, CMO—A marketer who dislikes most marketing, Justine is on a mission to create customer-first interactions that drive loyalty, community, and evangelism. You’ll report to Justine, working closely with her on brand messaging, and learning from her rich background in co-marketing and content creation.

Eli Overbey, Head of Growth—Eli has played a key role in building the systems and processes that helps our sales, marketing, and support teams stay aligned. You’ll work with him to understand our funnels, optimize our site for conversion, and report on your campaigns.

The Sales Team—The Help Scout sales team inverts the way sales is typically done. They’re passionate about their craft, which entails putting the customer ahead of the sale.

The Customers Team—The Help Scout Customers Team delivers friendly, helpful support via email, chat, and social channels while working alongside our sales, finance, business development, and marketing functions.

…plus teammates in Product, Design, Marketing, and more! 

A note about our application process

    You probably haven’t run into a company like Olark before. We are a small, fully distributed team working to make business more human. Since 2009, we’ve been in the live chat business, helping tens of thousands of customers support their customers with our chatbox. 

    We believe that customer service is essential to all types of businesses including our own business - which is reflected in our All Hands Support model. Our passion and dedication to our customers is a direct result of us putting our people first. 

    This is a unique point in our company history. As we move into our tenth year of business, we are seeking a highly motivated and experienced Partner Channel Marketing Manager to play a critical role in generating small business demand, sales leads, and revenue for Olark products. 

    Over the past 10 years, we’ve built a strong base of diverse small business customers in 170 countries. Currently, most of our customers buy direct via Olark.com. Looking ahead to the next 10 years, we believe that a focused channel partnership program will help us grow faster by reaching micro-segments of small businesses that don’t yet know or use live chat.

    If you are excited by the challenge of developing a new partnership program and playing an instrumental role in Olark’s next phase of growth — reaching thousands more small businesses — we’d love to talk to you.

    This is a fully remote role and can be based anywhere in the United States or Canada. 


    Your Primary Responsibilities: 

    Create a channel partnership program through thoughtful and creative financial incentives and non-financial marketing resources that would fit the needs of each profile of partner.

    Build a go-to-market plan for channel partners in the small business segment: This work would include identifying partner profiles, developing a target list of prospective partners, executing marketing tactics to recruit and foster partners, and generate small business demand, leads, and revenue for Olark.

    Help partners succeed through Olark-run marketing programs, like webinars and events, that enable them to generate qualified leads, sales, and revenue for Olark.

    Develop collateral, playbooks and toolkits, in close collaboration with our content marketing manager, to empower partners.

    Analyze the effectiveness of partner programs to determine ROI and prioritize resources.

    Work with Olarkers across marketing, product management, engineering, and customer service to continually improve what we offer partners.


    You: 

    Strategic thinker who can focus on details: You are able to zoom out to develop the right plans and zoom in to execute your plans well.  

    Empathetic: You realize listening is just as important as speaking your mind. Externally, you are able to listen and respond to the needs of our partners. Internally, you assume good faith your teammates when there is conflict and are curious about understanding their perspectives.  

    Excellent organizational and project management skills: You have the ability to manage a wide range of topics and projects at one time.

    Strong analytical and quantitative capability: You have the skills to determine program effectiveness, ROI and impact. 

    Self-directed, but also open to collaboration: You are happy to work independently, but know when to ask for help. You know how to give, and receive, direct feedback. You are a team player, comfortable both contributing to and leading projects. You see ambiguity as an opportunity to experiment. 

    Excellent communicator: You are able to clearly communicate your thoughts, especially in writing. You know when a conversation should be over Slack, email, or Zoom. 

    Comfortable or open to working remotely: Our entire team is distributed and you’ll communicate via remote tools: email, chat, video conferencing, etc. 

    Willing to travel in the US: You are excited to occasionally meet partners face-to-face, attend events, and present at conferences and tradeshows as needed. 


    You will help us solve key Marketing challenges:

    Develop and run a profitable partner channel program to reach micro-segments SMBs who do not currently use Live Chat.

    Generate small business demand, sales leads, and revenue for Olark by building strong relationships with a focused set of partners, and then providing them with the necessary incentives, tactics, resources and individualized support.

    In time, identify opportunities to scale the focused program to reach more partners and small businesses.


    You can expect a lot from us:

    First off, make sure to read about our team culture at olark.com/jobs, and our values at olark.com/values. Beyond what you see there, as a member of the Marketing team you can expect:

    A great remote culture and team: Even though we’re remote, our team makes the effort to connect to one another and we provide in person opportunities to further enhance that bond. We genuinely like each other.  

    Weekly required Marketing meetings, 1-on-1 manager meetings, and team wide sync.

    A life outside of work: Olarkers generally work 40 hour weeks. Work is a marathon, not a sprint. We are building a company for the long haul.
