Job type: Full-time

Category: Marketing / Sales

Our mission is to build financial management technologies that enable the world’s most important companies to grow more quickly in a sustainable way that’s good for people, the planet, and business.

When companies have strong cash flow performance they can shift from short-term acrobatics to long-term growth and innovation. These are the teams that change the world by being freed to optimize for all of their stakeholders, including their employees, business partners, and environment.

The Opportunity

Cash flow is the toughest financial statement to understand but it’s fundamental to funding your own growth. We build the most intuitive and actionable tools for companies to optimize cash flow performance. Our platform analyzes billions of dollars of B2B transactions each year, users spend 70% of their workday in Tesorio, and we save finance teams thousands of hours. As a result, they can invest more confidently and anticipate their capital needs further in advance.

We’re growing quickly and working with the world’s best companies and the largest bank in the US. We recently raised a $10MM Series A led by Madrona Venture Group and are backed by top investors including First Round Capital, Y Combinator, and Floodgate. We’re also backed by tenured finance execs, including the former CFOs of Oracle and NetSuite

We’re now looking for a frontline marketing leader who can shape a narrative for a new category while providing air cover to sales. Imagine the following untapped resources at your fingertips:
+ A product with an NPS of 82 and over 50% DAU/MAU that beats the competition 9/10 times
+ Customers at highly recognizable companies eager to get the word out, and they call us when they switch jobs
+ Founders & CFOs of the top finance tools (NetSuite, Oracle, Adaptive Insights) as investors and resources for thought leadership (see example here)

As the ideal candidate, you have been the top direct report to the CMO at a company that feels like it came out of nowhere and you’re ready to run the playbook yourself. Think of companies like Drift, Superhuman, Airtable, Notion, or G2 Crowd that have crafted an aura around themselves. As the Director of Marketing, you will eagerly do the work yourself, but judiciously focus where you have the biggest impact. That means that you will manage an in-house team of 1-2, plus contractors when necessary, to give yourself leverage and bring in needed expertise. In short, people will be in shock when they see what we’re accomplishing and you tell them it’s just a 2-3 person marketing team. 

Our team is based in the San Francisco Bay Area, and we have a diverse, distributed workforce in five countries. We don’t believe that people need to sacrifice being close to their families and where they’d prefer to live in order to do their best work.

  • You have an experimental approach to rapidly test channels and ideas cost-effectively to identify where you need to double down without getting stuck in analysis mode
  • You are eager to collaborate with the CEO, Product, and Customer Success to turn our customer advisory board into an amplification platform
  • You run independently and seek the freedom of a blank slate reporting directly to the founder/CEOAt the same time, you build marketing cultures that collaborate well with sales, engineering, product, HR, and customer success
  • You’ve created such strong teams in the past that you have go-to people in your network who you can bring in to drive quick results because they love working with you

  • Customer-oriented approach with experience building integrated marketing programs
  • Strong copywriting, analytical and project management skills

  • Nice to have: Strong public speaker, and must be able to help the team get out there with crisp presentations

  • 4+ years of marketing management experience, and 8+ years in marketing 
  • Joined a company when it was just evolving away from founder-led evangelization and almost no marketing to help refine ICP, clarify the company category, and disseminate a narrative to the market
  • Experience figuring out the $1-20MM ARR scaling phase and carving out a new category of business applications
  • Demonstrate tenure and longevity in positions (3 years or more in roles a plus)
  • BS or BA highly preferred

    So we take the hard parts out, so our users can focus on the joy of making change happen!

    We’re also an award winning bunch (yes! You read that right - we’re one of Apple’s 2019 apps of the year in the ‘Storytelling Simplified’ category) with a distributed team spanning a wide range of locations – and we’re constantly growing.

    • We say “thank you”. Like, a lot. For big things, small things, old things and new things. Our #gratitude Slack channel is a constant reminder we’re an overwhelmingly grateful bunch.
    • Inspire – not just our users, but each other. On any given day, you’ll learn something new, hear a great story, feel empowered, get a hug, or a high five. It’s just how it goes.
