    About Us

    At Close, we're building the sales communication and collaboration platform of the future. With our roots as the very first sales CRM to include built-in calling, we're leading the industry in sales automation—helping companies to close more deals, faster than ever. Since our founding in 2013, we've grown to become a fully profitable, 100% globally distributed team of 34 high-performing, happy people that are dedicated to building a product our customers love.

    We are seeking a Product Marketing Manager that will be instrumental in defining our product and market positioning and will take ownership of growing our customer base and platform adoption through a wide range of marketing efforts. 

    This position requires a highly motivated individual with previous experience leading product marketing and GTM strategy, and who is comfortable in a fast-moving  environment. The successful candidate will be customer-oriented, self-motivated and results-driven.


    About You

    You have a knack for understanding people. You ask a lot of questions. You’re decisive.

    As Product Marketing Manager at Close, your primary job is to understand our customer— what motivates them, what makes their job difficult, and what simply delights them. You will take these constant and ongoing learnings and deftly apply them to the way we position our brand and product to the world. After all, product marketing is at its very core, “people marketing”. 

    Your previous experience creating successful go-to-market plans (from high-level strategy down to tactical execution) will enable you to oversee the rollout of all new products and feature updates.  

    Sometimes you’ll be looking at our product marketing from a high level view—say, determining our key objectives for the quarter or the year. Other days, you may be down in the weeds yourself, writing landing page copy or working with others on the marketing team to run A/B conversion tests on site. You’re comfortable—and happy—doing both.

    What you don’t know, you’ll openly admit, but then you’ll get to work figuring it out (asking others for help and/or digging deep on your own). Your self-motivation and a relentless drive to learn/do more are appreciated by all. You pride yourself on being a “clever thinker”.  You’re comfortable talking with and working alongside our product, sales, development, and customer success teams. You understand your critical part in the overall machine, graciously accepting thoughts and feedback from others while offering your own expertise where you can. You pride yourself on being “overly communicative” -- keeping everyone up to date with the latest product marketing wins, losses, and initiatives.

    You are comfortable working remotely as part of a small team, with a high level of autonomy. You can devise your own schedule and effectively manage your workload based on the biggest opportunities and company objectives.

    When you’re in the wrong or make a mistake you can admit it. You can articulate why it happened and how you’ve learned from the experience. 

    You are in a European or American timezone.

    Above all, you understand that your success—and our success—hinges on the satisfaction and loyalty of our customers. 


    About The Role

    You will be responsible for championing the features and benefits of the Close sales platform through our marketing messaging and market positioning. You’ll work closely with Danny (Director of Marketing) and our motley crew of marketing crushers.

  • AirDev (US only)
    Yesterday

    Thanks for your interest in this position - we’re excited to build great software together! Below is some basic info about us and the role, so you know what you’re getting into.

    About AirDev

    We founded AirDev to change how custom software is made. Our goals are to dramatically lower the technical and financial barriers to making technical products and to enable people without traditional coding skills to make a good living building those products.

    Co-founders Andrew and Vlad were some of the original Bubble users in 2013, and were amazed at the web platforms they could build without a technical background. They started AirDev in 2015 as the first Bubble agency, building apps for clients of all shapes and sizes (read our story here).

    We've grown significantly since and now help hundreds of clients all over the globe, from one-person startups to large enterprises, build high-quality software in a matter of weeks. 

    About the role and its responsibilities

    Product Owners act as the Head of Product/CTO for our clients, helping them think through their idea and turn it into concrete requirements that our developers and designers can execute on. Their primary task is to create a product that's as good as possible while ensuring that it's scoped to meet the client's timeline and budget. Their specific responsibilities include:

    • Discuss the project with the client and determine what functionality is needed

    • Help the client think through their different options, corner cases, and simplest ways to build something

    • Research answers to technical questions that involve API integrations or complex workflows

    • Put together detailed specifications and wireframes based on the project requirements as well as our standards

    • Work with the development and design teams to execute on the project, providing feedback and guidance as needed

    • Help the client iterate on the product based on data, development best practices, and customer feedback

    Qualities we look for

    • We value a mix of hard and soft skills, as well alignment to our core values in all of our people. Some specific qualities for this role include:

    • Excellent communication skills: Product Owners spend majority of their time interacting with clients, so they need to be very clear and structured in both verbal and written communication.

    • Product sense and commitment to simplicity: We see a large range of ideas and Product Owners should be able to quickly figure out the simplest way to turn those ideas into products, no matter what the industry or application.

    • Analytical skills: Designing software can be quite complex, so we look for strong conceptual and logical thinkers.

    • Software Experience:  Ideal candidates will have 2+ years of experience building software, using Bubble or code (as either a developer or Product Manager).

    • Time management and being task-oriented: We work with lots of clients at once and always stick to our deadlines, which requires diligence and constantly moving the ball forward.

    • Enjoy intellectual & creative challenges: Finding the right technical solution to a human need is both an art and a science, and those who enjoy solving complex problems tend to be best suited for this role.

    The Senior Product/Project Manager will join our PM team and lead a new mobile or web initiative we’re launching with one of our US-based clients. For this position, we’re seeking someone who’s successfully managed native mobile applications and also has e-commerce experience.  

    This position can be performed remotely or from our offices in Barcelona. Our working hours are 11am to 8pm BCN time. Only candidates who are based outside of the US will be considered for this role.  

    This role requires excellent writing and presentation skills in English.  Ideally, you are a native English speaker or have spent many years working with a US, UK, or Canada-based company.

    In this role, you will:

    • Align with the client  on key business goals and customer needs

    • Partner with executive-level stakeholders and the development team to deliver the roadmap

    • Own the evolution of the  product from inception through launch and iteration

    • Manage scope and trade-off discussions to achieve maximum business value within budget constraints

    • Define and communicate detailed user stories and lead the team’s grooming and sprint planning sessions

    • Collaborate with the UI/UX team to create engaging and dynamic user experiences

    • Use analytics, surveys, competitive analysis, and user interviews to identify areas of opportunity or improvement

    • Lead stakeholder meetings and communicate regularly with the Whitespectre executive team on progress and the client relationship

    • We work on fast iteration cycles and tight deadlines using an agile/scrum methodology. Depending on your skillset and project portfolio you may be focussed on the native mobile app product or a complex web application.

    We’re excited about candidates who are:

    • Excellent collaborators and communicators.  You consider the perspective and priorities of each stakeholder in advance when you communicate.  You’re clear, specific, and engaging. You’re skilled at building trust and group alignment, even in tricky situations

    • Excellent organizers; able to catch and juggle competing priorities while understanding the bigger project management picture to make yourself and your team successful.

    • Self-directed and efficient. You take pride in your ability to prioritize and get things done.

    • Intellectually curious and passionate about continuous improvement.

    • Seeking a long-term, growth opportunity.  While our work is fast-paced, we also work consistent hours and value stability. If you’re a ‘Digital Nomad’ and/or looking for something short-term, then we’re not the right fit for you.  

    Required Experience/Skills:

    • At least 3+ years in a Product  Management role, working daily with a development team

    • At least 1+ years of experience managing native mobile apps.  Ideally, you have experience with both IOS and Android.

    Why is it good to work with us?

    We know that big ideas and big results only happen when you have the right people, working together smartly - whether that’s across the room or across the globe. We make work fun and rewarding.

    Because we work on cool projects. Sure, we can list the latest set of technologies that we use, but that is a given. What's more interesting is how they are used - the design, the architecture, the approach to solving business problems. And we do that across multiple clients - each and everyone we're excited to work with.

    Because we believe in constant learning and exploring - whether that’s a new skill, a new role, or a new way of seeing. And because we've found that we learn the most when we take on new challenges as a team. We’re proud that people love working with us (and still have lives outside of work).
