About the role

About Ashby

We’re building the next generation of enterprise software and we’re starting with a suite of products that help talent leaders, recruiters, and hiring managers run their hiring process significantly better (we haven’t shared much publicly about what we’re building yet, but we’ll be more specific once we meet).

We are well funded and backed by great investors, including Y Combinator, Elad Gil and Lachy Groom.

We have not launched publicly yet, but we're already working with amazing companies, such as Opendoor, Plaid, Airtable, Snyk, Benchling and SalesLoft (and many others which we cannot name yet).

We have a clear buyer persona and target market. Our current sales process allows us to land & expand. We've only taken the first step towards a much larger opportunity. In short, it's the perfect time to join 🚀

About this Role

As our first marketing hire you will lead our public launch and help build a marketing function from scratch. Initially you will help with testimonials, content marketing, community/events, expanding partnerships, etc.

Our emphasis is less on previous experience and more on your raw ability to excel in the areas listed below and your appetite for continuous growth & improvement.

We have built an excellent product & engineering machine and we now want to do the same on the go-to-market side.

You could be a great fit if

  • 🤓You love becoming a product and domain expert. You want to build a brand (and pipeline) by teaching our prospects something at every touchpoint.

  • ⚡️You move fast. You constantly find areas of improvement. You leverage tools/technology to accomplish a lot with a small team.

  • 📝You have excellent writing skills (you'll be shaping the voice of the Ashby brand).

  • 👨‍👩‍👧‍👧You're excited to build and nurture a community around our ideal customer profile.

  • 👷‍♀️You love building - there are a lot of initiatives you'll help take from 0 to 1.

  • 📊 + 💡You are analytical and creative. You generate a lot of new ideas and are able to prioritize them intelligently.

Bonus

  • 👨‍👨‍👧‍👧You have experience hiring & leading a marketing team.

  • 🛰You have experience marketing complex products.

Our Philosophy

Here are a few key points (relevant to the go-to-market side) that should give you an idea of what it is like to work with us:

  • We spend a lot of time building best-in-class products since we believe a highly differentiated product is a lot easier to market & sell.

  • We want to offer deep expertise whenever we interact with prospects and customers.

  • We strongly believe that small teams with very talented people (and the right work environment) deliver much better performance than teams with large headcount. We hire and compensate accordingly.

We value a strong sense of ownership, principled thinking over experience, and thoughtful communication (we put a lot of effort into using the right communication channels) - we’ll get into these and other values during the hiring process.

Benefits

  • You’ll get the time to do things the right way; we put a lot of emphasis on high quality work and avoid quick hacks as much as possible

  • You get to sell a product that our prospects & customers are truly excited about

  • Competitive compensation

  • Top notch health insurance for you and your dependents with all premiums covered by us

  • 401(k) matching if you're in the US
