Opt out software that removes your private info from the internet
We are seeking an entrepreneurial VP of Marketing with a track record of success scaling a fast growing software startup, preferably in the cyber security industry.
While Optery sells to consumers directly, the VP of Marketing role is primarily focused on Optery for Business which sells personal data removal software subscriptions to enterprises covering their employees and executives, and their own customers (https://www.optery.com/business/).
You will be responsible for developing and leading demand generation and marketing strategies and programs that will be executed by your team. You will hire, train and manage employees, contractors, and agencies executing marketing efforts across several fronts that you are responsible for.
We are looking for an expert marketing communicator that is skilled in developing systems and processes that create personalized relationships and conversations with customers across all user interactions. You should have deep experience crafting critical communications with the press, analysts and enterprise customers.
You will work closely with Optery’s CEO and other executives to develop and implement marketing strategies and tactics that drive revenue and align with the company's overall goals and objectives.
The right candidate will be equally comfortable diving into the weeds and executing initiatives themselves, as well as hiring and managing an extended team of team members, agencies, contractors, and specialists focused on customer experiences and demand generation. This is a hands-on VP of Marketing role that requires a strong background both strategically and tactically.
You will collaborate closely with cross-functional teams, including sales, product management, account management and executive leadership, to align marketing efforts with business objectives and drive measurable results.
The ideal person will be passionate about cyber security and consumer data privacy, and will have significant depth to draw on and leverage in at least three of the following areas:
While Optery is a fully-remote global team, this is a U.S.-based position and you will be required to work regular U.S. business hours, i.e. in the U.S. Eastern, Central, Mountain, and/or Pacific time zones.
Optery values diversity and is an equal opportunity employer. Optery does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy and gender identity), national origin, political affiliation, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, genetic information, age, membership in an employee organization, retaliation, parental status, military service, or other non-merit factor.
