About the role

As our founding marketing lead, you will pioneer the marketing motion, shape our culture, and super charge our growth. You will play at the intersection of content marketing and growth marketing, driving awareness and generating inbound leads for the sales team. You’ll double down on what is currently working (content marketing) while experimenting with new growth levers.

Why You Should Join

  • You love building from the ground up and having ownership.
  • You are looking for a learning experience and have a growth mindset.
  • You are ready to build a marketing motion for a new product category.

Validate new hypotheses

  • We have several hypotheses we’d like to validate. You would execute on these independently to prove or disprove new channels.

    • Linkedin and Twitter
    • Paid acquisition
    • Webinars
    • In-person events
    • Influencers
    • And more.

Your KPI would be to drive X% of sign ups month-over-month.


  • 4-8 years of experience in a growth or acquisition marketing role.
  • Excellent technical written communication skills.
  • Experience marketing to developers & the developer tooling space.
  • SEO experience.

Recall is the universal API for meeting bots. Our unified API captures data from meeting platforms like Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and Google Meet. We support over 200 companies today, and process millions of hours of meeting data every year. We provide a simple API to a problem that typically takes our customers more than a year to build in house, and a team of 5 to maintain forever.

We’re at an inflection point in our growth. In a market where everyone is mining for gold, we’re selling shovels. We grew 1300% last year to over $XM ARR, and serve category leaders such as Calendly,, Grain, and more. Our NRR is 170%.
