About Text Blaze

Text Blaze (https://blaze.today) helps individuals and teams eliminate repetitive typing and low-value work. It is used by over 200,000 users (and growing fast) in a wide variety of roles from Customer Support, Sales, and Recruiting to Health Care and Education. Our customers range from individuals and small business owners to Fortune 100 companies.

Text Blaze starts as an intuitive freemium product; Users start saving hours in minutes. But it can also be very powerful, providing users with building blocks that allow them to build their own mini-productivity apps that are available to them anywhere they work.

Our users LOVE Text Blaze. We have a perfect 5-star rating in the Chrome Web Store. We constantly receive positive feedback from our users (it’s fun!). Our user growth is driven almost exclusively by word of mouth and referrals.

This is a unique opportunity to be part of a founding team of a fast-growing product and build and own the marketing function and team.

We are an energetic, empathetic and passionate remote team, bringing together the best talent from across the globe. We like working together and collaborating, but we do it asynchronously allowing everyone to work the way they work best.

About the role

We’re looking for an experienced product/growth marketer to own Text Blaze’s marketing and help users discover and unlock the full value of Text Blaze. You’ll define user segments and messaging and lead initiatives to acquire users and drive engagement.


  • Define and refine our segments, positioning and messaging based on a deep understanding of our users and how they use Text Blaze to drive productivity and quality.
  • Develop and prioritize marketing initiatives and plans to test them.
  • Lead the creation and deployment of content and collaterals across channels.
  • Run growth experiments (including A/B tests), analyze results, and decide on the next steps.
  • Hire and manage internal and external team members.
  • Go crazy - be creative and test new things.


  • 4+ years experience in product and/or growth marketing roles in product-led / freemium SaaS products.
  • Track record of driving significant improvements to core business metrics.
  • Experience in organic (SEO, content, and social), product and paid marketing.
  • Hustler - ability to independently drive results using creative and scrappy (at first) approaches.
  • Great communicators - able to communicate plans including prioritization, assumptions, results, and next steps.
  • Data and hypothesis-driven, including SQL knowledge.
  • Team player - high emotional intelligence and ability to mentor others.

About the interview

Our interview process is extremely straightforward and has proven to be a great predictor of success. We start with two interviews over Zoom:

  • Introductory interview with Dan (co-founder and CEO)
  • Interview with Scott (co-founder and CTO)

In these interviews, we'll tell you about Text Blaze and this role, get to know each other, and discuss your approach to marketing and how it applies to Text Blaze. Some understanding of Text Blaze will go a long way (it's free)

For candidates that do well on these two interviews, the last step is a take-home mini-project. It's a great opportunity for you to demonstrate your marketing skills in real life. The expected time investment is roughly 5 hours over a week or so (you let us know how long you need)

Why you should join Text Blaze

Text Blaze let's users create templates and insert them anywhere on the web using keyboard shortcuts. Snippets can include dynamic functionality like forms, formulas, real-time input and integrations with other apps.
