“With WorkBoard, we're goal aligned in real-time and achieving our best every day.”

Rani Hublou, CMO, 8x8

Director of Product Marketing

WorkBoard created an entirely new solution category to address line of business leaders’ most pressing problem: driving smart, fast growth. Large enterprises like Cisco, Reliance Industries, Samsung, Deutshce Telekom, GE, Transamerica, Cision, and fast-growth companies like Go1, Influitive, Malwarebytes and others use WorkBoard’s Strategy & Results platform to align, measure and drive their strategic priorities and fuel faster growth.

THE OPPORTUNITY
As director of product marketing, you’ll be a key player in driving category leadership and conveying our insights to build on that leadership. You’ll own positioning and driving preference for our platform by delivering stellar materials and insights to our sales, customer success and dev teams and to external stakeholders in the analyst, media and influencer communities.

You’ll gain deep insights by engaging with customers directly to help them understand the value of the platform and learning directly from them how we can provide the highest value. You’ll be an expert to and enable the sales team to be growth advisors to customers and most incredibly effective at communicating value. Just as importantly, you’ll guide our customer success team to be long-term growth coaches to customers, increasing the business results they realize from the platform over time.

Your work will also include collaborating with the leadership team to identify new market and product opportunities for the platform, prioritize industry segment investments and develop global expansion plans.

THE TEAM
You’ll join one of the smartest go-to-market leadership teams ever assembled to build and amplify product marketing. We are remarkably engaged with our customers, so you’ll have immediate access to their insights and voices. Everyone on the team is striving to improve the value and quality of experience we provide customers by delivering at our best and being voracious learners. We are an incredibly supportive team, with powerhouse creative and production team members who quickly bring marketing ideas to life.

We are excited about a lot of things—what “best” looks like for our customers, what “breakthrough” looks like in product—and we share these passions across the company and with our customers. We host hackathons with customers, which they affectionately named WoBoCon!
