Simon Data was founded in 2015 by a team of successful serial entrepreneurs. We're a data-first marketing platform startup, and we approach our work seriously; we tackle problems in a scrappy and disruptive fashion, yet we build for scale to support our clients at big data volume.
We are the first and only enterprise customer data platform with a fully-integrated marketing cloud. Moving beyond the limitations of both categories, Simon's platform empowers businesses to leverage enterprise-scale big data and machine learning to power customer communications in any channel. Simon's unique approach allows brands to develop incredible personalization capabilities without needing to build and maintain massive bespoke data infrastructure.
Our culture is rooted in organizational transparency, empowering individuals, and an attitude of getting things done. If you want to be a valuable contributor on a team that cultivates these core values we would love to hear from you.
Simon Data is seeking a Director of Marketing to lead all marketing activity for the business - including lead generation, branding, PR, thought leadership, and product marketing. This is a critical hire, and the role will report directly to the co-founders; beyond the core tactical elements of the job, the ideal candidate is expected to contribute strategically to the overall direction of the company's growth.
Currently well-staffed on the sales side, Simon Data has grown quickly, and is looking for a marketing leader who can leverage in-market traction to both drive effective storytelling and fuel growth via inbound leads.
