Product Marketing Manager
Posted 1 month ago
Timescale is looking for a Product Marketing Manager to help us take our category-defining time-series database and other new products to market. A Product Marketing Manager defines the story behind a product, helping us crisply define the audience for our product, craft the proper positioning and messaging for the product to meet the audience’s needs, and drive the launch and continued success of the product in-market.
Product Marketing is a highly cross-functional role at Timescale, partnering across Engineering, Product Management, Customer Care, and the rest of the marketing team. Product Marketing works across the entire product lifecycle, helping shape the scope and features of the product, driving launch and go-to-market strategy/execution, and working with our Growth and Developer Advocacy teams to grow adoption post-launch. At Timescale, it is particularly important for Product Marketing to have a deep understanding of both the developer and open source market. Our strategic and tactical decisions emanate from our love of developers and respect for the transformative effect of open source on our entire industry.
This is an exciting opportunity to join an early-stage company with a clear set of products on the horizon. We need you to help us talk about it the right way, land it with our customer base, and iterate on future versions. If you have experience launching products at a startup and want to take the next step in your career, this is the role for you.
This role is remote, but English language proficiency is a requirement.
