Periscope Data is hiring a

Community and Content Manager

San Francisco, United States


Our Marketing team’s mission is to develop the Periscope Data brand and build awareness while simultaneously increasing leads and interest in our product. As the Editorial Lead you will be responsible for an area of marketing that is critical to helping us achieve our mission. You will be the owner of our blog and it’s primary editor. You’ll be responsible for working with our team of data scientists and engineers to craft posts that people love and publish them on a regular schedule. You will also help create an email newsletter and online community we want to be revered go-to resources for data teams everywhere. Finally, you’ll be our marketing copy editor and own posting on our social channels (Twitter/Facebook/LinkedIn, etc.). We need someone who is good with words and can help us build consistency with our brand voice.


Periscope’s VP of Marketing has a data-driven background that matches your experience and knowledge. He has led successful advertising, demand, and marketing operations teams at Salesforce, Zendesk and most recently Slack. This is a great opportunity to join an experienced B2B marketing team.

Being a data driven company, we use our own product to evaluate the ROI of our campaigns. We also work very closely with our Analytics and Business Engineering teams. The opportunity to join the “founding” marketing team doesn’t present itself often -- build the systems, the brand and the voice from the ground up.

Here’s what your first 90 days at Periscope Data will look like:


Within your first week...

  • Spend time with our marketing team and review all of our work to date to get an idea of our brand voice. We’ll also want you to dive in and immediately begin editing our blog posts.

By Day 30...

  • You’ll be confidently managing and editing the blog and making sure we’re regularly posting every week.
  • You’ve written a first draft of Periscope Data’s brand voice guidelines and you’re evangelizing it and training others how to use it.
  • You’re editing marketing content for our website, sales materials, and anywhere else we need help.

Day 60...

  • You’re manning our social channels, posting regularly, building relationships with our audience there, and building them into distribution channels for the content we produce.
  • You launch our email newsletter targeted at SQL experts, Data Scientists, and members of Data Teams everywhere.

Day 90...

  • Our email newsletter is sent weekly at a regular cadence and subscriptions are climbing steadily.
  • You begin to build a plan for our online community - what software we’ll use, what form it will take, etc..


  • You love writing about technical topics and working with technical teams to produce content.
  • You don’t just think about producing content, but how to get it in front of the right audiences. This line of thinking helps inform your writing process.
  • You are data driven and love tracking stats that help inform the work you do in the future.
  • You have experience managing a content team and working with teams outside of your own to produce content.


  • We're a small, venture-funded team with hundreds of customers working out of a warehouse in the Dogpatch.
  • We're a kind, curious, tight-knit bunch. We eat together, toast our shared accomplishments together, and often spend holidays and ski trips together.
  • We are on-boarding rapidly! The team grew from 20 to 69 in 2016, and will grow to 140 and beyond in 2017.
  • We believe strongly in a data-driven approach to all that we do. We're constantly measuring and optimizing everything about the business.
