A BIT ABOUT US
Lever was founded eight years ago to tackle the most strategic challenge that companies face: how to recruit and hire top talent. We’re building the next generation of hiring software that companies like Netflix, Atlassian, KPMG, and McGraw-Hill Education rely on to grow their teams. We've rethought the talent acquisition paradigm and are the innovation leaders in our space and looking for the right people to join us as we scale.
We’re extraordinarily proud of the company we’ve built so far (not to mention humbled to be recognized as the #1 place to work in San Francisco, as well as a top workplace in the entire United States). Our people are Lever’s biggest competitive advantage and we’ll continue investing in our “Leveroos” and people-first culture.
We are looking for a hands-on experienced and enthusiastic global Customer Marketing Manager. This manager will help execute our global customer lifecycle marketing program. This role will supervise the development, follow-through, and maintenance of marketing campaigns from onboarding, engaging, renewals, and expansion.
The ideal candidate has significant expertise in developing and optimizing lifecycle marketing programs from purchase through cancellation activities in a B2B environment. They will have a proven track record of using marketing results, customer insights, and analytics to inform and scale a successful global marketing program.
In this role, the Customer Marketing Manager will conceptualize, develop, own, and execute personalized and localized programs for Lever’s paid customer base. You will partner with the customer success, product marketing, partner marketing, demand gen, finance, and the ops and analytics teams to translate business strategy and requirements into scaled customer marketing campaigns.
