Brand Marketing Manager

  • 2 Shotwell St, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA
  • Full-time

Company Description

Almanac’s mission is to democratize access to 21st century skills, insights, and tools so that no one is limited by knowledge in pursuit of their potential.

Through our own experiences, we’ve seen professionals at digital businesses waste too much time trying to find answers they can trust that help them do their jobs better. We believe this problem isn’t rooted in a lack of knowledge or expertise in the world, but in the deficiencies of tools we rely on to access, share, and improve how work gets done.

To make opportunity available to everyone, we’re building a knowledge platform that technology professionals can trust for documenting, distributing, and collaborating on how they work. We replace tools like Confluence and Google Docs to help individuals quickly access knowledge within and across companies that they can trust deeply.  

We’ve been moving fast since we founded Almanac in January 2019. Since then, we’ve built and launched the initial version of our product to 30 customers, raised a $3M+ seed round from leading Silicon Valley investors, and grown our full-time team to 15 people.

That’s where you come in: we’re now looking for a Brand Marketing Manager to help us define and amplify the Almanac story and drive organic acquisition through social media.

Job Description

We’re looking for a creative, driven, thoughtful marketer to help us build and humanize the Almanac story, and project it out into the world in powerful, measurable ways.

  • Measure the impact of your work, and iterate and learn quickly
  • Conduct user research related to our users’ understanding of Almanac’s messaging
  • Create internal resources—guidelines, materials, processes—for our employees to tell the Almanac story

Experiences that will make you stand out:

  • 2-4 years of brand marketing experience at a leading consumer or enterprise technology company 
  • Managing integrated, cross-functional marketing campaigns from end to end
  • Devising and telling great brand stories that didn’t exist before you
  • Building and running systems to measure brand awareness and engagement
