Thanks for checking out our job description for Product Marketing Director at Impala. We felt a little bit impersonal just diving straight in with words like “revolutionising” and “disrupting”.
As such, we apologise in advance for any clichés, tropes or sudden-insecurity-driven-panic-attacks that you might find in the description below.
You may remember us as one of the best companies in London to work for (here) or as one of the Top 50 start-ups in Europe to watch this year (here). Either way we’re a company that gets annoyed by only two things; bad travel, closed platforms and off by one errors.
Impala is the company that empowers innovators to build next generation travel experiences on top of best in class APIs. Think Twilio or Plaid for travel.
About the Product Marketing Director role:
We’re looking for someone that is a strategic executor to take on initially an IC role (although with the opportunity to transition to people management in the medium term). This is the first Product Marketing role at Impala and as such you’ll have the opportunity, and resources, to shape the role and function, reporting directly to the CEO (who leads product, and occasionally writes job descriptions, hello!).
A brief overview of what you will be doing here:
- You’ll work collaboratively with our product teams to articulate the value proposition and positioning of the platform that will become the heart of an industry.
- You’ll be responsible for the GTM of Booking, ensuring that it is seen as a market leader among both hoteliers and developers.
- You’ll be doing and discussing, as this role is both hands-on and strategic.
- You’ll oversee all aspects of Product Marketing and will be involved in everything from deck creation, hosting webinars, speaking with analysts, interviewing customers and building strategies.
You should join us if you:
- Are a first-principles thinker that questions the status quo to get to the best solution.
- Have experience owning Product Marketing, preferably in B2B SaaS or B2D.
- Have launched new products and are deeply knowledgeable about successful GTM tactics.
- Are a storyteller, understand how to position a product and have experience communicating complex technical concepts to unfamiliar audiences.
- Are a strategic executor that is as comfortable discussing the advantages of going long on debates around pricing strategy as you are hacking together early landing pages.
- An active listener and customer developer. You’re extremely comfortable on customer calls.
- Abhor bad design.
You shouldn’t join us if (we want to be as honest and transparent as we can):
- You value stability in a product and company, over change and fast-growth.
- You shy away from candour and fast-paced environments.
- You think lofty goals are better left to renovation builders.
Apply if you want to bring your innovation bent and product-obsession to help change the game in travel.
