Do you believe that creators should get paid for the value they give to their fans? 

We do, which is why we're building Patreon, a platform that powers exclusive content and community experiences for creators with established followings.

  • Develop and drive communication tools and rhythm for GTM Organization updates, directed at teams both within and outside of GTM.
  • Ensure functional learnings and operational best-practices are shared and leveraged across functions.

Who you are:
