About Wistia:

We serve companies small and large, and teams ranging from marketing and sales to support and HR.  

We are growing fast even though we’ve been around since 2006. We unabashedly enjoy the fun culture and nimbleness typical of a tech startup, but we’re profitable and have chosen to raise only seed money, so we have the luxury of being able to control our investments into whatever we think will best serve the long-term value of the company.

You will have an appreciation for the power of both awareness and direct response techniques and be able to leverage both in self-reinforcing ways in the media strategy. Your approach will be rooted in testing, measuring, optimizing and scaling what is working.

  • Feel comfortable with both B2B and B2C approaches to marketing and media
  • Know the ins and outs of digital media like the back of your hand, but are also well-practiced across offline channels
