You should have:

  • 7 years experience in product marketing in high tech or supply chain and logistics, with a proven track record of launching and scaling new products and solutions.
  • 4 years of leadership experience and the skills, confidence and competence to engage with executives at the strategic and tactical level.
  • Experience with content creation, competitive positioning, product launch planning, customer research and go-to-market strategy.
  • Ability to collaborate with cross-functional teams and influence decision making across all levels of the organization, with a focus on developing a strong relationship and operating cadence with product and tech leadership.
  • Ability to leverage data for decision making and storytelling without becoming slow to act in a performance oriented environment.
