Senior Manager, Technical Product Marketing
Heroku's mission is to make the work of building and deploying applications as seamless and elegant as possible. We want to remove every obstacle that slows down application developers, allowing them to focus on their apps and users while leaving everything else to our service -- and we believe that by doing this, we're radically changing the world of app development for the better.
Heroku serves more than 11 billion requests per day and today powers millions of apps at every scale, from personal hobby projects and small startup apps, all the way up to Internet top-100 apps and the apps of Fortune 500 companies. If you've caught a ride with Scoot, ordered clothes from Bonobos, or you've found a product on Product Hunt, you use an app that runs on Heroku. If you're excited about next-generation application platforms, data platforms, exceptional developer experiences, open source languages and changing the way applications are built and deployed on a PaaS, you'll fit in well with us.
We're looking for a highly technical Product Marketer with a passion for cloud, application development and cloud platform technology, who has a strong aptitude for accelerating the growth of our developer community and overall business. In this role, you will leverage a deep understanding of Heroku's products and customers to accelerate developer engagement and signups, drive conversion and spend rates, and ensure customer success, joy and retention.
You'll help drive strategy but you'll also roll up your sleeves and execute every day, working closely with peers in marketing, product management, engineering, business operations, and sales. You'll have solid developer experience, have probably built a thing or two on Heroku already, and will closely identify with our developer community and their use cases. You'll also have the marketing and communication skills necessary to persuasively represent Heroku products, brand, and soul in all of our marketing, across copy and content, events, demos, and more. The right candidate must be an excellent communicator, able to create effective messaging and build compelling narratives for developers in multiple mediums.
