To support its rapid growth, OpenSesame needs an experienced, data-driven VP of Marketing with a track record of success in B2B (enterprise-focused) brand building, demand gen and content marketing. The company is seeking a true leader who can think strategically. as well as tactically, and develop and mentor a small in-house team today while building out the function as a strategic partner to the senior management team.

The VP Marketing will guide all day-to-day aspects of marketing, including account based marketing, content marketing, social marketing, and marketing automation. Using a deft combo of strategic eye and hands­on touch, the VPM will develop and execute integrated marketing campaigns to a variety of industry verticals and company sizes, including organized lead and demand generation programs, brand building, and cooperative campaigns with OpenSesame’s channel partners, along with PR. The VP Marketing must be adept at balancing the needs of lead-gen and direct response with brand building.

The VP Marketing will also measure and analyze return on spend to ensure the company is allocating resources optimally to drive pipeline, bookings and marketplace awareness.

Experience somewhere in eLearning would be great, but is not required. Ditto for selling into enterprise scale HR organizations. Most important, perhaps, are solid B2B chops marketing SaaS type solutions to larger enterprise customers.

This executive will need to be well versed in working closely with a sales team (currently about 15 strong), managing a diverse tech stack and marketing to partners, as well as existing customers to help them be successful leveraging the OpenSesame platform. We are not seeking a quasi-Sales pro, but the VPM will bring complementary skills to make sales even better.
