Observable is redefining how businesses create and share data apps by giving developers the tools they need to create their best data apps, dashboards, and reports. Our open-source Framework allows developers to build dashboards locally while our secure hosting service makes it easy for teams to share data apps and discover deeper insights together.

As a Demand Generation Manager, you will work closely with the Head of Marketing, VP of Sales, and Office of the CEO to lead marketing growth and optimize our marketing funnel from acquisition to conversion to retention.

  • Guide all lead generation efforts, including field marketing and ABM programs
  • Own our self-serve signup flow, including new user onboarding emails and lifecycle marketing efforts
  • Manage developer-centric performance marketing programs on LinkedIn, Google Ads, Reddit, and other platforms
  • Propose and run tests across the marketing funnel to improve performance against goals
  • Provide input into our revenue model based on data and campaign performance
  • Optimize other user acquisition channels including SEO and email marketing

What you bring:

  • 4+ years of hands on experience and a track record of effectively driving sales leads and signups among a technical audience
  • Experience creating growth models and marketing dashboards to track progress
  • Experience marketing a product to a technical audience
  • In-depth knowledge of the business intelligence, embedded analytics, or data visualization landscape
  • Ability to clearly advocate for your ideas and recommendations
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills with the desire to share technical knowledge and information with others
  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent practical/work experience
