About the Role:
Planet is looking for a strategic product marketer to help grow the market for Planet’s data and platform, and enable business expansion by operationalizing go-to-market strategies across industries and countries. You will be part of the marketing team, sitting within the dynamic Product & Solutions Marketing group.
This product marketer will be embedded in broad cross-functional, go-to-market initiatives that ultimately drive revenue for Planet’s high-resolution data products, including those forthcoming from Pelican, our next-generation satellite constellation. Responsibilities include engaging with customers, partners, and internal stakeholders, leading product launch activities, building messaging and positioning, and synthesizing market trends and new use cases that Planet products can address.
You will work closely with the Product organization in defining customer & partner challenges and providing input to the roadmap for new features that address critical unmet needs. You will work closely with the Commercial organization to ensure “field readiness,” determine effective engagement strategies and arming them with the right messaging, content, and competitive insights.
To be successful in this role, you will bring a clear perspective on how to bring new geospatial data-as-a-service (DaaS) and enterprise software products to an evolving market, with a detailed understanding of how to develop buyer and user personas and the stages of their buying journey. An attention to detail and an eye for high quality are critical to your success, along with an ability to articulate our products’ differentiated value in ways that resonate with our audiences in different industries. This role is expected to routinely present at external conferences, events, and webinars, and should be adept at public speaking and evangelizing Planet’s mission and products.
