As the Customer Marketing Manager, your strategic responsibilities will


  • Establishing our customer marketing program. You’ll be on the ground floor of defining what “customer marketing” means at Clearbit
  • Building rapport with customers to increase renewals, referrals, and cross-sell and upsell opportunities

  • Leading and managing customer engagement and communication programs, such as in-person/virtual events, workshops, annual conferences, awards programs, onboarding and ongoing nurture campaigns
  • Connecting with customers to ensure continued education and success throughout the relationship lifecycle
  • Identifying key customers that can act as a marketing channel through case studies, speaking opportunities, etc.
  • Help marketing and sales meet business objectives through customer advocacy initiatives

Your tactical responsibilities will include:

  • Compose and send customer emails
  • Manage and maintain engagement and advocacy programs; continually recruit new customer advocates
  • Manage a library of up-to-date customer success stories

Don’t meet 100% of the criteria, but think you can do the job? We’d love to chat anyway! We’re on a mission to build diverse teams, and studies have shown that women and folks from marginalized communities are less likely to apply to jobs if they don’t check every box.

We value and celebrate how you identify, who you love, the color of your skin, your age (at heart and on paper), the gods you do or don't believe in, and every other belief and characteristic that make you YOU. The more inclusive we are, the better we — and our work — will be.
