We are looking for a growth-focused Marketing Director with a strategic vision and an entrepreneurial spirit.

Your vision and experience will directly influence the strategies we pursue, the tactics we employ, and the necessary testing that helps us improve. 
To date, we’ve reached thousands of customers in over 200 countries primarily through brand marketing, word-of-mouth, and events like tradeshows and webinars. You'll expand our reach with your expertise in growth marketing and formalize our strategy to generate leads via a mix of traditional and emerging channels.

  • Identify and onboard new marketing technologies, agencies, and vendors that will assist you in maximizing qualified leads and improve our marketing reach and efficiency.
  • Secure media placement in collaboration with PR consultants.


  • 5+ years of experience developing and deploying ROI-positive lead generation programs for global SaaS companies in SMB markets
  • Track record of building quantitative and experiment-based processes to continually improve decision making 
  • Demonstrated ability to balance strategic thinking and tactical execution
  • Excellent communication skills and emotional intelligence 
  • Avid learner, teacher, and mentor to the team
  • Comfortable with autonomy and ambiguity that comes with small, fast-moving startups
  • Able to work from our San Francisco office 3 days per week (post-COVID-19)
We are a tight-knit bunch of creative, curious, and passionate people plus two office dogs, who would love to welcome another positive personality. If you’re quick-witted and excited about the things you do, whether inside or outside of the office, you’ll easily fit in with the group. 
Folsom Labs is committed to building diverse teams across the company and is an equal opportunity employer.
