As an emerging leader in the network security software space, Tailscale has a robust network of existing and potential partners. Building a best-in-class partner marketing program is integral to the success of the business. We’re seeking a strategic and data-driven thinker who can lead dynamic initiatives in collaboration with internal and external partners. From developing in-market plans to driving impactful campaigns, this person will work cross-functionally to drive success for Tailscale and our partners.

You will

  • Act as a Tailscale marketing subject matter expert for our partners by contributing perspective, insights, and knowledge, and taking a balanced consultative and systematic approach to achieve measurable results through joint product and marketing efforts.
  • Establish new partner marketing motions from the ground up to support new partnership types, while also developing and iterating on marketing programs with existing partners.
  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams to drive channel-wide initiatives such as partner comms, launch campaigns, enablement, and content creation.
  • Build and maintain ongoing relationships with key partner stakeholders and marketing counterparts at partner organizations.
  • Define and manage end-to-end go-to-market strategy for our product and marketing partnerships, including messaging, positioning, enablement, events, lead generation, and campaigns.
  • Develop insights based on partner data, measure the effectiveness of partner marketing initiatives, and define key performance indicators aligned with the business and partnership objectives.

Ideally, you have

  • Proven experience in a B2B partnership marketing role (software, SaaS), planning and coordinating marketing campaigns. PLG a plus. 
  • Strong project management skills and the ability to prioritize the most impactful initiatives.
  • The ability to work autonomously, proactively communicate across teams, and strive for clarity in ambiguous environments.
  • Experience using qualitative and quantitative metrics with a focus on product adoption, revenue, sales, and other marketing goals.
  • Excellent interpersonal skills, both virtually and in person.

You should include these in your application

  • Your resume
  • LinkedIn profile
  • An example of a product partnership you built, what it entailed, success metrics, and lessons learned. The more detail the better.
