About Daily

Daily is the developer platform for real-time video. With just a couple lines of code, you can add 1-click video calls to any site or app — in minutes, with features across use cases, on a global infrastructure. Developers can create custom UI/UX with our front-end libraries and REST APIs.

About the role

Be the first marketing hire at an early-stage, collaborative team going after a big market. We hire remote 🌐

At Daily, we build video APIs that let a developer add video chat to any site or app — in minutes, on a global infrastructure, with features for every use case and team. Live video has leapt into mainstream use, and this is just its first phase of growth.

Daily APIs are designed for this key shift, where video is part of how we live and work, and where developers build with services and rely on platforms — like Shopify, Stripe, and Daily — to launch, monetize and scale. With 10x growth this year, we serve teams like startups, high-growth YC teams and public companies in verticals such as healthcare, automotive and real estate.

We are excited to hire our first marketing teammate. Our goal is to be the leader in our global market, known by every developer. This is an opportunity to join an early-stage team, backed by stellar investors, going after a big market. (Our last publicly announced round was a $4.6mm seed.) We care deeply about what we build; believe we succeed when our customers succeed; and believe that kindness and diversity matter.

If you share these values and are a marketer with a track record of results, we’d love to talk.

The work

As the first marketing hire, you are responsible for driving awareness, leads, and acquisition. The role emphasizes metrics and work across disciplines. It does require content and SEO/SEM chops, as well as a knack for understanding the material that engages developers.

Metrics. Simply, you have to love metrics, and thrive with expectations. (We’re a startup that holds itself accountable.) These will include traditional top-of-the-funnel metrics, like traffic, leads across segments, and conversion rates. You’ll help us better understand what metrics are useful to our company-wide goals.

Full-stack marketing. You’re the first marketing hire, so you’ll work across product marketing, content marketing, audience segmentation, messaging, demand generation and more. You put together the strategy, and then do it. As a heads-up, short-term needs include the website, sales enablement material and SEO & analytics platform work.

Developer tools: We only succeed when developers succeed. Our Developer Relations group is focused on providing useful resources, like sample code and blog posts. A company priority is building the SEO/SEM machine so every developer knows about us in general, and our developer resources in particular. More broadly, you must quickly gain insight into developer tools, which are different from both enterprise and consumer. You’ll have an eye for the creativity, randomness, and usefulness developers embrace.

A couple last notes: we place great emphasis on clear writing and clean design. The ability to prioritize is key. There’s a great deal of work to do, and we need a teammate who gets what moves the needle. We are excited to get the chance to build something neat with each other. If you feel the same about great teams and big markets, please reach out, cheers.

  • Can work with cofounders
