Senior Product Marketing Manager at Ashby (W19)
Intelligent and powerful all-in-one recruiting software
About Ashby

Hi! I'm Benji, the Co-Founder and CEO at Ashby. At Ashby, we're improving the productivity of working professionals with intelligent and powerful software. We put a lot of effort into designing products that are approachable to beginners but mastered & extended by power users. In many ways, spreadsheets set the bar here.

Our first products provide talent teams with clever automation, powerful analytics tools, and customizable workflows packaged in great UX. We haven't launched publicly, but we have many paying customers who love us and use us every day like Opendoor, Airtable, Duolingo, and Notion. Notion's Head of Talent said Ashby is "probably the tool we are in the most and rely on the most, as a recruiting team."

Our culture is motivated by Abhik's (my co-founder and Head of Engineering) and my belief that a small talented team, given the right environment, can build a great product and service fast (and work regular hours!). We hire exceptional, kind, thoughtful people and provide an environment where we can be happy, feel challenged, and do our best work.

We are well funded and backed by great investors, including Y Combinator, Elad Gil, and Lachy Groom. We'll share more once we meet!

About the role

About this Role

We are looking for our first Product Marketing Hire who will help tell Ashby's story to prospects and customers (as you may have noticed, we've been pretty quiet to date). You will work closely with me (CEO & Co-Founder) and our small marketing team to draft Ashby's initial messaging and positioning, refine our release marketing and prepare our public launch.

About Ashby

We’re building the next generation of enterprise software and we’re starting with a suite of products that help talent leaders, recruiters, and hiring managers run their hiring process significantly better (we haven’t shared much publicly about what we’re building yet, but we’ll be more specific once we meet).

We are well funded and backed by great investors, including Y Combinator, Elad Gil and Lachy Groom.

We have not launched publicly yet, but we're already working with amazing companies, such as Opendoor, Airtable, Snyk, Benchling and Notion (and many others which we cannot name yet) - it's a great time to join 🚀


Our technology stack is: TypeScript (frontend & backend), Node.js, React, Apollo GraphQL, Postgres, Redis.

We don’t require previous experience with these, but experience with and love for typed languages are helpful!

We care a lot about optimizing our tools and automating workflows as it allows us to work with smaller teams. You should share that enthusiasm and be excited to contribute.
