I have questions
If I were to summarize all of my skills and work experience into a single sentence, it would be this:
I do whatever is necessary to drive sustainable growth.
That may, and often does, mean implementing better user tracking for data-backed decision making, optimizing the website for better conversions, and/or automating email drips for periodic contact with customers. It could also mean setting up an entire referral program from scratch, or writing a custom integration with Intercom so that Customer Service can provide a better user experience. With the proper application of skills and imagination, the sky is the limit.
I’ve worked remotely for the last 10 years, and I strongly prefer remote companies, but I’m also open to the right position near Batavia, NY.
I’m currently only interested in full-time employment positions.
I’ve worked with solo entrepreneurs, large corporations, and companies of every size in-between. Size is not important to me so long as communication is good and I have the autonomy to make an impact.
I’ve worked in various positions within organizations. I find that titles such as “Marketing Engineer” and “Growth Hacker” often fit my skillset. Marketing, and the teams that handle it, is unique to each company. I’m also open to to discuss other positions if you think I may be a good fit.
No. While both marketing generalists and marketing engineers will fill multiple roles and perform a variety of tasks, marketing engineers perform tasks based on data they’ve collected and analyzed. A marketing engineer will also have a more technical skillset allowing them to script automations, perform website edits, and manage integrations.
Having founded a few companies, I’m quite comfortable in a leadership role, but I’m also content as an individual contributor. I find that good leaders were often good followers, and my management style is one of empowerment not micro-management.
