We're looking for a B2B Marketing Manager to join our team
We are looking for a Mid-Level B2B marketing extraordinaire to join our fast-growing tech startup.
Are you an innate brand builder with a passion for all things marketing? You will probably have marketing experience scaling a fast-growing SaaS company, spinning plates to increase top of funnel demand, driving brand exposure, creating product marketing masterpieces to nudge prospects down the pipeline and revel in supporting a growing community of customers. You’ll have creative flair and a desire to do things differently and you’ll use that ability to build a phenomenal strategy to put Duel on the map. But you’ll then not be afraid to roll up your sleeves and implement it, creating magic with limited resources.
