Poll Everywhere is looking for a Director of Marketing to turn broad usage at Fortune 1000 (80%+) and R1 Universities (100%) into Sales Accepted Leads. Marketing is leading our organization into an exciting opportunity to shift fully into Enterprise offerings. The Marketing team is our fastest growing team over the last two years and we expect our new Director to continue to grow the team. We have embraced Account-Based Marketing (ABM) as a strategy across the organization and we are excited to bring a Director on board who can help us move that forward across our teams.

The Director of Marketing should unify and align the Marketing team's objectives, projects, and metrics across top, middle, and bottom funnel tactics to drive more holistic and comprehensive outcomes. The Director of Marketing will assume ownership of the full customer journey through all marketing touchpoints and across all constituents.

Our new Director of Marketing will report to the Chief Revenue Officer and partner with Sales, Success, and Product to achieve the goals and shape our Ideal Customer Profiles. In addition to ABM, Poll Everywhere has embraced a much larger focus on our positioning and utilizing PR and branding as marketing strategies. Alongside our new agency partners, we would like to develop relationships and strategic placements to augment our ABM strategy and ICP targeting.

Poll Everywhere is looking forward to a refreshed mission to make presentations more inclusive. We believe that having our product in use at more of the 17 billion meetings a year in the F1000 would change those organizations through the inclusion of more voices. Our platform enables presenters to create interactive questions, word clouds, discussions, and competitions that their audience can respond to using any device.
