Do you believe that creators should have the ability to get paid for the value they give to their fans?
We do, which is why we’re building Patreon, a platform that powers membership services for creators with established followings. Patreon strives to provide creators with insight, education, and tools that make it possible to retain creative control while running their creative business, so creators can focus on creating and energizing their fanbases.
We have paid over $350 million directly to creators on our platform, and our user base has doubled in the last year alone. In order to support this level of growth, we are looking for a senior executive leader to join our Leadership team and manage our Marketing, Sales, and Success functions.
What you will do:
- Set the strategic direction and execute Patreon’s go-to-market strategy. Manage our Marketing, Strategic Sales, and Customer Success functions, reporting directly to the CEO. Drive annual and quarterly planning of our GTM teams and own global expansion efforts across the teams.
- Develop and scale growth levers across creator acquisition and creator earnings expansion to drive revenue. In partnership with product leadership, use a data-informed approach to help Patreon hit our growth and revenue objectives. Drive widespread, broad-scale adoption of new products and services to creators.
- Drive consistent reporting and tracking. Report on the performance of our creator acquisition and expansion metrics with a focus on driving LTV/CAC channel performance.
- Develop our team. Motivate, coach, and mentor the existing team. Build a long-term plan for team structure and the growth of our team members. Make Patreon a great place to work, and build a diverse and inclusive team that executes on its objectives.
Skills and experience you possess:
- 15+ years B2B2C SaaS leadership experience in marketing, sales, and success, including experience expanding to international markets. Our ideal candidate has deep expertise in a revenue-driving domain, with additional experience managing or closely partnering with the functions mentioned above. In addition, the ideal candidate can convert a traditional SaaS playbook to fit our creator-centric organization.
- Excellent written and verbal communication skills with an emphasis on candor, clarity, and empathy.
- Ability to inspire the company with your creator centrism, passion, and appreciation for artists and creators.
- Ability to launch and manage programs at scale across Marketing, Sales, and Success teams.
- Track record of owning a core company KPI and hitting ambitious outcomes at Series C/D companies.
- Management and leadership experience with multi-layered teams of 15+ people.
- Ability to build alignment internally and externally (creators, board, potential investors) for strategic plans and initiatives.
- Track record of recruiting and retaining senior talent.
