Job Description

About Us:  
 
We are a payments infrastructure platform that gives businesses a better way to own, manage, and monetize their entire payments experience without the headaches or expenses associated with building an in-house system from scratch. Payments are the lifeblood of every business, and it is critical to a company’s revenue growth and stand-out customer experience that companies get the underlying technology right. 
 
We are a fast-growing fintech startup recently named to the Forbes Fintech 50 and closed our Series B funding in February 2020. Our primary focus is people, and a core element of every Finix employee is a desire to be challenged. As we continue growing, we are actively looking for payments people of all kinds to join our team. If you’ve made it this far, that might be you!

You Will:
• Deeply understand how to scope and execute marketing strategies needed to reach different customer segments: talk regularly to users and prospects and use sales lifecycle data to inform your work (content, messaging, positioning etc), and conduct thorough competitive intelligence and market research
• Build user personas and ideal customer profiles that will enhance our team’s ability to position our products, demonstrate our value, and engage with prospects where they are most likely to be open to our message.
• Work with the Product and Design teams to develop sales collateral that will be used internally and externally to bring leads further down the funnel. 
• You will thoughtfully focus on product naming and hierarchy strategy with a keen eye on aligning with the brand for future growth.
• Advocate for our existing and prospective users, be informed about our competitive landscape, and become the go-to expert for your product area to help shape the product roadmap and strategy
• Develop product positioning and messaging informed by user research, market insights, and product understanding and build and update personas and ideal customer profiles.
• Work closely with a range of cross-functional teams—product managers, sales, design, PR, and engineering—to develop go-to-market strategy and drive launches for our products
• Help enable user-facing teams at Finix—from Sales and User Operations to work with the Finance and Product teams to set pricing that aligns to the product value proposition and with our users’ success partner with the Product and Growth. 
• You will also conduct internal product training for new hires and sales Work with Customer Success on new feature announcements to existing clients.
• Work with the Marketing team to track the right metrics and execute campaigns that drive awareness and adoption on an ongoing basis
 
Our Ideal Candidate Will Have:
• 7+ years of relevant work experience that can span marketing, product marketing, product management, operational roles, or strategy consulting
• At least 4-5 years of product marketing or go-to-market; experience working in technology, infrastructure, or platform companies is preferred

• Experience working on product marketing throughout a product’s lifecycle Experience in B2B marketing and working closely with sales teams is preferred
