Associate Content Marketer

Elementum - Mountain View, CA (30+ days ago)3.1

Who is Elementum?

Think of all the things you own, touch, or use each day: your clothes, your computer, your car. We are living in a $25T product economy, and every single product - whether it's a cup of coffee, the latest smartwatch, or life-saving medicine - has a supply chain through which it is sourced, manufactured, stored, and delivered to the hands of customers. Considering how much we depend on our products, you'd think companies know exactly where their products are at all times. Well, they don't. Actually, they have no idea. That's where Elementum comes in. We are building the world's Product Graph, a digital mapping of the whole global product economy—bigger than Facebook's Social and LinkedIn's Job Graphs COMBINED. With a suite of real-time apps, customers get global visibility and actionable insights to better identify, collaborate on, and resolve issues, finally making operations as smart and proactive as they need to be.
