- Project Management
MarkLogic became the world’s best database for integrating data from silos – by thinking differently. When it comes to our marketing team, we think Sales teams rock. We don’t believe in marketing hype and do believe that telling our customers’ stories of how they’re solving complex data challenges, is the best way to tell ours. If you’re like-minded, thrive on the creative and analytical fusion of marketing, we should talk.
ARE YOU A FIT FOR OUR COLLABORATIVE WORK ENVIRONMENT?
As the only NoSQL vendor named a challenger in the 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for ODMS and with a track record of exceptional work with customers such as DIA, CMS, and OECD (as well as private sector companies like Chevron, J&J, and Sony), we’re looking for a highly motivated, audience-focused marketer to support our growing public sector business. The Solutions Marketing Manager is responsible for developing messaging and content in collaboration with technical and sales leaders and demand gen teams in each of our regions – North America, Europe & APJ.
As solutions marketing manager for public sector, you will be responsible for developing and implementing account-focused and persona-based messaging, marketing content, and sales tools that increase awareness and adoption of solutions built on the MarkLogic database platform.

The perfect candidate has a strong understanding of business and market drivers, a way with words, and the ability to challenge conventional thinking. You’ll work cross-functionally with technical subject matter experts, sales reps, demand gen campaign managers, and other members of the marketing team to help us successfully explain how amazingly useful MarkLogic solutions are for mission/program and technical stakeholders in the public sector.
