If you see the partner ecosystem as a field of experts, thought leaders, and lead generators, then you’ll be a great fit for this role.  We believe building strong relationships – from our partners to our customers – is a core value for creating a healthy business. You should be passionate about creating value for our partners – from campaigns to enablement to joint go-to-market initiatives.  To be successful in this role, you have experience in working with strategic partners and building scalable programs.

In this role, you’ll get to:

Contribute to TaxJar’s partner program strategy and create a vision for partner co-marketing

  • In collaboration with the Partners and Sales teams, you’ll create a partner marketing program that drives alignment and incentives for strategic partners, and sets the stage for long term growth of the overall partner ecosystem.
  • You’ll build deep relationships with marketing counterparts at our partner companies and develop a strategic understanding of how we mutually benefit from programs.
  • You’ll scale efforts through the TaxJar partner program(s) and develop full funnel campaigns that drive customer acquisition and grow our share of voice.

Enable TaxJar’s partners

  • You’ll develop an end-to-end enablement strategy that captures how different types of partners (and their customers) can grow with us.
  • You’ll create, package, and deliver our go-to-market enablement resources to the partner community in multiple formats (written, video, etc.) that inspires our partners to adopt, market, sell and service our products.
  • You’ll be the ambassador of the TaxJar brand through these partner channels, inclusive of how TaxJar appears on their app listings, websites, and social media.
  • You’ll communicate proactively with partners about our latest product development and company news.

Lead partner programs & events 

  • You’ll deliver on co-marketing commitments tied to new partner agreements and new integration launches
  • You’ll lead partner webinars, events, meetups, and sales programs.
  • You’ll create content and co-branded materials for these programs and events, in partnership with your product marketing and content marketing peers.

Collaborate cross-functionally with internal stakeholders:

  • To be successful in this role, you’ll need substantial cross-functional alignment with sales, partnerships, marketing, and customer success.
    • You’ll work with peers in marketing on messaging, content creation, and measuring impact through reporting and analytics.
    • You’ll collaborate with the partner and sales teams to prioritize campaigns, drive warm leads, accelerate opportunities, and build brand loyalty with the partners.
    • You’ll learn from the customer experience team how to set partner’s customer up for success – from onboarding through adoption.
  • You’ll advocate for our partners and our shared customers across the organization
