VP of Corporate Storytelling

You are adept at translating complex technical concepts into stories that connect with interlocutors and delivered by a team of media and content professionals. The book “Building a StoryBrand“ will be on your nightstand, and as you read this, you are mentally correcting, this, prose. You are thinking: I could this better! You will be a data-driven growth-oriented cross-team contributor with practical experience across all marketing functions but with particular emphasis on PR, social media and content marketing. You may have an agency background but not constrained by traditional agency or marketing thinking. You don't want to have an interview, but you are bursting at the seams to explain your value-add to DataRobot.
