Product Marketing Manager

| Watertown
At Markforged we are on a mission to empower engineers to unlock the next 10x of innovation in design and manufacturing. We build an Industrial 3D printing platform to liberate designers and engineers from decades-old, slow processes.
Product Marketing at Markforged is a newly formed team that brings together customer, market, and competitive intelligence to connect customer needs to Markforged solutions in a way that resonates with our customers and differentiates us in the market to drive growth. The team draws on its market and customer expertise to provide go-to-market leadership, personas, messaging, positioning, and sales tools.
This is an exciting opportunity to join our product marketing team as one of the key storytellers.
Markforged is growing rapidly and if you like engineering - this could be the place for you. We live at the intersection of electrical, material, mechanical and computer engineering. Our challenge is to explain to the market fairly new and complex technology in distilled way that our customers - mechanical, design, and manufacturing engineers get. You don't have to be an engineer to work here, just someone who is inherently curious about the nature of the additive manufacturing revolution and wants to tell the story.
This position is a full-time, regular employee role out of our Watertown, MA office.

In this role, you will:

  • Talk with our product, sales, application engineering and advanced engineering teams to understand product features and benefits, then translate these to market consumable concepts
  • Speak on behalf of the company at trade shows and events
  • Pay attention to competitors and provide analysis on what this means to our product direction and market posture
  • Build content and tools for the sales team.
  • Help run our customer and partner conferences delivering value added knowledge about additive manufacturing
  • Become a go to industry persona (if you do the job right) on all things additiveBe a goto internal sales resource, called in to help with deals
  • Be a goto internal sales resource, called in to help with deals

What we look for:

  • 0 - 3 years product marketing experience demonstrated by either being a current product marketer or roles that would align well with product marketing
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills. You have to hold the attention of sales people during training and customers during webinars
  • Intellectually curious - if additive manufacturing and 3D printing doesn't get you excited about how cool and interesting it is, this probably isn't the right place for you. We love this stuff. Not all of us came from this domain, but we came here since we think it is the future.
  • Story telling - Ability to dig in and translate technical content into compelling messaging
  • Equally comfortable and experienced as both a data driven and a creative problem solver
  • Desire to win - we are 200+ people with a desire to win in a fiercely competitive space.
  • MBA is a plus, but not required. Engineering degree is a plus, but not required.

An Insider's view of Markforged

What are some social events your company does?

Our office has periodic happy hours and company offsite parties, as well as a weekly all-hands meeting where different teams present and lunch is served.

Daniel

Content Engineer

What does your typical day look like?

Every day for me is a little different. Typically, I'd start the day by checking on the results of some multi-day experiments or pull parts out of experimental furnace runs for our metal system. Later in the day, I'd kick off the next set of experiments, which could be something like a regular print or a special furnace run.

Michelle

Materials R&D Engineer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started at Markforged on the Solutions team. After taking the initiative to learn, attend trade shows, and help with training sessions, the growth of the applications team allowed me to graduate to the role of an Application Engineer. Markforged has continuously allowed me to use my increasing expertise and skill set to grow my career.

Michelle

Application Engineer

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Business Ops is responsible for the systems architecture, processes, and data that will allow Markforged to scale efficiently. We start every morning with team stand-up. We cover sales, channel, marketing, and office ops - so we communicate often to stay coordinated in Markforged’s fast paced environment.

Hoppy

Vice President, Business Operations

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Making sure that as we scale we are still moving quickly. We have grown a lot, and I think the real complication is that we now have a lot of legacy products. The most important thing is that we never stop supporting customers and those products. You can't forget about your last printer while you're working on your new one.

Julie

Director, Product Management
