Product Marketing Manager

Department: Marketing
Location: San Mateo, CA

Overview

Backblaze is a pre-IPO company that makes storing and using data astonishingly easy - helping developers build new applications, scientists conduct COVID research, and folks like Austin City Limits preserve irreplaceable musical performances. We see tremendous potential rooted in ease of use because extreme robustness doesn’t matter when it’s too complex to use effectively.

This is where you shine: we seek a dynamic Product Marketing Manager who appreciates what storage can really mean and is excited to build out strategies, messages, and programs bringing the value to life for bigger business customers. This is your chance to be both strategic and tactical - working with a committed team of marketers plus colleagues in Sales and Product Management. You’ll be a mini-GM with revenue responsibility and budget to deliver it, much opportunity to stretch and grow, and significant exposure to senior leadership.

Ready to have a BIG impact and fun in a refreshingly open, ego-free, and diverse work environment? 

This San Mateo-based position (when we can all safely return to the office) reports to our head of product marketing.
