VP Marketing / CMO

Gorgias

San Francisco, CA, USA

Full time

Mar 11

Meet Gorgias, the customer service platform that’s designed for ecommerce merchants, and built to support all the tools in their stack. Our product unifies support over email, live chat, voice, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and SMS in one feed to help our merchants provide exceptional customer experiences at scale on Shopify, BigCommerce, and Magento.

In Gorgias, every incoming support ticket displays customer info such as order and conversation history, giving agents the context they need to provide the fast support customers expect. Plus, support teams can work more efficiently by easily viewing, tagging, and prioritizing every open ticket across all their support channels.

We even process these tickets with our proprietary machine learning algorithms, and can deflect up to a third of repetitive merchant tickets without human interaction, through our Automation Add-on. Everything we do is for our customers, and we’re currently serving over 10,000+ e-commerce merchants, including Steve Madden, Timbuk2, Decathlon, and Sports Illustrated. They love us for our innovative product, our focus on their ecommerce needs, and, of course, our lightning-fast customer service response times.

We raised our $25 million Series B round in December 2020 and our $30 million Series C round this year. In between, we more than doubled in size in every meaningful way: annual recurring revenue, the size of our customer base, and the size of our Gorgias team, for starters. We’re still growing fast and looking for new teammates who want to grow with us.

Join our team for the opportunity to:

Your OKRs

  • Generate $10m in ARR per year from marketing, closed by the sales team, through demand generation. Our demand generation team is pretty mature and relies on outbound marketing, referrals and the Shopify App Store (more on this here). We need to build step level improvements here.
  • Ecommerce is no longer about acquiring one time customers but about building a brand. We need to educate the whole Shopify ecosystem on the value of exceptional customer experience to build their brand. We've done a good job with dtcx.io, a community of partners on customer experience, but we need to scale it to a whole new level and make it a community similar to Inbound by Hubspot or SaaStr. We are currently in 30% of helpdesk deals on Shopify, we want to reach 60% through this.
  • Scale our product marketing and customer marketing efforts by articulating the value proposition for prospects currently using Zendesk (50% of ARR), and for merchants using their first helpdesk (50%) ARR

Your Experience

  • You've led a whole marketing org (10+ people), ideally you have a demand generation background and more recently took ownership of brand. This way, you can coach our lead gen team while building the brand aspect. You've seen the journey from ˜30 to ˜75-100m ARR in an SMB company.
  • You like numbers just like we do. You score ideas based on impact+cost. You're ok to learn SQL and do your own simple data analysis. We want a leader who can go deep.
  • You can articulate a brand strategy to educate merchants on the value of exceptional customer experience.
  • You like to move FAST and achieve big things. You have a ton of energy and you communicate this to people on your team.
  • You have experience with high velocity b2b SaaS (but b2c works too), with an annual contract value between $1k and $10k. You're able to spot opportunities for improvement in our current growth engine.
