Company: Twilio

Because you belong at Twilio.

The Who, What, Why and Where

Twilio is growing rapidly and seeking a senior technical product marketing manager (Sr. Technical PMM) full time contractor for its IoT product portfolio.

The person in this role will eventually own a variety of strategic product marketing duties for one of our IoT products, such as product positioning and messaging; enabling sales; leading product launches for technical audiences; building product demos; conducting technical competitive evaluations. 

Reporting to the IoT Principal Product Marketing Manager, this person will become a key member of the team advising and executing on the go-to-market strategy for Twilio IoT, with many direct touch points across our Sales, Sales Engineering, Marketing, Product Management, and (Partner/Vendor) Business Development teams and leadership. 

The ideal candidate would have a solutions engineering, product management, or similar background, who wants to pivot their career to the product marketing field. Somebody who is technical enough to build a product prototype and business-savvy enough to pitch to a decision maker.

Who?

Twilio is looking for an experienced individual contributor who lives the Twilio Magic and has:

  • 5+ years experience in technical product marketing, sales engineering, or product management for complex enterprise software, hardware, or networking.
  • Proof of the technical ability to understand complex software and recognize areas of product integration across other Twilio products, and discuss these with product managers.
  • Proof of having built (software) tools/prototypes or product demos in the past – a “copy&paste” level of basic programming proficiency is fine.
  • Strong analytical skills, to dive into complex subject matters and new industries and distill their essences.
  • Strong communication and storytelling skills, to effectively educate and enable audiences from various backgrounds in visual (Google Slides, email) and verbal form (live or recorded presentations).
  • A background in wireless connectivity, embedded systems, or computer networking – as a nice-to-have. 
  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent experience.  

What?

As a Sr. Technical Product Marketing Manager, IoT, you will live the Twilio Magic values:

  • BE BOLD: Don’t be shy to come up with new ideas for how to improve our products or internal processes, and constantly challenge the status quo – but always be productive and constructive when doing so.
  • BE AN OWNER: We trust each other and take pride in our work, so we also rely on each other to take full ownership and accountability for everything we do. You won’t get micro-managed. 
  • WEAR THE CUSTOMER’S SHOES: A strong voice of the customer is key for the success of our business. Expect to become a trusted advisor to customers, and become trusted by our Sales and Product teams in return.  
  • DON’T SETTLE: Prepare to hear many different points of view across our product And sales engineering team, and weave them - together with your own, which you’ll develop over time - into comprehensive but succinct product demos and market communications 
  • RUTHLESSLY PRIORITIZE: We work in a very fast-paced environment with frequent pivots to stay on top of stakeholder needs. Become an expert at deciding what work may rest, for how long, in favor of more pressing needs as they come up.
