We're looking for a motivated, energetic professional to lead our outreach and marketing activities. You will create demand for the Globus service, and help grow our subscriber base by engaging a broad set of constituents that includes researchers, cyber-infrastructure providers, and software developers.

Most of your time will be spent on managing events and campaigns to attract new users and motivate existing users of the free service to become paying subscribers. This includes maintaining an active presence on Twitter and LinkedIn, creating email blasts and newsletters, and ensuring our web site remains fresh, attractive, and professional.

You'll be expected to write a bunch, but more often you'll be looking for opportunities to re-use existing content ...and occasionally herding cats (getting Globus team members to commit to writing something and chasing after them until it's done)!

You'll also work with others on the customer team to engage existing subscribers and make sure they have the materials they need to grow usage of the service at their institution. We enjoy building lasting relationships with IT professionals and researchers in all sorts of disciplines, from sociology to machine learning—we hope you will too but, if you're not that way inclined, that's cool.

This position has plenty of opportunity for professional development. Because we're such a small team, everyone gets to wear multiple hats, so you can learn a lot about working with our partners on joint programs, developing relationships with writers and editors at various tech publications, and dreaming up interesting new ways to make Globus appealing to our user community.

If you check some (or all!) of the boxes below, apply now—we're itching to hear your story.

  • You're an intelligent self-starter: someone who can take ideas from concept to completion, but is also not afraid to ask for help and input from the rest of the team.
  • You feel most at home on a small team where seniority takes a back seat to initiative, energy, and a willingness to learn.
  • You get a kick out of crafting clever campaigns and love the idea of working with some of the smartest researchers around the world to take their work to the next level.
  • You know what communications resonate with end users, software engineers, CIOs, and everyone in between—but you’re not an expert yet, and that's OK!
  • You’ve worked in a research computing environment and really want to engage more broadly with researchers and technologists.

If you have at least three years of software marketing and communications experience you should fit right in. We care a lot about the quality of your writing, familiarity with social platforms, and attention to detail so nothing falls through the cracks. If you've managed your company's presence at an industry trade show, that's very useful. And if you know something about infrastructure software, e.g. HPC, cloud computing, storage, networks, that's perfect!

We are a diverse, distributed team so you can work from anywhere, and have flexibility in your daily routine—all that matters are results, so you should be comfortable managing long-running projects with minimal supervision and consistently meeting deadlines.
