Director, Digital Marketing
Aha! is a different kind of high-growth SaaS company. We are the world's #1 roadmap software and help people achieve their best. Over 5,000 enterprises and 500,000 product, innovation, and engineering leaders trust our software to build lovable products and be happy doing it. We are self-funded, highly profitable, always distributed, and have no sales team. Being an always-remote company means we hire intrinsically motivated people who love to learn, support their teammates, and want to work from where they are happiest.
The Aha! marketing team is a highly collaborative group of experts across digital, communications, and product marketing disciplines. We work within North American time zones so we can easily meet live on video and achieve more together.
We drive growth: Aha! does not have a sales team — marketing is responsible for increasing awareness and trial sign-ups.
We give big effort: We work exceptionally hard and fast, constantly producing content that engages new customers and brings value to existing ones.
We are curious: We seek to better understand our market, customers, and products so we can clearly articulate the unique value of what we offer.
We have fun: We care deeply about our teammates, always making time to celebrate, support, and laugh with each other.
The marketing team is responsible for driving customer growth and expanding company awareness. We are fortunate to have a large audience and be recognized as product and company building thought leaders.

We do our planning and collaboration in Aha! Roadmaps. We are power users of our own software, often providing feedback and suggestions for improvements that are shipped to customers too. We use Slack and Zoom for video calls. (Email? Rarely.)
