We?re seeking a hands-on senior product marketer for Proofpoint's Information Archiving & Governance business (think "systems that track and store every employee's email and social communication, and files as appropriate, such that that information can be reviewed and/or retrieved for legal review and compliance purposes. It's a multi-billion-dollar cloud-based big-data challenge). Our best candidates tend to be ex-Product Managers or ex-Sales Engineers -- technically savvy, great listeners and presenters, highly productive creators of sales tools / whitepapers / ROI documents etc. A great candidate is NOT someone whose sole interest is to ?manage the process?, do ?bizdev?, or uses lots of buzzwords.

Come in with a perspective on the right way to use Product Marketing to scale the company, and the initiative to make that perspective a reality. (If you're waiting for your manager to tell you what to do, you're not going to do well). You will work with experienced managers who've built and run some of the best-known companies in Silicon Valley.
We reward creativity and execution, and yet we also value a good sense of humor and believe in maintaining a work-life balance. Come join us as we build a great SaaS company.
