About This Role

Strava is the leading digital community for active people with more than 120 million athletes, in more than 190 countries. The platform offers a holistic view of your active lifestyle, no matter where you live, which sport you love and/or what device you use. Everyone belongs on Strava when they are pursuing an active life.

At Strava, we’ve got a mission to connect the world through movement, and we’re committed to providing the endless motivation for athletes of all levels to live their best active life. To further this mission, we’re looking for an experienced Product Marketing expert to join our ambitious Product Marketing team at a pivotal and exciting time for the organization.

In this role, you’ll be responsible for working across teams including Product, Brand & Social Media, Comms, Creative, Growth, Partnerships, UX Research and Consumer Insights, and more to bring your vision for helping Strava’s 120M+ athletes truly get the most out of their Strava experience. You’ll focus on bringing product features to life that truly help reinforce the value of our Subscription product, while helping influence the long-term direction of the Strava Brand.

  • Thrive in collaborative environments. You will work closely with our UX and consumer insights research teams to develop consumer insights that inform the product roadmap and marketing plans, as well as test the efficiency of your marketing efforts.
  • Are action-oriented. You’ll lead go-to-market plans supporting Product priorities and new innovation (e.g. activation and onboarding experience, activity-related features, Brand partner integrations, the subscription experience), and have a knack for finding and maximizing opportunities as they arise.

You will be successful here by:

  • Taking an audience-first approach, putting the user at the center of every decision you make. You are able to develop an understanding of how best to reach and inspire our users quickly, knowing what data to leverage and how to access and interpret it.
  • Leading with ambition, optimism, and energy, seeking out opportunities to drive meaningful impact and can rally a broad cross-functional team to a unified vision.
  • Weaving marketing expertise and creativity in order to bring great features to market in both proven and new ways.
  • Collaborating at the highest level with product and cross-functional teams to deliver maximum value for Strava users through a highly integrated experience.
  • Embracing ambiguity and change, thriving in an ever-evolving environment of business needs and priorities.

We're excited about you because you have:

  • 8+ years of professional experience in marketing in a corporate or startup environment
  • A proven track record of driving successful go-to-market launches that drive product adoption in a distinctive and memorable way while delivering impact to the bottom line
  • Directly managed a person or team
  • Fluency with data, including market and segment sizing, forecasting, and marketing efficacy in partnership with Business Growth and Analytics teams
  • Fitness industry or Brand Marketing experience a plus, but not required
  • A BA, MBA preferred (not required)
