Our Core Values

1

Growth Mindset

We focus on 1% improvements and believe in the compound effect of growth. Creating a better future and inspiring continuous self-improvement are our ultimate drivers. Once we find the edge of our comfort zone, we jump out of it – again and again.

2

Candid Communication

We don’t sugarcoat anything, and you’ll never wonder where we stand; we’re direct, honest, and candid for the greater good. We’re each other’s toughest critics – but also each other’s loudest supporters. Critical feedback is our oxygen, and we stay focused on creating the best outcome for our clients and team.

3

Machine Builders

We’re process-driven so we can deliver magical moments at scale. Looking for repeatability in our operations (and documenting it) is how we build freedom and consistency in our work to benefit our team and our clients.

4

Customer Backwards

Our mantra is to create more value for our clients than anyone else in the world. We work backwards from a world-class experience, mapping out the touch points that will lead to “WOW!” We give unconditionally. It’s not a business strategy; it’s who we are.

5

Create Leaders

We’ve created an environment that grows our team members, who then create value for our clients. The business then works with our clients, team, and community to solve problems impacting our world and teach them to be courageous. We build the people, and the people build the business.

Generous Benefits

We believe that when we take care of our team, our team will take care of our members. Join a 100% remote team from all over the world.

How We Hire

You’ll go through our recruiting process in the following order. Certain positions might have small variations to the process, but most positions are similar to the steps below.

Step 1: Application Review

This is an opportunity to show us how your background fits in with what we’re looking for in our new hire. You’ll provide a resume to showcase what you’ve done elsewhere.

Please note: a 1-minute video is required for consideration. See how to CRUSH your application to SaaS Academy.

Step 2: 15-Minute Initial Chat

You’ll have a 15-minute call to discuss a high-level overview of your experience and if you’ll be a good match to join the team. We’ll cover expectations, what you’ll need to succeed, and what working on the team might look like.

Step 3: Strengths Tests

You’ll then be sent two complete tests from the Predictive Index (PI), which should only take you about 20 minutes. The first test is for gauging how you interact and do work, and the second test is to find out your learning preference.

Step 4: 30-Minute Video Call

At this step, you’ll have a conversation with your future direct manager to get to know each other and discuss the ideal test project to get the ball rolling.

Step 5: Test Project

This is your (paid) opportunity to work with us as if you’re already a member of our team. It’s just as important for us to see what it's like to work with you as it is for you to see what it's like to work with us! Give the test project your best shot, and if things go well, we’ll make you an offer.

Step 6: Final Call with the CEO

You’ll have a conversation with Dan Martell our CEO. 

Step 7: Offer

You’ve completed a test project, and we enjoy working together. At this point, you’ll receive an official offer from our team that, if you accept, will be the start of a rewarding and exciting experience.

About the Role

We’re looking for an experienced marketing leader to drive the marketing strategy for SaaS Academy, audit and improve our customer journey, and successfully partner closely with the Sales Team to exceed revenue targets. We need a savvy, fast-moving, data-driven leader that has a customer-first mentality.

They will work daily with our demand generation and creative teams to improve the quality and efficacy of our work and ensure we are representing the voice of our customers to evolve the SaaS Academy brand. They will measure and communicate the success of the marketing through email marketing, reduced lead-to-opportunity times, and qualitative feedback approaches and programs in collaboration with our Director of Revenue Operations and Chief Operation and Revenue Officers to ensure the strategy supports SaaS Academy’s revenue targets and Vivid Vision.

  • Nurture the Customer Journey: Audit the customer journey which includes how we attract core customers, share client wins and results and build trust in our brand. Our marketing content should enter the conversation already going on in our prospective clients’ minds and should speak directly to the struggles they’re already thinking about.

  • Support the Sales Team: Partner with the Director of Sales to drive qualified prospective clients to the funnel and engage them with the right messaging. The Director of Marketing will identify the key assets to support the Sales Team to improve show rates, one-call closes, and post-call follow-up.

Ideal Candidate

  • Drive the Marketing Strategy: Within the first 90 days, the newly developed marketing strategy will deliver $3.6M in pipeline month-over-month, which equates to 120 SaaS Academy qualified appointments conducted monthly. Construct ROI models and forecast the financial impact of marketing strategies, campaigns, and initiatives.
  • Nurture the Customer Journey: Within the first 120 days, lead a project to consolidate and improve the experience of prospective clients through our existing funnels, and ensure our pages are on message and converting well. Increased appointments booked from customers about the quality and timeliness of our funnels.
  • Support the Sales Team: Within the first 30 days, a sales enablement roadmap will be created and then executed over the following 12 months which will result in a reduction in average times to close and increased show rates. Help the company engage with prospective clients and leverage this to attract new core customers and grow our brand attraction.
