  • An open-minded innovator who is on top of the newest MarTech, identifies which tools are truly valuable, and tests them for effectiveness.
  • Proven experience planning and executing programs across the developer journey.
  • A strong desire to keep learning and stay on top of the growth craft (Timescale will pay for you to attend conferences, take courses, and keep your skills state-of-the-art).
  • A proven self-starter who seeks out sophisticated projects and is capable of completing them start-to-finish.
  • Excellent written communication skills.
