What you’ll do

At Timescale, a Product Marketing Manager defines the story behind a product, helping us crisply identify the audience for our product, craft the proper positioning and messaging for the product to meet the audience’s needs, and drive the launch and continued success of the product in-market.

Product Marketing is a highly cross-functional role at Timescale, partnering across Engineering, Product Management, Sales, and Marketing. Product Marketing works across the entire product lifecycle, helping shape the scope and features of the product, driving launch and go-to-market strategy/execution, and working with our Growth Marketing and Developer Advocacy teams to grow adoption post-launch.
