There’s an abundance of valuable public data out there, but it’s buried in siloed, balkanized government databases where it lies largely unusable. Vigilant is a platform for public records data search and monitoring. We unlock that information, make it actionable, and help our customers leverage it to make critical decisions. 

Our customers span financial services, politics, public affairs, and media. Our product suite includes a universal search layer for public data and sophisticated monitoring systems.

Our team is a mix of engineers, open data geeks, and political researchers. We’re looking for candidates comfortable in a high-growth, fast-paced environment. We value tenacity, a commitment to learning, collaboration and direct communication, diverse opinions, and a deep-seated belief in the power of data to inform and improve how things get done.

As our first marketing hire, the Marketing Manager will build and implement the foundations of a successful marketing effort. You will generate high awareness around and interest in Vigilant’s solutions in our target markets and increase Vigilant’s visibility and credibility. This role is both broadly strategic and intensely tactical. You’ll be planning strategies - and executing on the nuts and bolts of them. Insightful analysis and impactful content generation is the core of the role. You’ll create useful and informative content that helps customers understand the need for Vigilant’s platform and the application of public data more broadly.

The work of the Marketing Manager will ultimately be expected to result in a significant increase in the number of inbound leads and expand our business. The space we work in — helping our customers access the information they need from public data to make critical decisions — is exciting and important, and there are a range of exciting opportunities to communicate around this.

About you:
Intense hustle. You believe obstacles are meant to be overcome. When you buy into something you’ll work at it until it gets done.

Clear communicator. You’ll be helping customers and leads understand the kind of problems we can help them solve, and how the solutions we offer work, so you need to be able to articulate value clearly

Analytical thinker. You’re great at breaking down complex problems into a series of clear components, and understanding how they intersect.

Ability and interest in grokking different industries and use cases. You’re excited to do the research to develop a deep understanding of different subjects.

Broadly Creative. You know about what’s been done before, and - like any great artist - you apply it, steal the best bits, and build and innovate on it

Aptitude for digital marketing tools. You stay up-to-date on the latest marketing trends and tools. You get excited about exploring new ways to utilize those tools to improve performance.

Deep empathy for our customers and their needs. You consider how customers and leads may be affected by every action you take.
