As such, you will work with our marketing team to develop white papers, insight, market analysis and other content that will reinforce the Pugpig brand as an industry leader in delivering digital publishing products.

  • You have experience in managing teams to deliver product strategy
  • You love speaking to customers and have excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • You have opinions about the industry and you’re willing to share them in public
  • You’re happy working in a busy, buzzy environment and are adept at juggling multiple priorities at a time
  • You’re tech savvy and have a genuine interest in software and products
