Position Description

As Toptal’s Brand Manager, you will be an essential part of the newly formed brand team, charged with building a world-class brand marketing function to drive awareness of Toptal and all we have to offer. You’ll report to the Brand Director and collaborate with key partners, including Design, Content, PR, Events, Enterprise, and Growth, to develop our campaigns and marketing assets to achieve our goals.

You should have experience in traditional 360 B2B and B2C brand marketing and advertising, as well as the ability to think outside of the box to create unique, guerilla, experiential, and digital experiences. You will be a brand champion, a program manager, and a trusted partner. We will rely on your marketing acumen, your curiosity to learn, and your ability to lead projects and integrated teams.

  • Develop in-depth business reporting and comprehensive competitive analyses

  • Gain a deep understanding of the roles and priorities of the team and key stakeholders.

In the first month you will:

  • Meet with other key partners within the organization (PR, growth, enterprise, SMB, talent operations, etc.)
  • Conduct a competitive analysis to understand our strategic white space and opportunities to stand out.
  • Integrate yourself into the Brand Marketing function team.
  • Start working on some priority initiatives by developing creative briefs in partnership with our partners, and briefing creative and production teams accordingly.

In the first three months you will:

  • Launch your first initiative to drive awareness of Toptal with the Enterprise audience.
  • Brainstorm unique initiatives and ideas to break through with the Enterprise and SMB audiences.
  • Partner with the Brand Director to identify additional projects and opportunities within the organization.

  • Able to develop creative briefs that include insights, data, and clear direction on what’s needed and what success looks like.
  • Agency experience is a plus, but not required.
  • Experience delivering marketing materials (case studies, white papers, etc.) for B2B professional services is preferred.
  • You must be a self-starter with initiative and drive, capable of executing rapidly with limited strategic direction.
  • You must have an exceptional eye for quality and an unwillingness to compromise on the quality of both messaging and design.
  • Experience with the nuances of different forms of marketing tactics and how to adapt messaging and design to each form.
  • Ability to work under pressure and adhere to tight deadlines while never sacrificing quality.
  • You must have excellent verbal and written communication skills and the ability to work well with individuals across a variety of functions.
