Global Marketing Director

BitNami is reinventing the software application experience. Our solution allows users to launch and run popular server applications and development stacks in the cloud and anywhere else just with one click. The simple elegance of our approach has won us fans all across the world. Mostly by word of mouth, BitNami has grown to support over 1 million downloads each and every month. We have also become the largest source of applications for the leading cloud marketplaces including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and VMware.

While we have made great progress as a company and a brand, the journey is just beginning. Our goal is to have every developer, systems administrator and business user demand BitNami each and every time they need to deploy their applications. To accomplish this, we must evolve and permeate our brand, generate even more awareness across our target audiences, expand our partnerships with software vendors and deliver the industry’s best user experience. If this sounds as exciting to you as it is to us, then please consider hopping on the BitNami wave.

We’re looking for a marketing visionary that brings new ideas to the table and the ability to lead and grow a marketing team as the company grows; yet somebody that isn’t afraid to roll up their sleeves to get real work done. We need someone that is comfortable wearing many different hats. Marketing is extremely important to us and we need to find a leader that combines solid experience and passion with the work ethic and motor needed to thrive in a fast-paced startup environment.
