The company: We are trumpet, a young, diverse group of people who have come together to transform the world of sales whilst having a lot of fun along the way. We believe we are building something special together and we’d love you to come on the journey with us. About the role: Powerpoint was invented in 1987 and PDFs in 1993, yet we still use these tools 30 years later to sell. In spite of taking considerable time for marketing and sales teams to put together, many go unopened by buyers. On top of this, sales cycles are getting longer and buyer journeys are becoming increasingly complex. It’s time for change and trumpet is ready to lead the digital transformation of B2B sales. Think Shopify + Canva + Slack + Docusign combined, improving the sales flow from pitch to onboarding, centralising buyer journeys and accelerating sales cycles.
The marketing function is pivotal as we want the brand to shape and lead the growth of trumpet, globally. We are creating a category and looking to build an industry-defining product so clear communication and messaging is necessary to help change behaviours while the brand itself should hold its own weight as a brand that users love, admire and are excited by. We as a brand want to stand out from the crowd. We want our users to stand out from the crowd. We are a B2B brand but with a B2C attitude. At trumpet, we fundamentally believe that the best products are built when small, cross-functional, autonomous teams are empowered to solve business problems as they see fit. We never assume what our customers want or need but instead, collaborate with them, to steer the ship, and together achieve greater value from our product. We’re obsessed with delivering continuous and progressive value for them to accomplish their goals and tackle their challenges, head-on.
